Kensington & Chelsea house description

Palace of wisdom

In the 1820s the Ladbroke family began extending their estate, and since then Ladbroke Grove has become one of London’s most desirable areas. Today, the residents of Oxford Gardens are keeping the family spirit alive in their sociable seven bedroom home, and they’re not short of entertainment in bustling Notting Hill, with its upscale boutiques, restaurants, and, of course, the world famous Portobello Road market. After exploring the metropolitan milieu, retire to your personal palace and admire one of a staggering array of rooms, then sit and watch the children play in the garden from the kitchen’s bedecked balcony.

King of the castle

Oxford Gardens has been home to your city financier host for 22 years. He lives here with his German-Polish wife – a successful communications consultant, and their three children. Together they have built this family friendly mansion into an emporium of good taste, filling each room with classic or cutting edge interior design and fabulous heirlooms a-plenty.

Au chateaux

Whet your wanderlust whistle in this epic, four storey, Georgian townhouse. Listen out for whisperings of ancient Rome in the classically-inspired ground floor sitting room, with its decadent busts and champagne drapes, then pad through to the old English library and read a rollicking tale from the comfort of a riveted, leather sofa.

Over in the chrome-filled kitchen, bring the outside in by opening the electronic, sliding glass roof and opening the large balcony doors, or step through to the large, ornate dining room. The fittingly whimsical cloakroom sports bespoke wallpaper featuring famous London scenes.

It’s playtime as you descend to the games room with the garden outside. A snooker table, video system and toy collection jostle for your attention. Sharing the basement space, two bright double bedrooms, each with an ensuite, ensure the kids need never be far from the fun.

Ascend up to the first floor where the master double bedroom sits resplendent in antiques and a super-king size bed. Relax in the huge master ensuite’s free-standing roll-top bath and admire the vintage family photographs that adorns the walls. Next door, a single girl’s bedroom is small and perfectly formed. Up on the second floor, take a trip to decades gone by in the king double and single boys’ bedrooms, each showcasing retro delights- Elvis artwork and neon lights among them. Up here, there's a further double guest bedroom and family bathroom to discover.

Estate of affair.

As well as the vintage trinkets and old schools threads for which the nearby Portobello Road market is famous, Ladbroke Grove is brimming with high end eateries, alternative cultural hubs and postcard architecture. Sidle down to the exclusive Electric for an award-winning lunch, or get lost in Lutyens and Rubinstein boutique bookshop. Central London is 15 minutes away via Ladbroke Grove tube.
