On the bright side
Steps lead down from a smart South Kensington street to this lower ground-floor home’s entrance. Beyond the glass front door is an airy, open-plan living area, where the dining table and six colourful chairs are straight ahead. Behind that is the sitting area – a contemporary space with a green rug and sky-blue cushions. And off to the right there’s a minimally styled kitchen.
The doorway to the left of the kitchen opens into a corridor, which leads first to a study nook, then to the shower room. Further along are the double and master bedrooms, the latter with its own ensuite bathroom and wide windows overlooking a green garden. Outside, South Kensington is impressive: shops and restaurants abound here, and you’re just a short walk away from London’s museum district.
