Combining the artisan history of its architectural design and period features, with the finest contemporary interior specification, 22 Kensington Gardens Square has been affectionately restored to create an unsurpassed level of sophisticated living. Beautiful stucco fronted London properties are revered the world over, with London’s garden squares having a timeless appeal.
Relatively few properties of this type undergo such a comprehensive and fastidious programme of refurbishment, offering a piece of true exclusivity, in a tranquil yet highly convenient location, within easy reach of Notting Hill, Hyde Park and the West End. Each of the properties at 22 Kensington Gardens Square is available as a Share of Freehold.
Originally built as a private residence in 1858 by Henry de Bruno Austin, the Grade II listed 22 Kensington Gardens Square is built over six floors and enjoys a prime position near the centre of the western side of the private residents’ square, overlooking mature trees, a manicured lawn and delicate planting that comes to life in spring.
Expertly renovated with the consultation of a heritage specialist, a number of old partitioning walls have been removed to restore the original grand proportions while striking arched windows, staircase balustrades, intricate cornicing, ceiling roses and original fireplaces have been meticulously restored or replicated where necessary to the highest level of craftsmanship.
The interiors of the properties carefully combine the best in period features with a contemporary specification. Bespoke, open-plan kitchens by Roundhouse with Miele appliances, luxurious bathrooms with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware, programmable mood lighting and integrated speakers bring a touch of modern day opulence. Herringbone parquet flooring, bespoke wardrobe and joinery units, wrought iron standalone radiators and intricate parquet tiling in the bathrooms bring a sense of Georgian grandeur.
Residents of 22 Kensington Gardens Square will have the opportunity to become privileged key holders for the leafy garden square, while also being just a short walk from the expansive spaces of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. The development is perfectly placed to enjoy all that Bayswater and Notting Hill have to offer, whether fine dining, shopping or entertainment.
With a plethora of exquisite restaurants and boutiques on your doorstep, including fashionable Westbourne Grove, you would be forgiven for never wandering far from 22 Kensington Gardens Square, but with three underground stations less than half a mile from your front door, and The West End just a few minutes by car, all of London is readily accessible.
The art of food and drink is very close to the heart of Notting Hill and Bayswater; the Ledbury’s two Michelin stars, Hereford Road’s robust yet simple British cuisine; Granger & Co’s queue-formingly popular brunches and 202’s prime people-watching alfresco dining, provide a truly eclectic array of gastronomic delights to enjoy. London’s gastronomic credentials need little introduction, but it is also the world’s cocktail capital, with nine bars featured in the 2015 World’s 50 Best Bars awards. Just off Regent Street, the best of the best, Artesian, couldn’t be easier to reach. In fact, 22 Kensington Gardens Square’s prime location allows you to enjoy a wealth of revered venues at your leisure, before retiring to more local and relaxed surroundings.
With the bohemian ambience that flows through the area, part-fuelled by the wealth of greenery that Hyde Park and Kensington Palace Gardens offer, it’s no surprise the Arts are well catered for. The Tabernacle and The Gate are two of London’s most intimate performance spaces, while the Electric Cinema, part of the Electric House members’ club, gives the silver screen a platinum makeover. Contemporary or classical. Modern or medieval. London’s cultural offering has something for all tastes. Iconic venues such as The Royal Albert Hall and Royal Opera House play host to eclectic programmes that take in all of the above. The galleries and theatres are equally diverse, combining award-winning exhibitions and productions, with cutting edge shows that challenge both preconceptions and the future of modern arts.

The planned revitalisation of the iconic, Grade II listed Whiteleys Shopping Centre will cement the area’s appeal as a lifestyle hub in west London and rival the West End for the latest in amenities. Since the 60s London and fashion have been intertwined. The relationship today is stronger than ever, from the designer boutiques of Bond Street, department stores like Selfridges and Liberty, to Burberry’s iconic Regent Street home and the tailors of Savile Row, the West End will ensure London never loses its flair. More importantly the city’s fashion hub is just minutes away.
