Property description

Our beautiful flat is in a fantastic neighbourhood. It’s just 5 minutes walk from Queens Park tube which goes direct to Paddington, Baker Street, Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus. Brondesbury Park tube is also about 5 minutes walk for easy East/West access to Hampstead, Richmond and the Olympic park area.
The bright spacious flat on the top (2nd floor) of a 19th Century house has a very spacious kitchen/dining room and a large separate sitting room. It’s tastefully furnished with an Ercol dining table and chairs, comfortable sofas and great pictures. But it also has mod cons such as fast Wi-fi, a 40in Sony Bravia TV & DVD , a Sony hi-fi and Neff appliances. There’s also a sunny, enclosed private garden which is a great place to sit out on a summer evening.
The flat comfortably sleeps 6 people. There are 2 double bedrooms and one smaller bedroom with bunk beds. The larger double has a ziplink bed so can be separated into 2 single beds on request. The bunk beds are full width and 6 feet long so will accommodate most adults comfortably. But for maximum flexibility the sitting room (next to the small bedroom) has a queen-sized double sofa bed.
Queens Park is a lively middle class neighbourhood popular with media people - the BBC is nearby, and has many excellent shops, restaurants and cafes within a couple of minutes’ walk. These include the Salusbury Tavern gastropub, Gails Artisan bakery, Penks Restaurant, a Sainsburys local supermarket (less than 100 metres) and a Farmers Market selling organic and local produce.
Queens Park itself is close by with tennis courts, a pétanque area, pitch and putt golf, an excellent cafe with outside tables, a playground for children under 12, a paddling pool, a huge sandpit area for toddlers and a children's animal zoo. Portobello Road in Notting Hill with its excellent shops, market and cafes is also walking distance.
The flat is very quick to get to from all London airports and from St Pancras International. Or if you prefer to drive parking vouchers are available for a nominal charge which allow you to park outside the flat.
From Heathrow airport; Get the Heathrow express to Paddington then get the Bakerloo line northbound a few stops to Queens Park. A black cab from Paddington to Queens Park costs £8-£15
From St Pancras International
Get the Northern line north bound one stop to Euston station (or this is about 7 minutes walk). Then get the overground from Euston direct to Queens Park. Or get a black cab from St Pancras to Queens Park for about £12-£18.
From Gatwick airport
Get the Gatwick Express to Victoria and then the tube (Victoria line Northbound for 2 stops to Oxford Circus then change to the Bakerloo northbound to Queens Park. Or get a black cab for approx £15-£20.

Other Amenities

  • Ever stayed in a holiday house where the kitchen was equipped with all the broken or worn out stuff from the owners house? Well we have so we have made sure the kitchen is really well equipped with high quality Stella pots and pans, white un-chipped china, proper sharp knives and a full range of other kitchen accessories and utensils. In fact when we stay here ourselves our kids complain that everything is much nicer than what we have at home. We've also supplied high quality Sony audiovisual equipment: 40 in Sony LCD TV, a Sony mini hi-fi digital radio & ipod player and Sony clock/radios for all the bedrooms. Parking vouchers are available at a cost of 1.2 euros per day (cost price) & enable you to park right outside the flat. We permit smokers to stay but no smoking is allowed in the house. However you can smoke in the garden. There is an extra 'higher' chair in the kitchen for toddlers and children under 10....moreless

'Queens Park is a lively neighbourhood popular with media people (the BBC is nearby) and with quite a smattering of celebs too. You may run into Jade Jagger or Thandie Newton walking her dog in the local park. Queens park tube is just five minutes and takes just 15 minutes to the West End to visit the major London attractions.The excellent shops and restaurants within a couple of minutes walk of the house include the Salusbury Tavern gastropub, Gails Artisan bakery, Penks Restaurant, a Sainsburys and a Farmers Market (selling organic and local produce) held every Sunday morning. Queens Park itself is also just a couple of hundred metres away with tennis courts, an ornamental garden, a pétanque area, a pitch and putt golf course, an excellent cafe with outside tables, a playground for children under 12, a paddling pool, a huge sandpit area for toddlers and a children's animal zoo. A little further on Portobello Road in Notting Hill with its market and shops is within walking distance

Other Activities: indoor rock cliimbing, pottery decorating

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: I currently live in Devon in the South West of the UK and run a small holiday cottage agency called West Country Lets, specialising in hand-picked holiday cottages in Devon and the South West.

Why Westminster:
We decided to move out of London after 20 years living in the area. However moving out of London is well-known as a one way ticket because house prices in London historically go up faster than elsewhere. So we decided to buy a flat and made sure we bought one where we'd love to live ourselves in case we decide to move back to London in the future.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
It's a cliche but location, location, location is why we bought this flat. It's just a great neighbourhood with fantastic shops, cafes and restaurants that's also within very easy reach of the West End. However what clinched it was the flat's spacious reception rooms, bright light rooms and sunny garden area. We also knew the people who lived in the flat before.
