2 Bed.duplex. Large Terrace., hidden oasis,Marble Arch/Hyde Park

This flat is in a unique housing development in a secret, quiet, green oasis in prize winning gardens in the centre of a busy metropolis with all the urban facilities of shops supermarkets , cafes ,restaurants, and public transport around it.
THe rent includes all taxes, utilities, internet etc. except a month charge of £25 for cleaning . The £14 for landline telephone installed to open the gates from the flat will give unlimited free calls in the UK and some to other countries and is now included in the price of the flat.
It is surrounded by mature trees and accessed through a locked iron gate in an old wall. There is no through road. All you hear is the hoot of an owl.
It has a large terrace running the length of the flat with an electrically controlled green and white striped awning for comfort during the summer. The terrace is like an outside room for eating and relaxing, overlooking the trees and gardens on the 3rd. (American 4th) floor.

THe post is delivered to the door daily. It is comfortably furnished with everything you might find in a normal home and because we live nearby we can bring over anything else you might need.

The lower floor has open plan living , dining and kitchen, with a small separate utility room with freezer, washing machine and dryer. On the upper floor there are two double bedrooms and the bathroom.

London's Park and Ride bicycle facilities are nearby for non walkers or just for exploring

Marble Arch tube station and many buses to all parts of London are 5 minutes walk away as are the shops, cafes and multi cultural restaurants of all kinds.
Many places such Paddington station, St.Mary's Hospital, Royal Academy, Wallace Collection, Handel's house, Wigmore Hall are within easy walking distance (5-15mins), . The St. Pancras Station (Eurostar) British Library, V&A, Natural History Museum, British Museum and all theatres are for slightly hardier walkers (30mins) or a short bus ride.
There is a good street market within easy walking (10mins) distance for fresh, cheap fruit and vegetables. For those in a hurry , there are many small specialised shops and supermarkets , some staying open all night. We have two larger and good supermarkets, Waitrose & Tesco. .

I regret that no pets are allowed in the development, but London squirrels and many birds are common visitors.

I stayed here between September and October 2017. The flat itself was beautiful with a very bookish and cultured ambience. Comfortable bed, everything working fine, and the location is fantastic. Hosts live upstairs are very pleasant and interesting people who made my stay even better. Excellent Victoria 1/15/2018 7:53:00 PM
Our stay in Rima and John's lovely two bedroom apartment was wonderful. We wish we were still there and hope to return. The flat is like it's described, but even better and Rima and John are attentive, friendly, and helpful landlords. The location of this flat, across from an entrance to Hyde Park, five minutes from the start of Oxford Street, the Marble Arch tube stop on the Central Line and less than a 15 minute walk to Paddington Station is ideal. Once inside the gated community of St. George's Fields, you'd never know you're in the heart of central London. All you hear is birds and all you see is the beautiful park-like grounds/gardens that are kept immaculately. The flat, itself, has everything you could need including large items like a well-equipped kitchen, laundry, and printer to smaller things you'll need like a wheeler to take to the supermarket (just a 7 minute walk up Edgeware Road to Waitrose) to a drying rack for clothes that don't go in the dryer and herbs growing on the balcony to use in your cooking. Indeed, if you find you need something that isn't in the flat, Rima and John will be happy to get it for you. We asked about a clock radio for the main bedroom and one appeared the next day. I needed a quiche pan for the kitchen and Rima found one for me. I truly can't say enough about how lucky we felt to have found the perfect spot for our sabbatical stay in London. Thanks Rima and John! Excellent Donald Weber 6/13/2016 6:32:00 AM
This flat is amazing and the owners even more so. This is a lovely flat with a very nice kitchen and beautiful bathroom. My sister slept well on the converted couch for a week. Rima and John are terrific hosts. I'll be staying here again if it's available. Location can't be beat. Simply outstanding.

Wish I was back here. Spent the first half of 2015 living in this charming flat. Lovely clean 2 bedroom place. Wonderful terrace and views out to the magnificent communal gardens. Our landlady and landlord were the very best you could ask for. Checked often that all was ok and fixed any issues that arose (lightbulb replacement etc.). Helpful in guiding us around the area too. Fabulous position, across the road from Hyde Park and easy access to all public transport. Fantastic! Excellent Elizabeth ONeill 8/18/2015 3:39:00 PM
My recent stay at the flat in St. George's Field was very enjoyable. The combination of being surrounded by extensive gardens yet still being in close proximity to the center of London is unique. The small shops and restaurants in nearby Connaught Village are charming and convenient. The landlords live quite close by and are very helpful. I hope to return to this, or another of the flats rented by Rima, in the near future. Excellent Mandi 3/28/2015 9:32:00 AM
