Kensington & Chelsea house description

Up to date

Call on Petersham Mews in times past, and things would seem slightly different. For one thing, you’d need to make room for the carriage as it bowled along the cobbles, and dodge footmen flying to obey their master’s behest. But times change, and few homes have changed like this one. Bright and becoming in blue and white, each bedroom boasts an ensuite, each wall modern artwork, and the lights activate with a sensor. The original stable door keeps history close at hand, and you might even answer the summons to dinner through a speaking tube. And, do rest assured. Outside, South Kensington remains quite as fashionable as it ever was.

Time to spare

Your hosts, too, manage to combine past and present. He is a wooden boat-builder, she a PR consultant. They love to sail the Devon seas, and to stroll in Kensington Gardens when they’re in town.

Present and correct

Like its neighbours, this mews may once have been in the service of Kensington’s high and noble townhouses, but it’s hard to picture a more enviable, or lovely, location. Make your way across those charming cobbles and through the stable doors to the living area. Snazzy and open plan, skylights dazzle its white walls, contemporary artwork and superbly modern kitchen. Pour a suitably vintage wine before selecting whichever retro sofa or armchair you deem the squishiest. A round table seats six and, afterwards, be sure to admire the fantastic feature wall in the hallway, lined with the coolest curios and trinkets.

Upstairs, each of your three bedrooms has its own small but perfectly formed ensuite. You’ve an elegant double, dotted with artwork, and another with a desk and dreamy roof terrace. Tinted the softest summer-blue, the master bedroom is wonderfully designed. With an open plan ensuite and bright skylights, it has the feel of the most indulgent beach house.

Full circle

Amuse your morning hours at the museums and cafes of South Kensington, before taking some park air beside the Serpentine. You’ve the glamour of Chelsea’s Kings Road drawing you in one direction, and the acclaimed fashions of High Street Kensington the other. After dinner, society assembles at the Royal Albert Hall or descends on the theatre houses of the West End. The tube from Gloucester Road to Piccadilly Circus takes under ten minutes.
