A new build contemporary house designed by Seth Stein Architects. Set behind a traditional façade within Hillgate Village in Notting Hill the plan extends 26 metres (85 feet) in length and provides accommodation on four floors, arranged around a courtyard that steps back on each level. Constructed to the highest technology and material specification the house achieves a very high environmental rating incorporating photovoltaic glazing and solar panels as well as rainwater harvesting and high thermal insulation. The house consists of three principal bedroom suites and a guest/housekeeper suite. It provides two separate living areas on two levels for formal and less formal living. The upper level incorporates a living, dining and kitchen area. From here a separate staircase leads to a study that is linked to the master bedroom suite. The lower level is a versatile space for media entertainment and exercise, it also has a plunge pool. Elsewhere there is an integral garage, a laundry room and in total four terraces.
