27 Linden Gardens is a traditional Victorian townhouse, re-imagined into four apartments that feature generous and well-proportioned living spaces with front-to-back views. Located in the Pembridge Conservation area on a sought-after tree lined cul-de-sac in the heart of Notting Hill, the property is a reminder of London’s proud architectural heritage. Behind this enviable façade, the property has been extended, remodelled and renovated, restoring the splendour it once enjoyed with inspiring design and contemporary interiors.
A pleasing advantage of buildings from this era, the exceptionally high ceilings are enhanced by fine period cornice work and decorative ceiling roses which provide the backdrop to modern interiors. Equipped with a range of high specification fittings and the latest technology, these apartments are the perfect place to entertain and unwind. Whilst the façade of the building has been restored in-keeping with the surrounding conservation area, the inclusion of a passenger lift provides the modern conveniences a development of this calibre deserves.
Originally built as a single residence for a wealthy Victoria family, many period features have been retained or replicated including cornicing, ceiling roses, skirting and architraves. The existing attractive exterior has been restored in line with its origins and with the architecture of the exterior.
Each living space has been considered for open-pla living with entire front-to-back vistas through the innovative use of glass walling and balustrading allowing natural light to flood through. Thoughtfully designed spaces with Rako mood lighting and a Sonos-friendly multi-room speaker system create a relaxing and peaceful sanctuary whilst also providing an opportunity for a fantastic entertaining space for both friends and family.
Beautifully designed with the award-winning kitchen designer Roundhouse, the bespoke open-plan kitchens feature Gaggenau, Siemens and Liebherr appliances, perfectly complemented by Silestone worktops. A bronze mirrored splashback adorns Apartment 1 with a herringbone tiled splashback to Apartment 4. The cabinetry consists of a combination of matt lacquered doors finished in Farrow and Ball “Manor House Gray” balanced with a “Driftwood” island and wall units in Apartment 1 and “Driftwood” wall units to Apartment 4.
The generous bedroom suites provide space to relax and unwind; Apartment 1 features two master suites both with ensuite bathrooms and dressing rooms, while the master to Apartment 4 has a luxurious feel with a dressing area leading to the ensuite bathroom. All wardrobes are supplied and fitted by Neatsmith.
Luxurious and contemporary bathrooms feature Catalano basins, Zucchetti brassware and Clearwater freestanding baths that are eye-catching focal points. All bathrooms and shower rooms are fully tiled and feature marble-effect porcelain tiles laid in a herringbone arrangement.
Vibrant Westbourne Grove acts as the heartbeat of the area, renowned for its distinctive café lifestyle, bohemian style bakeries, designer boutiques and fashionable jewellers.
