Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Bayswater - Cleveland Square 2
2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, close to Kensington Gardens in West London
His dark materials
There’s a dusky decadence to Cleveland Square 2, a deep opulence that murmurs from the hall’s hand painted wallpaper to the bathrooms’ burnished stone. Oscar Wilde would have found this apartment eminently agreeable, the wide windows illuminating exquisite fabrics, original features and a truly enthralling library. Halfway between Notting Hill and Oxford Street, this home sits high in a square just behind Kensington Gardens. Gather jewels at Portobello Road Market, sip a cocktail in the bars of Westbourne Grove or take your credit card for a spin in Selfridges. Every earthly delight is here for the taking – all you have to do is reach out, and smile.
Your hosts are a young family who spend much of their time in the country. She’s an artist, and her London home is perhaps her greatest achievement. She redesigned the interiors herself, and you’ll spot some of her work upon the walls.
There’s a boutique feel to these rooms, a sense of carefully curated luxury. The sitting room broods like a September sky, its chic greys enlivened by two witty blue velvet chairs. Step across to the dining room for a shimmering shoal of hand painted fish – and meanwhile the kitchen is a little industrial and ever so fashionable. Both bedrooms are doubles, and boast ensuites that might put a five star hotel to shame. The master bedroom benefits from a freestanding roll topped bath, while the second double has a shower hewn from pearly marble.
Innocents will race around Kensington Gardens, go bowling at Queensway and then tuck into a sundae in one of the best ice cream parlours in town. For those of a more sinful bent, there’s wickedly good fun to be had in nearby Mayfair, where the nights are as long as the drinks are strong. Stay closer to home for kooky times in Westbourne Grove and Notting Hill, or, if you want to party in the West End, the tube from Queensway to Piccadilly Circus takes around fifteen minutes.
