A beautifully restored five-bedroom family house designed by Mirva Yoshinari has gone on sale in Notting Hill for £5,995,000.
The property stands out with an industrial-chic black exterior and gold-embellished period features.
The impressive double reception room on the raised ground floor maintains original period features such as the ornate cornicing and feature fireplaces.
Combined with the high ceilings and a bay window, it's a naturally bright space that mixes authenticity with splashes of glamour (the drop chandelier is a highlight) and statement rustic touches (those patinated Belgian-style large table lamps).
The modern kitchen/breakfast room is a generous size with ample entertaining space for a family and opens on to a private west-facing garden through Crittal doors.
Upstairs, the master suite occupies the first floor with an exceptional en suite bathroom and separate study, and there are a further four bedrooms, all decorated in a contemporary refined-rustic style.
The traditional claw-foot freestanding bath and parquet flooring are given a modern twist with metro tiles in the shower and wood cladding behind the sinks. There are four bathrooms in the property, each with a chic finish.
The house also boasts a roof terrace with lovely panoramic views, while planning permission has been granted to add a basement level, too.
St Lukes Road is one of the area's tree-lined streets in the heart of Notting Hill.
Well located for the boutique shops, cafes and restaurants of Portobello Road and Westbourne Grove, the house is also close to underground stations at Westbourne Park and Ladbroke Grove, along with the Central, Circle and District Lines at Notting Hill Gate.
The house is on sale via Hamptons for £5,995,000.
