BREATHTAKING HOME BY THE ALBERT HALL OVERLOOKING KENSINGTON GARDENS

Knightsbridge Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Home Is Possibly One Of The Grandest In London

No expense spared

For in this home, the grandeur is no illusion. Alongside the Albert Hall, and gazing down upon Hyde Park lies the imposing façade of Albert Hall Mansions. Erected in 1879 by celebrated architect Norman Shaw, this is a building designed to cause a sharp intake of breath. Parquet, tapestries and panelling combine to create an effect that’s at once sumptuous and imposing. Normally, such levels of luxury are only to be found at the smartest hotels. But here, there are no desk staff, no cringing concierge. Shut the door and get ready for some fun – for this is one palace you can have all to yourself.

An eye for detail

Your hosts are a German couple who met living in Beijing--hence the Asian treasures that bedeck their home. She’s an eminent eye surgeon, he a successful financier. But for all the glamour of their living arrangements, theirs is very much a family home. With a three-year-old boy making merry in every room, how could it be anything else?

Welcome imposition

Make no mistake, Albert Hall Mansions is imposing. Corinthian pillars, stained glass and chandeliers greet you in the hallway, from where you’ve a choice of two spectacular reception rooms, both with park-facing terraces. The kitchen’s large and eminently functional, so cook up a feast for your guests and dine in splendour. Even Queen Victoria would approve.

Downstairs you’ll find an elegant master bedroom, with a superking sized double and gleaming ensuite. There’s a further spacious double, and then, the bedroom of the young master of the house, complete with an extensive collection of teddy bears.

Back down to earth

You are steps away from both the world’s most beautiful park and its finest concert hall. The shops and restaurants of Kensington are around the corner, and the Natural History and Science museums are close at hand. For all its peace and quiet, Albert Hall Mansions is right in zone 1, so a cab can whisk you to pretty much wherever you fancy in only a handful of minutes.

Elegant and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
The captivating facade tells more once inside the stylish and lavish apartment. Classy and majestic, the rooms are suited for that of a king's and queen's sanctuary. A great place to stay, pamper and relax after a long stroll from nearby museums and city highlights.
