The polished streets and verdant surrounds of Holland Park II will set expectations high. And inside this elegant home, they’ll be more than met. Silken drapes, marble features and antique pieces hark back to a more decadent era, and oriental rugs and plump cushions in red and gold are bright against the muted twinkle of the collection of crystal decanters. But before you settle on the sitting room’s generous sofa, take a moment to appreciate the well-kept garden. You may wish to pause at the wrought iron table on the communal lawn instead.
Your host is a frequent traveller, but her love of the arts draws her regularly back to London’s cultured streets. When she’s not scouring the local galleries for additional pieces to add to her collection, she’s attending the theatre or opera nearby.
Extraordinary is the watchword here – from the bold features to the finer details. The master bedroom’s curtained four-poster and gilded cabinet are impressive, and the sitting room is hung with dramatic oils. Upon closer inspection, you’ll find delicate china crockery sitting pretty on the kitchen’s countertops, and a cosy breakfast nook with seating for two. And beyond this home’s grand entrance there’s more finery to be found. Scenic Holland Park, renowned Portobello Road Market and the many amusements of the West End are all just around the corner.
