Kensington & Chelsea house description

Anyone who has stayed in London knows that two of the most popular neighborhoods to stay in are Notting Hill and Kensington. This darling mews house is located in Kensington -- a short walk to Princess Diana's Palace. You're a few blocks from Notting Hill, made famous by the movie of the same name, starring Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant.

Find yourself surrounded by trendy restaurants, brasseries, cafe's, shops, antique stores and fashion boutiques. Excellent supermarkets including a Whole Foods on High Street Kensington. Enjoy the famous Portobello Antiques Market takes place on Saturday mornings.

The location is just off Hornton Street in Kensington, in a charming Victorian mews. In olden days, the mews were the small streets behind the grand Victorian homes where the horses and carriages lived ... and they have all been converted into beautiful and popular homes. The neighborhood is secure and the Mews is exceptionally quiet for a good night's sleep.

Open the door to a small entryway painted in royal blue. Just beyond is the dining room with custom-made table to seat 6. Four pale blue dining chairs surround it in the photo below. There are 2 more chairs in the utility room behind.

On your right is the living room. The living room has a comfortable long sofa and cozy armchair, all beautifully upholstered and very comfortable. The quality of the furnishings is immediately apparent. There is a fireplace on the left and flat screen TV on the wall. Stereo and even ipod speakers complete the setting. This is a perfect room to relax in at the end of the day.

To the left of the dining room is the large kitchen; recently remodeled with cherry cabinets and dark granite counter top. Find every appliance from large frig/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and convection oven. The kitchen is fully stocked with stoneware dishes, pots and pans and serving dishes. You can definitely entertain here.

Back to the dining room and you'll find the utility room behind, with separate washer and dryer, second refrigerator freezer and good storage.

Next, take the stairs to the first floor (2nd floor American). Immediately on your right is the first bathroom, decorated in pretty French blue. Find a sink, bathtub/shower combination and toilet in fine working order. The house was remodeled to high standards as is evident in each room.

Next to the bathroom is bedroom 3, a charming room with two single beds decorated in Provencal style. Beautiful headboards and drapes complete the look in this pretty room.

Bedroom 2 follows down the corridor, with double bed, dresser and closet. We love the color choices and quality finish throughout the house. You'll appreciate the beauty when you stay in this pretty blue and cream room.

At the end of the hall is the Master bedroom with en suite bathroom. The bedroom features a queen-sized bed with a green and beige color theme. Find long closets next to the bathroom, dresser and good lighting to read by.

In the bathroom you'll find a bathtub/shower combination, toilet and sink.

The house is one of the prettiest we've seen in London, but the real advantage is stepping outside each day. There are pastry shops, bakeries, supermarkets and fantastic restaurants a short walk away. You'll walk to Kensington Gardens and Princess Diana's Palace, to Museum Row, to the Royal Albert Hall for concerts. Hop on the tube to view more landmarks; you're not far away. You'll enjoying eating out daily or shopping for food and cooking at home.

We think you will have a delightful stay here!

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About: I'm American and was transferred to London over 20 years ago. Fell in love with London and the people. London is now home to myself and my family. We manage a select group of apartments in central London. They are perfectly located, beautifully furnished and offer all the comforts of home. Most importantly, they are centrally located: walking distance to landmarks, Museum Row, Kensington Palace where Diana lived and Hyde Park, where Peter Pan was written. They are an easy hop on the tube to the theatre district. Take the red London buses or tube to the major sites, from St. Paul's, to Big Ben, Westminster and more. When you reserve, we send a complete information pack about your apartment, the neighborhood and even recommended a trusted and reasonably driver to pick you up from the airport. We are there to welcome you and answer any questions you may have! Our guests love their stays and come back again to LondonPerfect or our Paris apartments at ParisPerfect!

                  Why Kensington & Chelsea:
                  It's in the center of London -- but you're on a quiet and charming little street. This is one of the most sought after areas of London for its prime location, surrounded by restaurants, fashion boutiques, antique shops and so much more!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Beautiful home, comfortable, very central, safe and convenient.
