Out of this world
This two bedroom, two bathroom beauty oozes global charm, with carefully curated pieces of African furniture and splashes of colour all over the home. Housed within a gated community, it’s also deeply luxurious, with under-floor heating and an array of period features. West Kensington has a lot to offer even the most intrepid explorer, from the nearby Natural History Museum to the stunning garden squares which hide amid the period architecture. And once you’re weary from wandering, head home for a dip in the cheery Morroccan-style bathroom at Fitzjames Avenue.
Down to earth
Your host is a true English eccentric and an irresistible raconteur. As a photographic journalist he travels the world immortalising it, and the fruits of his labour line Fitzjames Avenue’s walls. Having picked up keepsakes in far flung corners of the planet, he’s built up a veritable emporium of cultural curiosities.
Once inside, you’ll be struck by the fascinating collection of global artefacts displayed around this two bedroom, two bathroom home. Share a bottle of wine around the dining room’s oak table, and soak up the African artwork which sits above the intricately carved side-table. An elegant writing desk in the corner inspires inspirational travel journals and letters home. If you want to get more sedentary still, recline on one of sitting room’s deep sofas, which pop in burnt orange and olive. Put your feet up and read one of the many art books on offer. In the adjacent kitchen, terracotta and earthernware meet sleek marble, so rustle up a befittingly cosmopolitan creation
When bedtime beckons, head to one of two large bedrooms. In the red bedroom, relax on the double bed or pull a chair up to the fireplace and get cosy. In the avocado bedroom, bathe in the light from the sash windows and devour a photography anthology on the kingsized bed, or take a dip in the mosaic ensuite.
With the affluence of Kensington and the cultural diversity of Hammersmith, West Ken is a cosmopolitan enclave in the heart of West London. Close to Fitzjames Avenue you’ll find the Olympia Exhibition Centre, Kensington High Street and shopping Mecca, Westfield. The bright lights of Oxford Circus are just 20 minutes away on the nearest tube.
