Perks for the Parents

A beautifully-decorated and spacious family home in Wandsworth Common, with a home gym, dedicated playroom and luxurious interiors. It sleeps 14 + 1. This home is beautifully set up for family life. Huge sliding doors open onto a gorgeous garden complete with climbing frame and slide, trampoline and wendy house, so you can watch on whilst the little ones play. On entry, there’s an enormous cloak room which is perfect for strollers, scooters and all the kids’ baggage. Parents will love this family-friendly area, which is full of green spaces, laid-back eateries and popular weekend markets.

Why Kids Love it

Children of all ages will feel at home here. There’s plenty of space in the living areas to play with the toys and books on offer, with different zones for TV watching and relaxing too. The basement has an enormous and well-stocked playroom with Montessori wooden play toys and handy art supplies, as well as a guest room for a nanny, tucked away at the rear. If they ever tire of this playful home, it’s just 30 seconds away from the lovely expanse of green space on Wandsworth common, with a playground and coffee shop just around the corner. Kids can use the host's bikes during the stay (currently for ages 3-5 and 5-7 years).

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights. The house has a fully-equipped gym, an infrared sauna, a steam shower and a massage table. The host can arrange a housekeeper, chef or babysitter to help as you require, for an additional fee. Cleaning during your stay can be arranged for an extra fee of £80. Air conditioning is available in the kitchen, dining room, both kids bedrooms and master bedroom, which helps to keep the rest of the house cool. The nearest station is Wandsworth Common and bus stops are close by, at the end of the street. The house has 1 off-street parking space if required.

About the Location

The house is located right on the doorstep of Wandsworth Common, in south west London. It’s roughly 40 minutes from Heathrow airport and close to all the great coffee spots and boutiques on Bellevue Road, Northcote Road and Earlsfield. Families will love a trip to Battersea Park (10 minutes’ drive) which has a tree-top climbing center, adventure playground and petting zoo. It’s just 20 minutes’ drive from Fulham or Chelsea for shopping on the Kings Road and 30 minutes from central London.

Accommodation Details

This London townhouse has 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, set over 5 floors. On entry, the exotic formal drawing room is found to the front. At the back of the house, the open plan kitchen diner, complete with Aga and Gaggenau ovens plus a Perrin&Rowe hot tap, opens onto a charming 45ft tropical garden. The basement level is home to the gym, play room and a queensize guest bedroom with bathroom. Upstairs on the first floor, the primary bedroom (with a kingsize bed) opens onto a gorgeous bathroom with a freestanding bathtub. The second floor boasts another queensize guest room, and the top floor features 2 beautifully-presented children’s rooms (1 single; 1 small double) both equipped with nightlights and alarm clocks. The host also has 1 double air bed, 1 single air bed and 1 double sofabed available for extra guests.

Style Notes

Colorful charm. At 4500 sq ft, this spacious home is blessed with luxuriously high ceilings (3.5 meters in parts) and wonderful natural light. Each area has been styled with a keen eye; showcasing antique light fittings and special finds from around the world. Colourful and sophisticated interiors are punctuated with vintage finds, while the polished finish extends throughout the house with vibrant wallpapers and well-framed artwork. The host has blended contemporary features (such as the crittall-style doors) with traditional styling, such as patterned textiles and window shutters. We love the eye-catching pink bathtub, the stained glass window feature in the hallway and the delicate blue of the kitchen cabinets.

Wandsworth, London

Leafy Wandsworth, in London's south-west corner, is known for it's family-friendly feel, giving it the nickname of 'Nappy Valley'. Weekend markets fill the streets, buzzing Northcote Road packs out with family diners, and kids scoot on down to Wandsworth Common for fresh air - all just a short stroll away from the River Thames.

We had a wonderful stay at the toast rack. The owner had pre sent us a full schedule of information on the house so everything was smooth for us. The house is SO beautiful and welcoming. We really felt at home. The house had been prepared for our arrival and we instantly settled in. I would definitely return to this home.

Leanne very kindly stepped into the breach when our previous booking was cancelled at the last moment. She was unfailingly helpful in accommodating us as we were a slightly larger family than she would normally accept. The house is beautiful, with a lovely small back garden with lots of activities for the children (we had 4 grandchildren with us ranging from 9 to 8 months). The basement is huge and my son really appreciated the gym - just the thing to help the nervousness of getting married the following day! We slept in the master bedroom which has an enormous and very comfortable emperor bed along with an impressive bathroom and dressing area. The kitchen is beautiful with an Aga as well as conventional cooking facilities - as I've used an Aga for the last 25 years (although a traditional model rather than this one) I was very at home, however other guests might benefit from a user guide!, the addition of air-conditioning here and in some of the bedrooms really helped on a couple of the warmer days. The proximity to Wandsworth Common (just at the end of the road) meant we were able to take short walks there for the children to let off steam, meet friends and play in the playground. The Toast Rack would give any family a lovely base for a stay in London, I can't recommend it more highly.
