This chic Victorian era apartment located on a quiet residential street in west London’s Kensal Green is within a short stroll to some of the area’s best local shops and restaurants.
The row house’s ornate exteriors give way to a bright and simple restoration on the inside. The traditional vertical layout has been lightened and modernized but with much of it’s character in tact.
Located one flight up from the street, the main floor is a warm and inviting space with the original fireplace and bay windows overlooking the streets below. There’s an eat-in designer kitchen as well as a separate dining area here. Guest bedroom, separate toilet and bathroom are accessed from the hallway with its striking wooden floorboards.
The stairs lead to the master bedroom with en suite bathroom nestled into the angled roof line with roof top views of the city.
Maintaining a minimalistic approach, the whitewashed interiors and sparse vintage furnishings open the spaces up, while the clever use of skylights flood the interiors with welcome sunlight.
This is a chic and spacious flat in a great part of the city.
Wifi throughout, TV, laundry facilities, kitchen and bath amenities.
The predominantly residential neighborhood of Kensal Green and Kensal Rise in west London attract a lot of creative people that migrated out of neighboring Notting Hill in the last decades and has a nice village feel, with artisinal shops and cafes. Well connected by tube and bus, it makes it easy to pop over to the center of town. Nearby Notting Hill is probably most famous for its annual carnival in August (and the rom-com), but there’s a lot more to the neighborhood than that. Let’s start with the elegant streets, lined with Victorian townhouses – and Portobello Road, home to the world’s largest antique market, second-hand shops and more. It’s a great place to explore and bargain hunt. It’s also a great area for eating (and drinking) out.
