About the property

Superbly fitted one double bedroom flat in the heart of London

This enchanting apartment, fitted out to the highest standard (like a top quality hotel suite, only lovelier), is perfect for a couple or a single person and works well for holidays, short breaks, or for business-visitors. A third person can be accommodated on a small sofa-bed which will be very comfortable for a person up to 170 cm (5'6'') tall.

This apartment is on the first floor (one floor up from street level via a short, carpeted staircase) of an exquisite Victorian townhouse, built in 1846. The accommodation comprises an open-plan kitchen/sitting room, with ‘Smart’ TV and Apple Box. Unlimited wireless broadband is provided, as well as DVDs and pre-paid access to Netflix. Making the most of every inch of space, there is a small desk area, the two-seater sofa and a comfortable armchair! There are a range of different lighting choices, to suit every mood and need. Linen is provided for both the main double bed and the sofa-bed, as are towels, face cloths, toiletries and a welcome pack of groceries.

The kitchen/dining area, which has underfloor heating to complement the apartment’s gas-fired central heating system, is fitted with every modern convenience, all of high standard: refrigerator, freezer, stove, ovens, microwave, extractor fan system, kettle, toaster, food mixer. Plenty of high quality cookware and tableware are provided, sufficient to hold a dinner party for six people, which the dining room table folds out to accommodate. And if you don’t feel like cooking, there are bakeries and a wealth of restaurants literally round the corner.

The bathroom is small but perfectly fitted, with a powerful shower over the bath and atmospheric lighting. A separate utility area houses a washer-dryer and laundry baskets, iron and ironing board.

The delightful bedroom contains a full-sized double bed (5’0” or 150 cm wide) made up with high quality bedding. There is ‘mood’ lighting, a phone-charger/radio/alarm clock and a well-lit dressing table area and, in the adjacent small hall, plenty of wardrobe and storage space. A hairdryer is provided.

From the bedroom, a door leads out onto a charming sun-trap private deck, with table, chairs and barbecue – perfect for outside dining on a summer evening.

Cleaning and maintenance are to the highest standard. This is a real home-from-home with every detail attended to by the owners, who keep a sharp eye on the whole operation.

The street in which the house is located is the most highly-sought-after in the area: small, quiet and as pretty as a picture. The local district, Pimlico (in Westminster), is one of London’s most acclaimed ‘villages’, with a pleasant local feel and a wonderful array of shops and restaurants yet in the heart of this great city. The location is unmatched in London. You can walk from this apartment to most of the main tourist attractions (see LOCALITY on this web-page), or go jogging along the Thames, which is just five minutes’ walk away and find yourself in the green spaces of Battersea Park, with its ‘peace pagoda’ rising up beside the water. Bikes can be hired in the area, and if you bring your own bikes, these can be stored in the basement (ask us).

The property is a few minutes’ walk from excellent supermarkets, some of them open 24/7 and the transport links are amazing. There are taxis galore and you are two minutes’ walk from the nearest Underground (‘Tube’) station (Pimlico- Victoria Line) and one minute from the best bus in London (the No24, which carries you past the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, No 10 Downing Street – the residence of the Prime Minister – and Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery, on its short ride into the West End). Victoria Mainline Station and Victoria Coach Station are both 10 minutes’ walk away, providing quick and easy links to all airports and the overground rail network, as well as car-hire collection and drop-off points (parking is free in the street over the weekend and garaging is nearby). For drivers, there is easy access to the A3, leading out of London. For visitors from Europe, St Pancras Station (where the Eurostar ‘docks’) is a 10 minute direct tube ride away, from Pimlico Underground Station.

About Adrienne Burgess

We are a couple who have worked mainly in the theatre and the arts, although Adrienne is now a writer/researcher specialising in fatherhood and Martin works as a communications coach. We have been renting out properties for almost 40 years.

Adrienne Burgess purchased this apartment in 1983

Why Adrienne Burgess chose Westminster and West End

This was actually the first apartment that Adrienne and Martin ever owned! it was Martin's to start with. He knew the moment he walked into it that it was for him: light, compact, well laid out and situated in the best street in this delightful district.

What makes this apartment unique

The remarkable thing about 'Pimlico' (the area in which this lovely apartment is situated), is that it is quite like a village, and yet it is right in the heart of perhaps the greatest city in the world. Neighbours know each other; the three intersecting streets that make up 'the Moretons' (also known as the Moreton Triangle) contain many family houses and have an active residents' association, the people in the shops are friendly, and yet the district is cosmopolitan and exciting. In Pimlico you can be peaceful, yet never feel that life is passing you by. . .

My husband and I just returned from a 5-night stay in this gorgeous Moretons flat in Pimlico. Totally appointed with EVERYTHING we needed for our visit to London. Kitchen fully equipped...dining/living area great for relaxation....awesome shower/bath....comfortable bed...and perfect little balcony. Every little detail was thought about...and provided!! On top of that, within walking distance to public transportation and many wonderful restaurants and stores. This beats ANY hotel room you could find and we will definitely refer this flat to all our family and friends who visit the UK. Thanks, Adrienne, for making our dream come true!

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I enjoyed our week's stay at this apartment. The location was excellent, very close to the buses, trains and only a 15 minute walk to Victoria Station. The apartment was well appointed and clean. The owner gave exquisite instructions and recommendations. No detail was omitted. She was easy to communicate with and ensured our stay was nice. There was also a basket of goodies awaiting us when we arrived. Top notch! I highly recommend staying here.

So close to pimlico station which gets you everywhere. Enough space for me and my 2 granddaughters. Well appointed, lovely street, with the bonus of a first rate Indian restaurant literally a 1 minute walk. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful stay in a well tended property in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Well, I can only say that this stay was near perfect. From the moment we booked to the moment we checked out everything was as we had hoped for. The apartment is well managed, all instructions are clear, emails are prompt.

Everything was modern and tastefully upgraded. Absolutely everything needed was there with clear instructions. Ironing board, hair drier, washer/drier, hangers, detergent for all appliances, etc. The linens and towels are top quality.

The welcome basket was much appreciated and having a balcony for those awesome London summer evenings was a treat.

Great location on a quiet street

  • 5 of 5

A perfect property for a couple. We especially enjoyed the detailed information concerning transportation tips, nearby amenities and points of interest.

A generous welcome basket of wine, coffee, granola and other breakfast items meant that we had everything we needed to start our stay from day one.

Cozy, clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three had a wonderful 5-night stay at this fantastic flat. Clean and full of modern appointments, the flat had everything we could need for our visit to London. We appreciated the welcome basket of goodies and all the information about the neighborhood, shops, restaurants and bus routes. It was especially great to have a washer/dryer so we could pack lighter. Our 9 year old daughter slept on the sofabed and said it was comfy. The location was extremely convenient to public transportation, just a five minute walk to Pimlico station or 10-15 minutes to Victoria and on several major bus routes. The street/neighborhood was clean and quiet. We weren't around the flat enough to enjoy the deck, but it was convenient for checking the weather each morning. Communications with the owner/manager was outstanding before, during and after our stay. Highly recommend!

With its amazing CENTRAL London location (SW1V 2NP - Google it!), this quietly situated apartment is brilliantly positioned right in the heart of London for a see-all London visit.

It’s a minute's WALK from shops, supermarkets, restaurants, outdoor food-market, Pimlico Tube (underground) & 24-hour taxis, buses, car clubs, bike hire.

It’s a 10-min WALK to an intimate, brand new three-screen cinema and major theatres (currently WICKED and BILLY ELLIOT are running), as well as to the River Thames, Buckingham Palace, Tate Britain, Lambeth Palace, Westminster Cathedral, M16, Mi5, St James Park, Victoria Station & Victoria Coach Station (from which there are easy rail/coach links to Heathrow, Gatwick & Europe). And 15 minutes to the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, No 10 Downing Street , the Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre and all the key government department buildings in this great city.

It’s a 20-min WALK to Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, the King's Road/Chelsea. Short tube/bus rides take you direct to Harrods, the major Museums in South Kensington (or you can walk to them in 40 minutes), to Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus, the West End, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, the National Gallery, the Imperial War Museum, the Festival Hall, Shakespeare’s Globe, the National Theatre & National Film Theatre, Hayward Gallery, IMAX, Waterloo Station, Tate Modern.

Local activities include shopping and restaurants, (a fantastic selection), London bus tours and river boats. There’s an excellent health food shop and a swimming pool and gym within five minutes’ walk( open to all), and you can jog through the backstreets up to St James’ Park (in front of Buckingham Palace) which then adjoins Green Park, or head south along the river for ten minutes to reach the wide open spaces of Battersea Park.

Victoria Mainline Station, just ten minutes’ walk from the house, has long been the stepping-off-point for Europe - and the magnificent Orient Express still leaves from there. During the two world wars, soldiers traveled from Victoria to the continent. The district then was full of small shops where tailors and seamstresses adapted uniforms to fit. Today, some of those shops remain – but now they’re haute-couture.
