Perks for the Parents

A charming period townhouse with boutique hotel style and a pretty, private garden in leafy West Kensington. It sleeps 6 + 1. Set on a peaceful residential street, it provides the perfect mix of city buzz and relaxation with West Kensington tube station, bustling Hammersmith and the scenic River Thames a short walk away. Well-stocked bookshelves, handsome furniture and cozy living spaces provide a traditional English feel with plenty of space to kick back and relax after a busy date out exploring. The light-filled primary bedroom is on a floor of its own for additional privacy and has a kingsize bed with its own marble bathroom and vintage tub. The residence is a short walk from local cafes, pubs and grocery stores. For those wishing to explore London’s treasures, the nearest station is just a 10-minute walk away with trains to the chic boutiques and restaurants of Sloane Square, South Kensington’s world-famous museums, and the wider city.

Why Kids Love it

With 4 floors to spread out over and an enclosed patio garden, there’s more than enough space for all the family to find some of their own. Kids will love the snug area of the living room with its comfy sofas and a wall mounted TV for watching movies or catching up with a latest series. The sociable open plan kitchen has a large dining table ideal for evening games as well as mealtime gatherings, with doors that open out to the garden for easy inside/outside living. For active kids, the local park is 2 minutes’ walk away with a playground, skate park and basketball court. Soccer fans may enjoy having Stamford Bridge, home to Chelsea FC, a 20 minute walk away, with live matches scheduled throughout the year. It’s a fast tube/subway ride (or 10-minute drive) to Kensington for the city’s best family-friendly museums, as well as the Diana memorial playground at Kensington gardens.

Style Notes

Charming townhouse. This stylish residence blends sophistication with creative flair to present a welcoming home full of character. A warm neutral palette is used throughout with colorful and playful design injected through fabrics, furnishings, and artworks. Antique pieces add an elegant touch, complimented by bold contemporary prints and textiles. Large period windows and French style doors flood light in throughout, creating a relaxed, roomy space that is a joy to unwind in. We love the open plan kitchen-diner with doors that can be flung open to the pretty garden patio. With 2 dining tables to choose from and a kitchen island with bar stool seating, it’s the perfect family hang out.

Kensington & Chelsea, London

Hyde Park, Harrods and Her Majesty

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has a certain cachet. It’s where you’ll find Buckingham Palace, Sloane Square, the King’s Road, Harrods and many of the most upmarket stores and areas of the city. For kids, Hyde Park is a must-do, whether you go boating on the Serpentine on summer or enjoy the kid-friendly cafés around it. It’s a central area very well connected with the rest of the city by bus and Tube.
