Holland Park House was built in 1605. lived in through marriage by the great essayist, Addison and then reigned over by the great Whig dynasty of the Foxes. It became a political and intellectual Mecca for luminaries such as Macaulay, Talleyrand and Gladstone. After wartime destruction, it now offers the opportunity of international cross cultural conversation through its function as a youth hostel.
Close by is Leighton House, home of a Director of the Royal Academy, with its Moorish hall. More modest Victorian dwellings can lay claim to represent the mainstream traditions of English building. Wooden floors are very much part of this. Still popular among commercial and domestic buildings, they offer both beauty and utility, as well as being hard wearing and easy to maintain.
Yet normal wear can induce a tired shabbiness, while neglect allows marks and scratches to progress to the point of real damage. It’s then the task of a specialist floor sanding company to bring it back to life.

Useful facts about Holland Park:
Holland Park is a district and a public park in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, in western central London. Holland Park has a reputation as an affluent and fashionable area, known for attractive large Victorian townhouses, and high-class shopping and restaurants. There are many popular shopping destinations located around Holland Park such as High Street Kensington, Notting Hill, Holland Park Avenue, Portobello Market, Westbourne Grove, Clarendon Cross and Ledbury Road.
Holland Park is about 22 hectares (54 acres) in area and is considered one of the most romantic and peaceful parks of West London. The northern half or so of the park is semi-wild woodland, the central section around the ruins of Holland House is more formal with several garden areas, and the southernmost section is used for sport. Holland House is now a fragmentary ruin, having been devastated by incendiary bombing in 1940, but the ruins and the grounds were bought by London County Council in 1952 from the last private owner, the 6th Earl of Ilchester.
The district was rural until the 19th century. Most of it was formerly the grounds of a Jacobean mansion called Holland House. In the later decades of that century the owners of the house sold off the more outlying parts of its grounds for residential development, and the district which evolved took its name from the house. It also included some small areas around the fringes which had never been part of the grounds of Holland House, notably the Phillimore Estate (there are at least four roads with the word Phillimore in their name) and the Campden Hill Square area.
