Perks for the Parents

A chic, scandi-inspired townhouse tucked away down a leafy lane on the border of both Notting Hill and Kensington, with one of London’s best playgrounds on its doorstep. It sleeps 4 + 1. This light-filled, contemporary home is set away from the bustling main streets but is just minutes’ walk to the chic restaurants, cafes and boutiques of trendy Notting Hill. There’s plenty of space for parents and kids to relax and play with open-plan style living areas, and a large, private garden including a lawn, sun deck and alfresco dining terrace. The primary bedroom has a superkingsize bed as well as its own dressing area, workspace and ensuite bathroom providing that extra bit of privacy when needed. The residence’s central location is hard to beat with many of London’s treasures a short walk away including the Diana memorial kids’ playground at Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park and the legendary Portobello Road.

Why Kids Love it

A wonderful city base for kids of all ages, with a garden to play in, a TV lounge for chilled out downtime and some of London’s best family attractions on the doorstep. It’s under a 5-minute walk to Kensington palace and gardens where younger ones will find hours of fun at the Diana Memorial playground with its pirate ship, sandpits and water play. Hyde Park is just beyond with acres of green space, the Serpentine gallery, and a swimming/boating lake. Keep a look out for seasonal events such as the festive winter wonderland with its fair ground and ice rink and an eclectic summer music festival programme. Older kids and teens will also love the buzzing street markets in Portobello and Notting hill, while kids of all ages will find something of interest at the world-famous Natural History, Science and V&A museums of Kensington - a 10-minute car, bus or tube ride away.

Style Notes

Retro chic. A light, design-led residence that couples Scandinavian influence with vintage style to create a smart and comfortable city haven. A contemporary glass extension draws in plenty of natural light, while beautiful parquet flooring and a cozy earthy palette set a serene and relaxing tone. Vintage posters compliment mid-century modern furniture, with 4 Eames chairs in the kitchen and iconic red seating in the living room. We love the newly built kitchen with its sleek blue units, metro tiles and classic scandi style. The glass ceiling and doors flood in light alongside views of the pretty garden, creating a real oasis in the center of London.

Notting Hill, London

Movie stars, museums and the market

This pretty, arty and desirable area of West London has characterful streets of Georgian and Victorian houses, the vibrant Portobello Market on a Saturday and easy access to the rest the city. Close to Kensington Garden and Palace, it has Gloucester Road’s blockbuster museums on the doorstep, including the V&A, Natural History Museum and Science Museum. And - tell the kids - it’s also the area that Paddington Bear calls home.
