Bold and beautiful
For all its original features, Holland Park V is a home of voguish delights, from primary coloured chairs in the playroom to the sitting room's geometric propeller coffee table. Throw wide the double doors of the kitchen and find the glamorous sitting room, all muted shades and decadent bay windows – recline on the chunky corner sofa beside the mottled marble mantelpiece, the gleaming pyramidal planes of the light fixture overhead more form than function. And your location’s just as vibrant – perhaps peacock watching in Kyoto Garden, or an evening's diversion at the Opera Holland Park.
The golden ratio
Your Californian host loves spending time in her fashionable home when not in Paris or the States. A former investment manager, she now prefers more laidback pursuits with her young son, her garden equipped with a barbecue and set of goal posts.
The master bedroom’s wall of panelled mirrors reflects the busy print of the bird wallpaper, a sheepskin rug soft underfoot, while the chic ensuite is double-sinked and deep-tubbed. In the playroom the clue’s in the name: bright, slouchy bean bags ornament an art deco rug, its superior style rivalled only by the yellow bedroom’s daring ceiling, or the bathroom’s glass basin.
Both animated and modern, you’ll find much to admire in this shrine to urban dynamism, and just beyond the threshold you’ve more of the same: the bustling cafés of Holland Park close by, the many-splendored charms of Ladbroke Grove only a little further.
The fireplace in the drawing room is ornamental.
Part of this home is on the lower ground floor which means it gets less daylight than some homes. But it's all the more snug for being so.
The sofabed in the sitting room can accommodate an additional two guests. Please let our reservations team know how the room should be set up for your stay.
This home doesn't have air conditioning. Between June and September, we'll place fans in each bedroom. Please let us know if you'd like fans outside the summer period.
