Aldridge Road Villas
Just off Westbourne Park Road, this elegant, high-ceilinged, five-storey home is presented in tip-top condition. There's bags of space on the first two floors for living and entertaining, whilst the top two floors have three of the four bedrooms, the last of which is found in the basement - perfect for a teenager or nanny.

A whopper of a property with a price-tag to match, this fully renovated freehold house is so tall that it even has its own lift. One inhabitant will have a self-contained studio with direct access to the roof terrace. The location is fantastic: Hyde Park, Knightsbridge and South Ken are all on the doorstep.

Church Gate Hall
Within spitting distance of the Thames and Bishops Park, Helen Mirren used to date one of the former owners of this super living space. Although it's got just two bedrooms (one's on a mezzanine level), owners can spread outin over 1,800 sq/ft and enjoy a light-flooded, double-height reception room.
Savills, 020 7731 9400
A fabulous, freehold family house that name drops high spec accessories like they're going out of fashion (Lutron lighting and a Sonos sound system for starters). The bonus is that it's also located in a gated, traffic-free enclave just near Hyde Park so it's brilliant for children.
