Pleasantly planted between Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, Bullingham Mansions is as pretty as an English rose. From the click of the wrought iron gate to the trickle of water in the courtyard’s fountain, this home is all tradition. Yet step inside and you’ll unearth fresher notes – colour, character and teacups abound. The patterned wallpapers flow from pastel florals to cute illustrations, while period armchairs and velvet textures provide plenty of spots to get cosy in. But before getting too settled, be sure to sample Kensington’s shops and restaurants, both just a stroll away.
Your hosts divide their time between the Middle East, the West Country and London. But for all their adventures abroad, they love coming back to their charming patch of Kensington, especially with their children nearby at university.
Shades of soft lilac, coffee and blue-grey lend this home a gentle touch, and you’ll also find shapely sculptures and period sash windows holding sway in the sitting room. Admire the collection of china adorning the geometric shelves, or fix supper in the glossy kitchen just beyond.
And when it’s time to draw the curtains, you’ll find flowing wood floors give way to soft cream carpets in the bedrooms – which are both hushed, handsomely furnished and papered in glittering florals.
This home doesn't have air conditioning, however, there are ceiling fans in both the second and third bedrooms to keep you cool. Nevertheless, please let us know if you'd like more fans for your stay.
The second bedroom in this home faces bustling Kensington Church street. However, the windows are very well insulated and you should barely be able to hear the noise.
This home is only suitable for adults.
There are stairs up to the entrance, and no elevator.
