A two-bedroom home that reworks period proportions for seamless, modern living.
From the raised ground floor of an end-of-terrace townhouse, this two-bedroom apartment amplifies the peace and quiet of the residential streets outside. Yes, the cast-iron railings, Georgian symmetry and portico-fronted entrance ground it in Notting Hill’s exclusive architectural pedigree but step past the tapered columns to discover a story of new beginnings.
The open-plan kitchen and reception room is zoned for cooking, dining and lounging. You can really kick back here. Sink into the sofa with a glass of red before cooking mains in the sleek, ergonomic kitchen. The cosy dining spot can be used as a window seat, too. Its east-facing vantage point means the natural light is best in the morning. Flick through the day’s papers as you sip on a warm brew.
The understated master bedroom, with its forest green walls and full-length window, has a down-to-earth vibe – a welcome quality after the highs of exploring nearby Westbourne Grove. Stash the spoils of your adventures in the built-in wardrobes before winding down in the en suite. Wash away life’s stresses in the frameless shower, clad in ivory-coloured tiles that are laid on the diagonal. The second bedroom, with its soft tones and south-facing oversized window, is served by a family bathroom. An independent storage area in the hall is perfect for storing empty suitcases.
On your doorstep: the manicured lawns of Westbourne Gardens. When you need a breather from city life, it’s the kind of spot that will make you forget you’re in central London.
