Southwark house description
Hidden behind imposing 19th century garden walls is this stylish modern open-plan eco cottage in Central London. Experience the best of both worlds: a quiet village vibe but only 10 minutes by public transport to London Bridge or Victoria station (Buckingham Palace- St James Park)
After a busy day sight-seeing enjoy a soak in your own private garden spa with 40 muscle-relaxing jets or curl up with a good book by the blazing gas fireplace. Enjoy the experience of a pulsating rain shower in the wet room ensuite. And then to bed on a luxurious Tempur memory foam mattress with goose down quilts and hotel quality linen. A comfortable family home away from home.
Despite it's central location it's so quiet at night you'd think you were in a small English village. On-street parking is free. The house is located in a historic conservation area featuring million pound 18th century Georgian mansions. The gourmet restaurants, specialist food shops, organic butcher and designer boutiques of Lordship Lane are within walking distance including one of London best gastro pubs, The Palmerston. Local celebrities include actress Dame Judi Dench and former Prime Minister John Major.
Our property features a living sedum grass roof punctuated by skylights that open by remote control. The roof provides foraging opportunities for song birds and even the occasional urban fox. The modern design centres around a spacious open plan kitchen and living room area with a plasma TV with on-demand movies and floor-to-ceiling folding sliding doors that open onto a Japanese style garden decked in Brazilian hardwood with a fully equipped gas barbecue. The leather sofa converts into a double bed for extra guests. The kitchen has all mod cons including a full-size dishwasher, gas range stove with integrated griddle (perfect for pancakes), a Nespresso cappuccino maker and an American style fridge freezer. The utility room houses the washer and dryer and controls for the underfloor heating system and wireless internet broadband. Bleached solid oak flooring and in-ceiling speakers with a Sonos sound system that includes more than 8 million tracks, that can be customized into personal playlists, complete the picture. You can listen to radio stations from around the world that stream via the web. Perfect for catching up on local news back home.
The outdoor jacuzzi is framed by mature overhanging lime trees.
The property's mascot is a pet blue and gold macaw named 'Harpo'. He lives in an aviary off the kitchen. He's friendly and low maintenance but we're more than happy to move him to one of our other properties during your stay.
I'll meet you at the property and explain everything in detail. Weekly maid service is included. Airport transfer can also be arranged
