St Lawrence Terrace, W10
It is easy to comprehend why St Lawrence Terrace was described by its previous owners as ‘the perfect home’. With five bedrooms, a study, roof terrace, garden and front yard, there simply isn’t anything this house doesn’t have - oh yes, the property also spans across five floors, meaning the proud new owners have plenty of space to wine, dine or just relax – whether they want to do so together, or not! Facing towards St Michaels Gardens, St Lawrence Terrace is one of W10’s most desired streets, located just minutes from a vast array of boutiques, restaurants and bars.
Designed, and indeed styled, to perfection, this exceptional, luxurious home exhibits a clever understanding of colour and space, contrasting delicate furniture detail with rich, moody tones and plush fabrics. During refurbishment, the bespoke sweeping staircase, with its curved corners and flowing handrail, was the real statement piece. Acting as the architectural nucleus of the house, it allows vast amounts of light to flow through from the skylight on the fifth floor all the way to the lower ground floor. Having mined a pool of talented local designers and overseas creatives, this home is full to the brim of stimulating, bespoke furnishings that strike an optimum balance between the grandness of the building’s exterior and the contemporary use of internal space. The antique chairs were sourced from Phoenix, the Beni Ourican rug from Marrakech and the stunning brass rocking chair from Brazilian designer Jader Almeida to name a few.
St Lawrence Terrace has been meticulously considered to ensure that each floor maximises as much of its space as possible. The lower ground floor is home to the open plan kitchen / sitting area which, apart from the utility room and guest bathroom, occupies the entire internal space that opens out onto the front yard. The flow in this house is phenomenal! With clever interior choices to delight in and vast amounts of entertaining space to be enjoyed outside, the opportunities to indulge in life here are endless!
