For this townhouse for sale in upscale Notting Hill, the beauty is in the luxurious details. “I can say it’s the best quality I’ve ever seen in a finished product and house in London,” listing agent Oliver Lurot said.
Built between 1870 and 1880, the house completed a five-year transformation this year from apartments to a single-family townhouse. Developers and brothers Danny and Eli Pine worked with architect William Smalley to build an additional basement level, and it may very well be the best aspect of the house.
The new basement level is home to a meticulously designed screening room with a view of a subterranean plant room. The walls are lined with grasscloth wallpaper and a 4K projector offers high-tech home theater technology. On the same level, there is a gym and a Basalt-lined spa with a steam shower and a plunge pool.
Moving up to the original basement level—the lower ground floor—there are two bedrooms (one with an en-suite bathroom), an additional full bathroom, a utility room and a vault. The next floor—the raised ground floor—has a kitchen and Art Deco-inspired dining room with a gas fireplace and a terrace. On the first floor, there’s a drawing room with a gas fireplace and a balcony, a conservatory with heated marble floors and a half bathroom.
The master suite spans the second floor, with two walk-in closets and a large bathroom. On the third floor, there are two bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms.
The house has five bedrooms and six full bathrooms and one half bathroom across 4,842 square feet and six levels.
Amenities include Crestron home automation, Lutron lighting and underfloor heating (and climate control) throughout. The patio garden and terrace have automated irrigation systems while the conservatory has sliding doors from Switzerland.
“When a lot of developers do up a house, it’s quite the same, in terms of style, finishes and appliances,” Mr. Lurot said. “These two brothers have done something different with the style, delivery and quality.”
For instance, Mr. Lurot said the dark rosewood library has a “gentlemen’s club feel to it,” and includes mood lighting, heavy velvet curtains, marble panels on the walls and a built-in bar.
Leather and suede panels line the master bedroom. A television tucks under one of the panels when not in use. The master bathroom is accessed through two walk-in closets and is almost entirely made from Salvatori stone, including the tub, dual sinks and the shower with amber glass. The hardware is from the Italian brand Agape and the Scandinavian brand Vola.
The house is on Ladbroke Road in central Notting Hill, close to Notting Hill Gate, Westbourne Grove and Portobello Road. It’s also close to Holland Park and Kensington Gardens. Two underground stations—Notting Hill Gate and Holland Park—are nearby.
