Just south of the buzz of Kensington High Street, within walking distance of the grand museums and of beautiful Hyde Park, is Earls Court. Here’s the London of a picture book, think tall white stucco-fronted town houses, metal railings and the misty glow of streetlamps through damp leaves.
And here is Longridge Road, a simple, smart home with a wealth of original features and a distinctly modern aesthetic. So sip your drink, lean back in your seat and relax, this is going to be a very smooth ride…
Head in the clouds
Your hostess is a flight stewardess, currently taking a break from the skies to raise her gorgeous little boy. She’s from Barcelona, and you’ll see her Spanish influence in the spicy colours of the master bedroom. Her Northern Irish husband is also living the high life, he works for an airline too, looking after their cargo.
Flight of fancy
Every inch has been made to count in this bright home, the open-plan living space is all clean lines and deep, rich colours, the brown leather sofa glows against the white wall, while the modern kitchen is shiny in the deepest black. The dining table seats six, or, have a romantic dinner à deux on the balcony.
The bathroom’s a harmonic blend of sandy tiles and polished wood, the ideal spot to dip into our delicious White Company toiletries. Next door you’ll find a bunk bedded room painted in little boy blue, with heaps of books and toys. The master bedroom is dominated by enormous original windows, with views out into the treetops. Lie back on our luxury bed linen and drift off for a first class night’s sleep.
