Rustic and traditional, you’d be forgiven for thinking this was a country cottage, not a townhouse in the heart of the city. From the gingham headboard in the master bedroom to the rococo chairs surrounding the old oak table in the kitchen, Kynance Place exudes country calm. Gilt-framed portraits and baroque landscapes adorn the walls of the classical sitting room. There are two bedrooms, each with a double bed and a pared-back palette.
Polished mahogany, striking oil paintings and stately porcelain pieces ornament the interior furnishings, cool-toned walls and canvas curtains. Indeed, in this idyllic retreat you may have to remind yourself of your urban location – perhaps at an exhibition in one of South Kensington’s renowned museums, or over coffee and cake at a Gloucester Road café. When you return home, the sitting room’s sofa and pretty pink armchairs will seem all the more inviting.
The roof terrace of this home is only accessible via a steep ladder and isn't suitable for children or elderly guests. Images of this ladder can be seen in the master bedroom photos.
This home doesn't have air conditioning. Between June and September, we'll place fans in each bedroom. Please let us know if you'd like fans outside the summer period.
