Near to Notting Hill yet away from its bustle, Aubrey Walk is as wisely placed as it is sharply designed. In this renovated Georgian home, youâ€™ll find bright rooms arranged with designer furniture and plenty of modern art. With titles by Epicurus and Yeats neatly stacked above the studyâ€™s contemporary fireplace, you might lose hours amidst the deep red walls and brown upholstery. But be sure to dedicate some time to the sky-lit sitting room, where the doors slide open onto the garden.
Your learned host is a solicitor and a regular theatregoer. She keeps her wits sharp by running, cycling and frequenting the renowned restaurants nearby.
Free of chaos and clutter, the kitchenâ€™s high-tech appliances are skilfully tucked behind the crisp-lined cupboards. And the dining room is just as sleekly cut â€“ a lavish light hangs pendulously above the round table for six, overlooked by oversized prints. Climb the stairs to the thoughtfully curated master bedroom, where you might repose before the royal blue gas fireplace or in the dusky slate-tiled ensuite beyond. But not before retreating to the gardenâ€™s smart lounging spot to ponder your next move: will it be Holland Park or the boutiques of Kensington High Street?
