TWO BEDROOM, TWO BATHROOM HOME IN WELL-CONNECTED WEST KENSINGTON

West Kensington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Spend your own Arabian nights in this exotic, 2 bedroom/bathroom Apt

Tiger in the grass

The tranquil district of West Kensington oozes old-fashioned Englishness. In spring, Oxford and Cambridge’s crews flash frantically past the Hammersmith side of the river in the famous Boat Race. In summer, the air rings to the soft report of ball against racket on the grass courts of Queen’s Club, famously the preparation for Wimbledon. What could be more English? But this quiet quarter hides an exotic secret. Here, a well-seasoned traveller has carved out a splendidly opulent space to call her own. An elegant first-floor apartment in a Victorian mansion, it invites you to discover its many treasures.

A tale of many journeys

Your globe-trotting hostess hails originally from the Lebanon and first journeyed to England in the 1970s, braving the winters of discontent to stay and raise her children here. Now those children have grown up and adventured away in their turn to the international haunts of Dubai and Paris and she spends much of her time visiting them. She keeps the apartment as her main base in London, which she still sees as her base. Here, ancient and modern worlds combine seamlessly, as clean, cool spaces and colours blend with artworks from all over the world – an iron Buddha here, a group of delightful bronze figurines there.

Open Sesame

When you enter, the long hall offers you a choice of doorways. In the light, spacious living-room, a beautiful Eastern rug covers the wooden floor, huge, stunning porcelain vases stand on glass shelves and two stone Japanese women guard the hearth. In the kitchen area, pots and pans hang from the ceiling and glass jars are filled with heavenly-looking spices. This place tempts you with sensuous offerings, as you slowly prepare a feast fit for a thousand and one guests.

The first of two double bedrooms is a tranquil space, with a rocking-chair where you can curl up to read tales of travel and adventure. A substantial bathroom boasts a huge wall mirror, and the master bedroom is elegant and evocative, with paintings of the desert and boats at sunset on the seashore. From this room, a sliding frosted door leads you alluringly into an ensuite bathroom, a peaceful oasis with a huge walk-in shower fit for a potentate.

A journey onwards

If you want to journey onwards, why not wander down the road to see where the river winds its way east through Hammersmith? Catch a tale of derring-do at the Riverside Studios, one of London’s most appealing art-house cinemas, or sup at the River Café, famously the starting-out place of chef Jamie Oliver. Venture a little further and explore the fascinating Moroccan quarter of Golborne Road and barter with vendors at Portobello Road market. But if the modern world calls, your magic carpet awaits. The tube from nearby Hammersmith station can have you gazing at the lights of Piccadilly Circus in just over 15 minutes.
