A golden opportunity
Pull back the luxurious curtains of the master bedroom and let your feet sink into the sumptuous carpets – here at Gloucester Square you needn’t sacrifice comfort for grandeur. This Georgian home is awash with carefully restored period features – carved ceilings, ornate cornices, antique fireplaces – and adorned with elaborate details, from gilt-framed mirrors to decorative rugs. And while the kitchen and polished-chrome ensuite bathrooms are a little less opulent, they’re every bit as luxurious, all gleaming appliances and sparkling tiles.
The silver lining
Your retired host and his business consultant wife are connoisseurs of culture, often taking time out from the busy capital to enjoy southern hemisphere winters in Cape Town, and cosy weekends in their countryside retreat.
Bronze and baroque
The baroque sitting room showcases towering bamboo shoots, a marble hearth and intricately patterned cabinets, but the centrepiece is undoubtedly the carved bronze figure seemingly propping up the glass table top. From here, tall double doors open into the airy dining room, where you’ve delicate paintings of the leafy countryside – linger over dinner while looking out over the pretty gardens of Gloucester Square.
And though the velveteen sofas are particularly appealing, from your enviable location the refined delights of London are too – stroll through the park to the elegant streets of Mayfair, or venture a little further to the bars and bistros of glitzy Notting Hill.
