A home fit for royalty
Catherine Golding reports on a newly-refurbished, ground-floor apartment in North Gate on Prince Albert Road
Refurbishments have their good points and their bad. Some are better than others but you can be sure that this refurbishment is of the highest standard and quality. The evidence is there for all to see in the images on these pages.
Rooms have been modernised without changing the feel of the apartment. New, modern features blend seamlessly with older, more traditional elements such as intricate architraves, detailed coving, high skirting boards, old-style radiators and exquisite parquet floors. Marble and brass sit alongside modern shower units in the bathrooms. Lighting comes from contemporary downlighters or more traditional wall lamps and chandeliers suspended from ceiling roses. It is a balance that is very hard to achieve but one which has been accomplished here with ease.
The end result is a ground-floor apartment which comprises circa 2,772sq ft (258sq m) and offers great volume, plenty of natural light and lateral space throughout.
The property is located opposite Regent’s Park in North Gate – a prestigious block on Prince Albert Road, NW8 – and is available through local agents Ian Green Residential. An enviable location, it is situated at the foot of St John’s Wood High Street and within walking distance to St John’s Wood Underground Station.
Other benefits include 24-hour porterage and private off-street parking but the main plus of living here would be the shear enjoyment of life in such as marvellous apartment. It is a home that really is fit for royalty.
