Situated on the third floor of a period mansion block, Clarendon’s corporate serviced apartments in Victoria’s Chester House tastefully echo the elegance and splendour of the surrounding area. Comprising 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, residents are offered immediate access to Eccleston Yards – an exclusive dining and shopping complex surrounding a central contemporary courtyard that has been lovingly restored to reflect its industrial roots. With Victoria Station less than five minutes away on foot, speedy transport links to central London and the Square Mile are also available, making Chester House ideal for both commuting and exploring.
About the property
Featuring light carpets and tasteful monochrome accents throughout, the decor in these apartments echoes many of the Art Deco features to be found in the building’s communal hallways. Classic and bright, natural light floods through the sizeable original sash windows, illuminating the harmonious colour palette evident in the plush furnishings and decorative touches. The 1 bedroom 1 bathroom apartments are ideal for individuals or couples. The 2 bedroom 1 bathroom apartments are especially spacious, featuring large separate kitchens and living rooms as well as substantial bedrooms and a family bathroom – making them ideal for sharers and families in search of a comfortable home. Some of the 2 bedroom apartments are configured with a single second bedroom. High speed Wi-Fi is available, making access to the internet immediate and working from home a happy possibility.
Residents will find fully-equipped kitchens with plenty of storage space as well as modern appliances such as washer/dryers and microwaves. On arrival there is a welcome pack, offering food and drink staples to make the move in more seamless.
The bathrooms all feature a shower and bath, hot towel rails and mirrored glass cabinets whilst the bedrooms include ample storage solutions in the form of wardrobes and bedside consoles. Comfortable beds adorned with high quality bedding are the main focal point, ensuring an uninterrupted and pleasant night’s sleep. Decorative fireplaces can also be enjoyed in several of the living areas and bedrooms – remnants of the converted building’s original interior architecture.
As with all Clarendon properties, a weekly maid service is provided, including a light clean and a change of all linen and towels. There is also a welcome tablet offering advice on everything from the local area to the nearest pharmacy, dry cleaner’s and newsagents.
The local area
With such a prominent train station on their doorstep, long stay serviced apartments in Victoria benefit from quick transport links across London as well as a direct high-speed rail link to Gatwick Airport and Brighton. In recent years the area has undergone extensive renovation and now plays host to a complex of restaurants, bars and shops that draw in a dynamic professional crowd each day. Of course, there are also several prominent theatres in the vicinity, so musical fans will find plenty to entertain, too. Named after Queen Victoria, who spent much of her life at nearby Buckingham Palace, there’s something rather regal about this small but iconic area.
