The top two floors of a smart Bayswater address spacious, convenient, it ticks boxes all over the place...
This duplex is surprisingly big at the top of a double fronted house set back from the road in one of London's smarter enclaves. There is something slightly sexy about this area where worlds collide, and Mata Haris smoulder and dazzle. This flat is reassuringly and solidly British, a safe haven from the outside world, and definitely an investment.

With four bedrooms, two en-suite, and a big open-plan reception/kitchen/dining first floor, it's a great entertaining space, or even a family home. The floors are all stripped wood and the walls white, which lends a certain freshness. Best of all there is a separate study which could become a little playroom, but provides that all important (and so hard to find) separate reception room, yearned for by parents everywhere.

Craven Hill is at the eastern end of Bayswater, before you hit the more egalitarian streets of Paddington. Always home to the wealthier classes, the Craven Hill area has been the location for numerous films, and its white stucco streets still have that village-y feel that so many come to London to find. Paddington mainline station, gateway to the West Country and Heathrow is a short walk away, (tube: Bakerloo/Circle/District/Hammersmith & City) or you could head in the other direction to the trendy streets of Queensway and Notting Hill to the West.
