Charming House in Central London
Our charming Regency house has recently been restored. It is in a very quiet residential road on the border of Notting Hill and Bayswater, close to the designer shops of Westbourne Grove and the famous Portobello Rd antiques market.
We are just around the corner from Queensway where there are two tube stations (Central, District and Circle lines) which means any part of central London is no more than 30 minutes away by tube. Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park is at the end of the road with the famous Princess Diana "Peter Pan" playground only 5 minutes away. Kensington Palace, Princess Diana's former home is in the grounds of Kensington Gardens and open to visitors. London's main museums and the Royal Albert Hall are a short walk away on the other side of the park. Skating and bowling is available in Queensway and the area is renowned for trendy celebrity restaurants, cafes and delis. Buses go direct to Oxford Circus.
The house is set back from the road with a pretty front garden. On the ground floor there is a large, gracious, double aspect drawing room. This room has satellite TV and a stereo. The eat-in kitchen in the bay window on the lower ground floor benefits from the morning sunshine. Miele appliances including dishwasher, washing machine, US-style fridge freezer and additional freezer, oven, steam oven, warming drawer, Quooker (for boiling water on tap) make domestic life as simple as possible. The kitchen opens onto a large dining room/playroom/entertaining room with seating for 8 people and a Bechstein upright tuned piano. There is also a guest cloakroom. Between the floors, a corridor leads out to the back garden where you can enjoy the afternoon sunshine and alfresco meals.
The master bedroom on the first floor opens onto a balcony with willow and bay trees. The master bed is Empire sized and has a TV/DVD set into the wall opposite. There is a separate bath and shower room and a study/bedroom with double bed.
On the second floor are two single bedrooms and a further bath and shower room. One of the bedrooms has an additional children's truckle bed and dollhouse.

Lovely House in the Heart of London
This good size house, very close to Hyde Park, is large and comfortable and ideally located to explore all of central and West London. Tube, bus, Boris bike are all very close but it's also pleasant to walk via Hyde Park. Very friendly and welcoming family and everything went very smoothly. We loved the piano too! Would love to return one day.”
London at my doorstep...
From the moment we arrived and the front door opened we knew we had arrived to a very special home. The four levels gave each of us privacy and the garden and kitchen on the first floor brought us all together. Each day we walked thru Hyde Park across the street past Kensington Palace & Gardens. You can walk to Kensington St. where we found the best restaurants, pubs and wonderful cupcake boutique. You can rent bicycles across the street for the day and you have easy access to all major London attractions. The Big Bus stops just down the block to enjoy hopping on and off through out London's attractions. We will love to come back to what feels like home away from home. Thank you Sophie & Peter for your gracious gift basket upon arrival. It would be such a pleasure to host you in our beach home Villa St. Tropez in Florida. Thank you for creating a perfect vacation for my family. Victoria ”
