Stunning Luxury Canal-side Apartment in Chelsea near Notting Hill Gate
- Family/child friendly
- Air conditioning
Spectacular sun-filled, south-facing luxury canal-side triplex, overlooking Notting Hill and far beyond. Includes a wonderful, 20-foot-high, penthouse loft with floating bedroom platform.
Owned and built by a Scandinavian designer, this ultra-stylish but quiet and very cozy and romantic apartment has been crafted with wit and love and has never previously been rented except for the occasional fashion shoot. Sleeping up to eight people, the apartment has great transport links, free WiFi and unlimited telephone calls to the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom.
A private entrance and mural-decorated staircase leads up to the higher floors of a red brick Victorian house. On the lower floor there is one bedroom with its own south-facing balcony overlooking the canal and Meanwhile Gardens (a small nature reserve), a master bedroom with en suite bathroom and another bathroom. Both bathrooms have showers and jetted tubs.
Continuing up a further short flight of stairs, you emerge firstly into the fully-fitted kitchen with another balcony and a wonderfully positioned breakfast table from where you can lazily sip your coffee and enjoy the south-facing view over Notting Hill and the magnificent London skyline. Turn another corner and you are in the triplex's huge double-leveled penthouse loft with twin fireplaces. Seeing is believing. Part of it leads up to the roof terrace which is well lit and fitted with outdoor heater (for al fresco night-time winter reading?).
A further part leads up to the gravity-defying floating bed and study in the attic space, from where you can laze and gaze forever, over your friends downstairs or the birds and boats on the canal, or just out over the amazing view. All nine windows are fitted with blinds, but seem to be rarely used - no wonder!
Facilities in the Condominium:
Dishwasher, Air Conditioning, Cable or Satellite Television, Cooking Utensils, Tumble Dryer, DVD Player, Kitchen, Linen Service, Microwave, Open Fire, Refrigerator, Stereo, TV, Washing Machine, additional Ipod docking station to connect any Ipod into the high quality sound system.
Balconies overlooking the canal from both the kitchen and the guest bedroom. The living room and floating bedroom platform, guest bedroom and kitchen all over look the Grand Union, England's longest and most beautiful canal, and onwards over Notting Hill and the whole city.
The house is located on a quiet Victorian street, some of whose houses, almost in secret back, onto the Grand Union canal. It is perfectly positioned for explorations all over the capital. A delightful short stroll along the canal takes you to the quaint café’s, antique and junk shops and market of the Golborne Road and Portobello Road that leads you in turn to Notting Hill.

Me and my friends had a lovely stay in flat c. The appartement was sentral and clean. We felt safe. The balkony was fantastic,and if it had had enough chairs for all five, it would have been even better. The host was very eager to help with our questions. We will come back
A very nice place to stay with reasonable Vehrkehrsanbindungen to downtown and to the sights. Thank you
Ein sehr schöne Unterkunft mit günstigen Vehrkehrsanbindungen in die Innenstadt und zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten. Danke
We enjoyed our stay in this nice and well equipped apartment. The only issue was we only received one set of keys for the apartment and therefore detailed planning was required when we spilt up in groups.
The booking process went well and we got good feedbacks with Rowan. When we got to the house met Peter up and gave a nice introduction. The house was cozy and had all sorts of equipment, and we have six people had plenty of space. It was close to the subway and buses, as well as eateries and supermarkets. We had a very pleasant stay in London and would recommend this house if you are many who will stay together.
Bokningsprocessen gick bra och vi fick bra återkopplingar med Rowan. När vi kom till huset mötte Peter upp och gav en trevlig introduktion. Huset var mysigt och hade all tänkbar utrustning och vi 6 personer hade gott om plats. Det var nära till tunnelbana och bussar, liksom matställen och supermarkets. Vi hade en mycket trevlig vistelse i London och kan verkligen rekommendera detta hus om man är många som ska bo tillsammans.
The house is fantastic. Very cozy and with everything you need to not throw anything missing. Peter was very friendly. Very well connected. The neighborhood is very quiet and there are many shops in the inmediaciones.Lo recommend and would definitely repeat.
La casa es fantástica. Muy acogedora y con todo lo necesario para que no eches nada en falta. Peter fue muy amable. Muy bien comunicada. El barrio es muy tranquilo y existen muchas tiendas en las inmediaciones.Lo recomiendo y sin duda volvería a repetir.
Even though we have not seen Rowan, it was a very good weekend!
We were very well guided by telephone, and the house is really well-located, just a few meters from a regular bus, subway and 15min.
Même si nous n'avons pas vu Rowan, c'était un très bon weekend!
Nous avons été très bien guidé par téléphone, et la maison est vraiment pratique et bien situé, à quelques mètres d'une ligne de bus régulière, et 15min du métro.
Also this year my family (6 adults + 1 child) enjoyed the stay in one of Rowan´s properties! First the original booked house was not available on the confirmed date. But Rowan provided us a much better house in the same location - a really nice surprise! Peter and Rowan gave us a very good assistance before and during the stay. When you are looking for a good restaurant nearby the house you can ask Peter because he knows well about delicious places to eat! And of course the property was very clean.
Very nice house, fully furnished and close to downtown, restaurants, subway 10 minutes walk and shops.
Erg mooie woning, compleet ingericht en in de buurt van centrum, restaurants, metro op 10 minuten lopen en winkels.
The house is a delight, full of love and very convenient for us as we traveled with children aged 6 to 9 years. Nice and quiet neighborhood, and very well served by public transport that are very efficient. The only drawback the relationship with those who run it until the day before my departure had never responded to my emails and even in London we were never able to see it even though I need your assistance and having called on the phone multiple times!! !
La casa è una delizia, piena d'amore e molto comoda per noi che abbiamo viaggiato con bambini dai 6 ai 9 anni. Bello e tranquillo il quartiere, e molto ben servito dai mezzi pubblici che sono efficientissimi. Unico neo il rapporto con chi la gestisce che fino al giorno prima della mia partenza non aveva mai risposto alle mie mail e anche a Londra non siamo mai riusciti a vederlo pur avendo bisogno di sua assistenza e avendolo chiamato sul cellulare molteplici volte!!!!!
