Property description

Enjoy this luxurious, peaceful and safe apartment in an unbeatable prestigious central London location. There is a four night minimum stay requirement.

We have tried to be comprehensive in the Listing Description and other sections. Please read through the information carefully to find out if this flat is for you. We are confident that most, if not all of your questions will be addresssed in the information provided.

Our newly refurbished, luxury apartment couldn't be better located for London's West End shopping, theatres, restaurants and art galleries. W1 is London's most central West End post-code with everything you could wish for just a few moments walk away. With Oxford Street, Regent Street, Soho, Tottenham Court Road, Leicester Square and London’s theatre district just round the corner, this exceptional property is perfectly situated for you to get the most out of your London stay.

Have all the creature comforts and safety of home in this quiet, five star apartment whilst enjoying everything London life has to offer on your door step. Look out of huge Queen reception room and you will see the iconic BT Tower. With this as your landmark you will never get lost finding your way home from anywhere in central London. At the end of the road to the right is Oxford Street, shopping heaven, and to the left is the beautiful Regents Park. A better, more central and accessible London location is hard to imagine.

The apartment is situated on a quiet, one way, residential street running parallel to Great Portland Street with its wonderful eclectic mix of cafes, bars and restaurants. Oxford Circus is just five minutes walk away. For those who like to keep active there are numerous gyms and yoga studios just round the corner. Even Lord's Cricket Ground is within walking distance. This peaceful residential oasis sits right in the heart of everything London has to offer, yet remains wonderfully free from unwanted noise and late night revelers when you want to relax and sleep after a hard days sightseeing.

The Apartment

The apartment is located on the second floor of a Regency Mansion block within a historical conservation area of London's West End.

The property has been refurbished to a truly five star standard with a brand new designer kitchen, luxury pure wool carpets throughout, a handmade king size bed (US Queen)and fine 400 thread count linens. The hand picked pieces of designer furniture are both exquisite and comfortable.

The apartment has all new appliances such as microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer, single oven, gas hob, large fridge freezer and a Vita mix. Free high speed Wi Fi is available. UK Apple chargers for IPhone 4, IPad 2 and Macbook Pro laptops are also provided as well as a brand new, powerful hairdryer.

The bedroom houses a fabulous, hand made, UK king size bed (US Queen) with luxury 400 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and a top quality mattress for a wonderful nights sleep. Guest dressing gown, slippers and plenty of fluffy towels are provided along with a selection of luxury toiletries.

The bathroom, whilst compact, provides both a bath tub and a shower facility.

Due to the exceptionally high standard of accommodation it is only suitable for a maximum of two non smoking adult guests. It is a non smoking, no pet property. There is no elevator and there are four short flights of stairs up to the property from the communal entrance.

Location: London’s West End & Westminster

The apartment is located in Fitzrovia, in the heart of London’s West End. Once home to writers such as Virginia Woolf and George Bernard Shaw and more recently Lady Gaga, Madonna and Guy Ritchie. Numerous media companies and the headquarters of the BBC are based in the area, hence its vibrant, celebrity filled buzz.

Oxford Street (five minutes walk away) is the mecca of shopping in London. There are hundreds of stores running from Marble Arch to Tottenham Court Road with the most expensive found on New Bond Street, South Molton Street, Saville Row and Conduit Street.

London’s West End offers theatre, music, comedy bars and restaurants. Take a wander down Wardour Street, Dean Street, Shaftesbury Avenue and the Haymarket to experience the centre of nightlife in London.

Shoppers will also enjoy the Covent Garden markets and boutiques in Soho and Carnaby Street. For some true British style head to Liberty of London (about ten minutes walk from the flat), full of beautifully-designed goods housed in its original Tudor building. On Regent Street, you'll find Hamleys, which claims to have been the finest toy shop in the world for the last 250 years.

Westminster describes the area around the Palace of Westminster (also known as the Houses of Parliament) and is home to many of London’s prestigious monuments and attractions. Enjoy the Royal Parks; St James's Park, Green Park & Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, the home of the Queen and St James's Palace, situated in Pall Mall.

Attractions within walking distance of the flat include Buckingham Palace, The British Museum, The London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Leicester Square, Covent Garden, Soho, Oxford Street, Tottenham Court Road, Trafalgar Square, The National Gallery, The British Museum, Somerset House, the Royal Parks and Regents Park.

Transport
The apartment is so well located that you can walk to most of London's main attractions. If you find yourself getting weary simply jump into a London Black cab, hop onto a double decker bus or take the London Underground to explore further afield.

All the London Underground lines (known as The Tube) are easily accessible, with both Oxford Circus, Great Portland Street and Goodge Street Tube Stations located a few minutes walk from the flat. If you fancy overground travel, buses to the whole of the rest of London are available on Oxford Street, just at the end of the road. The mainline London railway stations of Euston and Kings Cross are a couple of stops on the Tube away or a few minutes in a cab. If you are traveling from Heathrow Airport you can take the Paddington Express into central London and be at the flat in less than thirty minutes.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Hello I'm Mary and I'm very glad to be welcoming you to our London apartment. We have taken great pride in refurbishing and redecorating the property for your luxury and convenience. You will find everything has been chosen with care and attention to both quality and aesthetics. The apartment is light, pristinely clean, free of clutter, luxuriously comfortable and serenely peaceful. Step outside and you are in the very heart of London's West End with everything you could wish for at your fingertips. The dual aspects of peace and luxury on the inside and everything London has to offer on your doorstep is a unique combination for an extraordinary London vacation or business trip. We are sure you will relish and enjoy your stay in this fabulous apartment as much as we do. My daughter will be your first point of contact for bookings and she will respond immediately to any inquiries.

Why the Owner Chose Fitzrovia, London, UK:
The apartment couldn't be better located for London's West End shopping, theaters, restaurants and art galleries. W1 is London's most central West End postcode with everything you could wish for just a few moments walk away. With Oxford Street, Regent Street, Soho, Tottenham Court Road, Leicester Square and London’s theater district just round the corner, this beautiful flat is perfectly situated for you to get the most out of your London stay. The apartment has all new appliances i.e. microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer, single oven, gas hob, large fridge freezer and even a Vita mix for your morning smoothie. Free high speed wi fi is available and a stereo system with I pod/I phone dock. Apple chargers for I pads, I phones and Mac Laptops are also provided as well as a brand new, powerful hairdryer with diffuser. You can access many free films and TV programs on your laptop through BBC I Player.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Fitzrovia W1 was once home to writers such as Virginia Woolf and George Bernard Shaw. More recently it has become a popular destination for celebrities like Lady Gaga. Madonna previously owned a townhouse here which she shared with Guy Ritchie, who has more recently bought two mansions in Fitzrovia which he is combining into one house. Numerous media companies and the headquarters of the BBC are based in the area which feeds into its wonderful, vibrant, celebrity filled buzz. Recommendations for local restaurants and bars. There are so many restaurants to try in the area and so many different cuisines we wouldn't want to limit your exploration, however here are a few that we thoroughly enjoy. For breakfast try the Riding House Cafe on Great Titchfield Street itself. We choose to go early because it can get very busy during the lunchtime and evening periods as it is so close to the BBC headquarters, but for breakfast and a bit of celebrity spotting it can be a good place. There is also a lovely fish restaurant called Bonnie Gull at 21 Foley Street. Also the Thai River on Foley Street, just before the fish restaurant, has very good food and is great if you want a quiet meal. If you are really in the mood for something special and don't mind splashing out we can highly recommend the Langham Hotel for afternoon tea. (n.b. not to be confused with the Langham Court Hotel opposite the Yorkshire Grey Pub on Langham Street) It will cost you £40 per head but it's an experience well worth doing. The Langham Hotel bar is also a brilliant place to go for an evening drink, it's twice the price of a London pub but it’s a wonderful experience and really worth a visit. Get a seat at the bar and watch the highly professional bar tenders mix cocktails like a cabaret! We hope you have a great time.
