This elegant and spacious three-bedroom maisonette with walled communal garden is located at the northern end of Thistle Grove, midway between Chelsea and South Kensington. Set over two expansive levels, the apartment, which extends to almost 2,400 sq ft internally, has been the subject of a comprehensive renovation to a design by tg Studio and has excellent ceiling heights throughout.
The apartment is found on a paved pedestrian walkway, where traditional brickwork and street lanterns evoke a sense of London’s history. The front door opens to a grand entrance hall with marble flooring, timber-clad walls and steps leading up to the centre of the raised-ground level. To the right are a large dual aspect kitchen and dining space. The smart monochrome kitchen is designed by Doca, with appliances by Swiss brand v-zug. The dining room is arranged within the south-west facing bay, from which a pane swings open to provide access to the garden.
On the other side of the hall is a light and spacious living room, with a panelled ceiling and ethanol-fuelled fireplace. An office space adjoins the room through an archway with sliding pocket doors, and a second south-facing bay window throws light deep into the plan. Engineered-oak floorboards with underfloor heating extend across the level and the neutral colour palette and natural materials create a sense of serenity.
The three bedrooms are all located on the lower-ground floor, where high ceilings and large windows bring in natural light, adding to the apartment’s sense of scale and volume. The master bedroom occupies most of the western half of the plan, with a walk-in wardrobe, an en-suite bathroom illuminated by a bay window, and French doors that open onto an external lightwell. The second bedroom has its own en-suite shower and the third has use of a family bathroom.
Thistle Grove is located at the epicentre of the celebrated selection of shops, restaurants, bars and boutiques of Chelsea and Kensington. Gloucester Road, South Kensington, High Street Kensington and the King’s Road are all reached by foot in minutes. Sloane Square, the Royal Court Theatre and the Serpentine Gallery are close by, along with Battersea Park and Chelsea Physic Garden. Nearby, the rhs Chelsea Flower Show is held annually in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea on the Embankment. The open green spaces of Kensington Gardens and Holland Park are also within easy reach.
The nearest underground stations are Gloucester Road and South Kensington (Piccadilly, District and Circle lines). The A4/M4 is close by for fast routes to the West and Heathrow Airport.
