There’s no need to be shy, far less retiring, to love this hideaway. Bassett Road VIII is spirited and spacious, a home where losing yourself is part of the fun. Whether in the Wendy house or tepee, the little ones won’t be happier, and neither will you when you surrender to the Scandinavian ease of the sitting room. The palette is bright and fair, the bathrooms splendidly high spec and the garden framed by floor to ceiling windows. And, when you do finally spring from your haven, Notting Hill’s buzz is to be found just around the corner.
Your hosts are both from Italy. He works in the City, she is a luxury fashion accessory designer and they have a lively two year old girl.
This ground floor flat is surprisingly bright, and the surprises don’t stop there. Rare is the sitting room which has a tepee – this one’s just the right size for a children’s tea party. While they’re safely occupied, nestle into the sofa and eye up the décor. All clean lines, white walls and caramel wood flooring, there’s a Scandinavian elegance to each and every corner. Its huge windows reach out into the leafy garden glimmering outside. Here there’s a Wendy house and lots of toys!
The kitchen is open plan and high spec, whip up a storm, and when dinner’s ready sit at the chic dining table. Both bedrooms are havens of style and comfort. The double blends vintage furniture with a thoroughly modern finish, while the master is spaciously sleek, with a feature wall, dressing table and a king size bed robed in our crisp linen. There’s a sumptuous ensuite and shower room, both with our White Company goodies.
You may be tidily tucked away, but there’s much to tempt you forth. Portobello Road is mere moments from the door, famed for its antiques market, cool cafes and colourful townhouses. Embrace the buzzy boutiques and eateries of Notting Hill, shop in Westfield or seek out the amusements of town. The tube from Ladbroke Grove to Oxford Circus takes less than half an hour.
Additional amenities include: concierge, concierge service, 24 hour on call maintenance, hob (gas), entertainment, communications/internet, nespresso coffee machine, child's highchair.TripAdvisor property ID 2768874...Read more
