This house cleverly combines traditional period features with modern design to create a unique style.
The spacious living space on the ground floor is impressive and traditionally decorated with wooden floors, neutral rugs and warm pastel colours. There is a lovely gilded mirror over the ornate (working gas) fireplace, and the 'grandfather clock' and dark wooden furniture give it a homely feel. There are two comfortable sofas, an armchair and a large flatscreen tv.
This opens to the modern kitchen, with granite worktops and a mix of neutral white and glass-fronted cupboards. It is fully equipped with everything a modern kitchen should have, and there is also a large and elegant dining table which can comfortably seat 6 people. There is a second living area with a big corner white leather sofa and lots of natural light, thanks to the conservatory style roof which retracts to the open air... perfect for those sunny London days. Keep the roof closed or open it up – it's up to you!
Upstairs you'll reach a cosy roof terrace with a table and chairs for 4 people.
The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, a built in wardrobe and an en suite bathroom with a bath, shower attachment, heated towel rail, sink and a loo. There are French windows from this room out onto a second private roof terrace with a table and seating for 4.
The second bedroom is a double room, with bedside tables, a built in wardrobe, two large sash windows and another en suite bathroom with a bath, a sink and a loo. The third bedroom is a single room, and the third bathroom is large, with a shower head over the bath, a loo and a wash basin.
This spacious home is in a great location for those who want to stay in an upmarket part of London with easy access to Oxford St, Soho, Covent Garden, etc. For some green space and walks the delightful Holland Park is about a 5 minute walk away.

Notting Hill is a cosmopolitan district known for its summer carnival and perhaps more famously, Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts in 'that' movie. It has a contemporary reputation as a fashionable and affluent area, known for attractive terraces of large Victorian townhouses, high-end retail and restaurants – perfect for families of all sizes and ages.
The pastel-coloured homes are as iconic to London as Big Ben, and Portobello Market is a classically British attraction. With stalls of antiques, jewellery, furs, fresh street food and often performers amid the upmarket shops, this in an area which must be visited. Refuel in one of the charming cafes with a cappuccino and some artisan treats, or perhaps choose one of the many restaurants for an impressive dining experience. For cinema with a difference, the Electric Cinema offers leather armchairs, footstools and cashmere blankets.
Nearby Westbourne Grove is the perfect spot for some shopping and brunch at Nicole Farhi's 202 which comprises both café and fashion boutique. The area has also had an association with artists and 'alternative' culture for some time with Notting Hill Arts Club a 'muso' favourite. Its cultural diversity, proximity to central London and large family homes make it a prime location for a stylish stay for all the family.
