Flat Description:

Traditional & luxurious raised ground floor flat in a beautiful Victorian building around the Onslow Gardens square in South Kensington, with direct access to the private gardens off the large open sitting room. Decorated in a classic British style with beautiful antiques, lush fabrics and fine art throughout the flat, it is a one-of-a-kind luxury short let in London.

This holiday flat has a most impressive drawing room with a beautiful bay window directly out to the patio and communal gardens (for resident’s use only). All on one level and boasting several much-desired and not-often-found-together-in-London features (extra-large King bed, for one example, separate washer and dryer instead of a combo washer/dryer unit for another), this is a gem of a flat in a highly desired, well-located, busy, upscale, all-around-impressive area of London from which to base for an elegant, unique and perfect holiday.

The spacious living area of this unique London accommodation is large, comfortable, and bright with floor-to-ceiling French windows, tall ceilings and tons of light. There are two comfortable overstuffed sofas, a large coffee table, a bookcase, reading lamps and antique occasional chairs for extra seating. A flatscreen television and antique china hutch are located in one corner. A decorative fireplace, lots of art and shelves lined with interesting collections complete the thoughtfully arranged room.

Through the French double doors there is a small patio leading to the communal gardens beyond. This is a rare and perfectly London opportunity to enjoy the Royal garden squares.

A few steps from the living area are the kitchen dining area. The newly renovated kitchen is fully equipped with stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washer and fridge/freezer. Plenty of cabinets provide ample storage. All the modern conveniences are represented, including a rare separate washing machine and separate dryer, which are situated in a good size utility cupboard in the passage.

A nice glass-top table seats four in the tiled eat-in kitchen.


Master King EnSuite Bedroom:
Large master bedroom with extra-large California King bed and richly lined shelves full of books. The ensuite bathroom has a bathtub and hand-held shower.

Twin En Suite Bedroom:
Good size second bedroom with twin beds, storage and additional seating. The adjacent bathroom is also accessible to the King bedroom, and has a shower stall, wash basin and loo.


The nearest underground stops are  Gloucester (4-5 minutes) and South Kensington (5 – 6 minutes). The immediate neighborhood boasts some excellent food providers, markets, restaurants and take-away shops. Museums, Albert Hall, Hyde Park, Chelsea and Knightsbridge shopping are all within easy walking distance.

This is a perfect location in London for first time visitors and practically ex-pats alike. There is literally something for everyone in this area of South Kensington, with the rest of London’s fine features at your fingertips.
