Sheltered from the hustle and bustle of London life, discover Church Close, peacefully tucked away beyond an ancient, wooden gated entrance off Kensington Church Street.
Emerge into a pretty courtyard, landscaped and filled with topiary trees and symmetrical planting; an oasis of serenity in the city.
Occupying part of a four-acre estate once known as Conduit Close, Church Close dates back to the mid 1600s and was acquired by the Vicar of Kensington. Former residents include Princess Sophia, daughter of King George III, and also the first Earl of Macclesfield.
Take the stairs to the second floor to discover Apartment 20. Light shines through the glass panel of the traditional-style hardwood front door, as you emerge into a long entrance hallway with ornate cornicing above and wooden flooring underfoot.
Ahead, an internal window aids light flow while a candelabra-style pendant cascades light down from the high ceiling overhead. Follow the turns of the hallway, feeling the comforting separation between outdoors and within, before arriving at the main living-dining room through the first door on the left.
High skirting boards are another nod to the heritage and style of this home, with large, leaded diamonds capturing views over the street to the front from the broad windows.
Above, a candelabra-style chandelier, suspended from a beam in the ceiling, adds ambience to this area for rest and relaxation. A stone feature fireplace adds further atmosphere, especially when dressed in candlelight.
A home brimming with storage, spy the built-in shelving and cupboards to the right of the fireplace, ideal for storing paperwork, crockery or even for use as a cocktail cupboard.
Conveniently situated across the hallway is the pristine kitchen, with white marble tiling underfoot and marble counters. Grey cupboard units to the lower half of the walls complement the crisp white units above, providing storage for all your culinary essentials.
Spotlighting shines down, illuminating your preparations, aided by the natural light from the tall windows ahead.
Integrated appliances include an electric oven and hob, stainless steel sink, dishwasher and full height, freestanding fridge-freezer.
The marble motif continues through the second door on the right, in the sleek and stylish bathroom. Spacious and bright, tall windows shower light down into the room, reflecting on the white and grey veined marble coating the floor and walls.
Perfect light for preparing your look for the day, an LED, touch-sensor demisting mirrored cabinet is mounted on the wall between the windows. Built-in furniture, coated in marble, surrounds the wall-mounted WC and wash basin, with secret storage beneath the latter.
Revive and refresh in the walk-in shower, fitted with rainfall shower head and handheld attachment. Recessed alcoves are ideal for storing your shampoos and fragrant toiletries.
Additional storage can be found to the left of the door where, above the washing machines, cupboards and shelving rise up above.
Meanwhile, stash your towels and bedding in the linen closet with shelving behind the bathroom door on the right.
At the end of a busy day retreat to the bedrooms, which lie further along the hallway, beyond the archway with its feature transom window above.
Sneak a peek through the door on the right, where a brightly lit bedroom awaits. Tall, wide windows frame leafy views out, drawing light in and filling the room to its high ceiling, embellished by cornicing. The large transom window also draws light through into the hallway beyond.
Plenty of space in here for your double bed, wardrobe and bedside table. Note the antique brass light switches and sockets which feature throughout this home.
Sweet slumber awaits in the master bedroom, privately positioned at the end of the hallway. Within the high ceiling, contemporary-feel lighting delivers illumination to the furthest corners of this spacious bedroom, ably assisted by the natural light which flows in through the large windows overlooking the high street below.
Decorated in a soothing palette of soft grey, this room of relaxation and recumbence has ample space for your double bed and also contains fitted wardrobes for all your clothes.
