Rambling roses, stacked dressers, delicate pastels and long afternoons with a good book… if you’re aching for some bucolic charm, then Blithfield Street offers you the very essence of cottage life, and all right in the very centre of London. With enough contemporary touches to ensure that you’re never less than perfectly comfortable, and an aesthetic that’s as English as bone china, this home is the ideal destination for those who delight in life’s simpler pleasures. Step beyond your tree-lined street to find you’re just a handful of minutes away from the museums, Kensington High Street, and the pastures of Hyde Park. The countryside never felt so very close to home.
Your hostess is a semi-retired teacher specialising in dyslexia. Her husband works in the city, and they met at university. That was over twenty years ago, now, with their children grown up, they’ve plenty of time to sail, ski and play tennis.
From the front, this is a truly idyllic Georgian mews house, in all its original glory. But your hosts have embraced the modern, and thus, the back wall of the ground floor has been replaced with glass, bringing sunlight streaming into the kitchen. Bright and smart, yet with the wholesome atmosphere of a home well-loved, you’ve snuggly checked couches, shelves of books, and, outside, a simply gorgeously petite patio festooned with foliage. Upstairs, you’ll find a family bathroom and three double bedrooms. The master bedroom’s antique furniture stands proudly against walls painted in the gentlest yellow, while, by contrast, the ensuite is fresh and up-to-the-minute. And best of all is the little roof terrace, with views out across the city sky.
Back to it
Feed the squirrels in Hyde Park, take a boat out on the Serpentine or hole up in one of the scrumptious cafes on Kensington High Street. Here, you’ll find all sorts of shops, as well as some of London’s best bars and restaurants. You’re within an easy walk of the museums and Knightsbridge, and the tube from Gloucester Road to Piccadilly Circus takes ten minutes.
Additional amenities include: concierge, concierge service, 24 hour on call maintenance, hob (gas), communications/internet, entertainment.TripAdvisor property ID 2765823...Read more
