Overlooking Primrose Hill, and so close to Regent’s Park that one might hear bees drowsily bothering the flowerbeds, sits Albert Terrace. Inside, this late-Georgian home is one of beguiling majesty, not least since it was built for a doctor of Queen Victoria. With its original features recently restored to former glories, from the sitting room’s richly panelled walls to the splendour of the fresco swathing the dining room, you’ve got beauty on both sides of the front door. And, with the West End just the other side of the park, this truly is a home for reveller and relaxer alike.
Home from home
A lively family of four, your hosts think their apartment the very finest in Primrose Hill. And, speaking as Londoners born and bred, they know what they’re talking about. Away from the capital, their favourite haunts are Edinburgh (for the festival) and New York.
Skip through the splendid period hallway to the sitting room, panelled in polished mahogany and glinting with opulence at every turn. Here, ease a volume from the shelves and bask before the bay window on one of two gold-hued sofas. The sleek kitchen oozes style, all funky wallpaper and glowing countertops, while the dining room is positively palatial. High-ceilinged and encircled by the most stunning fresco, ten can sit and feast their senses at the handsome table.
You’ve a magnificently mirrored cloakroom, as well as a bathroom brimming with tasty White Company toiletries. The master suite is as grandiose as it is comfortable, a super king bed and elegant chaise longue perched before golden walls, while bay windows open onto a dreamy balcony. A cute, girly twin bedroom beckons along the hall, and there are two further doubles to choose from, both with ensuites and decorated in the highest style.
You may chance upon a famous face or two in one of Primrose Hill’s elegant cafes and bookshops. Gourmands can indulge in a cupcake at the Primrose Bakery, or you can save your appetite for the delectable fare at the York and Albany. Amble through rosy Regent’s Park towards the zoo, or keep walking for Oxford Street and the West End. If you want a change of pace, the tube from heady Camden Town can have you in Oxford Circus in ten quick minutes.
