Where Stella McCartney’s barely there

Moving into a new home before you’ve sold your old one is a luxury only the extremely wealthy can afford, and that includes fashion designer Stella McCartney.

The 41-year-old, who designed the Olympic kit for Team GB, has put her former home (see pictures below) in a fashionable back street of Notting Hill on the market for £2.5 million leaving its large, open plan rooms stripped of everything and, for a clothes designer, looking very bare.

One design feature that has surprised many is the second floor master bedroom, which is open plan across the whole footprint of the property and includes the bathroom – so Stella’s Victorian bath now stand a lonely vigil at one end of the room.

But as well as an unusual layout, the property offers membership of a fashionable club – the Notting Hill set.

Just around corner is is The Cow, an oysters and champagne pub run by Terence Conran’s culinary son Tom plus famous local residents include comedian Ruby Wax, model Elle McPherson, actress Sienna Miller and musician Damon Albarn. The Travel Bookshop, where Hugh Grant works in the 1999 film Notting Hill, is a ten minute walk from the property’s doorstep.

But such starry connections haven’t helped Stella sell. The property has been on the market since June and although there are rumours she’s just received an offer, it remains for sale.

Stella, who has moved permanently to her Georgian mansion in Worcestershire with husband Alasdhair and their four children, bought the property in 1997 for £695,000 so if she gets her asking price will trouser a £1.8 million profit on the sale.
