Fasten your seatbelt
Extraordinarily bright and filled with sunshine, spending time here is like floating high above the clouds. Spread across the top two floors of a Victorian mansion, Onslow Gardens 2 is airy and pleasant, with exquisite attention to detail. There’s a sense of the exotic to this home. The Indian throw, the jewel-bright cushions and the warm wood of the kitchen all give the feel of a life well travelled. And, should you be experiencing itchy feet, outside you’ll find many rewards. From the great museums to Hyde Park to the gorgeous shops, cafes and restaurants of High Street Kensington, the question is simply where your wanderings should take you.
Your hostess works in the City, and when she’s not at her desk, she’s taking to the skies. Something of a modern-day Amelia Earhart, without the unfortunate propensity to vanish, she’s a qualified pilot, and spends around thirty hours a year swooping through the air in her own private plane.
First class lounge
If you like to lie flat, you’re in luck, whether you choose the comfortable sofa or your very own chaise longue. Souvenirs from your hostess’ trips are all around, from the Egyptian brass coffee table to Thai statues, and the whole room gleams with the light that streams in through the original Victorian windows. The kitchen’s well equipped for sky-high creations, while the dining area seats six and is lined with cheerful art.
Upstairs, the sage green master bedroom is cosy beneath the eaves, with a sweet window seat, and an intriguing high-backed Chinese chair. Next door, the matching ensuite is modern, and filled with our scrumptious White Company toiletries. You’ve two further charming double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Then, it’s up the stairs one last time, to find a private roof terrace, with views out as far as the London Eye.
Gourmands will adore this part of London. Whether you’re tripping across to Notting Hill for a cupcake or heading down to the newly reopened Tom Aikens, we know you’ll be more than satisfied. The shopping in Kensington is some of the best in town, and you’ll be sharing your local cafes and bars with some very cool customers. All this, and the tube from Gloucester Road to Piccadilly Circus takes just ten minutes.
