This Kensington vacation home is PERFECT in every regard. This stunning house for up to 7 people is the ideal accommodation for a larger group traveling to London. It is located in a private mews behind locked gates with easy access to both the Cromwell Road as well as to the Earl’s Court Road. Our guests adore this neighborhood of late Regency architecture and early Victorian townhouses: one painted pink, one painted yellow, one painted blue, one painted lavender. This very high level residential area is one of the most sought after districts due to the proximity to central London and to all transportation – and certainly the charm and beauty play a big part. Transportation is perfect with both the Earls Court Tube Station and the Gloucester Road Tube Station within easy reach; buses and taxis are readily available. The great museums including the Victoria and Albert and the Natural History Museum are less than a mile away – you can walk there in 20 minutes or take a bus or the tube. Knightsbridge with all the fine shopping is three tube stops from this property; Piccadilly Circus and all the theaters up Shaftesbury Avenue are 15 minutes by tube – all are on the Piccadilly Line, the most useful of all the train lines through this magnificent city. This is an amazing property; large vacation rentals of this standard are difficult to find in central London.
The mews house itself is on three levels, like all period mews residences. On the first floor, there is an open-plan LOUNGE/KITCHEN with table and chairs, bar and stools, sofa and chairs, and flat screen television. The KITCHEN has dishwasher, oven, hob, fridge/freezer, and fully stocked cupboards with dishes, glasses, etc. The washer/dryer is in the small garage attached to the house. On the second floor (first floor Britain), there is a very large MASTER BEDROOM with UK King size bed and an EN SUITE BATHROOM with shower over the tub, hand basin, and loo – all of the finest quality. There is a SECOND BEDROOM with a double size bed – a very beautiful room, and a SECOND BATHROOM with shower stall, sink, and loo. On the top floor (3rd floor US, 2nd floor Britain), there is a very large FAMILY ROOM/BEDROOM with two single beds that can put together as UK King. There is also a pull-out sofa, small balcony with small table and two chairs.
So, you are staying in a private mews with all the advantages of space, residential feel, and yet amazing proximity to all that London offers. It is a welcoming house that sleeps 7, decorated and designed for a family. If even more space is needed, we have another property 3-31 Redfield Lane in the same gated area. This vacation rental is exclusively offered with a 5 night minimum by London Connection and books very quickly. Don’t delay. This South Kensington mews is the perfect property. We love it. Wonderful standard throughout. Portable air conditioning is available by request, upon availability. IDEAL.
