Beautifully decorated and quintessentially British, this lower ground floor apartment is the perfect haven after a long day out exploring the Capital's charms.
As you approach the property you are struck by the grandeur of the building, very much in keeping with the area and the peaceful road on which it is located.

On entering you will feel immediately at home as you enter the hallway which leads into a large drawing room with its wooden floors, antiques and classic artwork decorating the walls. The drawing room especially is very generous in size and is decorated to enhance comfort and luxury with its antique rug and dinner table which comfortably seats up to eight. The long galley-style kitchen is located at the front of the apartment, down a couple of steps, and is ideally equipped with all the modern amenities you might need to prepare meals at home.
Leading through from the study area you find yourself by both well sized double bedrooms, one of which is en suite. The bedrooms, like the rest of the property are decorated with paintings and antique furniture. Leading out of the master bedroom is an outside patio area which is private and secure. The last bedroom is a comfortably sized single and also has its own en suite. Upon request, an additional single mattress can be set up for a child. With 3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms and a further cloakroom, this property is ideal for both families and couples alike.
The location of this stylish home is in the much coveted borough of Kensington and Chelsea, less than a 5 minute walk from South Kensington and a 10 minute walk from the world renowned King's Road with its plethora of high-end boutiques and fashionable places to eat out. Another short 10 minute walk would bring you to the one and only Harrods department store, which of course is not to be missed! The Museums of South Kensington (Victoria & Albert, Natural History and Science Museum) are right on your doorstep and a few minutes' walk away. You'll reach Hyde Park in around 10 minutes.
For travelling further afield, South Kensington (on Piccadilly, District & Circle lines) is just a 5 minute walk and you'll reach Covent Garden, Soho and Notting Hill in about 10 minutes on the tube.
Area Description: "The focus of this exclusive area is Kensington High Street with its array of upmarket boutiques and luxury shops as well as high street shops, cafes and restaurants. The streets of elegant townhouses, often with white pillared fronts, are classically British and familiar to many as an emblem of prosperity. Behind these immaculate doors are spacious homes, with room for all the family.
Kensington borders Hyde Park - one of the largest parks in central London and a great day out as well as Kensington Gardens and Kensington Palace where Princess Diana once lived. Holland Park, just West of Kensington High Street, is handy for a walk with the kids, or if you're looking for an urban retreat to unwind, there are many high end spas and salons to visit.
The second hub of activity is in South Kensington, which has a tube station and a decent selection of pubs, wine bars and eateries. This area plays host to many museums and venues, notably the Royal Albert Hall, the Natural History Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Many consider this the ideal destination for a family vacation to London because of the safe, quiet streets and numerous activities available close to the city centre."
