Houses

Feel like Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant living in Notting Hill

This house in Linden Gardens, in the popular London Notting Hill I liked it a lot, not only for the use of space, but for the thorough restoration and the simple and very decorative solutions that we propose.

It's about the typical townhouse in the area, of all known for the film of the same name that has spectacular close-ups of the neighborhood and the interior of the houses, apart from being the romantic comedy par excellence, of course.

We are starting from the basis that it is not a neighborhood like Belgravia with large mansions, but it was the neighborhood where immigrants arrived in London to work. A multicultural neighborhood best known for his Notting Hill Carnival that for another thing, they even began to rehabilitate the houses and the famous film was filmed.

Already then Notting hill, especially in its closest part to Hyde park, began to emerge as a fashionable neighborhood of the capital of the Thames. The interiors in this area are usually motley and with many recesses, hence the restoration I love it.

The first thing they have done is take advantage of high ceilings creating a perfect loft as a library or just for relaxing. In addition to safeguard Georgian moldings from the ceiling of the living room, getting the effect of an 18th century lounge in miniature.

All the restoration has been carried out with care and has not been repaired in expenses. The floor of teak parquet Burmese is rescued from the old Victoria and Albert Museum, the guest bed (which belonged by the Queen's doctor) is French, of Walnut, and dates from 1776, and the mezzanine railings are hand carved by one of the most important artisans in the United Kingdom.

Everywhere we see details, such as cast iron fireplace of the room, recovered after delving into the wall, covered by papers, paint and a hundred years of history. Another detail are the tiles of the kitchen that are hand painted. A kitchen that takes advantage of the hollow under the loft and has a perfect bar to prepare cocktails for the guests.

There are more hand-painted tiles in the bathroom (Which has no carpet!) But is completely modernized. The apartment has a luxurious and classic master bedroom suite and another double of guests, designed to be cozy, with a built-in mirror and genuinely british antiques.

Close to the most famous street market in the world, in Portobello Road, and a step away from Kensington Gardens, is owned by a couple of journalists who travel much of the year, renting their fabulous London residence. So, if you want, you can already feel like Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts living in Notting Hill.
