Wandsworth house description

The story so far

Danvers Street is a tale of East and West, of past and present. Art and antiques from near and far fill its well-proportioned rooms, and up on the roof terrace the enchanting views stretch out across the Chelsea chimney pots. This is a London made familiar by picture books - tall houses, iron railings and garden squares, their trees filled with cooing pigeons. The Thames is just at the end of the street, and, going the other way is King’s Road, with its designer boutiques, fashionable restaurants and cafes. Kensington’s museums are within walking distance, and Knightsbridge is only a bus ride away. What happens next?
That’s down to you…

Portrait of an artist

Your hostess is a novelist, with a sideline in international law. She spent a number of years living in Asia, America and Australia before coming to the UK. Now, she divides her time between Danvers Street and her country cottage.

Pen to paper

On the surface, the sitting room is entirely traditional, a scarlet rug, a gilded mirror and a marble fireplace. Look again, though, and you’ll notice the wrought metal chaise, the pale blue silk of the sofa and the sunshine glow of that lacquered bowl. The antiques are hand carved, while the light filters through white wooden shutters. There’s a brand new kitchen diner in the basement, with space for eight around the table and a snug little TV room next door.

There are three bedrooms, a twin, a guest double and the grand master bedroom. The bed’s resplendent behind an iron bedstead, and you’ll never want leave the glam ensuite. Lie back in the egg bath and enjoy the view, or, better still, step out onto the roof terrace, and raise a glass to the swallows.

The sequel

Yarns like these never truly end, but continue onwards, out through Chelsea and beyond. Walk beside the river, cross for Battersea Park, or wend your way up into Kensington for the infinite intrigue of the museums. King’s Road will satisfy almost every material desire, while a brief cab or bus ride brings you to Harrods and Knightsbridge. Or, take the tale into town – the tube ride from Sloane Square to Oxford Circus lasts just over ten minutes.
