Love an evening spent wining and dining your partner only to be driven crazy by the sounds of their snores later on?

If you’ve the best part of £26million going spare, why not treat yourself to a new home and the house next door to solve the problem?

On the market with estate agent Russell Simpson , twin properties Holland House and Hyde House are mirror images of each other and sit in west London’s Campden Hill Road, close to Kensington High Street.

Both have guide prices of £12.75million.

Russell Simpson founder Alan Russell said: “While such designs tend to be seen more often on the continent, this is incredibly rare in the UK, with each individual property tending to have it’s own character

“This is why we foresee overseas buyers taking an interest in the properties, either a young European couple attracted by a fascinating layout or a buyer from the Middle East who could be interested in taking advantage of purchasing both for their wider family.”

But why stop at one, individually the homes offer a formidable list of facilities and that only doubles if you purchase both.

The houses each comprise more than 5,778sq ft spread over six floors, with an extra 1,000sq ft of gardens.

Behind the Victorian facades each house has six bedrooms, four bathrooms and a double reception room with French windows onto the terrace.

Homeowners can then stroll into the south-west facing garden, designed by Philip Nixon, who scooped a gold medal in the Chelsea Flower Show.

If you fancy further indulgence while escaping from a noisy partner or pesky relatives, there’s a cinema room, team room and 12m pool for each property to indulge in.

Both are also kitted out with cutting-edge technology, Sonos multi-room hi-fi systems and a temperature-controlled 200-bottle wine storage system.

For those who fancy venturing outside for a tipple, Kensington High Street’s bars and restaurants are a short walk away with both Holland Park and Kensington Gardens Tube within easy reach. From there, a commute to Canary Wharf takes around half an hour.
