Overview

Kensington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, floral art and antique furnished home in Southwest London

Light and shade

This is a home that rewards the lingering look. Carefully chosen furnishings have been positioned in dainty juxtaposition, accentuating the rooms’ graceful proportions and original features. Flowers nod from the walls, and the balcony looks onto a peaceful street that is quite quintessentially London. And, with the museums to one side and Kensington Gardens to the other, you’re ideally placed to explore the city. The enviable shops, bars and restaurants of Kensington, Knightsbridge and Notting Hill are all within easy reach. But in this part of town, be sure you factor in a little time just to stand and stare.

Step this way

Your hostess has owned this apartment for over thirty years, bringing her family up here, so there are lots of happy memories. Earlier in her life she lived in Bangkok, which gave her the travelling bug. Your hostess also loves walking, and can often be found tracing her way between some of the capital’s most historic buildings.

Classic composition

An evening here is a pleasure indeed, and the shelves of books and DVDs ensure that you’ll have plenty to do. Windows on two sides fill this room with sunshine and on warm summer nights, open the the sash windows and peer down onto the street and communal garden below. The first double bedroom is flowing with flowery art, while the master is a grander affair, its warm walls somewhere between salmon and terracotta. There’s a marble fireplace, antique furniture, and a soft, welcoming bed, freshly swathed with our crisp white linen.

The landscape

A trip to the V&A is a must, and with the Science and Natural History museums so close by, you’ve several days’ worth of free entertainment. Meanwhile, Kensington and Knightsbridge are awash with tantalizing boutiques, cute cafes and glitzy restaurants. Walk in Kensington Gardens, gorge on cupcakes in Notting Hill, or, if you want to explore the West End, the tube from Earl’s Court to Covent Garden takes around fifteen minutes.
