This stylish and modern Notting Hill The townhouse is located behind a striking, beautifully maintained façade with white stucco from the 1950s in a row of “very elegant, typically London buildings”, according to listing agent Louisa Brodie.
Designed by Banda Property, the three-story home overlooks an idyllic private patio and benefits from soaring ceilings, an abundance of natural light and “a mix of large, flexible spaces, but also more private, cozy nooks,” said Mrs. said Brodie.
A derivation from Banda’s typical neutral palettes, this home is bursting with bold, confident colors, patterns and earth tones, while still exhibiting the brand’s distinctive use of natural materials and texture. An eclectic mix of furniture, antique gemstones, retro classics and Banda-tailored pieces is complemented by newer, carefully purchased pieces from upcoming craftsmen and designers, according to Ms. Brodie.
“With this family townhouse, we have incorporated more colorful, playful themes into the design, which see a departure from the muted and understated themes of some of our recent projects,” said Edo Mapelli Mozzi, founder and creative director of Banda, who currently has a number of projects underway across the globe.

The 4,500 square meter townhouse unit has three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, divided on the lower level, first and second floor of a seven-storey building containing a total of 15 units.
This townhouse in central London enjoys a significant amount of outdoor space. In addition to the private garden area directly in front, which residents can access using a key fob, the home itself has a 185 square meter private garden at the back (which can be accessed from both the lower level and first floor), as well as a 40 square meter terrace on the second level next to the main bedroom.
Each unit in the building has access to concierge services from Monday to Friday. The concierge can receive supplies, provide access for contractors and maintain common areas in the building, which means that this home “can be a lock-and-leave, just as much as it could be a main residence, which is quite unique for having without huge service fees, “said Ms. Brodie.” With great gyms in the area and Hyde Park so close, we did not feel we needed on-site fitness facilities, allowing us to keep annual service charges to a minimum. “
Inside, the home offers one huge entertainment zone on the lower level, complete with a cinema room, a bar and wine room, as well as a beautifully designed kindergarten and playground.
The enviable, central London location of Leinster Square in Notting Hill is “wonderfully located in terms of facilities, whilst being a quiet area full of beautiful historic buildings,” Ms. Brodie. Just a stone’s throw from the fine restaurants and shops of Westbourne Grove and Hereford Road, the location is also moments from the long-awaited redevelopment of Queensway, which “will bring new life to the area, including high-end shopping and restaurants,” according to Ms. Brodie.
The location is also a short walk from the huge, idyllic green space of Hyde Park, and also benefits from being very well connected via the Notting Hill Gate, Queensway and Bayswater Tube stations, while Heathrow Airport can be reached in 30 minutes by train via Paddington Heathrow Express.
“It’s a very safe, family-friendly residential area,” Ms. Brodie, who also noted the appeal of the home’s proximity to green spaces in today’s work from home. “If you need to work from home a little more, you might as well have a beautiful garden square to look out at and be closer to the parks to get your exercise.”
The address is also within walking distance of some of the best preparatory schools in London, including Pembridge Hall and Wetherby Prep.
