Genteel reminder

The Victorians may have vanished, but tradition clings tightly to Kensington. And beyond the pillared porticos and storybook railings, you’ll find this Southwell Gardens. From its rose-flushed sofas to its retro typewriter, this home suggests the parlours of the past. Sheet music stands open at the piano, a gilded mirror crowns a period fireplace, and no classicist could hope for a finer view from the sash windows. Whether you turn to the museums for the past, or the boutiques for the present, here the future promises to be bright indeed.

History boy

A young entrepreneur, your host has dotted his home with the fruits of his travels. He’s a keen musician, but is never happier than on the laziest of Sunday mornings.

Day and age

Creamy walls frame the sitting room’s bookshelves and beckoning sofas, and there’s even a hippo or two hither and thither. As the musical head for the piano, those of a literary bent may prefer the living area’s well-stocked bookshelves and cabinets.

Memories can certainly be made in the sleek kitchen with its appealing breakfast bar, or gaze on the time-honoured view from the window. A guitar hangs from the wall of the elegant double bedroom, and a gentleman of any era would be happy to call it a day in the mild-mannered master.

Location

Introducing Kensington

Bearing the words Royal Borough as part of an area name means responsibilities, and Kensington upholds them all: tradition, magnificence and heritage.

This enclave in central/west London, centred round the shopping haven of Kensington High Street, has a cosmopolitan air but without the transience of Knightsbridge or parts of Belgravia – locals move here to stay, including a large French contingent.

This fosters both a community spirit and an appreciation of culture – it was not by accident that US organic superstore Whole Foods Market chose this as its premier spot to open in London back in 2006, recognising the promising mix of customers’ ability to spend and loving the good, organic life.

Local ladies might lunch at Clarke’s on Kensington Church Street, but mainly on the weekends, as they are too busy holding down positions in the City arts and world of professional charity in the weeks – inhabitants here might be affluent, but not indolent.

The move of the Terence Conran-founded Design Museum from edgy Shad Thames to the former Commonwealth Institute on Kensington High Street, scheduled to open in 2014, might have come as a surprise to some, but this might well be the perfect place for a grown-up design destination – local yet lively, touristy yet classy, and with a small-community spirit that’s lacking in smugness.

Bars

Concert hall

Manager info

About: onefinestay gives you the chance to stay in someone's place while they're out of town. You get to live their life for a few days and nights. Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room. And there's service to match. Nobody wants to be a tourist, so our homes come with recommendations from the people who live in them. For everything else, we're here 24/7.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room, with online payment and confirmation. You get the same attention to detail and personal service too. Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There’s a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities. Once we’ve helped you settle in, we’re just a call away, 24/7. If it’s something we can’t solve over the phone, we’ll pop over to lend a hand. And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them – places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
