Three bedrooms. Open-plan living and a suntrap balcony. The right amount of escapism.
Perched on the corner of Talbot Road, this three-bedroom end-of-terrace apartment sits between quintessential Notting Hill and the neighbourhood’s edgy Portobello Road. There’s a peaceful, community-vibe to its leafy streets. Inside, the interiors echo its quiet surroundings.
An inverted layout makes the most of natural light. The third-floor, open-plan living space is framed by concertina doors and thoughtfully placed skylights than channel the sun. Everyday life plays out here. Quiet evenings on the sofa. Clinking glasses with friends around the dining table. Mixing cocktails and cooking mains in the streamlined kitchen. Or pick up a page-turner and head for the snug reading nook – the Eames chair is prime stretching out territory. On warmer days, trade early-evening aperitifs around the breakfast bar for open-air sunsets on the west-facing balcony.
The lower level is devoted to privacy and me-time. The bedrooms are all natural light and ultra-soft textures. Minimalism is the order of the day in the master bedroom, maintained by the spacious walk-in dressing room. The marble-clad en suite keeps morning routines running effortlessly. Pampering in front of the twin vanity. Evenings soaking in the curved freestanding tub. The rest of the floor is given over to two further bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, the other served by a family bathroom. Young adults or lingering guests would be happy here. The third has potential as a brightly-lit home office.
Talbot Road cleverly takes advantage of its top-floor position, too; eaves storage can hide suitcases and the like.
