Designer: Eva Gundersen
With wonderful interiors and a 45ft west-facing private garden, this two-bedroom duplex forms part of an immaculate stucco-fronted house just off Westbourne Grove.
The apartment has been extended and refurbished with great attention to detail by the designer Eva Gundersen, who has worked extensively for Italian brand Missoni. It has been rewired and replumbed, with under-floor heating throughout.
The apartment measures approximately 1,100 sq ft internally, and is accessed via its own front door at garden level. There is a modernised kitchen at the front, with a sash window and a sliding serving hatch. This leads in turn to a reception room, with a dining area and study in the aluminium-clad extension. Glazed folding doors open on to the charming garden, which is largely paved and has access to Bridstow Place via the garden gate.
A new timber staircase leads to the first floor, which has very high ceilings. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room, and a dressing room in the extension. There is a second bedroom at the front, with a large window and a period fireplace, and a second bathroom.
There is only one other flat in the building, which is owned by the freeholder. Hereford Road is a very attractive early Victorian terrace on the borders of Notting Hill and Bayswater, in the borough of Westminster. It is well located for public transport, with the Circle and District Lines available from Royal Oak and Bayswater, and the Circle Line from Queensway. Paddington Station provides links to Heathrow Airport via the Heathrow Express. Hyde Park is a short walk away to the south, and Westbourne Grove is home to a number of outstanding restaurants, bars and shops.
