Luxury 2 bedroom apartment in Kensington, classy feel and less than 10 minute walk to Hyde Park!
Beautifully finished 2 bedroom apartment which sits on the top floor in a prime street of white stucco houses, conveniently situated a few minutes from the tube stations of South Kensington and Gloucester Road and close to Hyde Park.
The open plan living and dining room is spacious and, with its large sash windows it is bright, benefitting from being at the top of the building. There is a huge L-shaped sofa, a round granite table big enough to seat six people comfortably, and a black coffee table with in-built champagne cooler!
The modern kitchen is fitted with all the amenities you'll need to dine in when not enjoying the fantastic selection of restaurants in the vicinity. These include microwave, oven, hobs and complete sets of cutlery, crockery and glasses.
The master bedroom has a king-sized bed (with comfortable memory foam mattress). Its sash windows, looking out to the back of the apartment offer, great views of the roof-tops and tree-tops in the surrounding area.
The second bedroom features a double bed, side table, complete with storage.
The bathroom offers a bath with fully functional shower unit as well as tiled under-floor heating and a heated towel rail.
The property is located on Queen's Gate, around a 5 minute walk to South Kensington or Gloucester Rd tube stations, which serve the District, Circle and Piccadilly lines giving very easy access to the rest of London. For example, from South Kensington station, the shops of Oxford Street are only 13 minutes away.
The heart of Chelsea and the trendy King's Road is a short bus ride away and the local area is served by many shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. Sloane Square is also very close by; 1 stop on the tube or approximately a 15 minute walk. For culture, the museums of South Kensington - Victoria and Albert, Natural History and Science are less than a 10 minute stroll. For green open space, Hyde Park is less than a 10 minute walk too.
Please note that the apartment sits within a beautiful Georgian building and you'll need to climb the stairs (no lift/elevator) all the way to the fourth/top floor). The owner is a lover of culture and prefers to spend his leisure time in the nearby cafes, museums and galleries. As such, there is no television. However, if you bring your laptop you'll be able to link up to the internet and enjoy his range of art-house DVDs.
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."
