This third-floor apartment in South Kensington is acutely designed, with angles, edges and a rich black-and-white colour scheme. The floorboards are dark wood and lead from the entrance to the open-plan sitting and dining room. A grey sofa is opposite this room’s door, and perpendicular there’s a long dining table with comfy seating enough for six. These chair-backs are the room’s only departure from straight edges – the side and coffee tables are modern and angular, like the marble mantelpiece opposite the seating area.
This home’s host is similarly slick: he works in tech startups and spends much of his time in Silicon Valley. That’s what makes the dining table’s potted ornamental flowers so surprising. But the two bedrooms and bathroom (you’ll find them leading off from the entrance hall) look as sharp as the living area, all white walls and black picture frames, and free of clutter.
The home does not have a lift, so although this home welcomes babies, toddlers and children, there are a number of stairs leading up to the home.
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.
There are stairs up to the entrance of this home, and no elevator.
