Pastel colours, classic details and the occasional pretty ornament – Portland Road VIII has a lively charm. First up inside is the traditional sitting room, where two sofas sit surrounded by gilt-framed artworks and ornaments. Also on the ground floor is the office, and then stairs lead down to the smart kitchen. There’s a stylish dining table and a small sofa, beyond which doors open into the garden.
Up on the first floor, you’ll come to the pink-and-white fourth bedroom (which has a single bed) and the master bedroom. The latter is painted pale turquoise, and has a gilded sleigh king-size bed and an ensuite bathroom with a roll-top bathtub and a separate shower. And up on the second floor, there’s the main bathroom and another two bedrooms – the third bedroom and the simple second bedroom (both with double beds).
