Property description

Ilchester Place is wonderfully situated between Holland Park and High Street Kensington. As well as the excellent shopping and a wide selection of restaurants on and around the High Street, our apartment has the added advantage of overlooking Holland Park Gardens, considered to be one of London’s most beautiful and romantic parks, an oasis of green with specimen trees and lovely shrubs. There is also a cricket field and tennis courts. Holland Park has a reputation as an affluent and fashionable area, known for attractive terraces of large Victorian townhouses of which Richard Branson owns one!

Our flat is on the 5th floor with a lift, and the whole flat has a light and comfortable feel, and is in excellent decorative order throughout. The spacious and nicely furnished living room covers the length of the flat with windows at both ends overlooking trees, the tennis courts and cricket field. At one end of the room there is a sofa, two armchairs, coffee table, desk and a Digital Free View TV with a Virgin Box, at the other is a rectangular dining table and seating for eight at one end of the room. WiFi is available.

Next door is the kitchen with electric cooker, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher and microwave. There is also a small breakfast table with three stools.

In the master bedroom the twin beds are made up as a king double (they are zip/link). Dressing table and built-in wardrobes. The 2nd bedroom is small and has full size single trundle beds (i.e. the 2nd bed sits below the main one and can be pulled out for a 4th person). Built in wardrobes and a desk.

The tiled bathroom, off the hallway, has a power shower into the bath, plus a hand basin and toilet. Next door is a separate cloakroom with a hand basin and toilet.

This apartment offers a great location with Holland Park for those relaxing moments and High Street Kensington for your retail therapy, good transportation to some of the Museums and Art Galleries, and all on your doorstep.
