This pristine Kensington penthouse offers the very best of residential living, with all the quality and service of a five-star hotel. There’s a 24-hour reception and concierge available, along with maid service and housekeeping, meaning you can truly switch off from the daily humdrum of life for a while. Inside, there’s a relaxed elegance that defines the space, with muted colours and luxurious finishes throughout. Nearly every room commands stunning views of Kensington’s rooftops, especially in the expansive living and dining area that’s complete with a modern, sparkling kitchen that’s ready for action. Though we wouldn’t blame you if you hung up your oven gloves entirely and ate out instead, because this is Michelin-star restaurant territory with Gordon Ramsay, Heston Blumenthal, and many more catering to the well-heeled Kensington elite. And when it’s time to burn off that long, lazy brunch or lunch (or frankly, both), close by you’ll find the Royal Palaces, three world-famous museums, green open spaces and parks, the Royal Albert Hall, boutiques galore, and excellent transport links to the West End, and the city’s business districts. It’s no wonder Kensington has earned a reputation as one of the capital’s most desirable neighbourhoods.
