We at London Connection believe that comfort, location, standard, and charm are the components which weave together to create the perfect vacation rental. Our team has just completed what we consider to be the ideal one-bedroom London flat. It is the penthouse in a restored early Victorian building containing four flats, all designed and offered by London Connection. We began by finding the best location in exclusive Mayfair where you are in the center so many things to do in London. A 3 minute walk down Clarges will take you to Piccadilly Street where you can hop on an open-top bus in front of the Ritz. You will notice how close you are to Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, the National Gallery, Covent Garden, Thames River, and the London Eye. Get on the Tube and head to Knightsbridge to shop at Harrods or to South Kensington with many of the best museums. You really are in the middle of everything!
The flat offered here was designed to be very cheerful, a bit exotic, filled with beautiful objects such as an 18th century grandfather clock, the American flag that flew over Eisenhower’s Grosvenor Square office on May 8 1945, an Edwardian display cabinet filled with beautiful Regency Derby porcelain, Persian rugs, Egyptian wall hangings, Georgian silver candelabra, a rare 19th century Indian brass charger, a wonderful Chinese figure of a Samurai, a pair of beautiful Victorian brass church candlesticks, a pair of French 1909 engravings of leopards, and a magnificent pair of Chinese decorative lamps. It is a magical setting, designed to be charming and very, very comfortable.
The LOUNGE has a blue sofa, a white comfort TV chair, a small writing area for the computer and phone connections, a glass dining table for four persons, a set of six red leather side chairs, a large coffee table for tea, magazines, guide books, and mail. Persian rugs cover the floor for your comfort. The KITCHEN has all machines: stove and hob, dishwasher, apartment refrigerator, kettles-plates-glasses-cups/saucers-flatware-pots/pans. The central hall leads to a HALF BATHROOM, giving visitors an additional loo and sink. Also in the hall is the LIFT which comes directly into the flat. Another door leads to the stairs in case you prefer to walk up four floors to the penthouse. The BEDROOM has a UK King size bed which is very comfortable. There are bedside reading lights and lots of cushions for your additional comfort. Lots of closet space will offer plenty of space for two people visiting this beautiful flat. The MASTER BATHROOM has a bath tub with shower over, sink, loo, and two very large mirrors — all with the additional comfort of a heated stone floor. The washing machine allows visitors to pack with more options. The entire flat is very bright with lots of windows and direct afternoon sunshine which is very welcome in London. For two people traveling to London in this standard, this is the perfect vacation apartment. It is a very creative space where obvious charm and beauty exude. “Try it; you will love it.” I have a personal relationship with this flat as I designed it and want to share it with you.
If you are traveling as a group, you could have up to FOUR COUPLES stay in the same building. See our other properties: 1-119 Clarges, 1-219 Clarges, and 1-319 Clarges. They all have air-conditioning and the same floor plan, but each has its own color scheme and decor. FABULOUS. Wonderful for family, friends, or London short term corporate housing.
