ALL ABOUT SPACE & LIGHT LOFT STYLE HOUSE NOTTING HILL PORTOBELLO ROAD

Notting Hill House Rental Photos and Description

Unique lateral loft studio house 2 bed/2 bath sleeps 7 Notting Hill Portobello

The brief on this brand spanking newly furnished architect and interior designed lateral home was to create a light and airy feel, make it cosy but modern, and grown up but not stuffy. 100% achieved. This gorgeous home, equally suited to a family or for a romantic getaway, packs it all in with a 45 foot room spanning 2 large and spacious reception areas with 2 custom sofas: one so oversized that you can lounge four people comfortably (it’s 13 ft by 4 ft to be exact).

Owned by a seriously peripatetic family who are currently stationed in NYC for a few years, the well dressed open plan living space glows with a pale freshness created by a carefully chosen colour palette, acres of ground floor space for roaming around in and custom furnishings everywhere you glance. The overall result is delightful English sensibility meets American wide open spaces.

You won’t be caught short on neighbourhood action in Notting Hill. The whole area is buzzing with great shops, cafés, bars and family friendly restaurants. Having had your fill of this fashionable neighbourhood, you can jump on the bus at the stop right outside the house, to take you and your brood to the further sightseeing delights of the capital - all within easy transport of 1/2 hour.

The galley style featureless kitchen has everything you need to produce a family meal to be enjoyed at the large modern, gleaming table with swivel chair seating for up to 8. After which time you can settle down in front of the 46” flat screen to catch some great British television or a DVD.

Privacy and quiet are further key benefits of this home which is set off the street down a leafy fern strewn landscaped path. In fact its so private no one can see the house from the street.

WIFI is of course standard, there is a set Bose powered speakers to plug your tunes into, while you are enjoy great views of park life via windows flanked on either side of the living room that are set off by a massive crumbling Victorian mirror in between.

Sleeping arrangements are spread across two lovely bedrooms. The master has a queen bed and a luxurious marble clad en suite with roomy shower, the 2nd bedroom is a cosy space with a double bed and a single bed that can sleep 3 in comfort: all with wall mounted swivel reading lamps and custom headboards and valances in neutral linen stripes. Both bedrooms have large pivoting velux windows with black out blinds when complete darkness is desired.

The 2nd spacious bathroom has a large tub and hand shower and gleams all white marble throughout.

Finally, a custom pull out double sofa bed in one of the reception areas can sleep your rangy teenager wanting his own space or another couple as the case may be, making this home work any which way for whatever guest configuration is needed.

Your hosts are a very British family (Scottish to be exact) that have lived all over the world. Based in NYC for the foreseeable future, the host works with the UN resolving world conflicts. They have asked me to manage their home for vacation rentals whilst managing my own home which I have been offering to guests for several years now and attested by strong 5 star feedback. I am excited to be offering 'all about space and light' as a sister property my own. They go hand in hand. I am American and grew up in Santa Barbara, CA and have been living in London for 20 years where I am raising my family.

Notting Hill and the life blood that is Portobello Market is inspiring to be a part of each day. It is a real neighbourhood in the old fashioned sense. Daily trips to Portobello Road for your morning capp, procuring of vegetables & fruit from old fashioned greengrocer stalls in the market itself and generally soaking up the wonderful atmosphere make this area very special. It still retains it's individual feel and there is a wonderful mix of ethnic races which add to the local flavour. Leafy streets, great architecture and the wonderful open green space of Kensington Memorial Park literally next door are wonderful amenities. The tennis courts in the park and the playground area is a real godsend for kids!

This unique west facing home has a wonderful feeling of space and light which it gets from it's double height ceiling and windows on three sides and is what makes this home unique. This house has great flow and can take a large family comfortably so everyone can be doing their own thing without bumping into each other such as in more typical terraced housing where the houses are very narrow and the light source is only from the front and back of the house.
