Property description

Reece Mews is a quiet, traditional style Victorian cobbled street, tucked away off the Old Brompton Road in the ‘French Quarter’ of London right in the heart of South Kensington, famous for its French Lysee School and little Boulangerie style cafes. The Mews is famous for its classic car showrooms which still exist today. It is approximately 2 minutes walk from South Kensington Tube Station (Piccadilly direct from Heathrow Airport, Circle & District lines) which is also a transport hub for buses to all directions.

From the house you are within 15 minutes walk of Knightsbridge to the east, where you pass the flamboyant Italianate Brompton Oratory Church and you can shop at the world renowned store Harrods and lunch at Harvey Nicholls. Just beyond Knightsbridge is Buckingham Palace and Piccadilly.

A 15 minute walk going north will take you to Kensington Palace, the former home of Diana, Princess of Wales, where you can stroll in Kensington Palace Gardens and the wide open spaces of Hyde Park, or sample the delights of Kensington High Street. Kensington is famous for its Roof Top Garden Restaurant with its beautiful ‘garden in the sky’, Jazz Bar and Night Club all of which are on your door-step. A short bus ride up Kensington Church Street brings you to Nottinghill Gate, (made famous by Julia Roberts) with its weekend street market is perfect for antique hunters.

To the South of Reece Mews, a 15 minute walk will find you on the Old King’s Road, Chelsea, famous for its designer boutiques and Terence Conran’s Blue Bird Restaurant. A further 15 minutes walk beyond Old King’s Road and you reach the River Thames with its famous bridges and riverside walks.

If you are looking for culture, the house is within 2 minutes walk of London’s most famous museums: the Victoria & Albert Museum; Natural History Museum and the Science Museum. And you are a short walk from London’s Royal Albert Hall with its busy concert schedule, the Royal College of Art (famous for its student summer shows) and the Royal College of Music. Musicians from the Royal College of Music regularly perform lunchtime concerts in St. Mary’s Church, Kensington, so you can rest your feet and take in some culture between shopping sprees!

If you are looking for musical venues and Jazz in particular (being artists ourselves) we can direct you to all the best places and help you to plan your musical repertoire.

For the fitness conscious (or to work off the French style cuisine) there is a gym opposite the house (rates on application).

The house its self is a traditional Victorian style mews house over three floors (no elevator!) with the living room and kitchen on the top floor with double doors opening onto a narrow balcony with ornamental shrubs. The living room faces east and is lovely and bright, especially in the morning, when you can open the doors and take the air whilst drinking that first cup of coffee and enjoying a fresh croissant from the patisserie round the corner! There are double doors onto a narrow balcony which has several ornamental shrubs. A TV and DVD player is available along with phone (calls are extra) and internet access.

The eat-in kitchen is wonderfully light with plenty of windows and has all the modern facilities you would require to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. There is an electric oven with gas hob and extractor over, microwave, dishwasher and fridge and there is a table and chairs for dining. All crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils are included.

The house has been recently refurbished and redecorated so is in good repair with three bedrooms 2 x doubles with ensuite bath/shower rooms and 1 single with a separate shower across the landing. There is plenty of storage.

Sleeping accommodation at the house has been planned for maximum flexibility with a king-size zip & link bed in the master bedroom on the second floor, single bed with roll-out in the second bedroom (second floor) and a 6ft king-size (zip & link) bed in third bedroom on the ground floor. There are also two double sofa-beds in the living room. All bed linen and towels are included.

There is a washing machine and separate tumble drier in the ground floor shower room, additional washing can also be dried on racks. The house has gas central heating and under-floor heating in the ensuite bathroom to the master bedroom.

We provide a selection of videos, CDs and board games for your entertainment and we supply several ‘Oyster Cards’ for use by guests when traveling around the City. These cards ensure you get the cheapest fares when travelling on tube trains and buses and can be charged, or topped-up, at any tube station using a credit card. We just ask that you leave the Oyster cards for the next guests at the end of your stay.

We are certain you will enjoy your stay in the heart of South Kensington and we will be delighted to help you make the most of your time in London.
