About the property

3 Bedroomed house with garden provides oasis of calm in busy Chelsea

Set back from a central London street, inside this large, high ceiling three bedroom house offers calm and quiet, yet is only seconds walk from the bustling restaurants, bars, shops and cinemas of the trendy ¨Beach¨ area of the Fulham Road. It is also just minutes walk away from the Kings Road and River Thames and the amenities and museums of South Kensington. This Victorian house has recently been extensively modernized, opening up walls to make the rooms large, bright and airy and decorated by an interior designer to offer modern furnishings and original artwork whilst retaining its original charm. Spread over the four floors are a modern kitchen with large dining area, a double living room with several sofas, flat screen TV, DVD etc, a large master bedroom with luxury ensuite bathroom, two further double bedrooms and a further bathroom. The house has its own, totally secluded, 50 foot garden at the rear as well as off street parking to the front.

Comfortably homely - lovely taste !

  • 5 of 5

I stayed one week with my family (3 kids aged 13, 11 and 8) and we just loved it. It is conveniently located to ride buses to key London sites, roomy for everyone to enjoy a solitary break at the end of the day. Convenience stores and shopping experience are a stone's throw away.

The landlords have magnificently decorated the house, cosy, homely, fully-equipped for sel-catering and indulgence.

A Must !!

Perfect Place for Exploring London

  • 4 of 5

This was a very nice home, with a well appointed kitchen, good spaces to hang out in and very nice bedrooms. The artwork and books in the house give it a sophisticated feel. The owner was extremely responsive to any questions and concerns, as was the woman she's appointed to look after house. I would definitely stay there again. But I will reiterate what others have said - it is noisy. There is traffic, including ambulance sirens, right in front of the house. I am usually very sensitive to noise, but I used headphones and white noise and slept well. While noisy, the location is wonderful for easily walking to stores and restaurants or catching a bus or the underground to all areas of the city.

Great House, Host, & location...

  • 4 of 5

We recently rented the house and we had a great time. The house is roomy for a London flat, well kept, clean and although we had an issue, it was handled well and the same day by the local folks managing the property for the owner. We are a family of 5 with 3 older teenagers and all over 6' tall, so not always easy to find a comfortable location. Overall we enjoyed ourselves at the house and in the local area during our first trip to London. However there are a few items that may help prospective renters:

* The location is convenient with some very good restaurants and pubs in easy walking distance.

* The house was comfortable but the twin beds have a foot board which is difficult for taller people.

* You are near a hospital and you will hear the ambulances regularly but not so much at night.

* As with most places in London, no AC so if its hot outside - it gets hot inside, then windows open but this lets in much more noise. Evenings cool down well!

* For 1st timers - do the Big Bus Tour and get a weekly Oyster card! Local bus stop is very close to the house make it easy to get anywhere in London.

Thanks for a great time in London!

Perfect location and charming house

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this Chelsea house. We shared it with my parents and our two children. Everyone had plenty of space. The living room was perfect for a quiet night in or entertaining friends with a glass of wine, the kitchen was fully equipped and very spacious. We enjoyed leisurely breakfasts there every morning. The garden was a bonus and ideal for an Easter egg hunt on Easter morning. The house is very charmingly and tastefully decorated. If I could have a house in London this would be it!

Location and convenience in charming Chelsea

  • 5 of 5

As four 'fifty somethings' traveling for a high school reunion of sorts, we found the home to suit our needs to a 'T'. The home is quite spacious and the master suite is luxurious even by American standards. We love the neighborhood and found it convenient for launching day excursions or just venturing outside. The proximity to the Thames cannot be understated and affords picturesque walking options, including to Battersea Park. Note that there are lots of stairs as this is a four story home, but all in all a fantastic option. I plan to return with my husband sometime soon and there would be room for one of our adult children and their family as well to join us -- with privacy. Two grocery choices and many restaurants/cafe's in short walking distance. Tube stops are a bit away (15-20 minutes walk) but convenient bus routes will take you quickly to the tube stop or anywhere in London. This side of London is closer to Heathrow and also convenient to day trips like Windsor Castle, Hampton Court or the lovely Kew gardens.
