Notting Hill is always happening. Here are gastropubs, gourmet bakeries, organic cafés and electric cinemas. And you won’t miss any of it from Colville Road III. Nestled between Westbourne Grove and Portobello Road, this relaxing home is just the spot to put up your heels. Solid wood floors set off bold and cheery artworks, while dreamy hues of tangerine and terracotta lend a distinctly Eastern air. So sprawl on the low-slung Japanese bed, or dash outside and find the hubbub of happy shoppers, sippers and diners. Like Notting Hill itself, your hostess seldom stops. She jets around Europe frequently, and this pad – which once belonged to her son – is her pretty pied-a-terre. Up on the third floor, you’ll leave the bustle behind by the time you squish into this home’s dark sofa. Eye the orange accents and graceful white walls, or set about refreshing yourself in the handy kitchen. There’s happiness to be found in the wooden worktops and leafy window view, and four can tuck in heartily at the dusky dining table. Whether you’ve been for brunch at Granger & Co, or browsed Portobello Market, all will be impressed by the Eastern-flavoured double bedroom, to say nothing of the cosy and characterful master.
