The immaculate exterior, finished in red brick with manicured topiary, is a forerunner to the expertly-considered details inside. Open the door to a hallway of geometric tiles, leading you to the social heart of the home. Family life plays out across the open-plan kitchen, dining and living room – imagined with an innovative eye by Chantal Michelin of Flower Michelin. Light is brilliant and plentiful, courtesy of Crittall windows and a skylight. A refined material palette energised with eccentric interiors; note the jugs by Anissa Kermiche and neon sign that once hung in a shop window on bustling Oxford Street. The Richard Emerson kitchen is fit for all culinary adventures, where you can prepare a feast for friends around the dining table. As nights draw in, there’s a kick-back-and-relax TV area with a hidden wine fridge, as well as a formal reception room, the perfect setting to get lost in your favourite book.
Whilst London certainly isn’t short of green spaces, you’d be hard pressed to find a verdant sanctuary to match this garden. Thoughtfully zoned into a trio of social spaces, a vibrant lawn sits between two decked patios. Summertime entertaining sorted.
The charm of period features, such as sculpted cornicing and a tiled fireplace, characterise the light-flooded master bedroom. Its en-suite bathroom, by contrast, is a marvel in modern design: two vanities, a Crittall-framed shower and monochrome tiles is stylish and streamlined. The other four bedrooms are tranquil spaces, finished in Cath Kidston wallpaper, upholstery and bedding – a quintessentially British vision, joyfully blending modern and vintage styles.
