Architecturally designed by Michela Bertolini of mb-ds, this unique house has undergone an extensive rebuild and refurbishment programme resulting in an awe-inspiring contemporary home. Set back from the street behind an elegant Victorian facade, the property is principally arranged over five floors, each of which offers predominantly lateral space. To the rear is a sizeable courtyard garden which leads through to an attached mews with a garage and first-floor office. The entire property spans close to 4,500 sq ft, with the flexibility of offering six bedrooms.
On the ground floor and with a pleasant outlook overlooking the landscaped front garden is a bespoke Bulthaup kitchen with Miele appliances and designated breakfast area. The kitchen links perfectly to a spacious and wonderfully bright dining room which in turn provides access to the rear garden. This area is further complemented by a glass wall and ceiling, one of the many contemporary design features.
Leading up to the first floor via an exquisitely designed staircase is the more formal reception room with a designated study area to the rear. On the second floor are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom and on the top floor is the luxurious master bedroom with Corian en-suite bathroom. From this floor, the flat roof can be accessed. In addition to the gym area (with steam room) and all-important state-of-the-art home cinema, the lower-ground floor and basement offers flexible zones for entertaining, with a games room that’s perfect for kids.
The spacious fourth bedroom and en-suite bathroom can also be found on this floor. Sophisticated extras include a media system, Lutron lighting, Honeywell heating system and underfloor heating throughout, all of which can be controlled by Savant control app. St Petersburgh Place is superbly positioned and only a short walk from Kensington Gardens and Notting Hill Gate Underground station (Circle, District and Central lines) nearby.
