Georgian Townhouse in Knightsbridge, central London. Moments from Harrods's in one direction and Hyde Park in another. Surrounded by some of London's top restaurants. There is also a local family Pizza Express and lower cost restaurants.

This rare central London house has three double bedrooms and a sitting room with a double sofa bed and three bathrooms. It is in an area known as Knightsbridge Village with period houses from 1800 which have a conservation order on them so that the area keeps its genuine period atmosphere.

For sightseers and shoppers Knightsbridge is the centre of luxury shopping with all the main designers' shops in Sloane Street, 5 minutes walk away as well as Harvey Nichols and Harrods less than 2 minutes from the house. King's Road is a 10 minute walk or five minute bus ride away or if you are looking for more general high street shopping there is Kensington High Street 7 minutes bus ride away or Oxford Street with the famous Selfridge's department store 10 minutes busride ( or a lovely 25 minute walk across the park) in the other direction.

West End theatres, Covent Garden, the Royal Opera House, are a ten minute bus ride away.

The Victoria & Albert Museum, National History Museum and Science Museum are less than 5 minutes walk away and the Royal Academy and Tate art Galleries a short taxi or bus ride from this lovely house.

Buckingham Palace is a 10 minute walk away and another 10 minutes further you will arrive at Trafalgar Square or the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

This really is the best part of London to be based for a combination of being central to all the attractions yet with the old London atmosphere.

Quiet and convenient London getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adults visited from October 18th to 26th 2017. We loved it! The house was quiet yet close to Harrod's and the Kensington Tube stop, had a fully equipped kitchen and ample seating for dining, a working washer and dryer (yay!) and good wifi. There were multiple grocery store choices nearby and so much within walking distance. Would definitely recommend. Kezia was so helpful in arranging extra transportation for us. Thanks again!

Convenient, well equipped townhouse in Central London

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed in this unit in for a week in late July. We found it very convenient to the Knightsbridge and South Kensington tube stations, and 2 grocery stores are a short walk away. The unit is well equipped in terms of kitchen supplies, towels etc and the beds were comfortable. You enter at street level, and there is a living room to your left. Down a half flight of stairs is a sitting room where the sofa makes into a bed which serves as your 3rd bedroom (be sure you indicate that you want this made up--an assumption was made that our teenage boys wanted to share a room which wasn't the case). The washer/dryer is in this room and the porch with a BBQ is off of this room. Down another half flight of stairs, in the basement, is the kitchen and dining room. Between the ground floor and 2nd floor is a very tiny bathroom and a sitting porch which my son enjoyed. On the 2nd floor is the master bedroom and bathroom. Between the 2nd and 3rd floor is a 3rd bathroom, and on the 3rd floor is the 2nd bedroom. We had some trouble with the internet, which hopefully has been since been properly resolved (we got it working with some creative ways to apply pressure to the lose wiring). The property manager was responsive and helpful, and met us upon entry and showed us how to work everything. The owner was responsive to all email inquiries.

Great location. Very comfortable home. It was perfect for our group of five adults.

  • 4 of 5

The owner and his niece are very responsive. The house felt like a home. There is construction noise next door and across the street starting around 8 am. Hopefully both projects will wrap up soon. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Fantastic property, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Knightsbridge Townhouse. It could not have been better. We are a family of 5 - the house was roomy and had an excellent layout. Close to everything. We had a great time walking to all the famous spots. House was set up perfectly.
