Kensington & Chelsea apartment description

Spectacular sun-filled south-facing luxury canal-side triplex overlooking Notting Hill and far beyond which includes a wonderful, 20-foot-high, penthouse loft with floating bedroom platform. Owned and built by a Scandinavian designer, this ultra-stylish but quiet and very cozy and romantic apartment has been crafted with wit and love and has never previously been rented except for the occasional fashion shoot. Sleeping up to eight persons, the apartment has great transport links, free wifi and unlimited telephone calls to the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom.

A private entrance and mural-decorated staircase leads up to the higher floors of a red brick Victorian house. On the lower floor there is one bedroom with its own south-facing balcony overlooking the canal and Meanwhile Gardens (a small nature reserve), a master bedroom with en suite bathroom and another bathroom. Both bathrooms have showers and jetted tubs.

Continuing up a further short flight of stairs, you emerge firstly into the fully-fitted kitchen with another balcony and a wonderfully positioned breakfast table from where you can lazily sip your coffee and enjoy the south-facing view over Notting Hill and the magnificent London skyline. Turn another corner and you are in the triplex's huge double-leveled penthouse loft with twin fireplaces. Seeing is believing. Part of it leads up to the roof terrace which is well lit and fitted with outdoor heater (for al fresco night-time winter reading ?).

A further part leads up to the gravity-defying floating bed and study in the attic space, from where you can laze and gaze forever, over your friends downstairs or the birds and boats on the canal, or just out over the amazing view. All nine windows are fitted with blinds, but seem to be rarely used. We wonder not why.

The house is located on a quiet Victorian street, some of whose houses, almost in secret back, onto the Grand Union canal. It is perfectly positioned for explorations all over the capital. A delightful short stroll along the canal takes you to the quaint café’s, antique and junk shops and market of the Golborne Road and Portobello Road that leads you in turn to Notting Hill.

A few minutes further in the opposite direction lay the broad avenues of Little Venice and Maida Vale with their own array of chic boutiques and restaurants. The nearest Underground Station is just three minutes away and a wide range of buses stop literally around the corner.

A five minute bus trip will get you to Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, and a fifteen minute one to either the theatres of the West End or to Camden Market, arguably the only genuine competitor to Portobello road for multi-cultural people-watching and wild street fashion.

Paddington station, two stops by tube or a few minutes by taxi has the non-stop Heathrow Express which takes twenty minutes to get to any terminal. By arrangement ‘a mini-cab’ can be sent to meet you at any of London’s four airports.

Payment may be made by credit card via Paypal, checks drawn on US or UK banks or wire transfer.

Please note that smoking is only allowed on the balconies and roof terrace. Please also note that the apartment is not suitable for unsupervised children. Many of the railings have been removed for ascetic pleasure, rather than for safety, and the possibility of a dangerous fall will always exist for the ill-balanced or drunk !
