Smart, form-meets-function design that captures its metropolitan postcode. A laid-back, one-bedroom apartment.
Carved into the raised ground floor of a handsome Victorian townhouse, this one-bedroom apartment slows it down. You get a real sense of Notting Hill’s architectural pedigree here - the streets here are lined with portico entrances and cast-iron railings. Stucco-fronts and pediments. Step inside and the lofty proportions have been refurbished with a modern vision.
It’s an inspired and intuitive property, where lateral living is made versatile. An open doorway lets the reception room flow seamlessly into the kitchen. Pull it closed when you want some privacy. 21st-century sensibilities that elevate its classic silhouette. Yes, there’s original cornicing, an ornate ceiling rose and a marble fireplace but it’s the contemplative artwork that takes centre stage, here. They look even better when illuminated by the natural light that floods in from the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Nestle into the cushions with a morning brew. Equally as good for hushed conversations and intimate gatherings. The eat-in kitchen is fuss-free and beautifully finished. Clink glasses over plates of Alfredo as the sun sets. Or picnic in the landscaped communal gardens at your doorstep. The restful scheme carries well in the bedroom, perfect for couples or single guests. The neighbouring marble-clad bathroom is prime soaking territory – the wide rim is perfect for candles and a merlot.
