Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Westbourne Grove - Aldridge Road Villas
2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, brightly elegant apartment in West London
Ying and yang
‘Everything has beauty,’ counsels Confucius, ‘but not everyone sees it.’ Which is just one more fine reason to look closely at this home. Adorned with Chinese art and antiques, Aldridge Road Villas positively whispers wisdom. Sunlight chases across pure white walls and a smattering of eastern trinkets, while, after dark, Chinese lanterns dip and glow. When you’re gazing at the treetops from the bedroom or just nursing a ginseng tea in the sitting room, you’ll feel the chi flowing happily. And why shouldn’t it? Buzzy Notting Hill beckons outside and Chinatown itself is just a tube ride away...
Your hostess spent the last six years living in Shanghai, and various Chinese cities before that. Now back in London, and with her favourite antiques and pieces back with her, she works as a freelance film producer.
Stroll along the English elegance of this tree-shaded avenue to the Chinese calm awaiting inside. The bright, elegant sitting room could make any Sinophile smile, with its eye-catching artwork and lanterns together with period chairs, trunks and cupboards shipped straight from China itself. Choose a book, scatter the colourful cushions and settle into the sofa for a spell. You’ve an elegant desk, as well as a dining table for four basking in the light from a bay window. The kitchen is small yet well-stocked, while the bathroom is decked out with our White Company treats and fluffy towels.
You’ll find the master bedroom touched with more Chinese artwork and antiques, as well as daylight which warms its white surfaces and crisp linen. Like the master, the double has a leafy treetop view through its sash window, as well as more books and lovely period furnishings.
In this cosmopolitan corner, you’re near Little Venice, as well as the Moroccan eateries and shops of Golborne Road. Do look in on Westbourne Grove, lined with the classiest of independent boutiques, before strolling in Kensington Gardens or rummaging for treasure along Portobello Road. Whether it’s Chinatown or the rest of the West End’s enticements, you can be there in just half an hour from Westbourne Park tube.
