If Pembridge Mews were simply a neat, smart, one bed in one of London’s prettiest mews, then already, we’d be getting a little excited. Close to the action of Notting Hill, cute as the proverbial button and with a jewel-like sweetness that’ll leave you beaming, this little home is quite the charmer.
And then, we come to the interiors, and suddenly the joy dial’s turned up to max. This is the home of a couple whose verve and humour shines from every surface. So come in, and have your biggest grin at the ready - you don’t get kooky without a great big oo.
Your hosts are an arty pair. She’s an interior designer, while he’s in video production. As you’ll see from the serenity of Pembridge Mews’ location, they like their peace and quiet – but don’t be fooled by all that birdsong. The surf board under the stairs says it all: this is a couple who are more than partial to the occasional shot of adrenalin.
Groove is in the heart
Yup, Pembridge Mews really is the whole package. Downstairs, you’ll find an open plan living space that’s light, bright, and jam-packed with original features, from a working fireplace to exposed brickwork. The woodwork’s warm, the art, inspirational, and the sofa has curves to die for.
Upstairs you’ll find an ice-white bathroom, a separate dressing room and a bright double bedroom. Open the doors out onto your own private terrace, and take your tea amidst the tree tops. Or, lift aside the curtains to reveal a study, with a writing desk so marvelous that to buy it, your host was prepared to wait ten whole years.
And the beat goes on
From the candy coloured houses that smile down upon the eclectic paraphernalia of Portobello Road antiques market to the lazy glitter of The Serpentine in nearby Hyde Park, Notting Hill is the playspace of London’s affluent big kids. The streets around Pembridge Mews boast enough cafes, shops and restaurants to satisfy the most demanding of tastes, but, if you need further stimulation, you can be in town in fifteen minutes.
