If you like a house with character, may we introduce Ceylon Road? Lost in a jumble of leafy backstreets, this is a home that lives and breathes before your eyes. The garden is a sprawl of scented green, the playroom packed to bursting with toys and, whether you’re a grown-up or a cherry-cheeked youth, all will adore the eclectic sitting room. Here there’s everything from a stag’s head to a hidden TV, and furniture that runs from the chic to the shabby. Outside, needless to say, life goes on. With Holland Park, Kensington and Westfield to choose from, how could it not?
Prime of life
Your hosts are a French couple with three children. They both work in the City but love being close to the thriving French community in West Kensington.
A bit of a character
This is a home of the family, by the family, for the family. There’s certainly a lot for the little ones to do, not least in the spacious and skylit playroom. In the meantime, you can take a coffee out to the verdant garden or kick back in style in the sitting room. Here there’s a fireplace, a squishy sofa and all sort of eclectic pieces, from a charming sideboard to statement candlesticks and groovy red lights.
There’s room for everyone at the dining table, the kitchen is bright, white and generously proportioned. More toys await in the single and bunk bedrooms, both impeccably elegant, but the master bedroom steals the show with its lovely balcony and deck chair. You’ve a gleamingly styled ensuite, as well as a large bathroom in which to have a long wallow with the help of our White Company toiletries.
Living it up
Take an afternoon to appreciate the beauty of Holland Park, one of London’s finest, or refresh your wardrobe in the boutiques of High Street Kensington. There are the restaurants of Hammersmith, the snazzy shops of Westfield and, further afield, the beckoning lights of Notting Hill. But if there’s one place that teems with life, it’s the West End. The tube from Kensington Olympia to Oxford Circus takes around twenty five minutes.
