About Carl and Liz Risberg
Hello. We decided to buy this flat on St. Stephens Gardens because of it's unique location on a private garden square in Notting Hill Gate. It's a lovely flat and has become one of our best rental flats in London. Families with teens love it because of the two bathrooms and spacious living area throughout the flat. We live in London and such are available to our guests 24/7. Two of our girls go to school in London and the oldest is taking her Masters in business in Pamplona, Spain.
Carl and Liz Risberg purchased this apartment in 2005
