City of London apartment description

Never forget

In Victorian times, Tower Bridge was the gateway to London. Saffron, anise, tamarind and tea all passed along this stretch of the Thames before being tucked away in warehouses like Ivory House. This spectacular home has a great past, and you’ll feel romance imbued in its every brick. The curved windows, the high ceilings and exposed structure saturate the space with history, but this home is cosy, too. Let twinkling fairy lights, cherry red furniture and avant-garde lighting cosset you in comforting luxury. The ivory may be long gone, but the atmosphere of Ivory House is perhaps its most precious treasure yet.

Out of Africa

Your hosts share a passion for travel, and Ivory House is littered with intriguing souvenirs from their voyages to Mali, Nigeria and Mozambique. When they’re not trotting the globe, they work in the City, and dance away their evenings to all manner of seminal yet retro eighties tunes.

Underneath the arches

There’s a sense of exclusivity to Ivory House. Downstairs, the lobby has the opulent feel of a private club, while once through the door, you’ll be struck by the sleek design and clever use of textures. The enormous open plan living space features a squashy leather sofa to sink into, splashes of scarlet in the dining chairs and rug, and a wall of fascinatingly varied books. Turn on the surround sound system, or take your glass of wine out onto the balcony, which boasts a peerless view down to the dock below.

The master bedroom, too, looks out over the river. Bitter chocolate wood and African masks are set against pure white walls, and the en-suite is simple and modern. There’s a twin bedroom, also with its own en-suite, a handy office and an airy double, with access to a pretty family bathroom – filled, of course, with our sumptuous White Company toiletries.

Trading route

Charles Dickens set much of Oliver Twist in this part of London, and you’ll love the cobbled alleyways, the evocative street names and shadowed doorways that typify the area. You’re within moments of the Thames and surrounded by cafes and shops. Stroll down to the Tower of London, buy your dinner at foodie Mecca Borough Market, or head into town for further excitements. The tube from London Bridge to Green Park takes only seven minutes

Home truths: Unfortunately this home cannot take bookings for less than 2 nights. There is no hanging space available in the master bedroom, however there is a large wardrobe in the twin bedroom which should provide ample space for even the most extensive travelling wardrobe. On occasion the hot water can take a while to heat up. This home is a few floors above restaurants, meaning very occasionally a fire alarm may be set off....moreless
