Grand slam Sometimes, life deals you something pretty special. And so it is with Stanhope Gardens IV, a scintillatingly arty home filled with books and antiques. Alongside lustrous oils, hand-embroidered linens and inlaid wood you’ve card tables draped in baize, and a veritable flush of carefully selected objets. Go seek out more beautiful objects in the V&A Museum, just around the corner, or take in a concert at the Royal Albert Hall. You’re midway between the cafes, restaurants and designer emporia of Kensington High Street and Knightsbridge, and wonderfully close to Kensington Gardens. Apartments like these don’t come around too often, so we’ll understand if you want to keep this home close to your chest. Full hand Your hosts originated from Eastern Europe, and they’ve filled their home with treasures. They’re a fearsome bridge pairing, as you’ll see from the trophies that crowd the shelves, and when they’re not sizing up their opponents, they’re listening to classical music and making a fuss of their beloved grandchild. With finesse Stanhope Gardens IV is endlessly interesting, its bright, comfortable rooms furnished with a satisfying mix of the old and the new. Take a seat on the contemporary caramel sofa and admire the pretty roses adorning the antique rug, win a rubber at one of two card tables, or simply stand back and gaze upon the outstanding collection of art. The study transforms into a second bedroom with a flip of the sofa bed, and you’ll be enchanted by the flowers that peep so prettily from the cosy master bedroom.
