Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Westbourne Grove - Portobello Road 2
3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, artistic flat in a popular shopping West London location
Lost and found
This unusual home is surely the very essence of Portobello Road. There’s a fabulously playful atmosphere to its airy rooms, filled with treasures from the antiques stalls below. A hundred years ago this home was a space between two shops, and up on the landing, you’ll find original Victorian lettering – once visible to all, and now, yours and yours alone. You’re in one of the most fascinating spots in town – there’s the market, of course, with its vintage fashion and dusty gold, and, on Westbourne Grove itself, all sorts of boutiques and quirky cafes. With Notting Hill around the corner, this is one of the most-visited locations in the city – and now, you can call it home.
A young architect, your host transformed this flat from a wreck seven years ago. He’s a wholesome type, and when he’s not in London, he’ll be out in the countryside – sometimes visiting his family in Wales, and sometimes enjoying the sunshine in Tuscany.
Your host has carefully preserved this building’s history, and you’ll love the old floorboards, the high ceilings and the wooden shutters. But such respect is tinged with a healthy dose of irreverence - witness the mirror ball, the oversized candelabra, and, in place of a fire, a large flat screen TV. Next door to the airy and fresh living space is the chrome kitchen, with a grand mirror, antique dresser and industrial breakfast bar. All three bedrooms are doubles, and all are furnished simply, with fresh white walls, and, of course, acres of our crisp luxury bed linen.
Rise early to bag the best pieces from the market – then, as the tourists begin to flood the streets, retire for a well-earned breakfast in one of your many local cafes. This is prime territory for people-watching, and you’re likely to see the odd celebrity rummaging for some pre-loved fashion, or curled up in one of Westbourne Grove’s gastropubs awaiting the arrival of a Sunday roast. And if you want to get into town, the tube from Ladbroke Grove to Piccadilly Circus takes around half an hour.
