If you want a Triplex that could only be in London, then here it is, restored to all its former glory, and filled with modern conveniences...
One of five separate Triplexes of varying sizes is available in this impressive development.

All the buildings and interiors are Grade II Listed and English Heritage stood over the Alchemi Group every step of the way. Everything is either original or restored to the original no small feat, considering the starting point. Stone staircases, the cornices and the floors, and even behind the paint, the plaster and walls are as the Victorians built them. The result is a refreshing change from the nuclear wasteland option so often seen around London today, making these Triplexes elegant, warm and comfortable.

This particular Triplex has four double bedrooms, a formal first floor drawing room and a sensational kitchen on the ground floor leading out to a large private patio. The lower ground goes out under the street, giving a proper utility room and a separate (staff/teen) entrance through the front stairwell. There is a concierge and access to the newly re-landscaped communal garden square (residents only). The room heights and the natural light are what really sets this development apart. That, and the finish, which is impressive: having stood for nearly 150 years, solid, comforting and safe, you can tell they are good for another 150. Now, that is value.

Leinster Square is tucked away in the web of streets between the Bayswater Road to the South and Westbourne Grove to the North. Long overdue a resurgence, the area has a great deal of charm, is a short walk from Notting Hill and its attendant gaieties, and even closer to Queensway, home of the ice-rink and a recipient of an imminent major face-lift. Yes, Bayswater is getting cool. The nearest Tube stations are Notting Hill (District, Circle & Central) or Bayswater (District & Circle), and the M4/M40 corridor with its access to Heathrow and West Country is close by.
