THE LOCAL AREA (1-2 minutes' away):
Pimlico is an ideal central London location with a small-scale friendly villagey atmosphere & lots of neighbourhood shops. It is just as centrally located as prime areas such as Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Kensington, Chelsea & Hollard Park, but offers more reasonable rents. The flat is in a quiet and unspoilt Victorian cul-de-sac with its original gas lamp, tucked well away from rush hour traffic & major roads. Just one minute’s walk away are every type of local shop, coffee shops & restaurants; upmarket Gail’s Artisan Bakery; 3 supermarkets open till 10pm including Waitrose, large Sainsbury’s with butcher/fish monger/cheese counters; a daily local vegetable market with foodie stalls on Fri/Sat; Queen Mother Sports Centre with swimming pool; local post office; laundry/dry cleaners; doctor's surgery; free withdrawals cash machine; two City Of Westminster bike rental stands.

At a brisk walk, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and the excellent Saturday Farmers’ Market on Pimlico Road, Tate Britain and the Thames can be reached in 15 minutes. Piccadilly (across St. James’s & Green Park) is about 30 minutes' walk. Yet in the quiet cul-de-sac where the flat itself is located, London traffic is almost inaudible. The flat feels like a completely different world – a wonderful retreat to relax, chill out or work from home.

I highly recommend this flat at the heart of London. I spent a few months here in the Spring of 2017 and could not have asked for a better place. The flat is conveniently located at walking distance from Victoria and Pimlico. It is situated in a very quiet street (cul-de-sac), with a bakery, shops, restaurants, and a local market just around the corner. The bedroom, sitting area, and kitchen are all situated at the back of the house and overlook the garden, so you hardly have any street noise. In addition, the many windows allow for lots of natural light, making the rooms very airy and bright. I got on with the landlady very well - Barbie is a lovely person and a good landlady - and thought it convenient that all amenities were included in the rent. You will find this a great and quiet place in a very central part of London! Excellent Birgit 6/9/2017 12:36:00 PM
I strongly recommend you to rent this flat. The flat is bright, quite, and beautiful. You have two balconies and a wonderful view on a super relaxing and nice garden. Therefore, you have the advantage of a relaxing place in the heart of London, at a walking distance from Victoria and Pimlico metro station. The location is cool, you have whatever you need in your proximity (restaurants, super markets, cafe, boulangerie). So, the flat is fantastic, in a very nice quartier and, as if this was not enough, Barbie is a very kind, polite and nice owner. You will really feel at home. Excellent stefania 2/21/2017 7:55:00 AM
