West Kensington House Rental Photos and Description
Bright & friendly space, furnished with a quirky mix of the modern & the antique
Quiet streets, gracious architecture, mature trees and sweet corner shops… West Kensington may be only a walk away from the museums, Kensington High Street and Holland Park, but you’d never know it. There’s a peacefulness here that belies the location, for despite the birdsong, you’re remarkably close to the action. Whether it’s shopping, eating out, sunbathing or an afternoon among dinosaur skeletons, you won’t be short of things to do. Inside, you’ll find a bright and friendly space for all the family, furnished with a quirky mix of the modern and the antique. And considered touches like the eco paint and CCTV entrance make this home a true original, much like the city in which you’ll find it.
Your hosts are French and American, and they divide their time between London and Paris. Working in digital media, they’re a forward-thinking pair, able to chat in English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Russian, Japanese and even Zulu.
The sitting room of North End House is airy, gracious, and just a little eccentric. The leather sofa is comfy, the large windows fill the room with light, and you’ll immediately spot the extravagantly gilded antique century clock sitting atop a marble side table. The kitchen displays some cute family artwork, and look out for the gold centrepiece on the round dining table.
The master bedroom features a hand-woven rug, a king-sized bed and antique furniture the exact hue of bitter chocolate. There’s a second double, with a queen-sized bed, and further along, two singles- one doubling as a study, and each with its own modern ensuite. The family bathroom gleams in cream and slate-grey, and of course, you’ve our fluffy towels, and stash of yummy White Company toiletries.
Hustle and bustle
Amble down to Kensington High Street for some of London’s best shops and restaurants, or across to Gloucester Road for South Kensington’s world famous museums. When the sun’s out, choose between Holland and Hyde parks, or head into town. Jump on a bus, or nip down the tube. The journey from Barons Court to Piccadilly Circus takes fifteen minutes.
