About Ann Louise Stebbing

We have moved to the south coast as we love sailing and living beside the water. We will really enjoy coming up to London when the flat is empty. Having lived in London most of our adult lives, we love coming back to visit friends and potter around our 'village'.

Ann Louise Stebbing purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Ann Louise Stebbing chose Kensington

I love being on the end of the terrace with windows all down the side of the property overlooking the quiet mews, as well as windows at the front and back - very unusual to have so much light and so many windows. And being on the side of the mews with the garden door leading out onto the mews, it feels very quiet and peaceful. I love the beautiful bijou garden

What makes this apartment unique

A four minute walk down the road to an assortment of shops, cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, delicatessens, hospital, buses, tube station in a very elegant, villagy area...or four minutes the other way to the funky area of Earls Court and Earls Court tube station which is a hub of all the different lines so very easy to get anywhere in London

This apartment is in the perfect location for famous international cultural and sporting events such as:

• St Patrick's Day

• Virgin Money London Marathon

• RHS Chelsea Flower Show

• Royal Ascot

• FA Cup Final 2016

• Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships

• Hampton Court Palace Flower Show

• Notting Hill Carnival

• Totally Thames Festival

• New Year's Eve Fireworks

Fantastic Flat in a Great Area

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed 4 nights at the apartment, it was roomy and had a lot of charm. It is located in a very nice neighborhood that is central to all transportation. The owners communicated very well and we could not have been happier with our experience. As a bonus, the flat has a nice little garden and is well lit.

Oasis in the city of London

  • 5 of 5

Every aspect of the flat was amazing. We had an excellent time and the description of the property was spot on. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. I lovely designed flat that was clean, spacious, on a great area and had a wonderful garden area to relax with a good book.

A wonderful flat!

  • 5 of 5

This flat is located in a wonderful location, is very clean and has a small outdoor area that is a lush Oasis. My travel companion and I had not one complaint. I wish we could have stayed forever.

Would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights during spring break and was very happy with everything. The location is great! You can walk to the underground in about 10/15 minutes and go anywhere you want. There are plenty of restaurants and grocery stores in either direction. We loved that it was more in a residential area. It was quiet, safe and very quaint. There is a cute little park about a block away. The flat itself is a great set up. Yes, that bathroom in the master bedroom is a little odd but it works. We were a family of 4 (2 teenagers) and it worked just fine. We loved having a washer and dryer so we could do laundry. In the back you have patio that is very cute. We had a little hiccup at the beginning of stay but Ann Louise and Van were great and got everything resolved. They both responded to everything quickly. Also, Ann Louise answered any questions I had before our arrival. We would definitely stay here again!

Lovely Flat, Charming Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We four friends spent a short week in London mid September. Our Chelsea Home Away flat was jusr the perfect combination of location and amenities. We purchased a French press coffee maker nearby for our morning quick breakfasts. Our days were spent exploring the city and enjoying substantial pub lunches. Then we returned "home" via the tube for cocktails and snacks each evening. The walk from tube station was a short one. This delightful flat is cozy and inviting. We would book it again.

Very comfortable cute place

  • 4 of 5

It was a very comfortable stay. Beds were very comfortable and nice clean sheets n towels. Had a few problems with the bathroom, toilet flush broken but they sent a lovely man who fixed the problem straight away. The shower also doesn't drain very well so can't have a long shower otherwise it overflows. But I guess that was English plumbing in these conversion appartments.

Nice and quite street and has great restaurants just down the road.

Would stay again.

Owner's Response: Hi Vanessa Thank you for taking the time to review my flat and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. The cleaners have just popped around to check the shower and there was a hair tie in the drain so we have removed it and the water is now flowing again properly. Sorry you had this issue. We look forward to your next stay. All the Best Ann Louise

This home is located on a quiet residential street flanked by pillared period homes, just off the Fulham Road and a short walk from the King's Road, both filled with fabulous boutiques and high street shops (and choice of a variety of supermarkets and delicatessens!) ; an easy reach, either by foot, bus or bicycle, from Sloane Square: this is the place to be. A large choice of styles of bars, restaurants and cafes are within a walk of your door.

Take a pleasant walk up the King’s Road, with it's variety of high street shops and boutiques, eclectic bars and sophisticated restaurants, and you will arrive at Sloane Square, and from there you are a few minutes from Harrods, Harvey Nicols and Sloane Avenue. For those of a Thespian bent, the Royal Court theatre is on Sloane Square, and on Saturdays at the nearby Duke of York Square, a gastronomically cosmopolitan food market will keep all foodies happy!. The Saatchi gallery, a few minutes away, will delight all art fans, and a short and picturesque walk will take you down onto Chelsea embankment and the Thames, to the foot of the iconic Albert Bridge.(over the bridge into the beautiful Battersea Park)

For those who like to look beneath the surface to the layers of London history, which have built up over the centuries, Chelsea is a wonderful area to explore. Discover Crosby Hall, on Cheyne Walk, which was moved brick by brick from its original location in Bishopsgate, Thomas More’s house and an eternal monument to the ‘man for all seasons’; wander a little further down to what was once Henry VIII’s manor house (19 – 26 Cheyne Walk) and drink in the echoes of its old residents, from Katherine Parr (to whom Henry gave the house as a wedding present) to the tragic Lady Jane Grey, the nine – day Queen.

Chelsea has always been synonymous with wealth and royalty, ever since Henry VIII and his six successive wives haunted its enclaves, not to mention Thomas More, whose home in Cheyne Walk stands to this day. The King’s Road weaves its way through the area, carrying with it an aura of luxury and sophistication. However, despite its reputation for all that is chic and debonair, it still rings with the echoes of its Bohemian past, dispelling all odours of stuffiness. For centuries home to myriad artists – many of the pre-Raphaelites, Turner, the satirist Swift, and historian Carlyle spent their lives here in Chelsea – it was more recently the roosting place for Swinging Londoners, and a decade later, the birth place of punk. The famous Chelsea Art School is still a mecca for aspiring young artists, and lends the area intellectual glamour, whilst the surprising mixture of traditional and esoteric bars and clubs attracts London’s Bright Young Things – Chelsea is still very much up for the party!
