High ceilings, classical cornicing and alluring artwork (dare we say, dashes of Downton...) bring a timeless quality to the majestic drawing room, bathed in natural light from double French doors that sweep out across a balcony. Velvet interiors and a beckoning leather sofa bring warmth to this serene space which is adjoined by a refined music area hosting a grand piano and overlooked by a beguiling wall mural.
The air of classical grace is retained in the dining room, softly decorated in pastel pink hues and adorned with ornate chandelier lighting and captivating abstract art. Overlooking the dining table, the wall hanging is a real conversation starter at mealtimes. While this home exudes period splendour, it’s also fearless in its embrace of modernity where it matters; aptly showcased by the contemporary kitchen with its wrap-around white units, artistic lighting and statement breakfast table. In fact, this townhouse is a gourmand’s dream with another spacious kitchen and dining area upstairs. With the food halls of Harrods and Harvey Nichols in the vicinity, you won’t be lacking for ideas for a decadent home-cooked feast. Film lovers will no doubt find themselves drawn into action in the informal living space which doubles up as a relaxed home cinema room, romantically illuminated by skylights.
Plush linens and gracious lighting encourage an atmosphere of immediate relaxation in all six bedrooms, however it’s the little touches that really capture the essence of this monumental family home. From the winged angel and walk-in wardrobe of the en-suite master bedroom, to the modern vintage interiors that imbue the remaining bedrooms with homely charm, every room exudes individuality. That independent design spirit is triumphantly preserved in all five bathrooms, best encapsulated by the eye-catching art adorning the wall above the bath tub in the master en suite.
The design choices that shift with seamless synchronicity from room-to-room; every storey (fittingly) has a new story to tell in this immense townhouse...
