Earls Court Apartment Rental Photos and Description
3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, calm, spacious apartment in Southwest London
Fusing ancient Asia with traditional Britain, Redcliffe Gardens combines London elegance with Oriental grace. A visiting geisha would surely stay here, her kimono hem fluttering across the hand-woven rugs. The windows are large, and, for those who prefer to direct their contemplation inwards, the shelves are loaded with books. You’re a short walk from the museums and the pretty cafes of Gloucester Road, and it’s only a little further to Kensington Gardens. Drift between white stucco-fronted houses until you reach the shops and restaurants of Kensington High Street, or turn the other way for ritzy Knightsbridge, where you’ll find silk, jade and the most exquisite pearls.
Grant me wisdom
Your hostess originally discovered Asia when her partner was sent there for work. Now, she loves all things Eastern, and the effect has permeated her home. She has two sons, one in England and one studying in France.
The old ways
There’s an almost temple-like serenity to the large sitting room. Its proportions are perfectly balanced, and so too is the ratio of decoration to comfort. Relax upon the grass-green leather sofa, or investigate the modern kitchen. Here, too, the atmosphere is deeply tranquil, and whether you want to bake a cake or prepare a tea ceremony, there’s plenty of space upon the marble worktop. Eight can dine beneath pendant lamps next door, and your guests will love the curves of the original fireplace. There’s an airy feel to the first double bedroom, with its red sofa and floral lamp, while the second double has a handy work area and more books. The master bedroom is all restrained decadence, with a polished sleigh bed, and a pale ensuite, filled with White Company toiletries.
Marvel at the treasures on display in the Victoria and Albert Museum, and then add to your own jewel box in nearby Harrods. Walk the picturesque lawns of Kensington Gardens, shop in glamorous Knightsbridge or fashionable Kensington, or simply take a book downstairs to Coleherne Court’s mature communal gardens. The tube from Earl’s Court to Piccadilly Circus takes twelve minutes.
