Property description

Apartment is located above a Security Showroom directly across from St. Mary's Hospital (where Prince George was recently born!) and only a one minute walk from Paddington Station.

There are several flights of stairs to climb after entering through the front door so access to disabled or elderly may be limited.

Upon entering the apartment you will be greeted by the tiled terracotta floors, huge skylight and exposed brick wall of the living/dining room. A compact, but well equipped kitchen also awaits you. This has recently been renovated.
There is also a small rooftop patio for barbequing or sunbathing (weather permitting). SMOKING is confined to this area!

Also on the first floor of the maisonette is a bathroom with shower and a large bedroom comprising 4 single beds. Of special interest is the ornate gas fireplace. The large picture windows look out onto busy, cosmopolitan Praed Street.

Up one flight of stairs you will find three additional bedrooms, the bathroom and a utility closet, where washer and dryer are located. Two of the bedrooms are medium sized and furnished with double beds, while the third is much smaller and features bunk beds. Most bedrooms are provided with clock radios and hairdryers. Floors on the upper level are hardwood except for the bathroom which features black and white tiling.

Recessed lighting is featured throughout the apartment. There is central heating but no air conditioning although in the case of a heat wave we will provide fans.

Our housekeeper, Maria S., is available on request for extra cleaning (at your own expense). She lives very nearby so can be called if any problems should arise.

If you are part of a large group you can also rent our next door property which has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and can accommodate up to 8 persons.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1946

About the owner: The property has been in our family for over 60 years. My father started the business on the ground floor as a bicycle (and scooter) repair shop. He later expanded into cutting keys and eventually into a fully fledged locksmith firm. Today my 3 brothers and one sister continue the tradition! My role, since my older brother and his family moved out, is to keep the upstairs flats rented out as frequently as possible. The family is of Italian/Irish/Scottish decent. (We also have a property in Barga, Tuscany (Italy) listed with VRBO.

Why the Owner Chose Westminster:
Its proximity to many London sights and the easy access from Heathrow makes the location an ideal one!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The fact that there is almost always someone in the downstairs Security Showroom whom you can go to with problems and/or queries is definetely a bonus!
