Large, airy rooms, a garden alive with butterflies and sparrows, one of the capitalâ€™s finest parks almost at the end of the roadâ€¦ you will trill with delight at Canning Place. In one of the most desirable spots in London this tall white house is long and lean and lovely. Step past traditional iron railings and into a collection of smart, elegant rooms, furnished with just a few well-chosen pieces of furniture, both modern and antique. Out beyond those railings youâ€™ve the museums, Kensington Gardens, Knightsbridge and Kensington High Streetâ€¦ but lie on your lawn, the sunshine twinkling through the leaves, and youâ€™d think you were in the middle of the countryside.
On the wing
It was out in the garden that your host first fell in love with Canning Place. That was fifteen years ago, and heâ€™s since renovated it, with the help of your charming hostess. They love the great outdoors, whether itâ€™s scuba diving or skiing through fresh snow.
Itâ€™s hard not to strut in these high-ceilinged rooms, painted in a melange of creams, golds and whites. The double sitting room features two fireplaces, acres of comfy couch space and a balcony view out across that glorious garden. Thereâ€™s a cosy modern TV room downstairs, and a country style kitchen â€“ with the coffee machine youâ€™ll need to take on the city. Eat at the breakfast bar, out on the grass, or in the panelled dining room, where you can all raise a glass from the hundred-year-old chairs.
The three bedrooms are bright and simple, each with an infinitely soft double bed. The master bedroom is subtly sumptuous, with its generous proportions, original fireplace and a sandstone ensuite, while romantic souls will be captivated by the double up in the attic, with its exposed brickwork and delicious sense of peace.
Take your morning jog around the Serpentine in nearby Hyde Park, or, if youâ€™re feeling lazy, content yourself with feeding the swans on the Round Pond. Shoppers will find themselves caught between the designer paradise that is Knightsbridge and the top British brands of Kensington High Street. The museums are only a couple of streets away, and there are cafes and restaurants all around, while if youâ€™re heading for the West End, itâ€™s just a five minute walk to Gloucester Road tube.
