Our home

Our lovely spacious and light 4-storey family home sleeps up to 9 people.
Built mid 19th century (Victorian), lower ground recently modernised with a new kitchen, floor to ceiling glass doors opening directly to our mature garden our home benefits from light all day.

There are two large living reception rooms - the upstairs living room has a real fireplace, a sofa and loveseat, a piano and a period daybed by the large window overlooking the garden.

On the lower ground floor is the bright and spacious open-plan kitchen, dining area and lounge. Fully equipped with all the necessary utilities needed for a comfortable stay, the kitchen is fitted with a large fridge/freezer, hob, oven, dishwasher and coffee machine. The dining table sits up to 10 people under the glass ceiling and with views of the garden through the large glass doors.
There are two large screen TVs.

There are four separate double bedrooms (one super king, two double beds, and one with single bunk beds and a sofa bed). One bathroom with victorian bath and separate shower, and one modern shower room, and two separate wcs.

We have a long 80ft garden (large for London!), with mature fruit trees and roses - and at the bottom a climbing frame with children's swings; and a full size table tennis table.

Our weekly cleaner may be available to attend during your stay (we would make arrangements).

    We like and appreciate nice things in life and would treat and respect your home like our own.

  3. We love travel, arts, culture and music, as well as sea & sand!
    Joe plays bass guitar and piano, and Matilde sings and plays piano - and both enjoy acting.
