This ground floor period maisonette is in one of the most exclusive areas of Kensington and oozes elegance throughout. The private garden square has gorgeous lawns for Harrington Gardens residents.
The spacious sitting room is stylish with two large cream sofas, an original Victorian fireplace and black and white artwork to match the design of the central rug. Splashes of dusty pink in the rug and cushions create a warm ambience. The armchairs and stylish glass table by the shuttered bay windows would make a cosy spot for a relaxed breakfast.
Outside, the private terrace is a great area for some al fresco dining with outdoor seating and a barbeque, or you could spill out onto the well-kept lawns with a picnic.
The kitchen is equipped with all modern amenities and is minimalist in style, with white fitted cupboards, a sleek glass dining table and leather dining chairs. The mosaic tiling and striking modernist painting provide some colour.
The master bedroom is chic and bright with white walls, a modern built-in wardrobe and inset dressing table area. The kingsize bed has a stylish grey headboard with matching bedside tables and cream lamps. The marble en suite off the master bedroom has a sophisticated style. There is a shower attachment over the bath, a loo, a sink and a heated towel rail.
The second bedroom has wooden floors, twin beds with traditional style floral headboards and matching curtains. There's a central modern lamp between the beds and this room has doors opening out onto the gardens. The second guest bathroom has a wet-room style glass walk-in shower, a trendy triangular sink unit and a loo.
The apartment is in a very sought-after area, between Cromwell Road and Old Brompton Road in Kensington, where there is an array of upmarket cafes, popular bars and boutique shops to explore. For dining out you are spoilt for choice as there are many good restaurants in the local area.
It is also only a short stroll to the museums in South Kensington, and not far to the West you have Earl's Court and the Exhibition Centre where world-class events are hosted. The famous King's Road is also just a quick bus trip to the South.
The closest tube station, Gloucester Road, is only a 3 minute walk away and from here you can join the Piccadilly, Circle and District lines. You can be at Oxford Street for some retail therapy in under 15 minutes, or just hop on the tube to Stratford and the Olympic Park which is a 35 minute journey.
The focus of this exclusive area is Kensington High Street with its array of upmarket boutiques and luxury shops as well as high street shops, cafes and restaurants. The streets of elegant townhouses, often with white pillared fronts, are classically British and familiar to many as an emblem of prosperity. Behind these immaculate doors are spacious homes, with room for all the family.
Kensington borders Hyde Park - one of the largest parks in central London and a great day out – as well as Kensington Gardens and Kensington Palace where Princess Diana once lived. Holland Park, just West of Kensington High Street, is handy for a walk with the kids, or if you’re looking for an urban retreat to unwind, there are many high end spas and salons to visit.
The second hub of activity is in South Kensington, which has a tube station and a decent selection of pubs, wine bars and eateries. This area plays host to many museums and venues, notably the Royal Albert Hall, the Natural History Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Many consider this the ideal destination for a family vacation to London because of the safe, quiet streets and numerous activities available close to the city centre.
