This exceptional 4 storey house with private west-facing garden is located in one of Notting Hill’s most attractive tree-lined streets. Refurbished by the current owners with no expense spared, this 3 bedroom (plus study), 2 bathroom eco-friendly house is functional, spacious and filled with natural light.
On the lower ground floor is a modern open-plan kitchen with AGA Masterchef cooker, Rangemaster extractor, white Artisan Quartz work surfaces and concrete resin-topped floor. The washing machine and dishwasher are located here. The breakfast bar overlooks the dining room which has a traditional gas fireplace and original shutters.
Beyond the kitchen is a sun-filled garden room complete with large sloping glazed roof, plantation shutters and bi-fold doors that open to the charming landscaped garden.
A study – which could be a 4th bedroom – can be accessed from both the garden room and the hallway.
The ground floor comprises formal and informal living areas. Lime-washed oak floors and pocketed fire-resistant glass sliding doors create a wonderful sense of space and light. The original early Victorian marble surround fireplace with wood burner is a focus of this lovely room. New traditional cornices and skirting boards feature throughout.
The master-suite occupying the whole 1st floor, overlooks a flowering Magnolia tree in the front garden. The bedroom has a gas fireplace with Bolection surround and the ensuite bathroom provides fitted wardrobe space, a double basin, heated towel rack and walk-in shower.
On the top floor there is a spacious 2nd bedroom and bathroom with white-stained pine flooring and built-in cupboards. One cupboard, cleverly concealed in the bathroom, houses the boiler and energy efficient dual water tank (partly heated by solar vacuum tubes on the roof).
The 3rd bedroom, currently configured as a study with built-in desk, shelving and filing cabinet, is nestled on the 1st floor half-landing.
The house is fully insulated with high quality wool insulation inside the walls and beneath the floors. Storage space is available above the guest WC, in the vault and under the kitchen stairs.
The property benefits from a pre-planning agreement in place with Westminster Council, to add a further floor (subject to formal planning permission being granted). This additional floor could be configured as a bedroom/bathroom suite or 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. Further information on the pre-planning agreement can be provided on request.
This magnificent property provides easy access to Westbourne Grove and Portobello Road featuring some of London’s most fashionable restaurants, cafes and boutiques. A range of transport links and top schools are located in the area.
