Property description

Welcome to our mews house, a beautiful architect designed family home in Notting Hill . This is very much a loved home full of character and interesting artifacts from around the world and is light, airy and comfortable. (The house has very high ceilings which is uncommon for a mews house) ,a newly refurbished property over three floors (2640 square feet) with all the facilities one could wish for.
The house is in a safe and quiet conservation area in a private, gated, cobbled mews, a convenient seven minute walk to the bustling Portobello Road where the famous Portobello Antiques Market takes place on Saturdays, the daily open air market where you can buy fresh flowers and food, and plenty of great restaurants and cafés.
Westfield shopping mall (Europe's largest) and Shepherd's Bush Central Line station is 5 minutes away. Latimer road underground station is a 3 minute walk and Ladbroke Grove Underground station is only 5 minutes walk, and there’s a frequent bus service within a 2 minute walk that takes you to Oxford Street and the West End, (London’s theater district). Of course, we have a local taxi company that can take you anywhere at the drop of a hat!
A nearby bus service will take you to the famous City of Oxford in only one hour.

The ground floor level of the house has an oak-floored open living, dining and kitchen space with a Pantry and Utility / Laundry room. Under-floor heating throughout and a wood burning stove make it warm and inviting.
It has a well-equipped hi spec kitchen with a professional range cooker, American style fridge/freezer (with ice maker) and separate wine fridge. The double height dining area has a long glass topped contemporary table with Charles Eames dining chairs and an open wood burning fireplace. There are also 2 Stokke highchairs should you require them, (We have a baby set for one of them).

The bed configuration is as follows:

On the first floor, (floor above ground) we have:
Bedroom 1: Full size single beds with a single pull out underneath (3 singles in total, 36 in × 75 in / 91 cm × 190 cm). (Sleeps 3)
Bedroom 2: Kingsize bedroom (60 in × 78 in / 150 cm × 200 cm) (sleeps 2)
On the same floor we then have an upstairs sitting / tv room with a double sofa bed, (54 in × 75 in / 140 cm × 190 cm). (Sleeps 2)
On the second floor:
Bedroom 3: Single (36 in × 75 in / 91 cm × 190 cm) that converts to a Kingsize (60 in × 78 in150 cm × 200 cm) (sleeps 2)
Master suite: Master suite with Kingsize bed (60 in × 78 in / 150cms x 200cms). Sleeps 2)

We also have a folding guest bed that would be suitable for a child/ teenager and could be put in any of the bedrooms.
Floor by floor:
The first floor has two bedrooms, (one with a King-size bed and the other with twin beds and a pull out bed underneath, a beautiful spacious bathroom (a “wet room” with under-floor heating, an amazing rain shower and a beautiful roll top bath), a further Bedroom / TV room with double sofa bed, with satellite TV and a DVD, (with an extensive collection of DVD’s for those “stay at home” days when you’re walked off your feet) and of course WiFi.

The second floor comprises a master suite with a King-size bed, en suite bathroom, (also a “wet room” with under-floor heating, powerful shower, roll top bath), a dressing room and a further bedroom with a single bed that converts into a Kingsize bed and also a Stokke crib / cot if required.
The house is incredibly child friendly, we know how difficult it is to travel with children and slip quickly into a routine when you arrive somewhere new! We have plenty of books and toys and there are stair-gates and baby monitors in the bedrooms should you require them. If you're travelling with children you won't need to bring a thing other than their favourite snuggly!
Towels and linen are included. The house is beautifully cleaned before each rental. Additional linen is available by arrangement and maid service during the rental period can be provided at guests' own cost for a modest fee. Our housekeeper lives round the corner and is on hand to deal with any emergencies as am I.
We can also provide you with a reliable babysitting service if desired, many of our guests make use of this and have been delighted with the sitters.
We provide a house file filled with useful information so you can quickly get to grips with where everything is, not only in the house but our preferred restaurants and services in the area. There are also plenty of travel guide books.

The accommodation is enormously flexible. As there are bedrooms on all floors, guests can base themselves in separate areas (if 2 families are travelling together for instance). The beds are of very high quality, and so are the showers: guests often write appreciative notes about these. All the bedrooms are quietly appointed, so there should be little to disturb your sleep.

The house is a beautiful, practical and peaceful place to escape and enjoy London's hustle and bustle, our guests have told us that they enjoyed ' the luxury of a hotel whilst feeling a part of London life.'
I offer a personalised service and am on hand to offer advice whenever needed. This isn't a soulless holiday rental, this is a family home which will become your home from home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a freelance cinematographer and live in London with my partner and two young children, (5 and 7 years).

Why the Owner Chose Kensington & Chelsea:
I have lived in this area for 20 years and never get tired of what it has to offer. The local amenities around Portobello are exceptional, the restaurants extremely good and varied , (we have The Ledbury a Michelin 2* restaurant just up the road), the public transport links (bus and underground train) are nearby and frequent and the area is very safe.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our property is in popular Notting Hill, a bustling and vibrant location with theaters, museums and restaurants within easy reach. The spacious and well equipped house is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a hard days exploring, it's secure, cozy, and the house is south - facing making it light and airy. A table and chairs on the cobbled, gated private road outside means you can while away the summer evenings outside watching the children play, glass of wine in hand. We also have a barbeque. A real home from home.
