A substantial Grade II listed residence comprising main house and coach house with a total of approximately 8,882 sq.ft. The house has wonderful lateral space being around 70ft wide and it has off street parking for several cars plus a paved garden and two garages.
On the market for the first time in over 60 years the house was once home to Lord Frederic Leighton who lived and painted here from 1860 to 1866 and it is he who built the large music room/artist's studio adjacent to the drawing room.
Fronted with ornate unpainted stucco 2 Orme Square spans over three floors plus a basement, it has a further coach house with large garage, a good sized garden and a further garage. In addition there are two parking spaces to the front of the house.
Number two has an imposing entrance hall and running to the right on entering the house there is a substantial drawing room leading to a wonderful double height former artist’s studio. On this floor there is also the kitchen and a good sized dining room which enjoys views of the square. There is access from the drawing room to the garden which has a north westerly aspect.
The first floor master bedroom suite has French door leading onto a balcony enjoying spectacular views of the Square along with a sunny, southerly aspect. The two further floors provide for very strong ancillary accommodation, storage and utility rooms and a good nursery floor.
The feel throughout is reminiscent of a country house or one of the larger houses on Chiswick Mall and with a sympathetic programme of restoration this would make a very complete residence.
Orme Square is one of the few private squares left in prime central London and it has private parking along with a pretty garden square. It is opposite the entrance to Kensington Gardens and near to the north end of Kensington Palace Gardens and it enjoys excellent transport links being near to Notting Hill underground (Central Line) and the many restaurants and shops of Notting Hill Gate.
