An elegant and welcoming townhouse on a quiet and pretty crescent in prime Notting Hill.

Well and truly reconstructed five years ago,this is a dignified, stucco fronted town house which combines practical living space and sophisticated modern systems with its existing provenance and a newly acquired touch of contemporary style and design.

The house's accommodation is spread over just four, eminently useable floors and extends out from the lower ground floor onto a garden designed by Stuart Craine.

Conceived with a brief to combine minimal maintenance with outdoor family living, the garden caters for the enjoyment of every age. Three large, level terraces are linked by wide shallow steps and in turn provide a seamless outdoor extension to the lower ground floor, a grown up alfresco dining 'room' and a playground to exceed every child's wildest dreams. Sustainable timbers have been used for decking and trellising, York Stone for paving and steps, and plants chosen specifically to appeal to and attract all varieties of wildlife.

Inside, the integrity of the 19th Century building remains; wide sash windows, marble fire surrounds, cornicing and magnificent deep skirting augment perfectly the more recent additions to the fabric of the house. Individually handcrafted wooden floorboards, stunningly simple, bespoke joinery in fine hardwoods and a luxury kitchen designed and built by Mowlem & Co. to mention but a few.

Aesthetics aside, the same unfaltering level of attention has been applied to the structure and the technical spec. The roof, the wiring and the plumbing are all new. A damp proof course on the lower ground floor and inordinate amounts of insulation have been installed.

There is Cat 5 cabling throughout, a whole house lighting system (Clipsal), a state of the art audio visual system (Beyond the Invisible) allows access to your music library, Sky, radio, DVDs... in most rooms. A sophisticated security system is in place so that if you can bear to leave, the house can be locked up and left with ultimate peace of mind.

Last but by no means least, is the location. The very best of Notting Hill is on the doorstep. There is shopping, entertainment, recreation and schooling, the vast acreage of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens too. Not forgetting accessibility to central London and the City via the Central Line at Notting Hill Gate (Circle and District Lines as well) which is only a very short walk away.

The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea.
