Modern, light and airy, apartment in the heart of South Kensington.
If you like a touch of luxury you will enjoy this modern apartment with its sleek contemporary features as well as essential home comforts such as cable TV and wireless internet. Great location too; the apartment sits in the middle of South Kensington, an area famous for its fantastic museums with beautiful Hyde Park close by – everything you need is within easy walking distance.
The property sleeps four in one double bedroom and a comfortable sofa-bed in the living area. There is one full bathroom and an additional loo. Wireless internet is provided. Located on the second floor (no lift), this flat welcomes you with a clean, modern hallway with dark wooden floors and white walls.
At the end of the hallway there is a large open plan living/dining/kitchen area (20ft3 x 15ft10, 6.2m x 4.6m) which is spacious and light, owing to the large windows, white walls and simple contemporary furniture – it’s quiet too as it’s away from the main roads. The room is modern yet comfortable, with a large stone coloured sofa (which also folds out into a double sofa-bed), flat-screen TV with cable channels and a radio with iPod dock.
Dark wooden floors, a glossy white dining table with six chairs and a breakfast bar complete the overall stylish look. The kitchen area blends in perfectly with its ultra modern white surfaces and warm brown walls. Here you will find everything you will need for a self-catering stay: oven, hob, microwave, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.
If the sun is shining then you might like to use the private terrace which is one floor down – this is a pleasant area which attracts the morning sun, with decking and a large table and four chairs. It has a great Mary Poppins feel overlooking the neighbouring rooftops – you can’t get more London than that! The master bedroom (11ft7 x 9ft8, 3.6m x 3m) shares the modern theme with white walls, cool stone coloured carpet, mirrored bedside tables and plump queen-size bed (6ft6 x 5ft) – there’s plenty of space for your clothes in the fitted wardrobes too. There is also a good-sized modern en-suite bathroom with stone floor, large walk-in shower, basin and loo. The second loo is located next to the living area – and is a modern room with basin and loo.
South Kensington is a great area, not only does it have many attractions within easy walking distance, but it also has great transport links to take you across London in a jiffy (that’s British slang for quickly!).
Gloucester Road underground station (Circle, District and Piccadilly lines) is located just 5 minutes from the property alongside a large grocery store (Waitrose) several traditional English pubs and a number of decent restaurants too. The Natural History Museum, Science Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum are all within 10-15 minutes walking distance – all well worth a visit and all free of charge. 10-15 minutes in the opposite direction will take you to High Street Kensington for shopping, restaurants and bars and Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park for a piece of tranquillity in the city.
