New Life for Stucco Villa
Set in one of Notting Hill’s premier roads this ornate Italian-style white stucco villa had the benefit of a double-width plot and a wonderful south facing garden. The owners who have lived in the property for over 30 years and use it as their London residence wished to extract the full potential of their home.
Rather than sell on with planning for development they contacted Amari to help partner with them in their ambition to obtain the maximum for the site in terms of planning gain with a view to then having Amari oversee the search for development financing and ultimately the build.
Originally 4,000 feet square Amari increased the floor area to over 8,000 feet square. With the property being in the middle of the Notting Hill conservation area additional care was taken to respect the existing fabric and surrounding area, whilst at the same time endeavouring to extract the full potential of the villa.
Additional accommodation was therefore not only gained below ground but also some 1,500 feet square of floor area was approved above ground leading to a balanced and outstanding family home.
As well as additions and alterations to the main house planning permission were granted for a fantastic contemporary garden pavilion. Its glass walls and green roof sitting snuggly at the bottom of the fantastic 100-foot garden.
The accommodation to the main house now boasts seven bedrooms all with en-suite as well as: games room, cinema, gym, spa, huge kitchen dining room, double reception room with library and a master suite that takes up the entire first floor.
Finished to the highest of standards that will include: Italian marble bathrooms, cantilevered Portland stone staircases, Boffi kitchens and wardrobes not to mention bespoke furniture and joinery this elegant development will sit beautifully in the picturesque surroundings of leafy Notting Hill.
