About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

This Grand old house stands a landmark building in the Kensal Green Conservation area of Queens Park.

Eclectically and exquisitely decorated, its antique and contemporary furnishings plus modern amenities stylishly combine the 19th and 21st century making the Georgian House uniquely suited to the traditionalist and modernist in us all.

It is the quintessence of a laid-back private residence with the unique atmosphere of a bygone era. With its private courtyard access and secluded terrace the Georgian house is truly a rare London find.

Offering space and contemporary design with all the comforts of home, the Georgian house is the perfect base from which to live, relax, entertain and explore, with the freedom to come and go as you please.

Walk to the World famous Portobello market, drink mint tea in the Moroccan tea shops of Golbourne Road, feast on the retail and gourmet extravaganza that is Notting Hill, then meander home along the sweeping curves of the Grand Union Canal just in time for tea.

Its central location makes accessing any of London’s box of delights quick and painless. In London transports Zone 2, British rail and London Underground stations are three minutes walk from your door with the high-speed Heathrow Express close by.

The Georgian House - your eye in the storm.

About The Owner

Laura and David fell in love with the Georgian House on their return from leading a care free existence in Australia for 2 years. They have been loving restoring the exterior of the house using traditional methods, whilst working full time - Laura is a Consultant in Neurodevelopmental Paediatrics and David does high flying things in the IT world- plus bringing up their twins Evie & grace and now little Alfie.

They are delighted to welcome guests to come and enjoy an exclusive and dedicated part of this magnificent house - and - love sharing their knowledge of all things London regardless of subject !!. Laura is a self confessed London addict and says - 'once you have London in your soul -you can never give it up ! - there is no greater a city !'

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2005

Why The Owner chose Queen's Park

We simply love this vibrant and diverse area of London - there is so much to do, see and experience Plus we have a simply fabulous house of great character and charm

Guestbook comments from the owner


It was a great pleasure and indeed we enjoyed our short stay of 7 days at your lovely Georgian house. You both have supported us as and when required. Thanks for everything and especially thanks for organizing taxi for us , both times. Both the taxi drivers were nice.

Give my regards to Mr.David and thank him for all the help.

A delightful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Staying in Laura's apartment was like a home away from home. Our family of three were very comfortable and enjoyed the many quality furnishings and the beautfiul daylight that came through the upstairs living area. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful hamper Laura provided for us on arrival. Access to the apartment is independent and private, yet Laura is available and close by should anything be needed, including valuable local knowledge. Public transport is very convenient to the apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in London and staying at Laura's.

Great Holiday Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this property over last Christmas holidays (afraid I am way late with this review). Everything was great, the owners are gracious and helpful, and the location, while not close in to Central London, had easy access by bus, tube or Uber to most everything. The neighborhood is not upscale but we liked it. We highly recommend, and particularly suggest it for a great Christmas stay.

What a wonderfully beautiful apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow the apartment really exceeded our expectations, my husband, 17 yr old son & myself spend 3 nights here in London. Perfect location with train & bus service very close. The interior was modern & very comfortable, the hosts Laura & David where exceptional with advice on what was worth doing & seeing, even had a gift basket with lots of goodies including wine & chocolates. I would most definitely stay again.

Map Location is Wrong

  • 5 of 5

I haven't stayed here but through my research for my parents (who need a place right on Queen's Park, as per the map), the actual location of this apartment is actually near Kensal Green tube, not on the east side of the park. Just one to be aware of.

Very elegant and a delightful place to stay in London

  • 5 of 5

This is a seriously beautiful apartment and very convenient location in London. We just loved it and can't recommend it highly enough. Bright and airy thanks to high ceilings upstairs, compact downstairs and tastefully furnished. Kensal green tube station a short walk away, on the Bakerloo line, the most convenient for so many top London attractions. Thanks Laura for providing such a lovely place to stay.
