Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in the 1830s as a tied cottage for Kensington Palace, this charming townhouse retains many period features and could be developed into a substantial family home (subject to planning permission). The chief bricklayer lived here and the stepped flower beds at the rear of the garden were built by hime during World War 2 as a vegetable garden. This lovely garden is exceptionally spacious for the Hillgate area and the house also benefits from a sun drenched roof terrace off the first floor landing. The property has enjoyed a brush with literary fame, Phyllis White (Baroness James of Holland Park) lived here when she was a serving Civil Servent in the crime section of the Home Office. She wrote her first novels here under the pseudonym of PD James. Hillgate Street is ideally placed for all of the popular shops, bars and restaurants of both Notting Hill and High Street Kensington.
