Wildly chic, excellent location, newly decorated a family house for someone with excellent taste...
That spread in Architectural Digest is yours for taking in this cool and quirky Victorian house. Recently re-done, it is at once modern and cosy (not something that easily achieved), and the grass green carpet runs like a river through the house. Currently home to several children, the ground floor conservatory/dining area and kitchen are fantastic, leading out to the garden, with a shed at the end which any right-thinking person would bag immediately, personal space being at a premium in Central London.

The master bed suite also takes PS into consideration, with separate bathrooms (really, do you like sharing?), and there is plenty of room upstairs for juniors. At the top is a converted loft which has teenage hangout written all over it. In case you are wondering about where to store the staff, there is a separate studio apartment at the bottom, which means that everyone has their own space. Vital.

St Charles Square runs off the increasingly trendy Ladbroke Grove, in the area de choix of arty/media types, and those bohemians who have been forced further north by the tidal waves of bankers and general arrivistes. Consequently, it has all the great vibes, and edginess that used to define Notting Hill, together with some great schools (this house is opposite a Catholic Primary), restaurants and clubs. The nearest tube is Ladbroke Grove (Hammersmith & City) and the M4/M40 corridor with its access to Heathrow and the West Country is close by.
