Holland Park House Rental Photos and Description
It's A Minimalist Paradise, 3 Bedrm House W/ A Garden In Affluent Holland Park
For those whose lives are curated down to the very last detail, may we introduce Clarendon Road? As white as fresh snow, as fashionable as anything coming off the catwalks in Milan, this pure palace has only recently been finished, and there’s not a piece out of place. Designer furniture perches upon silvery pale floorboards, and the walls display some truly outstanding art. You’re also in one of London’s most refined neighbourhoods- just a short stroll from Kensington and two minutes from the tube. Does it get much better than this? We very much doubt it.
Your hosts are a distinguished pair who flit between Yorkshire, Switzerland and Morocco - Clarendon Road is their London pied a terre. It is no accident that their home is so exquisite, for your host has designed some of the finest of Morocco's boutique hotels.
Cool and crisp, this home is modern living at its finest. Indeed, with both underfloor heating and air conditioning, the atmosphere will never be less than perfect. The gleaming kitchen diner is on the ground floor, where you’ve a garden of zen-like beauty, and a long table from which to admire the equine canvas. Ascend the spiral staircase to the first floor sitting room, and choose between the deep grey corner sofa and the cowhide chaise longue, both with views out across the rooftops from the floor to ceiling windows.
There are two bedrooms on the second floor, a kingsized double and a smaller double/twin. The creamy bathroom is so new it looks untouched by human hand, and is full of our White Company toiletries and fluffy towels. And up on the top floor is the master bedroom. The most civilized of spaces, you’ll love the dressing room and the chic monochrome ensuite, where you’ve a roll topped bath, his and hers sinks and an enormous and powerful shower.
You’re right next to Holland Park, with its green lawns, stables and cricket ground, and within a gentle stroll of Kensington Gardens. Artisan cafes, grocers and bakeries abound. In particular, we suggest carnivores call in on Lidgates, a butcher of national renown. Eat out in Notting Hill, and when it comes to shopping, browse Portobello Road, nip to Westfield or go wild on Kensington High Street. The tube from Holland Park to Oxford Circus takes ten minutes.
