South Kensington Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Intriguing 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom flat in South Kensington
Fresh as Snow
Climb to the top floor of a sturdy red brick Victorian mansion, then allow yourself to tumble down in a flurry of alabaster bed linen and pearly white walls. This home has the cool glitter of dawn light upon new snow, and you’ll be just aching to let loose amongst its spacious rooms and modern-retro furniture. Recently renovated and gorgeously stylish on the inside, outside you’re just a swish away from Kensington High Street’s exceptional boutiques. And with cafes and restaurants that put Whistler and Val d'Isère in the shade, your fondue never tasted better.
Chalet girls and boys
Your hosts are a pair of skiing fanatics, who can be found zigzagging down mountainsides every winter weekend, so it’s no coincidence that their primary home is in Switzerland. And when the goggles come off, she’s a hotelier, while he works in finance.
Cresswell Gardens’ sitting room channels something of a fifties aesthetic, with floating shelves, a low coffee table and a bold mocha rug. The TV’s large, the corner sofa’s invitingly squidy and musical types will appreciate the stereo’s high-end Bowers & Wilkins ipod docking station. The brand new kitchen gleams with new surfaces and appliances, and there’s a grey mosaic bathroom with a powerful shower along the hall, filled with fluffy towels and White Company toiletries
The first double bedroom is crisp and fresh, with a radiator disguised as a full-length mirror. There’s a second bedroom, which can be set either as a twin or a super kingsized double, and next door there’s an ivory-pale ensuite.
You’re between Kensington High Street and Chelsea’s King’s Road, both of which have far more than their fair share of glitzy shops and restaurants, not to mention cosy cafes in which to sup a reviving hot chocolate. Hyde Park and the museums are close at hand, while the journey into town is the easiest of runs - the tube from Gloucester Road to Piccadilly Circus takes ten minutes.
