Welcome to my spacious (500sqft/50sqm) ground floor flat which is part of an original red brick Victorian townhouse in a residential part of West Kensington. With two well connected tube stations within 5 mins walk, all of London is really accessible
The flat, which has high ceiling throughout, consists of a light and airy double bedroom with double bed and comfortable therapeutic mattress. There is ample storage, an en-suite bathroom with a shower and bathtub, an additional separate guest toilet, a bright and cheery fully fitted kitchen which gives on to a spacious reception room which has a good sized double sofa bed and dining space. In addition there is a foldable baby cot for those traveling with a young child
The flat is very close and equidistant to both Baron’s Court tube station (Piccadilly line, District and Circle line) and West Kensington tube station (District and Circle line), as well as all major bus routes meaning you can be in the centre of London (Oxford street, Piccadilly) within 20 mins.
The apartment is very close to Kensington High Street, Notting Hill, Knightsbridge and Chelsea. And is walking distance from the Kensington Olympia Exhibition Center and the Earls Court Exhibition Center - which can make it ideal for exhibition and events visitors.
