Kensington & Chelsea house description

A modern home situated between Holland Park and Kensington, this unique property has to be seen to be believed. It is located within walking distance of Westfield Shopping Centre and a short bus or tube ride from many of London's top attractions, and comfortably sleeps 11 guests.

With a gate from the street into the front garden, the property has excellent privacy and is very quiet. The front of the house has a substantial glass window stretching the height of two floors and walking up the steps to the grand, pillared front door gives you a real sense of the size of this renovated Victorian townhouse.

As you enter the house, you are welcomed into a comfortable and spacious sitting room with lots of comfortable seating and a large TV and DVD collection. At one end sits a baby grand piano for all budding musicians. At the other end is an interesting library and desk which could prove useful for any guests who may be working when in London. The walls are decorated beautifully and there are wooden floors throughout.

Looking down over the indoor balcony next to the large front window, the front of the kitchen can be seen with a small living area and additional television. The large bright basement kitchen is accessed down a staircase to the right of the main living area and is flooded with natural light.

The modern kitchen is illuminated by large windows at either end, has two sinks and a large amount of surface space, separate laundry room and extra WC. The large oval dining table will comfortably seat all guests with a couch to relax on after dinner.

From the ground floor, the main staircase (with motion activated footlights) leads up to the master suite with separate his and hers bath and walk-in shower rooms. The spacious bedroom has a king-size bed, couch and television.

The third floor is essentially a dedicated children's floor. The three rooms are decorated with ornate wooden beds (all singles) and one with a beautiful free standing wardrobe. All of these rooms come with cupboard space and have one beautifully tiled separate bath and shower room with two sinks at the end of the landing to share.

The top floor of the house could be a self contained flat, perfect for a nanny joining a family during their stay. There is a double room on the right with wardrobe space, a kitchen area and a TV. Beside this room there is a bathroom. The spacious room to the left of this is currently used as a study and also contains a double bed and bookshelves with an en suite shower room with two sinks.

The property is located in Brook Green, Kensington - a vibrant, artistic and multi-cultural area of West London, and very close to Holland Park. There's an array of cafes, restaurants and pubs within walking distance and London's largest shopping mall - Westfield - is also just a 10 minute walk, or a short bus ride. Here you can find a mix of high-street and designer shops, restaurants and a cinema.

High Street Kensington, with its boutiques, cafes, restaurants, supermarkets (including a brilliant Wholefoods) and cinemas is just a 10 minute walk to the south.

You can walk to Shepherd's Bush Market station (Hammersmith & City lines) in 10 minutes or reach Shepherd's Bush (Central line and Overground) within a few minutes by bus or 10 minutes by foot. A little further away is Notting Hill, full of boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Here you'll find the famous Portobello Markets.

For access to Oxford Street, take the tube from Shepherd's Bush and you'll be there in 16 minutes. These transport links are excellent and mean a door-to-door trip to Bond Street/Oxford Street takes just 20-25 minutes. The museum district of South Kensington is just 20 minutes away on the tube from Shepherd's Bush (Central Line to Notting Hill Gate and Circle Line to South Kensington).

The focus of this exclusive area is Kensington High Street with its array of upmarket boutiques and luxury shops as well as high street shops, cafes and restaurants. The streets of elegant townhouses, often with white pillared fronts, are classically British and familiar to many as an emblem of prosperity. Behind these immaculate doors are spacious homes, with room for all the family.

Kensington borders Hyde Park - one of the largest parks in central London and a great day out – as well as Kensington Gardens and Kensington Palace where Princess Diana once lived. Holland Park, just West of Kensington High Street, is handy for a walk with the kids, or if you’re looking for an urban retreat to unwind, there are many high end spas and salons to visit.

The second hub of activity is in South Kensington, which has a tube station and a decent selection of pubs, wine bars and eateries. This area plays host to many museums and venues, notably the Royal Albert Hall, the Natural History Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Many consider this the ideal destination for a family vacation to London because of the safe, quiet streets and numerous activities available close to the city centre.
