West Eaton Place is a home that does the seemingly impossible. This is a truly contemporary apartment crafted from the fruits of the earth. Wood panels cast their honeyed glow across thick cotton, soft sandstone and gleaming granite. The sound system extends out into the brand new bathrooms, and everywhere, there’s a feeling of subtle luxury. And speaking of luxury, you’re only steps from Chelsea’s Sloane Square and a short walk from Knightsbridge. Spend the morning in Harrods, enjoy the café culture of King’s Road, or admire the ravishing beauty of Hyde Park - never was the outdoors so very great.
Your host is from Spain. He works in finance, and after a busy day, he treasures the tranquillity of his much-loved home.
Going with the grain
You’ll come first to the warm panelled kitchen; its appliances tucked neatly within smooth wooden units. The eat-in sitting room holds a snuggly corner sofa, and light floods through the window down onto the rattan-clad floor. You’ve two bright bedrooms, each with a sleek ensuite. The twin room (which can be reconfigured as a kingsized double) benefits from a pure white bathtub, while the master bedroom is all lush sophistication, with a flat-screen TV and an opulent black shower room tucked behind a wall of glass.
Back to your roots
Whether your destination is Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park or Harrods, you’ll be there in just a handful of minutes, for you’re in one of the nicest and best-connected parts of town. Sloane Square’s shops and restaurants are mere moments from your front door, and a quick cab ride brings you to Kensington and the museums. Or, if you want to visit the West End, the tube journey from Sloane Square to Oxford Circus takes around twelve minutes.
