This splendid large "Victorian" family house, originally built in 1846 and now owned by a successful writer and her husband, has been recently refurbished with 21st century technology: under-floor heating, smart modern bathrooms, low voltage dimmable halogen lighting and wifi broadband internet.

Your nearest tube, 2 minutes walk, is Royal Oak (Circle, Hammersmith and City Lines); Bayswater (Circle and District Lines) and Queensway (Central Line) are within 10 minutes.

The house comfortably sleeps 8 adults in 3 double bedrooms and 2 singles, with 3 bathrooms. A further 2 children / young adults can be accommodated on futons in 2 of the double rooms. There is off street parking for one car at the front of the house.

The accommodation, presented in "comfortable English" style, is on 3 floors.


On the ground floor the hall opens onto a comfortable drawing room which is the family music room. There is a sofa and two arm chairs, a working coal-effect gas fire and a good piano. This is linked by double doors to the kitchen/dining area. There's also a downstairs loo/cloakroom on this floor.

The kitchen/dining area (20ft x 17ft6, 6.1m x 5.30m) has a smart modern kitchen (twin electric ovens, gas hob, granite work top, microwave, dishwasher, etc. etc. and an ice making machine.

The dining area has an antique dining table + 8 chairs. This gives out onto a paved patio with garden furniture and a good-sized attractive garden - a real plus if you have children.

Dining Area

On the first floor is the drawing room and the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom.

The drawing room (19ft9 x 15ft9, 6m x 4.8m) is designed as a comfortable family room with a 3 seater sofa and an arm chair. As might be expected in the house of a writer one entire wall is given over to bookshelves and books.

To complete the room there's a TV (digital channels, VCR and DVD), stereo and working coal-effect gas fire (very cosy in winter).

Drawing Room

The attractive master bedroom (15ft6 x 13ft, 4.7m x 4m) has a 4ft6 bed. The large French windows open onto a balcony which overlooks the garden.

The high quality marble en-suite bathroom has bath with power shower, twin "his and hers" basins and a loo.

On the top floor there are a further 4 bedrooms: 3 doubles, one of which overlooks the garden and a single (large 4ft wide bed) also overlooking the garden. Futon beds suitable for children / young adults are available for two of the top floor doubles.

There are another two marble bathrooms, one with shower, basin and loo, the other with bath (with hand shower), basin and loo. The laundry facilities (washer and separate dryer) are on this floor.

The house is very close to Westbourne Road and Queensway, in a great position to experience one of the most cosmopolitan parts of London, famed for its huge variety of restaurants of every sort and culture serving cuisine from literally all over the world.

You are also just 10 minutes walk from Notting Hill and Portobello Road with its famous Saturday market.

This is a No Smoking property.
