Take a look at our past. The true spirit of Domus Nova and all we stand for.



Located on the site of the old Portobello Film Studios, this home at Hayden’s Place sits within a small hidden scheme of modernist-inspired private houses designed by Orefelt Associates which were built just over a decade ago. Each property has its own sense of place within the scheme and is cosseted by communal gardens.

This particular house is a remarkable suntrap, enhanced by contemporary styling and a sprawling lateral layout. Internally, angular elevations, recessed lighting and materials such as stone, granite, wood and plaster add to the sense of drama, the highlight being an incredible barrel-vaulted ceiling in the first-floor, west-facing reception room.

Designed by renowned interior decorator Michael Reeves, (a former Andrew Martin International Designer of the Year) the house offers a flexible living and working space with two bedrooms and a master suite located on the first floor. A self-contained bedroom suite is hidden away below the stairs. Overlooking the double-height reception, a top floor mezzanine makes for an exquisitely tranquil working environment and also leads out to a private roof garden - truly a rarity for the area.

Hayden’s Place is something of a legendary address in its exclusive pocket of Notting Hill, and has been a haven for several artistically minded residents including celebrated sculptor Anish Kapoor. It has also continued its connections with the film industry, most recently featuring as a location in a James Bond movie.
