Property description

Historical character

The beat of Bayswater’s heart has been captured in many works of fiction, and is here for you to experience firsthand at Porchester Square 2. Sat alluringly inside the border of Bayswater, close to fashionable Westbourne Grove, this stylish and contemporary one bedroom home- set in a beautiful Edwardian terrace townhouse- is stunning, inside and out. From the terrace, glass of wine in hand, look over the pretty square below, where the trees are filled with blossom. Imagine, perhaps, Alexander Fleming or Winston Churchill walking by, and steep yourself in the history and character of Bayswater.

Smiley’s people

Your hosts hail from the Cotswolds and split their time between their country pad and this, their pied-a-terre. A successful pair, they juggle a business each, as well as two almost-grown-up children. They also unquestioningly possess impeccable taste, as you’ll see in the carefully chosen artwork and design classics dotted about Porchester Square 2.

The importance of being earnest

High ceilings, huge windows and period features mix with stylish contemporary furniture to engage every sense, as you tread the wooden floors of Porchester Square 2. Splashes of colour capture the eye as you pause to appreciate the artwork, the ghost chairs around the dining table, or the vibrant cushions on the comfortable sofas. The spacious kitchen is open on to the room, with sleek surfaces lit by achingly cool low-lying light fittings. Whip up a feast while chatting to your guests, or curl up with a good book and a glass of wine, and while away an afternoon.

At the end of the evening, soak up our White Company bubbles in the bathroom, with its sleek and stylish contemporary fixtures, before heading off to the land of nod in the elegantly styled double bedroom with its striking headboard and mirrored wardrobes, or the sofabed next door.

Bayswater in bloom

The diversity of the restaurants on Westbourne Grove will cater for every taste, and there are lively pubs a-plenty in Westbourne Park. Whiteleys department store is close at hand if you fancy a spot of shopping, or for more sedate pleasures, take a stroll and picnic beside the Serpentine. Catch a bus to buzzing Notting Hill with its plethora of bars, cafes and restaurants, while the Sunday art show along Bayswater Road is a must. There are no less than three tube stations within easy reach, making the journey to Central London a breeze, and Oxford Circus reachable in under 30 minutes

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.
