Steeped in understated glamour, this sophisticated penthouse looks out over leafy views of regal Kensington Gardens. Open the windows wide and you might just hear the hum of the orchestra from the Royal Albert Hall, just around the corner — Or most likely, the squawks of bright green parakeets in the trees below. It’s a debonair duplex with a carefully considered interior, mixing modern luxury living with elegant 1920s touches. The streamlined kitchen is beyond well-equipped for those days you need to make light work of simple suppers and there’s even a private elevator entrance for a flourish of extravagance. It’s a super spot to come home to after exploring one of London’s most exclusive postcodes — Hyde Park, Exhibition Road and High Street Kensington are all within easy reach. But what really makes this home sing is the service — breakfast in bed just for the hell of it, an in-house chef or sought-after dinner reservations for special occasions (and a nanny to take care of the kids). Alternatively, you can schedule a private training session in the on-site gym. Your host really has thought of it all.
