In the heart of incomparable Notting Hill is this charming one bedroom, one bathroom Victorian townhouse apartment. Resplendent in both 19th century wonder and 21st century style, the host’s joie-de-vivre pulses through the old walls.
Spacious and luxurious, and located enviously close to the beating hub of the area, this property is dressed to impress. From here, guests can explore the vibrant streets around them. With rows and rows of stucco-fronted pillar-porched houses, secret gated gardens, artisan boutiques and antique stalls, culture-hungry visitors can’t fail to satisfy their appetites in this unparalleled corner of London.
Your host is a life-loving Scottish-born Australian, whose heritage and diverse aesthetic sensibilities are played out in her abstract art and ceramics collections. She takes care to entertain her guests at home, sharing her epicurean penchant for good food, good wine and beautiful surroundings.
Young at heart
The enduringly desirable facade here gives way to a modern urban retreat where antique allure is juxtaposed with slick, contemporary fittings, and a unique personal style. The large sash windows and much-coveted high ceilings offer valuable insight into this property’s charm.
After a stroll in the endlessly diverting locale, guests can raise a toast to Bacchus around the dining table in the parquet-floored entrance hall. Stunning paintings and earthenware bowls provide a fitting ambience. Gastronomes can perfect the culinary arts in the immaculately finished, modern kitchen or luxuriate in the newly-fitted, spot-lit bathroom, which reveals sleek chrome and porcelain fixtures and stylishly muted slate-grey tiles.
In the sitting room, you can stretch out on a strikingly spacious settee, or peruse the shelves of lovingly collected books. In the morning, the king-size bedroom with its crisp linens, baroque furniture and romantic wooden shutters will make the act of carpe diem seem just that little bit harder.
Since the Ladbroke family began extending their estate in the 1820s, Notting Hill has grown into one of London’s most fashionable and cosmopolitan areas. It boasts upscale boutiques, restaurants and of course the world famous Portobello Road market. Nearby restaurants include the two Michelin-starred The Ledbury and ever-popular E & O. Central London is 15 minutes away from Ladbroke Terrace via Notting Hill Gate tube.
