Kensington Olympia, West London
An urban manor An off-road drive takes you to this architect-designed home’s front door. Inside, there are whitewashed walls, blonde wood floors and wide windows. First along the expansive entrance hall is an open-plan living area, with a state-of-the-art kitchen is at one end. Walking past its long dining tables (set beside leather benches), you’ll come to a sitting room with stylish seats, a few accomplished artworks and access to the garden and blue-tiled swimming pool. Then a staircase (alongside which runs a slide) leads up to the first floor, where you’ll find a bathroom and four bedrooms – all distinctively decorated, and one with an ensuite. The fireman’s pole here connects to the kitchen (also accessible by more conventional means), while stairs take you up to another three bedrooms, a bathroom and a semi-circular playroom, plus a lawned terrace. Above them, is the master bedroom – another half-moon room with a smart ensuite ¬– and a second terrace.
