The ‘Dolls House’ facade of this early Victorian home has been retained and a brand new house created behind. Inside the front door of this house lies a dramatic double height entrance vestibule space leading to a large light filled staircase.

This detached house is filled with light, drama and character. The existing front facade has been beautifully restored and new work uses traditional materials and detailing to create an authentic period look.

The entrance level is designed for entertaining in the grand style. The lower ground floor, which opens onto a large west facing garden, contains all the day to day family living spaces; and a well lit basement contains swimming pool, media room and gymnasium.

From chimney pots to fireplaces, doors to floors - every aspect of this house has been specifically designed and co-ordinated to create an exceptional home.

Every item from cushions to fireplaces has been individually selected. A number of bespoke pieces have also been commissioned, reflecting the scrupulous attention to detail delivered by Studio Indigo throughout the project.


Over the past twenty years or so, I have forged a close working relationship with Mike Fisher and, since 2005, with Studio Indigo.

Each and every house he has refurbished for me, both here in London (all in Kensington and Chelsea) and in South Africa, has become a much loved family home and, equally importantly I believe, has increased in value far in excess of the London average.

His attention to detail, his ability to turn an uncompromising space into something special, the materials he uses and the quality of his finishes are second to none. He also employs only the best contractors and craftsmen in order to produce homes of exceptional quality.

I can think of no-one better than Mike and his team at Studio Indigo to carry out the work on your home. I know you will be delighted with the results.
