A stunning period conversion in North Kensington

15th May 2018

49 Bassett Road is an elegant period conversion comprising five spacious apartments, plus one exceptional coach house.

Situated in the Oxford Gardens Conservation Area in W10, it was one of the first of such designated areas in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, with strong historical connections to the arts and a status as one of the most sought after enclaves in West London.

Behind the carefully restored Victorian facade, an existing five-storey property has been imaginatively transformed into three duplex and two lateral apartments with a mixture of two and three bedrooms. In addition, the adjoining coach house has been remodelled into an expansive new five bedroom family townhouse, also neatly set back from the street behind electronic gates.

Thoughtfully designed with spacious open plan living areas, the layout and space of each home has been created to suit the needs of today’s most discerning buyers, while also retaining traditional elements such as restored bay windows, high ceilings, vintage style entrance tiles and a communal staircase with wrought iron balustrades. This is complemented by an outstanding specification including feature timber and glass staircases (in duplex apartments and the house), individually designed kitchens, bespoke bathroom timber herringbone parquet flooring with underfloor heating, Q acoustics ceiling speakers, programmable lighting, bespoke joinery and sleek hotel-like bathrooms with Italian porcelain titles. The apartments also include an internal passenger lift, providing access to the upper properties while many of the apartments have private outdoor space.

Stepping out of the door, Vibrant Westbourne Grove and Portobello Road are just a short stroll away, while the wider Notting Hill area is renowned for being one of the most appealing districts of London with its bohemian style cafés and bakeries, designer boutiques, Michelin star restaurants and cultural attractions. The development is located in Zone 2, just moments from Ladbroke Grove underground station on the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines, ensuring the rest of the capital is within easy reach. The convenient location also allows easy access abroad with Heathrow Airport just 25 minutes by car and the Eurostar at King’s Cross only 20 minutes by tube.

Mani Khiroya, Managing Director of Fruition Properties, comments: “49 Bassett Road builds upon our outstanding track record of delivering period, design-led restoration projects across the Notting Hill area. It is our fourth development of this kind in the past two years, seamlessly combining the best of old and new. The development is ideal for the modern Londoner who has refined tastes, with fine dining, cafes, boutiques, green spaces and transport links all within walking distance. The newly rebuilt coach house is perfect for families, with a number of excellent educational establishments in the surrounding area.”
