The past may be over, but the best is yet to come, for this home takes the ancient and imbues it with new life. Antiques are everywhere, yet the feel is right up to date. Lacquered wood gleams darkly against a backdrop of honey and cream, while natural fabrics and armloads of sunshine keep the atmosphere floaty-light. You’re within walking distance of Notting Hill and Portobello Road, while for eating out, Golbourne Road’s just the place to find a neighbourhood gem. So come and relax in quiet splendour, for this is where memories are made.
Deal or no deal
Your hosts are a pair of antiques dealers. A blend of English and Irish heritages, when they’re not in London reading and eating out, they can be found at their second home in France.
From Renaissance artwork to European furniture, every piece in this home has been chosen with a care and precision that indicates the eye of a true expert. The living space is open plan, with large windows, pale wooden floors and an elegant fireplace. The dining table and chairs are French-style, while the marble-topped kitchen is sleek, white and modern. Browse your hosts’ collection of books, or venture out onto the cute balcony and take a seat in the sun. There are two double bedrooms, each furnished with exquisitely turned pieces from Britain and the continent, and two bathrooms, one ensuite, both filled with fluffy towels and White Company toiletries. As with all the rooms in this home, you’ll find peace, warmth and high ceilings, and the master bedroom is a particular delight, with its kingsized bed and venerable teddy bear.
If, like your hosts, you enjoy the hunt for precious objects, then make your way to nearby Portobello Road Market, where you’ll discover old oil paintings, fine jewels and vintage clothing. Nip into La Plaza Deli on your way back, or head to Westfield, where you’ll find not just shops and boutiques, but cafes, restaurants and even a champagne bar. Wander in Wormwood Scrubbs Park, or head into town- the tube from Ladbroke Grove to Oxford Circus takes around twenty five minutes.
