Property description

Thoughtfully refurbished, this cosy, dream house is located in a quiet crescent, overlooking a child friendly gated communal garden. The front door is set back from the road by the gorgeous, private front garden. Water features, birds and an abundance of colour surrounds as you relax on the garden chair whilst watching the evening sun set over Notting Hill.
The warm, traditional soft furnishings and beautifully lit, colour-blushed interior makes for a gorgeous, sumptuous living space which instantly relaxes. It has been well thought out with a single open plan ground floor carefully split into living, cooking, dining and study areas.

The house is very quiet and is blessed by having no neighbours to the rear. Opening the patio doors at the back to link the patio with the kitchen and dining areas makes for a wonderfully peaceful al fresco ambience. A far cry from the London buzz.

And the buzz… the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is home to some of the most interesting and enjoyable attractions in London. From the ever-hip King's Road in Chelsea to the more recently popular Westfield Shopping Centre, Notting Hill Gate and Portobello Road; the shopping heaven that is Kensington High Street & Harrods; the fantastic greenery and scenery of Kensington Gardens; to some of London's top museums, located in South Kensington. St Marks park, only 5 minutes walk from the house, boasts a fantastic water park and adventure playground for the kids and a charming outdoor café for the parents.

The wonderful local bars and eateries are a treasure easily discovered and a short tube or bus ride is all that separates you from the glittering delights of the West End and London city centre.

Owned by a very successful film director, the aesthetic luxury and homeliness of the interior is a testimony to the owner's many years of experience behind the silver screen. A stay here will leave you inspired and hopefully full of wonderful memories from this eclectic city.

10 Minutes walk to Portobello Market (the World's largest antiques market), short bus ride to Notting Hill and Westfield (Europes largest shopping centre) and just 5 minutes walk from St Marks Park. There is even a gated communal garden between the house and the busier Barlby road which keeps the place quiet and makes a great play area for the kids.

Year Purchased: 1980

About: I love the energy of London, and in my house I have strived to create a quiet corner to come back to. I don't do anything without giving it 110% and that is particularly true about my home. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Why Kensington & Chelsea:
The rich blend of cultures and artistic influences makes London a beautifully unique city and I consider myself lucky to have found this corner of it for myself. The area around this property is gifted and is widely considered to be the best corner of London, quiet enough to relax yet close to the great attractions.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Having Portobello Road just 10 minutes walk away is fantastic and the tube and bus services are wonderful for getting to any other part of London. The world famous Notting Hill Gate, the West End, London's incredible free museums and Hyde Park to name but a few places all very easily reached via a walk or bus which you can catch just 100metres from the house.
