The Gardens were designed by Anouska Hempel in minimalist Japanese style and for several decades were owned and used exclusively by the five star Hempel Hotel. The final scenes of Notting Hill (1999) have been filmed here. A substantial and spacious Victorian villa with a white stucco façade which has been preserved while the interior is being newly reconstructed to the latest and most exacting specification, contemporary but at the same time respecting the period architecture and features.
Top Architects and Interior Designers have been engaged to create a private residence of unrivalled quality which will have, amongst others, the unique feature of a large private terrace, 25m x 5m, adjacent and with direct access to the Gardens. The Residence will total 8,300 square feet of gross internal space. There will be six bedroom suites on the upper floors and two additional terraces on the first and second floors.
The residence benefits of the private zen garden, created by world renowned designer Anoushka Hempel. Characterised as one of London’s famously elegant garden squares, this garden is perhaps one of the most distinctive. Tenants of 17 Craven Hill Gardens have immediate access to this private secluded garden. The final scenes of the Hollywood film Notting Hill (1999), starring Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant have been filmed here.
