Town and Country: Addison Road
- By Adam Foster
- 20 October 2015
Addison Road, an original country manor in a central London location features as Town and Country’s property of the day.
THE PROPERTY: A four-storey family home that was built in 1856 as a city retreat and soon became an artistic establishment
THE LOCATION: The home is situated within striking distance of Holland Park in London’s Kensington
THE INTERIOR: With seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, a double-height reception room, a library, a private office and garage space, this is a vast family residence that has the feel of a grand country house with all the benefits of an urban location. At the heart of the home is the cathedral-style studio, which has arched dormer windows that fill the room with natural light
WHY WE LOVE IT: Our highlight is the enormous, handcrafted library in the dining room, where there is space to store more than 2,000 books
