Architect: Munkenbeck & Partners
This impeccable four-bedroom house with swimming pool is newly completed to a design by the renowned architects Munkenbeck & Partners. It is situated in the middle of a terrace of three, with huge windows that draw in the natural light and provide far-reaching views.
Internal accommodation measures close to 3,500 sq ft. The centrepiece of the house is a wonderful open-plan reception room, kitchen and dining room that spans the whole of the first floor, with access to a terrace. It has an exposed concrete ceiling and a shuttered-concrete wall at one end.
The master bedroom is on the second floor, with exposed ceiling joists and a big picture window. It has an en-suite bathroom and dressing room. There are three further bedrooms and two bathrooms on the ground floor. The lower ground floor contains a gym and swimming pool, with very high ceilings.
The property has covered off-street parking for two cars at the front. Externally, it takes its cues from European Modernism, with expanses of crisp white-painted render and timber detailing. Internally, the exposed concrete is combined with white walls, shadow gaps, and wide Douglas fir floorboards from Dinesen. The house has triple glazing in some of the bedrooms, and a ground-source heat pump.
Waldo Road is a no-through road, part of the College Park, a small group of streets located between Harrow Road and Scrubs Lane. It is located across the railway line from Kensal Green Cemetery, within a short walk of Kensal Green and Willesden Junction stations. The area is experiencing large levels of investment, including the new Crossrail train network and the potential development of Old Oak Common to create the HS2 interchange. The outstanding amenities of Notting Hill and Queens Park are within easy reach, as is Westfield shopping centre. There is quick road access to the west via the A40/M40.
