Made for the movies in Notting Hill, Kensington
Notting Hill is a cosmopolitan district known for its summer carnival and perhaps more famously, Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts in ‘that’ movie. It has a contemporary reputation as a fashionable and affluent area, known for attractive terraces of large Victorian townhouses, high-end retail and restaurants – perfect for families of all sizes and ages.
The pastel-coloured homes are as iconic to London as Big Ben, and Portobello Market is a classically British attraction. With stalls of antiques, jewellery, furs, fresh street food and often performers amid the upmarket shops, this in an area which must be visited. Refuel in one of the charming cafes with a cappuccino and some artisan treats, or perhaps choose one of the many restaurants for an impressive dining experience. For cinema with a difference, the Electric Cinema offers leather armchairs, footstools and cashmere blankets.
Nearby Westbourne Grove is the perfect spot for some shopping and brunch at Nicole Farhi’s 202 which comprises both café and fashion boutique. The area has also had an association with artists and ‘alternative’ culture for some time with Notting Hill Arts Club a ‘muso’ favourite. Its cultural diversity, proximity to central London and large family homes make it a prime location for a stylish stay for all the family.

A modern and spacious renovation, this apartment is at the top of a gorgeous Georgian listed end of terrace house. Spread over two floors, the rooms benefit from lots of light through ample windows, showing off some great views of the local area.
Each room has its own character, designed with choice bits of furniture and artworks, giving this home a designer chic feel. Period features, such as the fireplaces, fuse the modern with the old.
The master bedroom is great size, with a bed to match this grandness, and fitted wardrobes, a dresser table and vanity mirror fit for a film star. The main bathroom has a rolltop bath, sink, WC, heated towel rail... and chandelier!
The second bedroom is equipped with the house library, a double bed, dresser, chair and wardrobes. Adjoining the second bedroom is a modern wet room with enormous shower, WC and heated towel rail.

The designer-fitted kitchen, with marble worktops and top of the range appliances, are in perfect keeping with the finish of the apartment.
