Holland Park Apartment Rental Photos and Description
There’s an Egyptian feel to this 1 bedroom Victorian flat in classy Holland Park
Sands of time
There’s history in this home. Large windows stream light onto honeyed wooden floors and chocolate leather, while all around, precious objects sing of faraway lands. Linger over the collage of the Dome of The Rock, or gaze in the Syrian mirror and let your mind soar. Beyond your front door, you’ll find all manner of exotic delicacies in your local corner shops. The boutiques, cafes and restaurants of Kensington High Street are close at hand, while the green expanses of Holland Park can satisfy any nomadic urges to roam free.
Your Egyptian hosts spend much of their time in Cairo, using Oakwood Court as their London crash pad. Two distinguished academics, they met at the London School of Economics. He’s now works in Cairo and is writer, while she is an academic
The sitting room of Oakwood Court is studded with fascinating pieces of artwork and carefully collected treasures, from the grand mirror to the tiniest bronze pot.
The furniture’s antique, with richly grained wood, and you’re more than welcome to browse your hosts’ collection of books. You’ll find the eat-in kitchen sunny and bright, with everything you’ll need, whether you’re whipping up basbousa or baba ganoush.
The bathroom is wonderfully simple, with a power shower and a cache of our White Company toiletries. The master bedroom is soaked in sunshine from the three windows, and if you’re not spread out on our luxury linen, sit at the vintage writing desk, or lounge upon the dusky rose sofa. The bedside tables are in fact Chinese drums, and look down to see the spicy wool rug.
You’re within a short walk of Kensington High Street, where you’ll find a cinema, tempting shops and an abundance of pretty cafes and buzzy bars. Go a little further to reach Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, and from there, you’re within easy reach of the grand museums and Notting Hill. The tube from High Street Kensington to Piccadilly Circus takes around twenty minutes.
