Our home

We live in our large 3 bedroom flat, it has clean contemporary design, well appointed bedrooms, enormous private garden with mature trees, a private entrance and private parking. It has a fully fitted kitchen, glass fronted lounge with flat screen TV, DVD, music system and wifi. Outside, the gravelled terrace has seating for 6 and overlooks the wonderfully secluded mature private garden, we have a studio where I work (not open), 13 mature trees, lovely neighbours and a gas barbecue. We are an artist and a gardener, with 2 small children and have restored this beautiful Victorian apartment, combining the classic architectural features with clean contemporary design, original artwork, vintage furniture and modern home comforts. The stunning garden, a rare size in London, is South Facing, commands dappled sunshine from dawn til sunset. The location is easily accessible by road or train, and the offstreet private parking for up to 3 cars is another rarity in London. The property is used as a location for photographic shoots regularly, as it is a leafy oasis so close to the centre of London.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our apartment is in West Dulwich, a leafy area of South East London, we are five minutes from Dulwich Village which is a beautiful, classical English village within London itself. It has a famous art gallery and a royal park. We are a 5 minutes drive from local small supermarkets/shops etc, but we have excellent transport links being situated between West Dulwich (10 mins walk/ 10 minutes train to London Victoria and underground) and Tulse Hill (5 minutes walk/ 10 minutes train to London Bridge or Wimbledon). The area is very green, there are lots of parks, and the boutique shops and restaurants of Clapham and East Dulwich are a 10 minute drive.
