Originally built as a private residence in 1858, 22 Kensington Gardens Square rises to four storeys plus basement level, with apartments ranging between 1,216 – 1,636 sq ft. – and enjoys a prime position near the centre of the western side of the square, overlooking mature trees, a manicured lawn and delicate planting that comes to life in spring. The buildings now house two lateral apartments with two bedrooms and four duplexes with two and three bedrooms, with the two lower duplex units benefiting from private terraces.
Working in close consultation with a heritage consultant, our team of refurbishment specialists, including joiners, artisan plasterers and craftsmen have transformed the rundown buildings into luxury homes which combine the best in contemporary specification with exquisite period features.
A number of old partitioning walls have been removed to restore the original grandiose proportions, with unique layouts for each of the apartments, while original 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.
Complementing these period features, the specification comprises bespoke joinery to the living rooms, Herringbone parquet flooring, open-plan bespoke kitchens by Roundhouse with Miele appliances, wrought iron standalone radiators, bespoke wardrobes to the master and second bedrooms plus luxurious bathrooms with intricate parquet marble tiles and Villeroy and Boch sanitaryware. The homes further benefit from programmable mood lighting and integrated speakers.
"This has been one of our most challenging projects to date, requiring meticulous structural, planning and building control to deliver what is a highly unique scheme, in an area where conversions of this standard are hard to find."
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 – much of which can be found at the Grade II listed Whiteleys Shopping Centre. The retail heart of fashionable Westbourne Grove is just moments away, with its extensive collection of designer boutiques, luxury brand flagship stores and more.
For transport connections, there are three Underground stations within walking distance, providing fast access across London and beyond, including nearby Paddington’s high speed links to Heathrow.
Prices start at £2,500,000. The dressed show home is available to view by appointment only, along with all of the other completed units.
