This bespoke designed property in Notting Hill is an unusual find in one of London’s most desirable locations. And it has one heck of a price tag…

This property on Lonsdale Road in Notting Hill is a unique proposition within a world-renowned enclave; a piece of architecture that responds beautifully and explicitly to its surrounding framework.
The incredible design and build took many years to piece together, all the while considering the local environment, sentiment and demographic.
Taking conscientious reference from the original building that once stood in its place, property and design business Fenton Whelan have pulled out all the stops to create one of Notting Hill’s finest bespoke homes. With inimitable attention to detail the finishes are unique and fastidiously sourced.
Oh and that price tag? The property will set you back a cool £15 million.
‘Our clients come to us as they have the best properties in the business,’ says Rob Atkins, co-founder of specialist estate agency Domus Nova, which has listed the property. ‘They are always unique and represent the pinnacle of exemplary design in architecture or interior styling.
‘I love the fastidious design and build of this house,’ enthuses Atkins. ‘It has been intelligently created and executed and it shows in every small detail and at every turn.’

Truly turnkey, the property covers off every conceivable desire that a local or global family could ever wish for.
Large pockets of south-facing outside space punctuate every level. An impressive, elegant cascading staircase and elevator provide access to all the floors – another very rare offering.
The lower floors offer a 12.5-metre heated pool, steam room, sauna, gym, media room, guest suite and staff accommodation with separate access. At ground-floor level, there is an integral and secure garage space for a large car and additional storage.
Right on the doorstep of the finest boutiques, bars and restaurants the area has to offer, this is a very special home and has been masterminded by the best in the business and Atkins assures me, it shows at every single level.
‘The location is second-to-none and what has been achieved on the site is jaw-dropping,’ says Atkins. ‘I don’t believe this type of house could be built again in this desirable enclave.

‘The various pockets of south-facing outside space deliver an extended perspective and flow to every floor; they punctuate the house so well and draw in streams of natural light. And then of course, the pool and gym floor is insane – one of the best I have seen in recent years!’
But for Atkins, it’s the location that he feels is the true winner in the draw to this property: ‘It is unparalleled in its charm, convenience, and privacy – somehow all at the same time,’ he says. ‘Also the scale of the house and how that delivers great volume and lateral space on each floor is a big selling point.
‘On top of that, the internal arrangement is rare and hard to achieve these days, especially within the numerous planning restrictions,’ he continues.
‘The integral garage and lift to all floors is unique for this enclave. Ultimately, knowing how long this project took, from purchase to planning, from construction through to completion makes it a rarity in its overall vision, detail and flawless execution.’
