Sitting on the 15th floor, this apartment gives breath-taking views of the Capital as well as a clean, comfortable place to stay. A wooden-floored entry hall leads into a spacious, open-plan living / dining / sitting room.
In the kitchen you will modern appliances and equipment, the kitchen has everything you'll need to make meals from home. We have a cupboard full of spices, herbs and condiments. You have plenty of plates, pots, pans, glasses, cutlery etc to cook and dine very well. We also supply teas and coffee as well as milk, sugar, sweetener etc. If you have any special requests please ask.
There is also a breakfast bar with 2 bar stools for you to enjoy a chat while someone is cooking 😊
For all the coffee lovers we have a French coffee press.
The living area has a large leather sofa which comfortably seats 3 people and two very cosy arm chairs with a foot stool. There are 4 lamps so you can set the lighting to your preference. This leads to the balcony area where we have laid artificial grass on the decking area so you can step outside bare foot and experience the magnificent London skyline while being 15 floors high (50 meters). You also have a table and two chairs for you to enjoy a drink while admiring London in all its glory.
The lounge gets the sun from the afternoon all the way to sunset so you can bask in the heat and top up your tan. There are also black out blinds in the living area should you want to block out the sun.
Please note there is no TV in the apartment. However, you have access to a very large residential lounge on the ground floor of the apartment block which has a TV and is equipped with comfortable sofas. Hopefully, a TV is not needed as you are on holiday and you’ll be out exploring the city 😊. The apartment has Wi-Fi so you can connect all your gadgets and watch your favorite shows on your laptop, tablet etc.
On to the bedrooms. We have a master bedroom which has a super king size bed where you and your partner can get lost on. There is also a nice glass table and comfortable chair for you to sit and relax. The bedroom has a large fitted wardrobe with plenty of space for your clothes. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom as well.
The second bedroom comes with a comfortable double bed. There is also plenty of wardrobe space as well as having a desk and ergonomic chair if you need to do some work and want to be in a different space then the living area. If you are coming with two kids they will easily sleep well on the double bed. However, if you want then to sleep separately then there is the large sofa in the living area (remember there are black out blinds so you won’t be disturbed by the daylight in the morning).
The building has a residents’ roof garden terrace where you can experience a 360 view of London. It has been designed with seating and small trees so it is a nice experience.
You have access to the apartment, communal areas and the rooftop terrace.
