2 Bedroom Luxurious Apartment

Beautiful apartment on the lower ground floor with your own front door in the elegant entrance hallway of a grand Georgian House, very quiet and private and exceptionally safe. Outside patio with table and chairs. It is possible to leave the bedroom doors (which open onto the patio) open all day and night, it is that safe! Super large bathroom with underfloor heating,large bath and walk in power shower. A spacious dressing room with lots of hanging space.The dressing room seperates the two bedrooms. Fully fitted kitchen with a Panasonic music system. Sitting room with dining table and chairs for 6 persons. An L shaped sofa system which is large enough to sleep an extra person if necessary. 42 ' 3D Plasma tv, with Freeview cable tv (100's of channels). Coal effect fire within the fireplace. Very atmospheric room. A most romantic apartment for a couple but also perfect for families. This is like having your own personal hotel suite in London, warm and cozy in winter, cool and welcoming in summer.

Added attractions within the area are:- swimming in summertime in the Hyde Park serpentine lake, there is also a private and safe little play area and paddling pool for toddlers and little ones, as well as a great adventure playground for the older child in Holland Park. Barnes wetlands is also close by (15 minute bus ride), this is a bird-watchers paradise, you would never dream you were so close to London. Kew Gardens is 20 mins by tube. Wining and Dining in the most exclusive of restaraunts or casual cafes and picnics in the park. Boris bicycles everywhere, this is the best way to see the parks. Roller blading also in Kensington Gardens near the Albert Memorial statue, this is a meeting place for the keen roller bladers to show off their skills. Horse riding in Hyde Park from stables just the other side of the park in Bayswater. Little Venice canal boats, will take you to Camden for a different shopping experience. Portobello Road is a must on a Friday or Saturday, not just for antique collectors, it is a wonderful day out for all the family and you cannot fail to enjoy the atmosphere.

A quirky home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Yvonne’s flat is beautifully located just 4mins walk from Gloucester Station where three lines will take you everywhere. It’s a basement flat, cosy and well fitted out with lovely renovated rooms with loads of character. The bed is super comfortable and the kitchen has every imaginable appliance. It’s also well stocked with cooking utensils and the Waitrose and Tesco Express stores at the entrance to the station have all the ingredience for a gourmet home cooked meal after a big day of exploring.

Was a great flat in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The flat was great, just a heads up on one item is the second bedroom is connected via a closet to the main bedroom in order to enter the bathroom. This might be am inconvenience for some. The other bed is a bit uncomfortable for adults as it is a spring mattress, but would likely be great for children.

The place was beautifully maintained and the location was stellar.
