Belgravia, simply, is London at its loftiest. Here, the townhouses stand taller, the little mews streets look sweeter and even the grass of the garden squares gleams that little bit greener. Which brings us to Orange Square. Not content with being an elegantly styled English home, this apartment is enlivened by cool eastern artefacts and jazzy pops of colour. The kitchen is a retro racing green, the sitting room a happy blend of both the decorous and the designer. Yes, you’ll spot a bit of everything here – not least when you hop outside. All of Sloane Square, South Ken and Knightsbridge are within an amble.
Marriage of styles
Your host heads up the family paper business, which happens to be one of the oldest and most distinguished in the country. He also owns a home in the Lake District, where he loves to hike the hills and cycle those long country roads.
The sitting room here is spacious and suffused with light, which filters through sash windows. Watch Belgravia bustle merrily below, or subside into one of three squidgy sofas. You’ve a TV, elegant artwork and a chic table accompanied by crimson chairs. Why not zoom into the racing green kitchen to fuel yourself with a coffee, or prepare something scrumptious for supper.
The master bedroom is effortlessly elegant, with its eastern artwork, super king size bed and a playful, yet refined, palette playing in harmony. You’ve also an enticing ensuite laid out with our White Company toiletries, as well as a superbly sophisticated twin bedroom and a bathroom deftly tiled in cream and dainty blue.
In with the new
You’ll find Pimlico Road just downstairs, dotted with delicatessens, interior design shops and antiquers. Turn one way for Sloane Square and the splendour of the Kings Road, or turn the other for Knightbridge’s truly excellent eateries. You’ve also Knightsbridge (for Harrods), South Kensington (for the Natural History Museum) and Battersea Park (for a thoroughly good picnic). The tube from Sloane Square to Oxford Circus takes just over ten minutes.
Additional amenities include: concierge, concierge service, 24 hour on call maintenance, hob (gas), communications/internet, nespresso coffee machine, entertainment.TripAdvisor property ID 2768277...Read more
