If you dream of being whisked away by Hugh Grant and/or Julia Roberts, and have a couple of million quid to spare, then a swanky resi scheme in W11 may be right up your street.
A parade of shops on a Victorian terrace featured in the 1999 romcom Notting Hill is being transformed into luxury apartments with views of the famous blue door to Mr Grant’s flat from the film.
The £29m redevelopment, which was recently financed by specialist lender Atelier, will see the seven freehold properties, including a former hardware store on Westbourne Park Road that appeared as a backdrop in the movie, turned into seven apartments and a row of boutique shops. The flats, priced from £1.95m, will be available this autumn.
The scheme, named Kensington Park Corner, is in the desirable W11 London postcode where movie fans still make pilgrimages to this day.
“More than two decades after Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts sparked the original Notting Hill effect, this remains one of the capital’s most in-demand areas,” said Atelier chief origination officer Martin Gilsenan.
