Clear your diary and blot your engagement book, because St Stephen’s Gardens II is an RSVP you can’t refuse. As affable as a season of tea parties, this apartment speaks of raised glasses, ready smiles and endless roof-terrace nibbles. The walnut wood furnishings are fetchingly bold, while the open-plan layout flows like the smartest table talk. Whether catch up on the corner sofa or invite yourself to the eateries and boutiques nearby, you’re sure to be entertained. After all, anyone with a nodding acquaintance with Notting Hill can see it’s the hottest ticket in town.
Australian by birth, your hostess has filled her home with antipodean warmth. But you’ll mostly find her wining and dining, greeting and being greeted, in gregarious New York.
##Cocktail time Let this home take your coat and show you into the sitting room. Open plan and thronged with light, first impressions will be favourable indeed. Introduce yourself at the elegant dining table beside the ample TV, mingle in the modern kitchen or flow up the stairs to the wonderful roof terrace.
With its barbecue, parasol and dining table, you won’t want to part ways in a hurry. As for the excitements and entertainments of town, we won’t blame you if you plead a previous engagement and stay in. The stylish master bedroom, with its gleaming en suite, and the dusky-pink double are all the company you need.
The building in which the home is located doesn't have a lift. As there are several flights of stairs to get to the front door, and more inside the home, guests should be prepared for a climb when arriving.
The sofabed in the sitting room can accommodate an additional two guests. Please let our reservations team know how you would like the room to be set up for your stay. Note that space is limited and once the bed is set up, the room does not offer much extra room for truly spreading out.
If you require the sofabed set up in the sitting room we will provide a collapsible wardrobe for your stay.
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.
