About Alasdair Sutherland

We are English, retired, my wife was an executive with Yves St Laurent UK and I was with an international marketing & PR agency.

I'm the author of a recently published book about the 1960s and the impact of Italian food on the UK 's restaurant culture.

Our current project is the restoration of an old farmhouse in Puglia, Southern Italy, and the flat is let while we are away. So this is not a rental flat business, it is part of our own home.

Alasdair Sutherland purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Alasdair Sutherland chose Kensington and Chelsea

We have lived in this area since 1976: The garden square is very quiet, but has immediate access to airports, LHR and LGW, and to all of west London via the underground and bus system.

Lovely sitting room, comfy beds, functional kitchen, good neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week in February and were delighted with our sunny, view of the garden and square from the

book-filled sitting room. This apartment is situated away from noisy streets, but very close to the tube and bus stops, so it

was easy to get around and very easy to get to from Heathrow. Lovely small streets nearby for exploring, lots of dining and

grocery options.

Mrs. Dulfis Hayden met us and showed us how things worked and where everthing was located. She made herself

available during the week, if we needed help, and was charming and friendly.

It is an old building and the walls are thin. The only negatives were a noisy party nearby on Sat. night and three flights of stairs.

We would stay here again.
