A balanced fusion of original modern art and large scale colourful abstract textiles adorn the expansive white walls, mixed in with personal touches and objects trouve’, give this home an undeniable aura of elegance with a twist of spirited bohemian style.
After a busy day out in the capital, stretch out in the open plan 45 foot room spanning 2 super spacious reception areas with 2 deep plush sofas and enjoy the unique experience of cooking a meal in the cutting edge German bulthaup b3 kitchen. Or head out to a family dinner at Pizza East or any of the other great restaurants and bars within easy walking distance.
Privacy and quiet are another key feature of Sunswept Loft which is tucked away, through a gate and down a ferny landscaped path. As if that was not enough, open blue sky views onto the park in front allow the sun to spill in unobstructed through all six windows, ensuring this home earns its reputable name.
You cannot get any more high end than the state of the art ultramodern German bulthaup b3 kitchen (bulthaup.com). A fully integrated Gaggenau fridge/freezer (akin to Subzero), dishwasher and a stainless steel freestanding Viking Professional 4 burner stove will delight the serious foodie.

WIFI is of course standard. There's a Bowers and Wilkins A7 wireless Airplay dock for your tunes and a top of the range 40' Samsung D8000 HD 3D TV, including Netflix streaming movies and full cable with premium channels for those quieter evenings in.
A short flight of stairs takes you to three well appointed double bedrooms all with luxurious sprung mattresses and five star sheets. The sumptuous master bedroom has a super king size bed and there are a further 2 double bedrooms each with 2 single/twins sleeping four more people. Large velux pivoting windows let in lots of natural light which can be subdued with awning shades when a dark atmosphere is desired.
To soak away the effects of tramping around London, a steaming hot bath can be had in the oversized old fashioned cast iron tub in the roomy family style bathroom, while the 2nd bathroom has a spacious walk in shower with a large rain effect shower head, a delightful way to start or end your carefree London day.

About the owner: This American owner has been living in London for 20 years having grown up in the sunny climes of Santa Barbara, CA where we spend our family vacations. We have has been hosting guests in our carefully managed home for over 5 years as demonstrated by a consistent five star feedback rating of contented families who have made life long memories of their holidays here.
Why the Owner Chose Kensington & Chelsea:
Notting Hill and the life blood that is Portobello Market is inspiring to be a part of each day. It is a real neighbourhood in the old fashioned sense. Daily trips to Portobello Road for your morning capp, procuring of vegetables & fruit from old fashioned greengrocer stalls in the market itself and generally soaking up the wonderful atmosphere, make this area very special. It has retained it's individual feel through wonderful mix of ethnicity adding to the local flavour. Leafy streets, great architecture and the wonderful open green space of Kensington Memorial Park literally next door are wonderful amenities. The tennis courts in the park and the playground area is a real godsend for kids who need to let off steam after a long day of sightseeing!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This unique home has an abounding sense of space and light from having windows on three sides. The sun rises through the kitchen window and sets through the sitting room windows, while during the day it travels around the 3 windows on the side of the house. The lateral home has great flow and can absorb a family comfortably so everyone has their own space, as opposed to the more typical vertical terraced housing where communal areas tend to be in one room on different floors.
