South Kensington Cottage Rental Photos and Description
This Lovely 3 Bedroom Mews House In Affluent South Kensington
The low down
Between Chelsea’s chic King’s Road and the grand museums of Kensington runs a network of grand squares and winding back streets. And it’s down one of these cobbled lanes that you’ll find Ensor Mews, a traditional mews house, shyly resplendent in the most delicate cobalt blue. Inside, the rooms are petite perfection, with a definite Shaker feel in the pale walls, exposed beams and wooden floors.
And there’s also something distinctly bovine going on, with cows of all shapes and sizes gazing benignly down from the walls. In fact, this house is – and there’s really no other way to say this, completely and udderly brilliant!
On the hoof
Your hostess is from Cologne, and has lived at Ensor Mews ever since university. She loves the location of her home, and, given that she’s within walking distance of Hyde Park and the shops and restaurants of both Kensington and Chelsea, we can absolutely see why.
And when a home is this gorgeous, why not? The sitting room’s squishy mocha sofa looks out onto the wood panelled fireplace, and you can choose between curling up in front of the TV and enjoying your hostess’ collection of books. The eat-in kitchen seats six, and you’ll find everything you need to create a delicious dinner within the sleek new units.
And, upstairs, the master bedroom will have you lowing with pleasure. A chandelier twinkles beneath the exposed beams of the roof, a Friesian friend watches from the wall, and next door, you’ve a dressing area and a neat en suite. There’s another cow standing guard from the mezzanine in the second bedroom, a classically pretty family bathroom, while the third bedroom doubles as a study.
Where do you even begin? Perhaps with a day out at one of London’s great museums, just a handful of minutes away, or maybe a morning rowing on the Serpentine? Hit the shops on Chelsea’s King’s Road or High Street Kensington, or graze in your many fabulous local restaurants. And if you want to go into town, the tube from South Kensington to Piccadilly Circus takes a mere eight minutes.
