Description

This is a magnificent apartment, quietly located at the rear of the building with a bright westerly outlook.

Whilst in a beautiful condition with a modern finish, the period details such as the antique-style dark hardwood flooring, cornicing and decorative mouldings are very much in keeping with the wonderful Victorian traditions of the past and all combine to make a truly impressive home.

On entering, a panelled hallway takes you through to the heart of the property where the exceptional volume (3.4m) throughout the apartment becomes readily apparent, including that of a grand reception with three large sash windows ensuring the best of the natural light indeed all of the principal rooms have similar windows.

There is a large Bulthaup kitchen immediately adjacent to the living space providing a more informal dining option if required, and the master bedroom is an impressive suite with a large bath and shower room and a fabulous walk-in wardrobe. The two guest bedrooms are almost as large, both with en suite shower rooms and there is a very useful laundry room and store cupboard.

The apartment also has air-conditioning as well as and integrated ceiling speakers in the reception and master bathroom.

Hale House is one of the finest apartment buildings in Kensington. Situated just to the south of Kensington Palace and Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park and dating back to the 1880s, it is renowned for its large lateral apartments and grand communal areas. It is looked after by a team of porters and also has two private landscaped courtyards for the residents.
