    About this property

    Marlowe is a bright, airy and stylish city ‘pad’ offering contemporary features within classical Victorian architecture, set in the heart of one of London’s most vibrant neighbourhoods.

    Guests will immediately be struck by the dazzling simplicity of this home, as well as its calm, tranquil aura and abundant light.

    This two bedroom home is characterised by simple elegance, with a touch of designer flair, and a surprising modern twist on a minimal, classic aesthetic.

    Set over two storeys in a charming street bustling with local commerce and life, Marlowe blends the best of original architecture with cutting-edge finishes, offering hints of personality within a fresh and neutral space.

    The living room is well-proportioned, the main feature being the beautiful bay window made up of three sashes. The sleek palette of breezy white and cream is accented with pops of bright colour, giving it designer panache. Tastefully understated, natural daylight pours in, while the heigh ceiling creates a sense of space.

    Immaculately executed, this cleverly designed home is finished with solid wood flooring and an effective mix of modern and traditional furnishings.

    Stylish and inviting, this light-filled bol-thole is brimming with character: from the perspex coffee table to the tripod side lamp, beautiful fabrics in deep crimson and bottle green to the striking wall art. Guests will enjoy the ultimate city ‘pad’ experience at Marlowe, which offers colourful local culture as well as rich artistic heritage.

    The kitchen at Marlowe offers a built-in dining area, is awash with natural light: a slick and über modern affair ideal for informal meals or snacks on the go before a busy day of sight-seeing. Offering the final word in city kitchen design - from the glossy, white handleless units, to the zingy burst of lime green on the splash-back, to the top range appliances and six hob cooker, self-catering will be a pleasure! Like stepping into an interiors magazine, the beautiful bay window provides the timeless backdrop to a very contemporary finish, whilst the steely grey industrial style appliances are very much in vogue: Siemens double oven, extractor hood and coffee machine.

    The glass table and chairs overlook the garden providing an ideal intimate space for a fresh morning coffee enjoying the tranquillity before the bustle of a busy day.

    This charming home offers a main bedroom which is finished with striking simplicity. Minimal, unfussy and uncluttered, this bedroom has a soft and neutral palette, along with a sumptuous king-sized bed, mood lighting and cotton bed linen. Together, with an impeccable en-suite bathroom, this bedroom provides the ultimate sanctuary for a restorative stay.

    The second bedroom can be used as a second reception room, or the sofa bed can accommodate up to two guests. Set on the lower ground floor, this bedroom is cleverly designed to enable maximum light to infiltrate through the large skylight and enormous floor to ceiling glass windows. This bedroom offers a quiet, additional bedroom and boasts direct access to the wonderful, surprisingly large garden. There is a second bathroom, and an additional toilet, meaning no bathroom queues!

    The living room can accommodate a further two guests on the sofa bed, for a maximum of six guests, making this home ideal for couples enjoying a city break together, or a family.

    Thoughtfully presented and executed with uncompromising quality, Marlowe is every inch the grown-up city base for the design conscious guest, with bold features such as the striking glass spiral staircase and accents of colour.

    This charismatic home is cleverly designed to maximise both space and light; it offers a tranquil haven which is nonetheless on the very doorstep of one of London’s most buzzing areas where centuries-old history mingles with dynamic modern life.

    Marlowe is ideally located, just a short distance from the centre of London with so much on offer on its doorstep. The street still has an original neighbourhood appeal, with traditional “old school” style pubs and cafes, there is a sense of local life. Earls Court station is just moments away for hopping onto the tube or bus.

    So much can be accessed on foot from Marlowe, so be prepared to bring some decent walking shoes! Around South Kensington station, there is a pedestrianised area very popular with tourists which offers a huge choice of local eateries, whether it be a quick coffee and cake pit stop, pizza on the go, or a sit down meal, the choices are endless.

    This vibrant area is home to some of London’s finest museums: the V&A, the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum; guests should time their visits around off peak times to avoid the school holiday crush!

    As well as the world renowned museums, there are many, fascinating and intriguing lesser known museums and galleries. The Design Museum is set in a grade ll listed building in Kensington High Street; the building has been transformed by a team led by the well known architect John Pawson - from fashion to furniture, from product to graphic design, this is an international designers’ hub.

    Eighteen Stafford Terrace is just a few moments walk away, for a virtually untouched and immaculately preserved slice of Victorian living, one of the only genuine Victorian townhouses remaining, it has become something of a hidden national treasure.

    Located on the edge of Holland Park, Leighton House Museum is one of the most opulent museums in London; the ornate nineteenth century home of Lord Leighton is decorated with domed ceilings, gilded walls, flamboyant artwork and fountains. This is a small scale museum which makes for a nice afternoon’s activity, whilst Holland Park itself is small, little known by tourists, and offers something of a secret escape into woodlands, wild ponds and pavilions; set in one of London’s most elegant areas, it makes for a romantic stroll or day out as a family.

    High Street Kensington is just moments away, which offers a wide array of high street boutiques and a flagship Whole Foods store, whilst Notting Hill is a short bus ride up the road, and for a treat, The Orangery at Kensington Palace Gardens offers an unapologetically decadent and elegant dining experience!
    Hyde Park, a true wonder during every season, and the Serpentine Gallery are just a walk away, whilst stopping off at The Mess for a light lunch or some rather smart poached eggs will be a lot of fun.

    For an authentic, cosy pub experience, The Devonshire Arms on Marlowe itself offers the ultimate London experience: exposed brick walls and lavish crimson upholstered interiors, with deep mahogany flooring, visitors will enjoy the gastropub menu of burgers and steaks, and in the summer the garden is brimming with locals enjoying a post work cooling beer or catching up with friends.

    Marlowe, is set back from the bustling, tourist hotspots, within classical London tree lined tranquillity, offering the very best of a local neighbourhood, along with endless opportunities just a few moments beyond in the heart of London’s Royal Borough where both modern culture and history jostle side by side.
