Description

A rare opportunity has arisen to purchase this beautiful, elegant, first floor apartment overlooking Kensington Gardens/ Hyde Park.
The property has been lovingly preserved by the current owners who are only the second family to have lived here since its construction in the 1950's. What makes this property so special is its unique interior which pays homage to its original owner and creator, a Mr. Schofield, a theatre set designer for the London stage. Using his excellent design skills, his ingenious use of space and illusion he transformed the original interior into a truly wonderful home full of exquisite detail and hidden surprises. There are secret doors and hidden cupboards in both reception rooms.
The apartment, a generous 1,267 sq ft (117m2) is accessed via its own front door on Bayswater Road. A wide internal staircase leads to the first floor. The accommodation comprises: An elegant, south facing 22ft drawing room with feature French doors that open on to a small balcony overlooking the park. At the north end of the room huge double doors open to reveal an intimate, formal dining room with hidden door to the adjacent eat-in kitchen. There are two double bedrooms, a single bedroom, family bathroom and guest cloakroom. There is an additional balcony leading off the kitchen with space for alfresco dining.

The property was gently updated and completely redecorated some four years ago, remaining true to its original colour pallet using Farrow and Ball paint and retaining all the original bespoke cabinetry, marbled paint effects and parquet floor. This truly is a unique apartment awaiting a new family to embrace its charm and discover its secrets.

Leasehold 993 years remaining.
