The home next door to the iconic pink house from Love Actually is currently listed for £3.25 million ( approximately $4.3 million).
Situated on one of Notting Hill's most famous mews, this architecturally re-imagined house is featured in the film as it sits next to the home where Mark – played by Andrew Lincoln – confesses his love for Keira Knightley's character Juliet.
While the mews is instantly associable with the festive favorite, the home's interiors are equally as noteworthy. Beyond the property's monochromatic façade, the home is a discreet trove of modern decorating ideas that are worth stealing in your home – long after the holidays conclude.
Despite the home's striking dark exterior, architect Andy Martin designed the open-plan kitchen and dining room to draw from the southerly light to create a bright and airy entertaining space.
This zone offers a host of modern kitchen ideas, including a sleek breakfast island, stainless steel fitted units, and floating open shelving – offering a stylish storage solution.
Beyond the cooking space, the floor exhibits a Scandinavian statement through a Schotten & Hansenwhich Siberian lurch wood wall – an escapist feature that replays throughout the property. In contrast to this Scandi-cool aesthetic, the property showcases industrial bones through the stark concrete floors that give the home a thoroughly modern feel.
Beyond the main floor, downstairs, the home boasts a spacious entertaining room and a bathroom. Meanwhile, the upstairs offers three bedrooms, including a master suite that sweeps across the entire floor. Here, there is a window seat, where you can overlook a famous movie set over your morning coffee.
However, perhaps the pièce de résistance of the home is the sunny roof garden, curated by London-based garden designer Tania Urban. This space has set the standard for urban garden ideas – and is complete with views over Hollywood history – and West London's rooftops.
Chelsea Whelan, a Partner in Knight Frank's Notting Hill office, similarly praises the decked roof terrace for its outdoor kitchenette, hot tub, and views across the 'neighboring picturesque properties.'
This home, in St. Lukes Mews, Notting Hill, London W11, is currently on the market for £3.25 million. You can discover more via the listing on Knight Frank (opens in new tab).
