Enjoy this tastefully appointed, bright and modern flat overlooking one of Knightsbridge’s most desirable garden squares. This two bedroom, two bath home will provide ample accommodation for a group of four. Located on a quiet street, just moments away from the tube station, you'll find this lovely property tucked away on the top floor of a Victorian building.
The flat is just one block from Hyde Park/Kensington Gardens. Harrods, the Royal Albert Hall and the South Kensington museums are all within a quick five to ten minute walk and there is easy access via the underground, bus and taxi to West End theatre, shopping and many tourist sites.
Guests enter into the spacious living room, decorated with a contemporary aesthetic. Escape the clutter here, as the flat has been decorated with a luxe minimalist approach, which helps showcase the most special feature of this property: the lovely step balcony that overlooks the square gardens. There is also an adjoining terrace for al fresco dining.
The kitchen is brand new and fully equipped to cook a meal for those meals where you feel like staying in. London is a fantastic food city however, so you'll likely be taking in the amazing dining often!
There are two bedrooms with comfortable King size beds. The Master bedroom has a large closet space and an en suite bathroom. You'll find another plush king size bed in the second bedroom as well.
The Flat is warm in the winter and very cool in the summer. It is an ideally luxe property and a perfect home from which to discover the many sights and sounds of London and where you can truly live like a Londoner!

London is our favorite place to be in the spring and summer - we just love to explore, dine and soak up the excitement of this wonderful city. What makes this experience even more enjoyable is to be able to come home to the London Flat which is not only centrally located and a 2 min walk to Hyde Park but which is perfectly outfitted to make you feel completely at home. Our hosts Patricia and Joel have thought of everything - our stay was absolutely perfect. Thank you for your warm hospitality!”
Heaven in Knightsbridge
This serene, sublime penthouse represents the best of the THIRDHOME experience. The flat is a calm, light-filled aerie overlooking a classic, block-long London garden. The floor-to-ceiling window wall in the living room offers a spectacular view – on New Year’s Eve I was able to watch a rousing display of fireworks all along the Thames. The overall impression is one of quality, from the furnishings to the fittings; the art to the appliances; the electronics to the generous supply of soaps, lotions, and toiletries. The renovation of this flat was clearly a labor of love that can be seen in the detailing, materials, lighting, luxury, and ample storage space. The owners’ attentiveness to their guests is evident in thoughtful amenities throughout such as plug adapters, pay-as-you-go cell phones, and rechargeable Oyster Cards for the London Underground. The owners and local property manager were a pleasure to deal with, and the flat comes with a beautiful book that explains all of its amenities, features, and eccentricities, as well as nearby shopping and restaurants. The location, in the heart of Knightsbridge, is as good as it gets in London. The immediate neighborhood, full of inviting mews, is thoroughly residential, but all the neighborhood services you could wish for (even a Whole Foods!), are easily accessible by foot or a 3-5-minute bus ride (love that #10 bus!). Many of the city’s top sights are within strolling distance. Plus two Tube stations within a 10-minute walk, along with many nearby bus routes, afford easy access to all of London for public transportation fans. The flat is a quiet, spiritual oasis in the heart of one of the great cities of the world. Who could ask for more? What? You want a bathtub? Well, I guarantee if you get into the tub in the master bathroom, you will never want to get out and explore London. ”
Garden View Flat - 5 star
We had the most wonderful stay at The Garden View Flat. It was beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need. The decor modern and fresh and just so comfortable. The location is perfect - directly beside a lovely little private park in a quiet neighborhood but extremely central - 10 min walk to Harrods and a 2 min walk to Hyde Park. We couldn't have asked for more perfect vacation - thank you! ”
