A stones throw from Portobello road and minutes walk from Kensington Gardens, our airy little mews house has an open-plan kitchen, dining area and two bedrooms including a roof terrace upstairs. A great experience of London living for a small family!
WHERE? Our home is situated in a small, quiet and friendly residential street off Nottinghill. The property is south facing and very charming. The facade of the house is draped in a mature wisteria which attracts the attention of passers-by in the Spring.
GROUND FLOOR: consists of a large open-plan kitchen/dining room area with a large skylight, a small living room with piano.
FIRST FLOOR: consists of two bedrooms and a shower/bathroom. Annexed to the master bedroom is a small private roof terrace to enjoy warm summer evenings.
Full use of the kitchen and living space. This includes use of a coffee machine, dishwasher and washing machine as well as one off-street parking space directly in front of the house (for a VW GOLF-sized car only).
A family member will be there to welcome you to the place, show you round and explain any essentials. We will happily answer questions on the area and leave suggestions to make your stay as fulfilling as possible.
CHILDREN WELCOME: This home is most suitable for a family of two adults and two children, one of which would sleep in a toddler cot. Stair gates are installed and play pen is provided. The front door is at street level, ideal if you are a pram/buggy user.
This is our home so we wish for it to be respected as such. Please leave it in the same condition you found it in.
ABOUT US: We are a very loving family of three: James, Sofie and Clara (10 months old). James is a a children's doctor at St Mary's Paddington, Sofie works for Sotheby's Auction House but is currently on maternity leave, and Clara is a lively little toddler! We love all that London has to offer, but also like to retreat to the peace and quiet of home with our beloved piano and roof terrace. We can't live without very good food, laughter, dancing in our kitchen, plenty of outdoor sports, and family prayer.
WHY DO WE AIRBNB?: When we are away, we like to rent out our home to provide some extra income and to allow others an authentic experience of living in one of London's best neighborhoods!
