Wandsworth house description

One liners

Oscar Wilde, a former resident of Chelsea’s Tite Street, once sighed ‘I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.’ For today’s inhabitants of this charming street, situated in the heart of historic Chelsea, little has changed since Wilde’s heyday. The houses are still discretely well-to-do, and the atmosphere that of genteel erudition. And here is Augustus Court, a three bedroom, two bathroom penthouse in a Victorian red brick building, brimming with space and light and effortless sophistication. Close your eyes, let you mind wander, and you can almost hear the Wildean words of wisdom.

Home from home

Your hosts are an American and South African pair, who live here with their young daughter. Having met on this very spot two decades ago, the street for them is full of nostalgia and aspiration. They enjoy the cultural and culinary highlights of the area, but also like walking in the countryside and camping in Europe.

The house beautiful

Choosing one of two entrances to the home sets out the stall immediately. This is both gracious third floor Chelsea residence, and comfortable family home. The spacious and light sitting room boasts modernist furniture and a substantial TV, but also a toddler’s corner stuffed with toys. The immaculate bathroom next door would suit the inhabitant of the cosy single bedroom, and everyone will enjoy the splendidly equipped kitchen, with its big windows, modern appliances and toddlers’ high chairs.

Heading upstairs, the master bedroom feels like an eyrie, with its half-slanted ceiling and door facing onto the split-level roof terrace with South west views. Next door is a sweet child’s room, decorated in pink and with a cot for a little one. Along the hall is a second pristine bathroom so that you or your guests can take a shower while dreaming up your next brilliant one-liner. But remember- only the dull are witty at breakfast.


The importance of being Chelsea

If you’re looking for culture, you’re going to be spoilt here. The Saatchi Gallery and the Royal Court theatre are just a short stroll onto the hip King’s Road, and the museums of South Kensington can be reached in less than half an hour. If it’s food and drink that interests you, the Saturday farmer’s market of Duke of York’s Square is a must, as is the ever-trendy Botanist restaurant. To get into the centre of town, the tube from Sloane Square takes less than ten minutes.
