And for my next trick
Ladies and gentlemen, expect the unexpected in this architect-designed townhouse. A playhouse unfurls from nowhere, while down in the hall a wall changes from transparent to opaque at the flick of a switch. Little ones will be delighted by the bright colours and beanbags but there’s plenty for adults, too. Not least the location, close to Wormholt Park and a short walk from the infinite shops, cafés and restaurants of Westfield. You’re a quick cab or tube ride from both Kensington and Notting Hill but best of all, this home is no illusion. It’s gloriously, unbelievably real.
Sleight of hand
Your host is an architect and it is his imagination that supplied the innovative touches that make Keith Grove so special. He resides here with your hostess and their three entertained children.
Could it be magic
The show begins down in the basement, where ping pong balls bounce and the terrace gives way to a climbing wall. The open-plan living space is fun and funky, with mismatched chairs and a dining table hewn from a thick slab of reclaimed wood. And art is everywhere, alongside an array of happy family photos. Each bedroom has its own distinct hue while every sumptuous bed is ready to conjure up another elusive treat: the perfect night’s sleep.
There is no hanging space in the children's double bedroom.
