About this listing
My comfortable and warm flat is the ideal launch pad to explore London. Located in Kensington & Chelsea, outstanding transport links; arrive anywhere in London fast with no hassle. The garden offers extra depth and tranquility. Oak floor. Enjoy!
Modern, Well Equipped, 3 Bedroom Flat in Central London - Sleeps up to 8. Half a block from Earls Court Tube, Zone 1.
Come and stay in our fantastic London flat, wonderfully located!
The property itself is a recently modernised lower ground floor flat. Just installed new solid oak floor throughout the flat. Windows are all double glazed. It features a spacious master bedroom with a convenient en-suite shower room and a second double bedroom. We have also recently converted a utility room to provide a quirky and cosy little single bedroom, ideal for a single guest or perhaps one of the kids! We also provide a 3-seater sofa-bed in the lounge, allowing the flat to sleep 2 extra if needs-be. The main bathroom is also recently refurbished, with both bath and shower available.
The main living area is a large open plan space, featuring a fully equipped, modern kitchen with washing machine, dining table & chairs, and a comfortable lounge area with sofas and television.
Outside is a lovely intimate garden (70 square meters), with table, chairs, parasol and even a barbecue - ideal for relaxing at the end of a long day in the city (provided the British weather behaves!). There are outdoor electrical sockets and lights in the garden.
Wifi via fibre optic broadband is also provided (50M - Virgin Media). Please note neither the flat nor garden is wheelchair accessible.
The area is well lit and well covered by CCTV. Walking alone late at night is commonplace.
The flat is located on a main road so you can expect some noise in the front bedrooms. We have mitigated this with double glazing in the small bedroom and triple glazing in the master bedroom. You soon become accustomed to the hustle and bustle of London life.
William is my site manager and he helps with the day to day running. He is very open and is ready and willing to answer your questions during your stay.
The entire flat is solely for you including the garden.
There are a couple of store rooms under the pavement which you will see on the floor plan that are not for your use otherwise everything else is.
Interaction with guests
I communicate mostly by email as I spend a lot of time abroad. My site manager however is the next door neighbour. He is on hand to be asked questions during your stay as well as the briefing he gives you upon arrival.

The payment can be made through the resolutions tool under "request an extra service"

We installed (January 2014) a new boiler, Glow worm Ultracom2 30CXI Combi Boiler. This provides a highly efficient hot water and central heating system for the most demanding of British winters. The flat has a NEST thermostat in the entryway. As a default the temperature of the flat is set to be 21 degrees Centigrade at 9am and 21 degrees at 6 pm. You can adjust the thermostat manually as you see fit.
