Kensington & Chelsea apartment description

This is a great flat to visit London from! Just out of central London, still in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea it is located 2 streets from the northern end of the Portobello Road with all its restaurants, coffee bars, interesting shops and market. This is a very eclectic part of London with longstanding local Spanish, Moroccan and Portuguese communities sharing the local facilities with top designers Stella McCartney and Julian Macdonald who both have their design studios nearby. Our current Prime Minister, David Cameron’s family home is just 3 streets away.

This is a big flat, which occupies the upper half of a large town house in Notting Hill, and is spread over 3 floors –quite a lot of stairs! Once you have negotiated the stairs up to the first floor, cross the hallway and you are immediately into the huge, high ceilinged, light filled dining room, kitchen and through sitting room with TV, videos and books. Big sash windows look out over the square. On this floor are a small office, a loo with a view and a fully equipped utility room. A wide staircase takes you up to the next floor with 2 double bedrooms and a very small cot or suitcase room, and bathroom with power shower, whilst the 4th bedroom is up another shorter staircase and comes with a prize for climbing all those stairs - its own en-suite bathroom. The through sitting room on the first floor has a very comfortable double sofa bed and a curtain separates it from the dining room to make a fourth bedroom for large parties and there is another pull out bed in one of the bedrooms on the second floor.

Because it is on a south-facing corner, the flat is very light filled and warm. I have lived here very happily for 15 years and hope to continue doing so but at the moment am taking some time in the country to study ceramics, hence its availability. I have left it comfortably furnished for you; new bed linen and towels, books, DVDs, TV.

Please do take note of the number of stairs. There are stair rails on all but small children who may be unfamiliar with the danger of staircases do need to be supervised.

Local food shopping facilities are good. Apart from the vegetable stalls on the Portobello and Golborne Roads, there is a small supermarket on the way to the underground station, and a huge one a 5-minute walk or bus trip away. (walk there, bus or taxi back with the shopping!)

Excellent transport links make it easy to get into the centre of London; the underground is a 3minute walk away with trains direct to Paddington Station where the Heathrow Express goes direct to Heathrow airport. Frequent buses from Ladbroke Grove go direct to Oxford Street and the British Museum; Piccadilly; Knightsbridge and the museums of South Kensington, (V&A, Science Museum and the Natural History Museums), Kensington Palace and the Royal Parks of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, St Paul’s Cathedral; the City of London, Tate Modern, Trafalgar Square.

There are excellent bus and underground links with Paddington Station and Victoria Station; from here fast trains go direct to Heathrow and Gatwick airports. Also nearby is the Westfield London shopping complex (2 stops on the underground or a short bus ride) with 250 shops under one roof, cinema complex, bars etc.

Thank you very much for your interest. I wish all who stay here a really fabulous time!

    Portobello Road View on map

    Portobello Market in West London is one of the most famous street markets in the world. It is a populart destination for Londoners and tourists alike. Portobello Road goes straight through the heart of Notting Hill, the trendy area of London made famous by the film. Indeed, so famous is the film Notting Hill that I find scarcely a week goes by without someone or other asking me about the various set locations: the blue door, the travel bookshop, the garden fence and so on.

  • B

    St Marks Road Park View on map

    A wonderful park with a recently added �3/4 million adventure play area and supervised water park for the kids to cool down in the warm weather... And a coffee stall for the parents.


Car: Not Necessary

The beautiful Kensington Memorial Park off St Marks Road is 10 minutes walk from the property, a great place to go for a quiet walk and for the kids to run free (3 very modern adventure play areas).
