1 Bedrooms Flat to rent in Moscow Road, Hyde Park W2 | £ 404
|Contract type:||To Rent|
|Address:||Moscow Road, Hyde Park W2|
Property DescriptionMost people would want to live here: A beautiful, bright, quiet penthouse with outdoor space and period touches, and right beside one of the largest urban green spaces in the world: Hyde Park, with its horse-riding, open-air swimming, boats, beautiful buildings and feeling of countryside. That's just Hyde Park - let's talk about Bayswater, and the sheer ease of living there: Minute's walk from Oxford Street with its world-class shopping, Paddington with trains to everywhere and express to Heathrow, Nottinghill with its cinema, Arts Club and Portobello Road; across the park - some of the finest museums on Earth.
We haven't even got to this beautiful apartment! It's a penthouse! Nobody upstairs but God. Still agnostic? Doesn't matter -the lovely, bright living space opens out onto a charming terrace, with pretty views of the locality.
In short -
Attractive building, with period features.
You couldn't wish for a better transport hub - the Heathrow Express (13 mins to Heathrow) is a short walk away, the tubes on Queensway literally around the corner, putting all the major stations within 15 minutes, and all the airports within 55 minutes.
If you really can't be bothered to walk it, Oxford Circus is four stops up on the Central Line from Queensway (3 mins' walk), Totteham Court Road next stop (West End), another five or so minutes and you're in the City at Bank and Liverpool Street.

Cycling - ah, yes. Park routes all the way to the river, where the ride either way on the South Bank is a bit of a classic; also a sneaky circum-navigation of the centre via Regent's Canal Toe-path brings you past London Zoo, Camden through Islington past the great treasures of the New East and, if you have the stamina, to Canary Wharf and the pedestrian tunnel on to Greenwich.
Then get the ferry back to Westminster and home.
Excellent - double glazing throughout.
Gas fired central heating
On-street parking - apply to council
