Welcome to my 2 bedroom home! Looking for a beautifully furnished home on a peaceful residential street, but which is also very close by to all the hustle and bustle of Portobello Market? Look no further! This apartment is only a 5 minute walk to Westbourne Park tube station which is on the Circle and Hammersmith & City line. These lines provide direct links to London's famous sights such as The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. The apartment will always be professionally cleaned for guests.
My two bedroom, one bathroom apartment has been decorated to a very high standard throughout - you are going to love staying here!
There is a contemporary open-plan living and dining area. This area is very bright and spacious as there are ceiling to floor bay windows. There is a comfy designer sofa and two further armchairs so you will have plenty of options to put your feet up and relax after a long day of sightseeing. The sofa is by well-known designer David Collins (see an article about him here: https://www.mrporter.com/journal/journal_issue167/7#5)! There is also a TV for guests to use which has Freesat (240 channels). However, I have a sneaking suspicion that you might not even have time for the TV given the amazing location of the apartment and all the things there are to see and do in the area!
The kitchen is also very contemporary in style and even has a breakfast bar and stools for you to enjoy your breakfast at. The kitchen is very high spec and all equipment is either AEG or Bosch. It comes with all the mod-cons that you might expect such as a toaster and kettle. There will also be plenty of tea, coffee and sugar for guests to use so that you can make yourself a traditional British cuppa.
There are two bedrooms in the apartment; one king-sized and one double bedroom. Both bedrooms have stand alone wardrobes which provide good storage space for guests to use and store their belongings in. The curtains and blinds in the bedrooms are also all hand-made. The beds will also always be freshly made with 5* star hotel standard linens and there are extra pillows in the drawers beneath the beds.
Finally, the bathroom is also very modern and has a bath and a shower. Fresh fluffy towels and all the essential toiletries such as shampoo, shower gel and hand soap will also be provided to ensure guests have a comfortable stay in London.
The entire apartment is available for guests.
