West Kensington Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Step in to this stylish one bedroom flat with a pretty communal garden
South Kensington is amongst London’s most desirable postcodes, and Onslow Gardens 3 is a bright, chic apartment right in its very heart.
Bordered by Knightsbridge, Kensington High Street and Chelsea, this enclave boasts the best in all things, from the most fashionable boutiques to outrageously fabulous bars and restaurants. Or, for more cerebral delights, you’ve the museums of Exhibition Road, and beautiful Hyde Park just around the corner.
So it’s small wonder that this, one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in the world, is occupied by London’s upper crust. Tall white buildings gaze down on clean, quiet streets, and the peace is unbroken but for the occasional muted bark of a (very well bred) little dog.
Like many of South Kensington’s residents, your hosts are expats, in this case, hailing from New York. He’s now based mainly in Spain, while she organises conferences all around the globe, and keeps a suitcase packed, ready to dash off the second the phone rings. When she’s not fighting off jet lag, she can be found entertaining her friends, and stocking her kitchen with chocolate.
It may be close to some of London’s top destinations, but this home has a real sense of serenity. The sitting room’s lit by three large windows and the carpet’s the exact hue of clotted cream. The sunny kitchen’s modern and spacious, and you may wish to take your meal outside to the lovely shared garden. There are two bathrooms, the larger with a bath and slate flooring, and a small ensuite with a shower and our fluffy white towels. Next door, you’ll find a kingsize bed, a silvered chest of drawers, and quietly outrageous leopard print bedside lamps.
The high life
Where on earth do you begin? At the Natural History Museum, only a handful of minutes’ walk away? With a trip along the Serpentine? Or perhaps you’ll amble over to Harrods, or head down to Sloane Square and the Royal Court Theatre? When it comes to eating out, you’ll have an almost infinite choice of good local bistros, restaurants and patisseries. Or, if you’d rather go into town, the tube from Gloucester Road to Piccadilly Circus takes ten minutes.
