A light-filled house in a friendly, foodie neighborhood. Professional chefs kitchen, herb garden, unique contemporary design. Peaceful, quiet and very safe. Excellent transport and lots of green spaces outside the door, delis, boutiques, bakeries, coffee houses a five minute walk down the hill.
I am a commercial interior designer who also runs a cooking school. The house is eclectic in design - art from friends and some of my own, antiques - mostly chinese, and lots of colour everywhere.
The loft bedroom is entered through a door on the first floor and up a
narrow staircase - totally private. The ensuite is open plan, with a bath, shower, large sink, toilet and bum wash with plenty of room for storage of
There are two skylights, two triple pane french doors that lead to two
juliette balconies with a very urban view and morning sun. The bed is a
king size, with 100% cotton sheets and anti-allergy pillows. There are 3
big wardrobes for clothing storage.
top floor bedroom (private with door at the bottom of the stairs), kitchen, dining sitting room, garden, terrace, laundry facilities.
Interaction with guests
when working, i will not be chatting away with the guests; i just chain myself to the drawing board in the studio. the kitchen is where we will usually end up congregating and having a glass of wine.
Other things to note
the house is very quiet - ticked away behind a block of flats. great for people who love to sleep, read, daydream, meditate.
there are a lot of stairs - at the entrance, eight up, eight down. in the house there are three floors. ground, first, second.
the house is a no-smoke zone. smoking is allowed in the garden but ashtrays must be used and the cigarette ends must be disposed of in the safety bin provided.
no pets are allowed as the owner is very allergic. all bedding and linen is hypoallergenic and washed frequently.
please treat the fixtures and furnishings with care; a lot of thought has gone into the design of the house and the antiques and modern pieces are all very special.
please respect that this is a residential neighbourhood, and noise should be kept to a minimum after 11pm and when entering and leaving the building
