Earls Court Apartment Rental Photos and Description
The quirky and the organic come together to create a playful atmosphere
Down in a quiet side street, just across from one of London’s loveliest garden squares, is a home with a secret – a hoard of objects both pulchritudinous and peculiar. The quirky and the organic come together to create a playful atmosphere, while original features and a stunning contemporary garden lend this home a tremendous tranquillity. Visit London’s great museums, all close at hand in South Kensington,or seek out Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, returning home to feast upon the locality's world cuisine.
Your hosts are from South Africa, a doctor and an interior designer. Doc loves collecting art, while he’s always outside. The garden is his pride and joy, and he’s constantly returning home with new additions to the already jam-packed beds.
The open-plan living space of Penywern Road is dominated by a grand piano, which bathes in a pool of sunshine in the bay window. The rest of the room is a mix of the comfortable and the bizarre, spot the propeller propped up by the original fireplace, and the statue facing the linen-clad sofa. The dining table sits up to eight, and the contemporary kitchen is shinily well–equipped.
The walls of the master bedroom are a-cluster with framed art, while the huge gilt mirror lends the whole a certain old-school glamour. Notice the table alongside the kingsized bed – formed from a tree trunk – restored to its present glory by your hosts. Back through the hall, like a peaceful antechamber, the limestone bathroom is a haven of relaxation. And outside, you’ll discover the most modern of gardens, luscious with fruit and flowers, lie back on the sofa and pretend you’re in the tropics. Eight can dine beneath the shady parasol, lulled by the warbling of two dazzling water features.
Voyage of discovery
Spend long afternoons amidst fossils of the Natural History Museum, or gazing at the curios so carefully curated by the V&A. Then call in for a coffee and croissant at one of Gloucester Road’s cafes, before an afternoon of shopping on Kensington High Street. Or, nip into town, the tube from Earls Court to Piccadilly Circus takes twelve minutes.
