Go south of the river and you’ll find yourself in a part of town with a laid-back vibe. Old Clapham Town is a place of easy rhythms, of sunlight filtering through leaves onto pavement cafes, of frisbees whisking across the common, and shirts with at least one button undone.
In the midst of all this is Trinity Close, a two bedroom apartment which brings to mind seventies California. It’s up to date, yes, with a lovely kitchen and gleaming bathroom. But funky eclectica is all around, from the much-loved leather armchair to the kitchen’s purposely mismatched stools. So come in, lie back, and chill.
Your host is a seasoned traveller whose main home is in Devon. His job as a fashion retailer and landowner takes him all over the world, so he and his large family flit between countries, bringing back some deeply desirable souvenirs. As a result, you’ll find flea market treasures all around Trinity Close.
Something about Trinity Close transports you to a simpler, less frenetic existence than that to which we’ve become accustomed. The furniture’s deeply tactile, the colours soft and the lamps hang low. But this is hardly a home caught in a time warp, as you’ll see when you get cooking in the modern kitchen, or have a splash in the oak-edged tub.
The view from the sitting room’s (original) bay window is entirely captivating, and, when the sun goes down, you can continue your contemplations in the minimalist master bedroom, with its king sized bed. There’s a further double next door, and of course, both beds are draped in the whitest, crispest linen.
Back to the future
You’ve some of London’s best delis and butchers right on your doorstep, and Clapham’s innumerable bars and restaurants ain’t half bad, either. There’s a real community spirit to Clapham Old Town, and the common often hosts fun fairs and fetes. And if you want to head into town, the tube’s just two minutes from your front door, so you’ll be there in less than half an hour.
