Observatory Gardens, W8


Property Details

Flat (2 bedrooms)

A two-bedroom apartment that is both a breather from and on the doorstep to the energetic thrum of High Street Kensington. Tree-lined Observatory Gardens – all porticos, decorative brickwork and cast-iron railings – is a quietly impressive street. In this old-meets-new property, thoughtful details seamlessly transition between traditional and contemporary. Yes, ornate cornicing, canted bay windows and an engraved fireplace echo its rich pedigree. But the high-gloss marble, open-plan layout and low-slung lighting give it a timeless appeal. Enter on the ground floor, where the free-flowing reception room is subtly zoned for cooking, dining and lounging. Natural light floods through the south-facing windows and across the solid, espresso-tinted floors. Cook mains in the stylish-yet-streamlined kitchen with handleless cabinetry and integrated, high-spec appliances. Serve at the dining table, beneath the sculptural, modern chandelier. Wooden accents, earthy tones and considered, contemporary living continue in the master bedroom on the lower-ground floor. Think wall-to-wall wardrobes, a south-facing view and a dedicated dressing space. Dual-aspect windows keep it naturally bright. The en suite is smart in form and function; Carrara-marble surfaces, a frameless waterfall shower and a dual vanity. Access to a stone-clad terrace, too. A second bedroom is served by another slick en suite and built-in wardrobes. At the front, a concierge keeps the day running smoothly.

Minutes from High Street Kensington, Observatory Gardens is a peaceful street, where the architecture reflects the borough’s old-world heritage. To the east, Kensington Palace and the regal Hyde Park. To the west, the Design Museum and the ancient woodland of Holland Park. Find your zen in the Kyoto Garden. Dip between the boutiques and bars that line the high street. Pick up a loaf of tangy sourdough at Gail’s before heading home.
