Things ancient and modern - a traditional Victorian London house, with an all new, all groovy interior...
Take a dilapidated terraced house in a great little street, and give it the architectural version of serious Botox. The current owners approached up and coming architects Tigg Coll to wave their wand, and bring their property into the twenty-first century. The result ticks all the boxes, from the newly dug basement with a big gym and even bigger media room, to the two storey lightwell that reaches from sitting room to kitchen below, with double height doors out into the garden.

Upstairs, the master bedroom suite is immensley satisfactory - the dressing room is big enough to mark out territory, and there are great views from the bath. Further up is a little room that works well for a baby, but could be an office (more territory action) and at the top are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. A great house (and location) for teenagers, or those with a growing family.

Campden Grove runs perpendicular off Kensington Church Street - between Notting Hill in the North and Kensington High Street to the South, in the heart of gracious living. Kensington Church Street is a mecca for antique lovers and those who value a local community. Many of the shops have been there for uears, and the restaurants are perennially popular. The nearest tube stations are High Street Kensington (District and Circle) and Notting Hill, (Circle and Central Lines) and the M4/M40 corridors with their routes to Heathrow and the West Country (and probably your country estate) are easily accessed.
