Property description

Two adjacent apartments in Academy Gardens, Kensington, of some 1,900 sq ft combined between the two, on separate titles, with two secure underground valet parking spaces. This is an interesting opportunity for someone who wants to explore combining them, subject to the necessary consents, or for families that like the idea of having two apartments next to each other in the same building, for their children for instance.

One of the apartments has recently been granted planning consent to create a second bedroom, second bathroom and add 69 sq ft, which will result in a two bedroom two bathroom apartment of some 1,040 sq ft (plans may be provided upon request) and a total of some 1,969 sq ft combined between the two apartments.

Academy Gardens, situated on Duchess of Bedford's Walk, is a Neo-Georgian red brick Grade II listed former college with immaculate gardens, 24-hour concierge, swimming pool, gym and lift. It is well positioned for the amenities of Kensington High Street and Notting Hill Gate and moments from the open spaces of Holland Park and Kensington Gardens.
