Property description

Our apartment is located on a beautiful, garden square in a residential area of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. It is very quiet, yet only a 2 minutes walk to Kensington High St, with the Tube (Underground), buses, shops, restaurants and cafes.

The apartment has been recently refurbished to an American standard with air-conditioning in every room. It is modern, spacious and light and very well equipped. The kitchen has a washing machine, separate tumble dryer, dishwasher, garbage disposal and all appliances. The master bedroom has an American king size bed (6' X 6'6') with ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has 2 twin (single) beds which can be zipped together to form another king size bed if required, plus a separate bathroom.

Kensington is a district of central London, England within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. An affluent and densely-populated area, its commercial heart is Kensington High Street, and it contains the well-known museum district of South Kensington.

Kensington High Street is one of western London's most popular shopping streets, with upmarket shops serving a wealthy area. It also has Europe's largest roof garden area (1.5 acres (6,100 m2)), consisting of three different gardens with 500 species of plants, fountains, a stream, ducks, flamingos and a restaurant - said to serve the best high tea in Kensington.

Car: Not Necessary

The wonderful sites of London are within easy access as we are so central. Hyde Park and Kensington gardens are a ten-minute walk in one direction. Holland Park is a ten-minute walk in the other direction. We are within a short distance of the Royal Albert Hall, the museums and Harrods. High Street Kensington Tube Station (Underground / Subway) is two minutes walk away. The theatre district is just a short hop away. There are 2 gyms within 5 minutes walk. One of which has a swimming pool and both welcome short term members.

From Heathrow you can take the Heathrow express to Paddington and then tube or taxi - or we would be happy to arrange a taxi pick-up for you with our own driver.
