                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: As an interior designer, I am driven to make my home beautiful and comfortable. I love traveling and love to discover new ideas and get inspirations and experience other culture. After living in 5 different countries for 12 years, I was so tired of moving around. I decided to settle in London, in 2010 I bought this apartment which was in very bad condition, I filled up with my beloved furniture, beautiful decoration collected around the world. Then after only 3 months living in this loving home,I meet the man of my life, he was very impressed with my beautiful and cozy home, but at the end insist that I moved to his house in the countryside to start our new family together. Truly hope you find your comfort and love in this beautiful home.

                      Why the Owner Chose Kensington & Chelsea:
                      Centre located in a quiet residential and historic street, with great characters Victoria Apartment, excellent decoration plus super comfortable beds, and spacious bright and brand new kitchen and open living, new and very clean bathrooms.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      A lot space for centre London, and having your own way of living at a wonderful apartment without paying huge hotel bills. I do find quite annoying that I need to buy all the things that I only need small amount, such as salt, peppers, sugar, washing power/liquid, dishwasher tablets, etc when I stayed at holiday rental homes, hence here I stock all this necessary and basic items for the easy and comfortable stay. A holiday is we pay for a happy time, comfortable beds with quality beds linens, and the powerful hair dryer for ladies make everything so different. I do my best to make you feel it is worth the experience and worth the money you pay for.
