Kensington Gardens Square, W2
You know the feeling… You see the apartment, you love the furniture, you want the curtains, and you can’t live without the artworks. Perfect scenario; this apartment came with the full works – a carefully curated selection of some of the design world’s favourites. With more than a nod to our European friends, the collection combines Scandinavian design with British craftsmanship and Italian and Spanish luxury, supported by contemporary art and accessories. Like a great cup of coffee, soft shades of browns and cream, peppered with short shots of stronger colour set the tone for relaxed and easy living. Soft furnishings by Natuzzi, Camerich and Verzelloni, floating beds by Lago, furniture from Bo Concept and Indian Ocean combine with silk rugs from Jacaranda, bespoke cabinetry and a state-of-the-art kitchen. It’s all here so simply open the door, tell your friends it’s all your own hard work and start living the dream.
Kensington Gardens Square is one of Bayswater’s loveliest. Just minutes from Hyde Park, this little enclave personifies the iconic London look that keeps enticing overseas visitors and residents alike and has created one of the most multi-cultural communities in the world. Quiet, proud stucco fronted streets of period houses wrapped around a private green space, just minutes from the buzz of Westbourne Grove. This two bedroom apartment, at the top of one such building has been cleverly reimagined as a two storey residence. Presented as an upside down living arrangement with the bedrooms below, an orangery style new build on the roof with wrap around windows houses the reception room and kitchen which open directly onto a garden terrace with a further reception and dining area outside. This is a home to entertain in and should the great British weather oblige, the open-plan indoor and outdoor reception area doubles the space available for friends and family. And if the rain starts, you can simply sit back in your surroundings and bask in the compliments that will undoubtedly shower upon you. Shouldn’t every home be bought this way?!
