An impressive home-from-home between fashionable Notting Hill and Bayswater, this place really makes a statement. A period London townhouse set over five floors, it's been modernised with more than a touch of dramatic flair. Cleverly extended to the rear and in the basement, it's spacious, stylish and full of exciting modern art. There's a formal living room on the ground floor, perfect for entertaining, that flows through into the enormous kitchen and dining room. Here you'll be struck by the contemporary designer kitchen and the huge glass table for eating together in style, as well as by the view directly out onto the smartly landscaped garden. In the summer, the wall of bi-folding doors opens the space up completely. The basement hides fun touches like a children's playroom and table tennis, along with one of the bedrooms and a small office. Best of all, it's down here that you'll find the family room, with its comfy velvet sofas and its cinema projector. More bedrooms, each unique and meticulously designed, are on the higher floors, along with beautiful bathrooms, and one suite on the top floor even has its own kitchenette – ideal if some of your party prefer a little more independence. Here you're just a three-minute walk from Royal Oak underground station and there's even that rarest of London treats – off-road parking – included.
Home truths: *Unusually for London, this home comes with off-street parking – but you won't need a car to get around with Royal Oak underground station just minutes away
*The home is set across five floors so there are plenty of stairs involved
*The extended basement level features a double bedroom, family room with projector, children's playroom, kitchenette, fitness room with table tennis and an office
