Rare indeed is the home that has everyone smiling. Along a slumbering side-street, green of leaves and all handsome townhouses, Leamington Road Villas II is remarkably easy to love. At once chic and antique, calming and colourful, it won’t just be the kitchen that appeals to every taste. In fact, there’s a special place for each part of the family. The little ones have a whole floor of playrooms and Lego, while you go for a wallow in the master bedroom’s lush walk-in ensuite. It’s arty and eclectic throughout, which reminds us. Notting Hill is only round the corner.
Across the board
Your hostess is an entertainment lawyer who works from home. A home that she styled herself, no less! The family have three children and love spending their time in London's many parks.
All things to all men
There’s certainly much to like in your location. Quiet yet close to the buzz, it has everything going for it. And so does this home. A cosy corner sofa lures you into the sitting room, where designer furniture is coupled with fetching antiques. Eye up the contemporary artwork, or fire up the soundsystem and stride over to the dining table, alongside a wall of exotic masks. The kitchen is sleek and bright, and you’ve an inviting desk area, too.
A marble bust beckons you upstairs, up to the bedrooms. The sumptuous master has a whole floor to itself. Plush in purple, you’ve a super king size bed, a fabulous wardrobe of floral design and even a snug TV area complete with sofa and ornate fireplace. All that, and a lavish walk-in ensuite, too. But don’t expect the kids to be too impressed. They’ll be on the top floor, home to a Lego-filled playroom, two bubbly bedrooms and a further bathroom.
You’re only a matter of footsteps from Notting Hill’s many and lively attractions. There are the glamorous shops of Westbourne Grove, the lost treasures of Portobello Road and the Michelin-starred fare of the nearby Ledbury. As far as green spaces go, few are lovelier than Kensington Gardens, although Holland Park comes close. And there’s certainly something for everyone in the West End. The tube from Westbourne Park to Oxford Circus takes around twenty five minutes.
