Warwick Square VI might cause more than a moment’s start. And not just for the view of stucco, porticos and plane trees as you step inside, but for the enviable roof terrace from where you’ll see all of London’s landmarks. And it doesn’t take a trained eye to pick out the Eastern flavour of the bedrooms, their pale palettes punctuated with dark-wood furniture and delicate prints. Or indeed the contemporary cosiness of the sitting room, where a plump, white sofa is festooned with cushions in burgundy.
Your host is a lawyer, dividing his time between here and Hong Kong. Indeed, whether at Warwick Square VI or not, he never lacks for a glorious skyline.
A picture of tradition on the outside, matters get more modern within. You’ve two low-slung sofas on which to eye the sitting room’s wooden floor, white walls and dabs of rich red, as well as the shapely coffee table. And there’s also a dining table with seating enough to satisfy six, alongside the dark, contemporary kitchen, perhaps a spectacle in its own right. The master bedroom is all polished woods and arched sash windows, but don’t get to dreaming before you’ve found the sophisticated ensuite bathroom with its twin sinks.
