Notting Hill’s spectacular popularity speaks for itself. It welcomes an eclectic group of visitors, including everyone from musicians and emerging artists to smart city-folk and contented families. Potter down Portobello Market and look at the glorious range of bric-a-bric and antiques or pop into one of the are's many bookshops. Then you’ve got time for a quick coffee before you nip back to Pembridge Mews II for a tour of your new home.

The Big Apple
When you reach your new front door, you’ll feel as though your presence makes perfect, inevitable sense. Tucked away, the home is everything you need from a retreat in the midst of the big city.
Open the front door into a large living area. And by that, we mean you could happily live in this space alone during your visit. Comfortable, but with little touches of ‘cool’ (like lovely exposed brickwork), all your requirements will be met by this space.
Continue weaving through your new home to unearth a single bedroom and a dinky downstairs cloakroom. At the top of the stairs is your very own secret garden – well, more of a terrace really – but a lovely spot to take your morning coffee and look out over your new stomping ground.
Back inside, you’ll find a very tasteful baby’s room (especially handy if you’ve brought your family with you) and the master bedroom. After a long day strolling the streets, this room will feel like an old friend. Jump in the bath, grab a book and enjoy a good night’s rest. There’s so much more for you to explore tomorrow.
The other side of the pond

You’re just as likely to see a celebrity as you are to strike up an instant rapport with the local market keepers. The West End is less than ten minutes by tube or, better still, hop on a Boris Bike and you’ll be in Hyde Park in no time at all.
