Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Kensington - Stadium Street Chelsea

Wonderful Sunny 1 Double Bed Relaxed Home In Fashionable Chelsea With Garden.

This is a new, beautifully renovated charming one double bedroom quiet ground floor home with all it’s original features intact. It has a bright, elegant reception room with dining table for 6, large T.V. and WiFi. There is a large sunny separate fully equipped kitchen. Both reception room and kitchen have sliding folding oak doors fully opening up the rooms onto the sunny private patio garden where you can have a candlelit supper on a warm evening.

The location of this property makes the flat quite unique: It is in a very up-market area of London, just off the fabulously expensive and renowned Cheyne Walk (runs along the river) and literally minutes from the legendary Kings Road and some of the best shops, cafes, bars and pubs. If you enjoy walking, there are some great walks on both sides of the river and the beautiful Battersea Park is a 10 minute walk away. In the summer it is great fun ambling around watching groups playing softball and having picnics or using the Park restaurant and enjoying concerts. There is a docking station with Barclays (Boris) bikes to hire just around the corner from the flat. There are very many docking stations around London where you can drop the bikes off once you are tired!

The bus service on the Kings Road takes you everywhere you will want to go and it is such a fun way of seeing London from the top deck! But if you prefer taxis, The Victoria & Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum are a 10-minute taxi ride away, while London's major tourist attractions, such as Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Big Ben, Tower of London and exclusive Knightsbridge/Sloane avenue shopping are 15 minutes from the flat by taxi. The nearby (5 minutes) Imperial Wharf Station has direct trains to Clapham Junction (three minutes) and Westfield Shopping Centre (six minutes). The links from Clapham Junction take you directly to Victoria (Buckingham Palace) in five minutes and 45 minutes to Windsor Castle. Imperial Wharf also connects in one stop/five mins to West Brompton which gives access via the District line to the whole City.

Transport to and from the airports is very easy.

HEATHROW: A 6 minute bus (C3) or a taxi to Earls Court tube station and then a direct tube to Heathrow taking approx 38 minutes.

GATWICK: A 9 minute taxi ride to Victoria train station and then the Gatwick express which runs every 15 minutes and takes 30 minutes.

Just around the corner from the flat is the Chelsea Harbour Hotel and Marina. It has a gym, swimming pool and Spa which you can use for a charge per day or for a month (worth it if you stay for more than 4 days!). It also has an elegant bar/restaurant where you can sit on the balcony overlooking the boats in the Marina. Next to the hotel is the very well known Chelsea Harbour Design Centre with all it's fabulous home design/fabric shops + coffee/snack bars. Two minutes away are two antique/furniture auction houses. One of them, Lots Road Auction House, is very well known in London and has an auction every Sunday with viewings Wednesday evening through till Sunday.

A minute's walk from the flat is the famous 606 jazz club where you can have supper or a drink whilst listening to an eclectic selection of musicians.

If you would like to play golf, there is a Public Course in the beautiful surroundings of Richmond Park. An 18 hole and 9 hole full size courses. Weekends should be booked in advance.

There is also a course at Cobham in Surrey called the Silvermere Golf and Leisure Ltd. It is approx 17 miles by car or by train from Imperial Wharf/Clapham Junction.

This apartment is in the perfect location for famous international cultural and sporting events such as:

• St Patrick's Day

• Virgin Money London Marathon

• RHS Chelsea Flower Show

• Royal Ascot

• FA Cup Final 2016

• Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships

• Hampton Court Palace Flower Show

About Ann Louise Stebbing

The flat took a year to renovate but since finishing it a short while ago, we have moved to the south coast most of the time as we love sailing and living beside the water. We will still really enjoy coming up to London when the flat is empty. Having lived in London most of our adult lives, we love coming back to visit friends and potter around our 'village'.

Ann Louise Stebbing purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Ann Louise Stebbing chose Kensington and Chelsea

The flat is very well positioned in Chelsea as it is close to all amenities but is in a very quiet village-like peaceful part of Chelsea with the River Thames so very close. There is a small pretty park around the corner with the bigger park - Battersea Park - close by.

What makes this apartment unique

Home from home...settle straight in and relax as quickly as we do...make a cup of tea or pour a cold glass of wine and sit in the garden with all the doors folded back.

Willmar, Minnesota

It was a fantastic place to rent. Really enjoyed staying there!

  • 5 of 5

Everything on the listing was just as expected. No surprises. The appartment had everything we needed. It is very cute. We were lucky to have great weather and had breakfast everyday with the doors all open on the patio. What a nice way to start the day. As I said, the appartment was perfect but, the equally important part was that the owner and contact people were just great during the whole aspect of the renting and staying there. They were extremely accommodating. They had great communication and customer service. We would highly recommend renting to others and for sure would stay there again ourselves.

It was everything we wanted. Great location, cosy, everything works, elegant, tiny but sunny patio. We found the responses to a few little issues (we locked the keys in the flat) to bequick and friendly. We hope to come back soon.

Lovely comfortable property

  • 5 of 5

The flat is well located close to public transport, Shopping and restaurants. With this it is very quiet area and safe to walk around. It is easy to feel like a local. There is a hospital close by for emergency - if you ever need one. unfortunately we did need this. The booking process was good and any concerns we had while we were there were sorted very quickly. It is comfortable and lovely when the sun comes out. Could have stayed longer. would definitely go back.

Great Flat Near Kings Road!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay in London, partly because of this property. It is very nicely furnished and had everything we needed and more! The outside courtyard was the perfect place to drink our morning tea and coffee - we were lucky to have warm sunny weather for our few days there. Very walkable to transportation and Kings Road. We would definitely recommend this property and would stay at again next time we're in London!

Cozy and SUPER convenient

  • 5 of 5

After an amazing Rick Steves' London tour we wanted to stay in London and wind down to revisit spots we thought we needed more time to explore or take a day trip outside of London. This was the perfect place to do all that! This flat was conveniently located to multiple bus stops, the Thames, a food co-op (open to the public), and a neighborhood park. The kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and living room areas had wonderful, cozy and functional touches that mades us feel welcome and at home immediately. The kitchen was well appointed with appropriate utensils and extras (spices, oils, tea, coffee, etc.) that made it easy to prepare meals there w/ groceries from the food co-op. The living room had sliding windows/walls (they lock!) that would have been nice to use in warmer weather and would have created a lovely indoor/outdoor space. The bedroom was spacious and very quiet despite facing the street as the building is on a quiet street. One point worth noting, as another reviewer mentioned, is the bathroom. It IS small, but well designed; the toilet and sink are a little tight, but the shower had no issue accommodating my my 6'2" husband. We spent the least amount of time in that room, and didn't really affect our experience. Ann Louise also had some great information about the area and was very attentive to our needs (super easy to communicate w/ if we had questions before and during our stay). My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed staying here and would not hesitate to stay here again the next time we are in London. Further, I would absolutely recommend this property to a friend.

Our stay was very comfortable and met (exceeded) our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Ann Louise and the service team were responsive and made our stay a pleasure. The location is perfect for walking and commuting around London. There are restaurants and shops nearby. Buying the groceries we needed was easy and a short distance from the flat. The neighborhood was quiet and we slept comfortably on the king sized bed. The living room provided plenty of space to relax and the high speed internet was super-fast. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and the outside terrance was a nice connection to the outdoors. The bathroom is on the tight side but did not present any problems. It is well-fitted and the shower quite large. We don't spend a lot of time in the bathroom and all the other rooms were spacious and comfortable for us. We recommend the flat and plan to stay again on our stays in London in the future.
