North by north west
This is a pocket of heaven that offers a cocktail of vintage glamour and laid-back charm in uncharted north London. Drape yourself across the chaise longue, dive into your hostess’ extensive library, or navigate the semi-tropical garden. And even when the air is chill, those full height windows mean you can still sip a rum punch in the sun. Primrose Hill’s cobbled lanes are filled with yummy cafes and exquisite boutiques. Romp in Regent’s Park, marvel at the hummingbirds in London Zoo, and then return home to some rare treasures of your own.
Your hostess lives between London and St Lucia, where she runs retail businesses based in luxury holiday resorts. When she was in her twenties she spent a number of years in Paris, and she’s filled Adelaide Road with the art she bought there.
For all its original features, this home has been extended and opened out, and the result is a collection of wide, spacious rooms, flowing together until they reach the paved garden, lush with foliage. Flowers also deck the sofa, too, and the antique silk rug. And you’ll find art – in sculpture, ceramics and in gilded frames. The bathroom is crisp and clean in marble of black and white, and the bedroom has something of a boudoir about it, with its French glassware and glimmering chandelier.
