This architect's large 3/4 bedroom family home has an amazing open plan living space and garden.
The bay window at the front houses one dining area with a wooden table as well as a piano and a beautiful feature fireplace. The contemporary white kitchen, with bright red splash-back, is centred in the room with the two dining areas either side. It contains all the mod cons you'd expect - dishwasher, washer/dryer, double oven, microwave, fridge freezers (x2) and a Nespresso coffee machine.
Towards the back of the house is the living area which is flooded with natural light from the garden. Here the stylish furniture surrounds a library and a plasma TV mounted above a modern fireplace. You'll find 3 double sofas to sink into - a perfect spot to take advantage of the reading material or the TV and entertainment system.
A further dining area sits right by the huge sliding doors which take you outside the west-facing private garden and outdoor eating area. The ground floor also has a WC and hallway hanging space for coats.
Up to the first floor and the master bedroom is bright with silver and blue patterned wallpaper and built-in robes. There's a king-sized bed with a tv and DVD player. On through to the modern en suite and you'll find a shower, heated towel rail, a wall of mirrors and a WC.
The second bedroom has bunk beds, a chest of drawers, desk, a Juliet balcony and lovely pink dÃƒÂ©cor. The third bedroom is simply decorated with a feature wall of wallpaper, a large chest of drawers and a sofa (which converts into a bed). Depending on your requirements, this can be kept as an additional room for reading, dressing or playing, ideal with its sunny aspects, or made into a bedroom. Both of these bedrooms share the second bathroom which is fully tiled in cream with a bath and shower fitting, WC, bidet and heated towel rail.
The top floor has been converted into a cosy loft bedroom with a double bed underneath a big map of the world. It is well lit with a large curtained window, wardrobe and dresser units.
Space is not an issue for traveling families or friends in this house! Its style is delightfully relaxed and welcoming and you're sure to feel at home.
With the famous Portobello Road market and the heart of Notting Hill just over a 5 minute walk away, you'll enjoy the lively neighbourhood with its cafes, restaurants, market and boutique shops as well as its many pubs and bars. The area holds much in the way of entertainment, whatever your interest, including the world famous Notting Hill Carnival at the end of August, which is a mark to the cultural vibrancy of this area. The green spaces of Holland Park and Kensington Gardens are also close by.
For venturing into other parts of London, you're about a 7 minute walk to either Ladbroke Grove or Latimer Road Underground stations (Hammersmith & City line) or 10 minutes to White City Underground (Central line). From here, you can reach Oxford St and Soho in approximately 20 minutes.
Area Description: "Notting Hill is a cosmopolitan district known for its summer carnival and perhaps more famously, Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts in Ã¢â‚¬Ëœthat' movie. It has a contemporary reputation as a fashionable and affluent area, known for attractive terraces of large Victorian townhouses, high-end retail and restaurants perfect for families of all sizes and ages.
The pastel-coloured homes are as iconic to London as Big Ben, and Portobello Market is a classically British attraction. With stalls of antiques, jewellery, furs, fresh street food and often performers amid the upmarket shops, this in an area which must be visited. Refuel in one of the charming cafes with a cappuccino and some artisan treats, or perhaps choose one of the many restaurants for an impressive dining experience. For cinema with a difference, the Electric Cinema offers leather armchairs, footstools and cashmere blankets.
Nearby Westbourne Grove is the perfect spot for some shopping and brunch at Nicole Farhi's 202 which comprises both cafÃƒÂ© and fashion boutique. The area has also had an association with artists and Ã¢â‚¬Ëœalternative' culture for some time with Notting Hill Arts Club a Ã¢â‚¬Ëœmuso' favourite. Its cultural diversity, proximity to central London and large family homes make it a prime location for a stylish stay for all the family."
