Once in a blue moon
Vibrant only begins to describe Dartmouth Park Hill IV. A townhouse apartment with a penchant for pigment, there are no grey areas in this abode’s colour code. Armchairs are mustard, sitting rooms are crimson, kitchens are white with a flash of fuchsia. But nowhere does this home choose shade over substance – witness its Victorian floor tiles and intricate corniced ceilings, its exciting modern artwork and exquisite oriental four-poster. And if the staircase rolls out the orange carpet, the funky bathrooms are simply an open invitation. So stroll through the garden doors and make rosy your cheeks, or take a green-hued tour around Highgate and glorious Hampstead Heath.
In the pink
A civil servant and a barrister, your hosts merged two monochrome apartments to make a rainbow of a home. They have three children and a distinct fondness for the Dorset air.
Savour the view from the top of the hill and prepare yourself for another. From the bare wooden floorboards to each candy-coloured curtain, cushion and children’s toy, this apartment is heady with hues. Make for the sitting room’s slouchy sofas and warming fireplace, or descend to the playful family room and kitchen.
Here you might tinkle the ivories, ready a flavoursome lunch or gaze into the leafy garden from the dark-wood dining bench. And if grownups will purr at the royal-purple master bedroom, younger eyes will surely light up at the child’s bedroom’s delightful mural.
There is no microwave in this home.
As there is no permanent hanging space in the double bedroom, we will provide a hanging rail for your stay.
As there is no permanent storage space in both the oriental bedroom and the child's bedroom, we will provide collapsible wardrobes for your stay.
The home is spread across four floors so there are lots of stairs from top to bottom.
