Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Laidback country glamour is met by calming city sophistication in this thoughtfully designed split-level maisonette. Refreshing and light the wooden floorboards implore a sense of tranquillity, while the serenity calm shades effortlessly wash the business of the London streets away. An antidote to the often-sterile city hotels, bask in the character and charm of your new London home.
Living and Eating
So step inside and take a look around. Find an open-plan living room, elegantly furnished with invitingly soft sofas and an armchair, all positioned to admire the gas-lit fire place and watched over by an attractive chandelier. Built in bookshelves line the walls, delight as the colourful collection brightens the room marvellously. Two sets of large French glass double doors flood the room with light, which is especially magical at sunset due to the South-Westerly positioning. From here you can access the refreshing and well-stocked garden. Brimming with natural wonders here you will find lavender, wisteria, jasmine, roses, hydrangeas, Mexican sun blossoms, and of course plenty of seating areas to enjoy the abundance of flora and fauna. Back inside there is a fully equipped kitchen with a large dining table that generously seats six.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
There is a master bedroom with a king size (5ft wide) bed, ample storage space and an en suite bathroom. Don't forget there is also access to the private garden too! A second bedroom offers a king-size bed that can also be configured as two singles. Continuing the theme from downstairs, light wooden flooring is evident throughout, as well as the sleep provoking soft shades.
The en suite bathroom has a toilet, double basin, bath and shower. A separate toilet with a built in bookshelf and also a shower room serves the second bedroom.
Access and Suitability
Access to the property is at street level (a few steps to access). Internal stairs join the main floor to the lower ground level. There are also external steps to the garden from both the living room and bedroom access. This home is particularly suitable for families or groups.

Central London/Zone 1
When you are ready to venture out you are conveniently located one-minute's walk from Baron's Court tube station (and only slightly longer to West Kensington and the District Line), this apartment enjoys a superb situation with the West End within 25 minutes door to door.
This quiet residential neighbourhood boasts a wealth of local amenities, including an excellent pub, local butcher and cafe all within 60 seconds' walk of the front door. Tennis enthusiasts will be happy to know their neighbours are the well known Queens Tennis club, interestingly the first multi-purpose sports complex ever to be built, and home to the world famous Aegon Championships.
Slightly further afield you come to the Earl's Court Exhibition Centre that hosts some of the most diverse events and conferences in London. Exploring beyond here you'll find the stunning Hyde Park, the fascinating Victoria and Albert Museum and eventually the prestigious Harrods – but unless you are an extremely seasoned hiker we recommend some form of public transport, or of course a 'Barclay's Bike' rather than walking.
Kensington is frequently associated with the city's best dressed and well-heeled. As such, it is no surprise that it is notable in particular for its main commercial artery, Kensington High Street, home of the Whole Foods Market flagship store and a vast selection of affordable brand names. Moving westwards takes you to Shepherd's Bush, home of the behemoth Westfield shopping centre, the largest urban mall in Europe. Alighting at the South Kensington tube stop, you begin to understand the area's reputation as the city's heart of high-brow culture. Right next to the station you will find a tightly knit (and well signposted) corridor of museums and galleries, all of which date from the 1851 Great Exhibition, whose profits Prince Albert used to regenerate the area. This includes the V&A, Science and Natural History Museums, as well as the Royal Albert Hall. The beauty of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park adds weight to London's title of most verdant city of its size in the world.
