Case Study

Kensington

SCROLL TO EXPLORE

We originally sourced this flat, sight unseen by a regular overseas client, who was looking for a pied a terre in London. In just three weeks the flat was sourced, and within a further two it had exchanged.

It is unusual to find a beautiful white stucco Kensington houses divided into only two flats. It is far more common to find them as a house or divided into four flats. Having the great width and 2 whole flours to play with we were really able to get creative.

We changed things around to give the reception room a dual aspect by moving the kitchen opening and installing glazed, sliding doors that separate one from the other. There was no need to change the Master bedroom and second bedroom structurally, but we gave them a major cosmetic overhaul with new flooring, light fittings, window dressings and decoration.

By stealing some space from the large, principal en suite bathroom we created an en suite shower in the second bedroom which looks like a cupboard. This liberated space for a small study and access to the roof terrace without having to walk through a shower room (as was previously the case).

From the roof terrace you could enjoy spectacular views of Kensington Palace.
