Queens Gate Gardens VIII

South Kensington, Central London


Art of noise

Both contemporary and traditional, this musical home has a special time signature. At street level, the front door leads directly into the sitting room, with an ornate corniced ceiling. Statement speakers face a collection of keyboards and guitars, and brightly cushioned sofas are a counterpoint to the gilt overmantel mirror and retro rotary telephones on the curved antique sideboard. The rest of this home is on the lower ground floor.

Straight ahead, there’s a breakfast bar for two and dining table for four in the kitchen, which has its own gilded mirror and pair of globe-shaped speakers. The bathroom is on the left, and next door you’ll find two Murphy single beds in the office, lined with books and CDs. At the end of the hallway, the master bedroom has a king-size bed, a neutral ensuite and doors which open to the patio.

Home truths

All rooms except for the sitting room are on the lower ground floor.

This home's entrance is on the lower ground floor.

The two single beds in the second bedroom are Murphy beds.

The fireplace in the sitting room is ornamental.

The master bedroom TV is a Smart TV so will not show freeview channels but will show on-demand services.

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.

Since the onefinestay photoshoot, there have been more instruments added in the sitting room. We will be taking new photographs soon.

This home is spread over two floors with no internal elevator.
