Property Details

Flat (4 bedrooms)

A Grade II-listed home with an iconic address, this former recording studio-turned-four-bed apartment has a rich cultural heritage. Initially built as an artist’s workshop in the early 20th century by Scottish architect William Flockhart, it was transformed into a recording studio for the likes of Queen and Shirley Bassey before being carved into idiosyncratic apartments. Think double-height rooms, dramatic arched windows and vast glazing that lets natural light flood across its immense 5,000 sq ft blueprint. Spread across two immaculate floors, its soaring heights and open-plan layout are tailored to seamless modern living. Five reception rooms are diffused across the various levels of this apartment. On the ground, a floor-to-ceiling multi-panelled window lets natural light pick up thoughtful details; the ornately engraved fireplace, multi-tonal parquet floors, the gold trim on grey-blue walls and the glass balustrades that frame the mezzanine. It’s thoughtfully zoned, with a reading alcove tucked into the curve of the bay windows. Upstairs, a more intimate gathering area makes the most of its 17ft-high ceilings and vast southwest-facing glazing. Also on this level, an en-suite bedroom currently used as a staff quarters as well as a wood-panelled lounge with wall-to-wall windows and access to a private parking space. On the lower floor, another mezzanine divides this space into two levels; a cosy sitting room in the mezzanine and an open-plan kitchen and living area, lit by a pitched skylight, below. The design is pared-back here, letting furnishings and artwork amp it up. The kitchen is thoroughly streamlined, with wraparound cabinetry, integrated high-spec appliances and a solid wooden island that creates an ergonomic dynamic. Note the low-slung chandeliers that hang above the dining table. Next door, a purpose-built cinema room with a picture house feel. The rest of the floor is given over to the bedrooms, gym, steam room and wine room. The decadent master suite is a practice in art deco with soft pink walls, a marble fireplace and a palm-themed lighting fixture. Two further en-suite bedrooms are quiet retreats – one benefits from a hexagonal skylight.

Located in the heart of Notting Hill, this apartment is perfectly situated close to the many boutiques, bars and eateries found on Holland Park and Portobello Road. Holland Park and Ladbroke Grove Underground stations are also close by.
