Overview

Ladbroke Grove House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Double Bedrooms + 2 Convertible beds, 1.5 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Thoughtfully refurbished, this cosy, dream house is located in a quiet crescent, overlooking a child friendly gated communal garden. The front door is set back from the road by the gorgeous, private front garden. Water features, birds and an abundance of colour surrounds as you relax on the garden chair whilst watching the evening sun set over Notting Hill.

The warm, traditional soft furnishings and beautifully lit, colour-blushed interior makes for a gorgeous, sumptuous living space which instantly relaxes. It has been well thought out with a single open plan ground floor carefully split into living, cooking, dining and study areas.

The house is very quiet and is blessed by having no neighbours to the rear. Opening the patio doors at the back to link the patio with the kitchen and dining areas makes for a wonderfully peaceful al fresco ambience. A far cry from the London buzz.

And the buzz… the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is home to some of the most interesting and enjoyable attractions in London. From the ever-hip King's Road in Chelsea to the more recently popular Westfield Shopping Centre, Notting Hill Gate and Portobello Road; the shopping heaven that is Kensington High Street & Harrods; the fantastic greenery and scenery of Kensington Gardens; to some of London's top museums, located in South Kensington. St Marks park, only 5 minutes walk from the house, boasts a fantastic water park and adventure playground for the kids and a charming outdoor café for the parents.

The wonderful local bars and eateries are a treasure easily discovered and a short tube or bus ride is all that separates you from the glittering delights of the West End and London city centre.

Owned by a very successful film director, the aesthetic luxury and homeliness of the interior is a testimony to the owner's many years of experience behind the silver screen. A stay here will leave you inspired and hopefully full of wonderful memories from this eclectic city.

About Rowan

I love the energy of London, and in my house I have strived to create a quiet corner to come back to. I don't do anything without giving it 110% and that is particularly true about my home. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Rowan purchased this house in 1980

Why Rowan chose Ladbroke Grove

The rich blend of cultures and artistic influences makes London a beautifully unique city and I consider myself lucky to have found this corner of it for myself. The area around this property is gifted and is widely considered to be the best corner of London, quiet enough to relax yet close to the great attractions.

What makes this house unique

Having Portobello Road just 10 minutes walk away is fantastic and the tube and bus services are wonderful for getting to any other part of London. The world famous Notting Hill Gate, the West End, London's incredible free museums and Hyde Park to name but a few places all very easily reached via a walk or bus which you can catch just 100metres from the house.

Extra Space for our Family

  • 4 of 5
We are a family of four (me, husband, and two children--3yrs and 6yrs). I was a little nervous about our stay because I called/emailed about two weeks before our arrival date and didn't receive a response. A few days before arriving, I called again and reached the property manager. He met us promptly at the agreed upon time and explained the perks of the immediate area. The grocery store is close, as well as the bus stop and tube stop. Ladbroke Grove is the closest tube stop. Our family comfortably walked to and from the bus and tube stops on a regular basis.
The first floor consists of a living room, dining area, kitchen, 1/2 bath, and a little patio out back. Because the weather was absolutely gorgeous during our stay, we enjoyed having the double doors leading out to the patio open to allow for air flow. The TV and stereo were not working upon arrival. We called the property manager, and he had the TV replaced by the time we got back to the flat later that afternoon. The second floor has two bedrooms and a bath. The shower was a little tricky, but our kids loved taking a bath in the super deep tub. I was prepared to wash a load of clothes, but couldn't locate the clothesline. I ended up finding a drying rack in the entryway closet.
We were visiting family and this location was perfect. My inlaws even said that they would recommend this rental should family from the US come to visit. The square footage was perfect for our family. After each day's adventure, our kids would look forward to "coming home."

Happy, but somewhat disappointed.

  • 4 of 5
Found the flat to be clean, spacious, safe, quiet and a decent location. However the listing is a little misleading -there is no hot tub, no convertible bed, the TV, and Stereo were not working for the full time we were there. As well we had issues with the stove. In our opinion the flat only can accomodate only four adults for sleeping. Most frustrating however was not having any representative meet us, as agreed upon. Twice we made arrangements to meet at the flat, and on both occasions no one showed. As a suggestion - perhaps if there was a clothesline the towels would have had a very musty smell.

A London get away

  • 5 of 5
Two of us decided to rent this property as our "home" while we visited London and its
museums and sights! The flat is very comfortable, well located within walking distance of the tube and grocery stores, not to mention Portobello Road! We found the kitchen well equipped, as was the rest of the house. The decor was so much fun and eclectic! Since it was Spring, the front garden was bursting with flowers and budded trees, which matched the landscape of the park across the street. We would be hard pressed to find anything more
accommodating!! We loved it!

Lovely house, friendly neighbours great location in London

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay at barlby gardens. The house is located above Portobello (the tube is not on the doorstep but it has masses of buses nearby that take you to all the majoy attractions in London including the tube down the road). It was a great luxury to have so much space, we were 5 people in total, 2 of which small children and we all had our own space. Very peaceful and calm road, great to have Sainsburys so close but also the proximity to all the restaurants & shops of Ladbroke Grove & Notting Hill made this stay specially fun and charming for all of us. The bedrooms, bathroom & kitchen is very well equipped my only ongoing concern was the many precious glass ornaments that we tried desperately not too break in the living room (successfully). Would definately recommend this lovely house and rent it again.

perfect london hideaway

  • 5 of 5
i stayed at 16 barlby gardens along with a gang of 4 travel companions for 4 nights in mid june 2011. we had an outstanding time. the house is immaculate-- the bedrooms (especially the master bedroom) are beautiful, the master bath is straight out of architectural digest, the living room is cozy and stylish, the kitchen and laundry are modern and user-friendly, and the front and back patios are magical. i/we would certainly stay at 16 barlby gardens the next time i/we come to london (and every time thereafter). the only slight drawback is the location. it is a legit 10 minute walk (if not a bit longer) to the ladbroke grove tube or portobello road, and to get there, you have to traverse a slightly dodgy neighborhood. but it's a true london experience, and well worth experiencing.

10 Minutes walk to Portobello Market (the World's largest antiques market), short bus ride to Notting Hill and Westfield (Europes largest shopping centre) and just 5 minutes walk from St Marks Park. There is even a gated communal garden between the house and the busier Barlby road which keeps the place quiet and makes a great play area for the kids.
