Designer: Jack Hemingway
This beautifully detailed one-bedroom garden flat is positioned on a quiet residential street in Kensal Rise. Having been completely remodelled by designer Jack Hemingway, the revived configuration has opened up the living space, and places the bedroom at the front, with a central open living room that connects to the kitchen at the back. A door from the kitchen gives access to the rear garden.
There is wonderful and individual design detail throughout the space, from the Mondrian fronts of the bespoke wardrobes, to the specially sourced 1950s range cooker. The reclaimed parquet floor in the kitchen has been installed in a herringbone fashion, and the copper pipework in the kitchen and bathroom was created especially for purpose. An elegant cast-iron bath has been re-enamelled and combined with a shower.
There is potential for an extension into the garden’s side return, an area which currently has space for a large outside table. The main section of the garden gets most of the day’s sun.
The flat is excellently located between Kensal Rise, Queens Park and Ladbroke Grove. Nearby Chamberlayne Road has a fine selection of independent restaurants, delis, pubs and shops, including a butcher, greengrocer, florist and specialist bakery. A local favourite is Ida, a family run Italian restaurant. The green spaces of Queens Park and the Regent’s Canal towpath are easily reached on foot, as are Golbourne and Portobello Road.
The nearest underground station is Queens Park, for access to the Bakerloo Line, whilst London Overground services run from Kensal Rise station for connections to Richmond in one direction and Highbury & Islington in the other. There are plenty of local buses that run into central London via Notting Hill and Kensington High Street.
