St James is the London of your dreams. As venerable location as it's possible to find, your neighbours are the Prime Minister and the Queen, and the greatest disturbance will be the clip clop of hooves at the Changing of The Guard.
Buckingham Gate is a historic street moments from the Palace, surround by cobbled back streets, upon which gentlemen in Saville Row suits hurry past on the way to their clubs, lit by the murky yellow glare of wrought iron street lamps. The exterior may be picture-book Victorian, but inside, you’ll find a modern and smart place to begin your own fairytale romance.
Your host is an international businessman. He has properties all across the world, but none, we’ll warrant, with neighbours quite like this…
Buckingham Gate occupies the lower ground floor of a period building, resplendent in red brick; inside, you’ll discover a sleek, minimalist home. The open plan living space features a toffee brown leather sofa, which glows sweetly against the original windows and warm wooden floor. Switch on the wall-mounted flat screen TV that hangs over the art deco fireplace, or pop the kettle on in the up-to-date kitchen.
The patio terrace, with its large table and rather stylish outdoor seating, can be accessed through the patio doors from the cosy double bedroom. Inside, you’ve a writing desk, or, if your work for the day is done, you may just wish to stretch out in front of the TV upon our crisp luxury bed linen. For your ablutions, you’ve an ensuite, and a larger family bathroom, both filled with our scrummy White Company toiletries.
If you wish to take a turn about the lawn, you’ve Green Park and St James Park from which to choose. Drop in on Buckingham Palace at the end of the road, or nip across the lawns to Fortnum and Masons for your dinner. Nearby Victoria positively heaves with bars and restaurants, or nip down to Westminster, up to Mayfair or across to Piccadilly; most of London’s hottest spots are within a short walk of your front door.
Additional amenities include: video game console, iron & ironing board, hob, toiletries, cafetiere, music player, hairdryer, onefinestay iphone, barbeque.TripAdvisor property ID 2763696...Read more
