Glass House Notting Hill
This little jewel is tucked away in a private mews in one of Notting Hill's premier locations. Originally, garage planning permission was sought and obtained for a new build 1,200 feet square 'glass house' set amongst the gardens and listed buildings of the area. This tranquil location is an oasis of calm within the city making the perfect pied-a-terre.
With many planning and conservation areas constraints, the house was designed as a contemporary addition to the streetscape setting off the surrounding buildings whilst having an identity of its own. The 'glass house' consists of two bedrooms with en suite, guest cloakroom and open plan kitchen/dining/living room. The bedrooms are on the lower ground floor allowing for the top open plan room to have sweeping views over the trees and greenery of the leafy private mews via a 4.5m high glass screen.
Upstairs, the property is fitted with Silent Gliss motorised blinds operated on a Lutron home automation system. The ribbon fireplace and rich Arden Hodges walnut floor add warmth to the room which is offset against the Bulthaup gloss lacquer kitchen with Gaggenau appliances and Philippe Starck lighting. On the lower level, the walnut flooring winds down a bespoke stair leading to the bedrooms, bathrooms and plant room. The bathrooms are fitted out with Italian sanitary ware, Vola hardware, bespoke teak interior cabinets and Boffi lighting.
The bedrooms carry on this theme and have full height Boffi wardrobes, Silent Gliss automated blinds and large floor to ceiling sliding glass panels looking onto an external terrace. Punching well above its weight this property delivers on: location, character and style, everything a house of this sort should in trendy Notting Hill.
