In the open
If the Big Smoke leaves you breathless, if you long for endless skies and fresh air, Barlby Road IV is the home for you. Expanses of glass give its large rooms an airy feel, and the garden has views both far and wide. With Victorian tiling, vintage furniture and all manner of fascinating curios, this is a house to satisfy roving spirits. Pack a sandwich and head for Portobello Road Market, journey across Wormwood Scrubs park, or dip down through Notting Hill to Kensington’s museums – here the final frontier is simply the limit of your imagination.
Your hosts are a young family who count their neighbours among their firm friends, some of whom having been in situ for over 20 years. They renovated Barlby Road IV themselves and are now preparing for their next adventure, a road trip across the USA.
Natural flooring, doors of stripped wood and neutral textiles give this home a soothing earthiness, offset by vivid watercolours and pretty murals. Your hosts have filled their home with fun – a tambourine, a vintage typewriter, a gramophone horn and a guitar of lapis blue – along with books, antiques, and some wonderful toys.
The country kitchen opens out into the garden, where you’ve potted herbs, a decked seating area and a powerful BBQ, and upstairs, the master suite is a study in subtle grace, with its bay window, gently distressed paint and elegant chaise longue.
