Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Small but stylish, this apartment is ideally situated in fashionable Kensington. You'll find it tucked down a private mews, just a short walk from Kensington Gardens and the shops, restaurants, and cafes on the high street. It's up two flights of narrow outdoor stairs, but once inside, you'll appreciate the bright living space. The sophisticated design fits in seamlessly with this posh postcode. We're particularly fond of the banquette dining area, which makes tucking into breakfast a chic affair. Even with sloped ceilings and steep steps, it's a fantastic option for couples keen to be close to everything.

    The sloped ceilings in the bedroom may not be suitable for taller guests. The shower in the eaves is also quite small.

    Please respect the neighbours and keep noise to a minimum between 10pm and 8am.

Local guide


About Kensington

Affluent and incredibly central, Kensington is a great base for exploring London on foot. Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park are on your doorstep and so are the Victoria and Albert, Science, and Natural History Museums. The streets are attractive and well maintained (grand, white stucco facades aplenty) and your neighbours will be a wealthy, conservative set. Lots of positives but probably not the place to let your hair down.
