About our home

A beautifully light and airy apartment with high ceilings on the first floor of one of the detached period houses in Bassett Road, the premier address in Ladbroke Grove.

Two minutes walk from Ladbroke Grove station [ Circle line and Hammersmith & City line ] it is a tranquil place to stay near the hubbub of the Portobello Road and Notting Hill with your choice of bohemian and culturally diverse restaurants and bars. You can run the full gamut from charming local cafes and the street food market in Golborne Road where you can browse though the morning papers at the Golborne Deli with the best breakfast in town, the Portobello Garden Cafe my favourite where you are transported to Italy without taking the flight - to the Electric and Richard Caring's Pizza East.

Stroll through the Portobello Antique market on Saturday and explore the charms of Notting Hill and West London.

The apartment has been recently rewired and redecorated and has capacious wall to wall Nantucket cupboards. You can enjoy a coffee, with a certain amount of agility, on the diminutive - although adequate - balcony in the sunshine before venturing out to explore the area. The kitchen has a fridge with separate freezer, washer/dryer, oven hob and extractor, microwave, electric smoothie maker and electric kettle.

When rented / point swapped for more than 7 days - my cleaner will attend the property for approx. 2 hours per week after the first week to clean and change the sheets and towels at an additional cost of £50 per visit.

Point swaps are usually only available with 7/14 days notice as this is a short rental apartment - it encourages you to be spontaneous! :) The apartment is not available for stays in the month of June, occasionally there may be a 2/3 day window.

As this is a rental property unless otherwise agreed Checkin is after 2pm and Checkout is by 11am.

Super fast 60 MB Fibre optic broadband with unlimited download and a 42 inch Plasma TV with terrestrial channels and HDMI cable.

The apartment is also available for longer stays of 10+ days at an agreed rent NOT for points/swaps - please message me with your requirements.

There is a gym nearby which will give short term access at minimal cost. The House Manual which I can send you by PDF further to an agreed swap / rental gives you all the Local Information including transport.

More about us

  1. I travel frequently, love jazz and enjoy both the mountains and the sea. Tuscany with a pool would be great :)

  2. I am an investor - I travel alone and sometimes with one or two friends. I enjoy sitting on a beach or by a pool as much as visiting art galleries, museums and local restaurants.

  3. I enjoy the Arts, speak Italian and French, a smidgin of Spanish and Greek and always try to immerse myself in the local culture
