Seasonal, regional and refreshingly simple, that’s Italian cuisine. And it’s a recipe this home follows to the letter. A Regent’s Park hideaway with a sophisticated dash, Weymouth Street II’s sash windows are tall and stately and there’s a palate-cleansing clarity to the beiges, chestnuts and greens. And the kitchen, you ask? As well-furnished as its plates will be come suppertime. So crack open a choice Chianti on the balcony, or step outside and find all of London on your doorstep.
A chef with a taste for Italy, Weymouth Street II is your hostess’ pied-a-terre when she leaves Lincolnshire for London. When she’s not wielding her gastronomic magic, or perfecting the Italian tongue, she’s sinking her teeth into this brilliantly buzzy location.
Step across the pale wooden floor and let the sitting room’s slouchy, cream sofa and fluffy, green rug infuse your senses. Those with an appetite for the antique will appreciate the characterful filing cabinet above the sofa, while the creamy, modern kitchen will quicken the epicurean pulse with its contemporary glass and wood dining table set for four.
Dinner suitably polished off, why not take an evening stroll around nearby Regent’s Park, or turn to the tasteful master for an indulgent sleep.
