London, United Kingdom
Located in a red brick building on London’s High Street Kensington, the Bank House apartment offers generous living space, kitchen and three bedrooms. Bank House is a stone’s throw from all the capital’s best shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions, making this luxury home in Kensington one of London’s most desirable addresses.
Bank House is set on London's Kensington High Street, directly opposite Kensington Palace and with views over the chestnut trees into Kensington Gardens - also known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's back garden.
Set in a period building, this luxury apartment has been brought thoroughly up to date by yoo Furnish, the renowned interior design company founded by John Hitchcox and designer Philippe Starck.
The reception area of this luxury home in Kensington is open plan, with three distinct living spaces cleverly defined by differing floor levels. It's decorated throughout in a palette of white, chocolate and café au lait, and furnished in an eclectic mixture of styles. A scarlet armchair, reminiscent of an Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair, for example, is complemented by a traditional chesterfield sofa in soft brown. A retro swivel chair in brown leather is matched with a contemporary chaise longue in scarlet. Shiny chrome tables and giant floor lamp echo the mirrored cabinet, while a Moooi rabbit lamp gazes wistfully towards a framed period photograph.
The bedrooms are equally stylish, with Philippe Starck Ghost Chairs, giant contemporary headboards and chic cowhide rugs. The master bedroom's en-suite bathroom, meanwhile, boasts a beautiful contemporary freestanding bath.
The apartment has pale wood floors throughout, and is flooded with natural light.
You'll find everything you need on your doorstep, from the biggest Whole Foods Market in London down the street at no 63, to the best selection of art and antiques, just across the road in Kensington Church Street. The apartment also offers easy access to the rest of London.
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is markedly affluent, with virtually no high-rise buildings and numerous upmarket residential streets. Many of the capital's leading attractions, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and Royal Albert Hall, are within walking distance. So, too, is some of the best shopping and dining in the capital, though the area has some great stores and restaurants of its own.
The pièce de résistance? Kensington Gardens, one of the capital's eight Royal Parks, offering 242 acres of lawns, mature trees and ornamental flowerbeds. It's home to the Albert Memorial, the Serpentine Galleries, the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground, and Kensington Palace, the official residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The Royals have a penchant for this area, too.
