With its unparalleled location in the heart of South Kensington, this elegant home is the perfect base for a couple or solo traveller looking to experience some of the city’s greatest cultural gems. A four-minute walk from the Natural History Museum and a seven-minute stroll from both the Science Museum and the V&A, you’ll have a world of science, nature and art at arm’s reach here. Housed in a neoclassical building dating back to the 1870s, luxury meets comfort inside the apartment with tall ceilings, chandeliers, sophisticated furnishings and a neutral palette creating an instantly dazzling impression. We love the French doors in the living room that open out onto a private balcony, perfect for starting your mornings off over coffee while taking in leafy views. The bedroom, too, has floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors, allowing plenty of natural light to pour in, while the master bathroom offers an inviting Jacuzzi bath to relax in after a day of sightseeing. When you’re not sitting pretty in your chic home, go out and explore your prestigious surroundings. Aside from the Museum Mile a stone’s throw away, you’ve got Little France on your front step with Bute Street (three minutes away on foot) offering plenty of French cafes, bakeries and book shops as well as the Institut Français (five minutes away) where French film screenings and cultural events take place year-round. Knightsbridge is also just a twenty-minute walk from your home, for a spot of retail therapy at the iconic Harrods department store and some of the city’s swankiest restaurants.
