Evening Standard - West End Final Extra - ES Homes and Property - - News -

when you’re mak­ing your es­cape, where bet­ter than an Area of Out­stand­ing Nat­u­ral Beauty? This sub­stan­tial house and its twobed­room hol­i­day cot­tage are in just such a spot — Sal­tash in Corn­wall.

This idyl­lic re­treat comes with a stream-fed pond and a blue­bellflanked path lead­ing down to the River Tiddy, where fish­ing rights mean you and your guests can catch salmon and en­joy ob­serv­ing the ot­ters and king­fish­ers from a decked bal­cony and boat launch.

There’s a spa­cious kitchen/break­fast room, gen­er­ous re­cep­tion rooms, a games room and five bed­rooms, all set in just un­der two acres of gar­dens with quay frontage and a fur­ther 19 acres of pas­ture land and wood­land in­cluded.

Ply­mouth’s ma­rina and trans­port links are about nine miles away. Call Coun­try & Wa­ter­side (01872 240999).

this six-storey beauty in El­gin Cres­cent, W11 has land­scaped gar­dens with ac­cess to Ros­mead Gar­den, where Hugh Grant and Ju­lia Roberts’s char­ac­ters canoo­dled in the film Not­ting Hill. Re­mod­elled to an über-lux­u­ri­ous spec, there’s a cin­ema, wine cellar, an open-plan kitchen/din­ing/fam­ily room and an el­e­gant re­cep­tion room. The master bed­room suite cov­ers the en­tire first floor, soak­ing up those gar­den square views, and four more bed­rooms are spread across the up­per floors.

Por­to­bello Road, West­bourne Grove and some of Lon­don’s best prep schools are on the doorstep. Through Knight Frank (020 8012 3477).
