A delightful two-storey mews house with country-house decor in one of London's most prestigious residential areas close to Holland Park and Notting Hill.
Holland Park is an exclusive residential area of imposing period terraces next to the charming park from which it takes its name. The 54-acre park includes flowering borders, majestic trees, woodland full of wildlife, a serene Japanese garden and even some peacocks, as well as play and sports areas and a café. A short walk from the house is Notting Hill Gate, one of the most popular and cosmopolitan parts of London providing a great range of interests for aficionados of shopping, dining and the finer things of life. Also the home of the famous Portobello Road antiques market. Easy travel links to Oxford Street, the West End, Knightsbridge and all parts of the city.
A pretty mews house in a quiet cobbled street with two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a small balcony. Not suitable for young children.
Traditional English country-house decor with choice antique furniture and lots of colour.
A mews is a unique feature of the historic residential areas of London, a lane of smaller buildings that runs along the back of a grand terrace, originally designed to house coaches and horses and those who looked after them. Many mews houses have been converted into delightful homes that benefit from being off the main streets but still in the heart of an exclusive neighbourhood. In this one the ground floor has become a haven of comfort and colour, with an inviting sitting area near the front window around the ornamental marble fireplace, and an elegantly arranged dining area by the kitchen. Flowers take pride of place in the richly-toned colour scheme and several choice antique pieces showcase interesting objets d’art and family treasures. The country-house look is completed by a varied collection of paintings and portrait miniatures, not excluding a few whimsical touches like the see-through dining chairs! TV and VCR provided.
Adjacent to the dining area is a practical kitchen fitted with all the usual appliances including a gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is a separate utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer.
The bedrooms are on the first floor off a spacious landing. The master bedroom has a king size (5' x 6'6) antique bed plus a dressing area with good wardrobe space and a large en-suite bathroom. It also has access to a wisteria-draped balcony with table and chairs, a discreet vantage point for watching what’s happening in the mews below. The second bedroom has twin beds and some charming Victorian furniture as well as excellent cupboard space.
The generously sized en-suite master bathroom continues the country-house style with its cream paintwork, marble surfaces and more antique treasures set against vivid cherry pink walls. It has double wash basins, a tub with hand held shower and a loo. The second bathroom has a wash basin, a shower cubicle with a power shower and a loo.
This is a very smart residential area with grand white mansions and wide leafy streets. Bordering on Notting Hill and Kensington is Holland Park, which gives this area its name.
This is one of the prettiest parks in London and in the summer is home to open air opera. As rich attracts rich, the neighbourhoods to the west of Kensington, such as Holland Park, developed into very exclusive places to live. Home from Home have many Holland Park apartments on our books

We absolutely LOVED our stay at this house! It's a bit of a leap of faith booking the flat from overseas, as you don't really know if the company is legitimate or not, but we couldn't have been more pleased with it.
My friend and I had a wonderful time, in part due to getting to stay in such an awesome flat! If we go back we'll likely try to book the same place. Please pass along our gratitude to the owners.

We loved the flat and the area it was in. It was just right for the four of us. I would recommend HFH to others!

I have already recommended Home from Home to my friends - we are expats living in Moscow with many many of us travelling back to the UK at every chance we get!!
