Quiet, pretty and utterly charming, Kensington Church Street is one of the capital’s most sophisticated homes. Built in the 1760s, this home has plenty of traditional touches, like corniced ceilings and an original fireplace and floorboards. Flower-sprigged linen, blue and white china and daffodil yellow walls give this apartment a pleasant, rustic air, and that villagey atmosphere continues in the street below, where the shouts of school children mingle with church bells and the rustle of mature trees. Kensington High Street has a wonderful range of shops, cafés and restaurants, or, for designer glitz, walk to Knightsbridge and Harrods. You’re steps away from Notting Hill, too, and within easy striking distance of the West End. It’s small wonder William and Kate chose this part of town for their marital home, and now you can live right next door.
Your delightful hostess spends much of the year in Switzerland, returning to the UK in the autumn to catch up with the London theatre scene and her beloved friends.
Crème de la crème
At Kensington Church Street, blue is the colour; you’ll see it in the navy floorboards, the cobalt hued sofa and in your hostess’ collection of fine china. The sitting room is delicate and inviting, with high ceilings and pale artwork, and there’s a definite rustic feel to the kitchen diner, where you’ve a polished table, gingham clad chairs and all sorts of useful appliances beneath worktops of solid oak.
There are two bedrooms, a petite single, and the master suite. Papered by William Morris in twirling lemons, peaches and pomegranates, there’s an arts and crafts theme to this room, which continues through into the crewelwork cushions, and the elegant dark wood furniture.
There can be few better spots from which to explore the capital – you’re close to Notting Hill and Portobello Road Market, to the super-luxe stores of Knightsbridge, to the museums and to Kensington Gardens. Kensington High Street has a range of great British brands from Top Shop to Marks and Spencer, not to mention a huge array of cafes and restaurants, while the tube from High Street Kensington to Oxford Circus takes less than twenty minutes.
