Sitting Pretty 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.
In the large and spacious open plan kitchen/dining/living room, the deluxe cream corner couch & sofa bed points towards a wall-mounted plasma TV. A 6 seater glass dining table sits beneath a designer mirror and chandelier. There's a variety of prints and photographs on the walls adding to this chic wooden floored room. The large windows provide great lighting for this lovely room.
The white and black kitchen has floor and wall cabinets and a chrome extractor. It's fully integrated with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, hob and oven. A skylight provides additional lighting for when you're cooking.
The master bedroom is bright with black organza curtains above the king-size bed. The large mirror, built-in wardrobe and dresser are all stylish and practical. The second bedroom is playfully decorated with a hand painted canvas, mirrored bedside table and a built-in wardrobe. The large double bed sits below a window and a host of spotlights, creating a light airy room.
The fully white tiled bathroom has a large pink feature wall, with a wall to wall mirror and a further sleek black carved mirror. There's a bath (and wall-mounted shower over the bath), WC and hand basin.
For some outdoor relaxation and fun, take yourself outside to the wood panelled terrace, complete with a table, chairs and BBQ. (Note this sits between the first and second floors and can be shared by other residents).
With the famous Portobello Road market and the very heart of Notting Hill just over a 5 minute walk away, you'll enjoy the lively neighbourhood with its cafes, restaurants, market and boutique shops as well as its many pubs and bars. This area holds much in the way of entertainment, whatever your interest, including the world famous Notting Hill Carnival at the end of August, which is a mark to the cultural vibrancy of this area. The green spaces of Holland Park and Kensington Gardens are also close by. For venturing into other parts of London, you're no more than a 5 minute walk to Westbourne Park with its handy connections (on both the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines).
