There are very few pockets of London these days that can justify the term, “urban village”, but Redfield Lane in SW5 pretty much nails it. Kenway Village is a profoundly tranquil place, tucked away in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. It’s just a stone’s throw from some of the area’s most vibrant restaurants, bars and coffee shops, plus an endless list of transport connections to propel you to every corner of the capital.
This unique home has been all but stripped back to the bare bones and re-built from the inside. It’s not what you’d expect from the pretty, period house from outside. The impeccably finished, light interiors, benefit from having windows on three sides of the building, then, the very top of the property is capped by a huge bespoke skylight which lets the sun through to the ground floor via its voided ceilings. Every floor has been meticulously designed with Scandinavian style, barely an inch of the floor space is wasted. The lower ground and ground floor have been executed in such a way that this house lends itself to sharers, as well as couples or a small family.
Both the bottom floors are self-contained suites, extremely private, no crossing paths in the night. Then the upper floor with its kitchen and living room, only divided by a crittall style window, leads up to a sun trapped terrace, a real rarity for the local area and big enough for some serious summer gatherings.
It really is hard to find fault with such a space with this stunning 2 bedroom house for sale in Kensington
