About our home

The house was built at the end of the nineteenth century as part of one of the original enlightened garden city planning projects of the era. The area is very light and relaxed, with a very welcome sense of space and sky. It is a typical cosy Victorian terraced cottage, and was completely gutted and renovated in 2008, with extensive works, including a conservatory extension from the kitchen opening to the garden, new parquet flooring, opening up the sitting room and a loft conversion (making a third bedroom with its own stairs, albeit no door). The airy bathroom has a spacious shower and big bath, and as food is very important to me, the kitchen is very well furnished, including a six-hob range cooker, and works well as a space to have people for dinner or just sit with a coffee and the paper looking out at the garden. All three bedrooms have double beds. All in all, a nice place to spend time, as well as being a convenient launching point for forays into central london.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Just over the canal from Notting Hill, for me Queen's Park is ideal - all the glamour and glitz (and accompanying prices) are in easy reach, but the area is a bit more laid back, leafier and friendly.

Buzzy restaurants
All the restaurants of Notting Hill in reach - particularly recommend Le Cafe Anglais and Hereford Rd (former sous-chef at St. John's). Also, a short walk away, Ida for Italian, Meson Bilbao for Spanish and Mosob for really great Eritrean food and some of the loveliest people around.
Cool bars
Th Paradise, The Regent, Cobden Club, The Salusbury
Cozy cafés
Kandana
Retail therapy
This is London - take your pick!

Walks in the park
Queen's Park ten minutes walk, or stroll through Notting Hill on the way to Hyde Park or Holland Park (also buses for the less hardy). Ten minutes on the silverlink from Kensal Rise to escape to beautiful Hampstead Heath.
Spot of exercise
Runs through the parks - there's a sports centre with pool about a five minute walk away, and the Porchester centre (near Queensway) offers an authentic all day spa treatment if that's your thing. And, if you're feeling outgoing, I often head to regent's park in the summer evenings and ask to join one of the football games being played there.
