Open plan, fresh two bedroom apartment close to Paddington station. This is the perfect base for exploring London.
This is a really well sized two bedroom apartment on the top floor of a grand white stucco building. You're in the heart of Little Venice, so named because of all the beautiful canals in the area.
The large living space has big windows letting in lots of natural light. There's a separate dining area which leads to the kitchen and the balcony outdoors. If the weather is fine, why not dine al fresco?!
The kitchen has all you require for making meals and doing your laundry (with washer/dryer).
The master bedroom is on the lower floor and has en-suite access.
Upstairs you'll find the second loft-style bedroom and study area. Here is another bathroom which has been recently refurbished (Feb 2013).
The Little Venice area is home to many great cafes, restaurants, boutique shops and supermarkets. You can be at the platform for the Heathrow Express at Paddington Station within 5 minutes. Paddington station is well connected on the District, Circle, Hammersmith & City and Bakerloo lines. You'll also find mainline connections to towns outside of London for day trips as well as a large bus network. You're also less than a 10 minute walk to either Warwick Avenue or Edgeware Road stations. You can reach Marylebone on foot in 10 minutes and the famous Baker Street in about 15 minutes. Selfridges and March Arch are about a 20 minute walk or 5 minutes on the Underground or bus.
Please note the apartment is up 2 flights of stairs (no lift) and there is a staircase within the apartment, as it is set over 2 floors.
Area Description: "Westminster is a well-to-do, historical area with many prestigious landmarks and visitor attractions. It provides a wide choice of parks and open spaces such as St. James Park and Green Park, as well as political London icons 10 Downing Street and the Houses of Parliament. The Palace of Westminster, Ã¢â‚¬ËœBig Ben', Buckingham Palace - home to the Queen of England - and Westminster Abbey where Kate Middleton and Prince William were married, are all in this beautiful area. Parliament Square, with its lawn and statues of past statesmen, is a popular tourist spot and a space from which you can see some of the most iconic architecture of the Capital.
Families will enjoy this area, with many luxurious modern developments nestled amongst the traditional period homes which provide plenty of space. Take a walk along the Victoria Embankment which has some brilliant views of the city's skyline, and if you head to the Southwest, the area of Victoria has many restaurants, bars and shops to explore, particularly in Cardinal Place. One eatery of note is in the Old Westminster Library which dates back to 1893 and was transformed into an upmarket Indian restaurant in 2001: The Cinnamon Club. "
