Looking up at the brick townhouses of Pimlico today, you would scarcely believe that only a few centuries ago the area was a marginalised marshland. Luckily for those in the know, this neighbourhood keeps quiet about its many accolades and to this day often goes overlooked. If you are fortunate enough to stumble upon it the regal architecture, elegant parks, and lines of terraced stucco-fronted houses will whisk you back to a previous age. Meanwhile the village-like atmosphere, so rarely found in London, will come as a surprise seeing as you are within easy distance of London’s most sought after attractions such as Sloane Square, Tate Britain and Buckingham Palace. After all its streets were enough to house Winston Churchill, who famously admitted “my tastes are simple: I am easily satisfied with the best,” so you can rest assured there must be something here worth a second look.
Living and Eating Areas:
Walk up to a beautiful period building and step inside our two-bedroom holiday apartment. The interior is all city sophistication and comfortable glamour that effortlessly matches the elegant streets outside. Spacious and exquisitely decorated, this is a property that gives you a warm welcome after a long day of exploring the Capital. Expect an open-plan living area with soft pales shades, while the ornamental fireplace and handful of lamps add warmth and character. A circular dining table generously seats 4 people; perfect for a family game or some home dining. A pair of fabulous double doors lead you to a fully equipped kitchen with all the modern appliances you would expect. Testament to the care that was taken over the design, there is a handy breakfast bar for more casual munching. And we love to save the best for last: there is a private terrace garden, with a BBQ to boot, just to add one last luxury to the list. With the comfort of a country cottage, a prime location and the glamour of a city pad our Belgrave home is a real find if ever there was one.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
The main bedroom has a comfortable king size bed (5 ft) and access onto the terrace, and lovely double doors that bathe the room in light. There are hefty curtains as well (so you won’t be disturbed if you want to sleep in). A second bedroom can be made up as two twins or a double.
The bathrooms, in keeping with the rest of the property, have been tastefully designed. The first has a bath with a built-in shower head, basin, cosmetic mirror and sink. A second bathroom has a shower, toilet and basin.
Lower ground floor with one short flight of external stairs.
When you are ready to venture out a plethora of activities await on your doorstep. Perhaps take the scenic route through St James’s Park to Trafalgar Square. Admire the, now listed, surrounding architecture that was designed by Thomas Cubbitt in the mid-nineteenth century, as you wander down to the riverfront. Travelling along the water’s edge you will come to the refreshing green space of Victoria Tower Gardens, and soon after Big Ben, Parliament Square and Westminster Pier.
Local amenities such as grocery stores and ATMs are close by, as well as a diverse array of restaurants and cafes. Chimes offers hearty English food in a cosy and delightful setting, or perhaps try Goya a lively Spanish Tapas bar. Whatever your mood you’ll find it nearby. There is a fantastic Farmer’s market in Orange Square on Saturday mornings- great to gather supplies for a picnic or for a home cooked feast.
Don’t forget you are close to the theatres and high-end fashion of Knightsbridge and Chelsea. They are only a half hour walk for the light footed, or short trip on a bus or tube for those who wish to take their exercise inside the shops instead of on the way!
Victoria or Pimlico tube stations are a quick stroll away and offer fast connections to the rest of the city.

We were very pleased with Kate and Ivy Lettings. The property was exactly what was advertised. Kate was very helpfull with the booking and made arrangements for a car to pick us up from Heathrow. We were 2 blocks from Pimlico tube station where we started our adventures every morning.
