Perks for the Parents

A characterful townhouse bursting with color, set on a leafy street in Stockwell just a short walk to the Underground station. It sleeps 8. This light, bright period residence comes with a notably spacious garden. Combing lawned areas with a sun terrace, colorful planting, an alfresco dining area and a BBQ, it's the perfect hangout space for a summer's evening or lazy weekends. The well-designed kitchen extension has glass bifolds on two sides so guests can enjoy the English garden views whatever the weather. For cooler days, the drawing/living room is the ideal space to cozy up in with original fireplaces, well-stocked bookshelves, a TV and plenty of sofas to sink into. For those needing some quiet space, the third bedroom has a putaway bed to transform it into a roomy office when required. The residence is just minutes’ walk from shops, cafes and many good pubs as well as pretty Slade gardens, ideal for when the kids need to let off steam. Stockwell underground station is just 6 minutes’ walk and is serviced by both the Victoria and Northern lines providing quick access to central London. Stockwell is just 2 stops from Pimlico, close to the trendy restaurants, boutiques and galleries of Chelsea.

Why Kids Love it

Private lawned spaces are a London rarity and kids will have the run of one here. With plush grass perfect for play and picnics, and a BBQ for family cookouts. Inside, spaces are bright and colorful and the kids have their own bunkroom for sleepover style fun. There are several local parks within easy reach, with Slade park on the doorstep and Myatts Fields just a 10 minute walk or 5 minute drive, with a water splash park in the summer months and a lovely café. Battersea Park by the river Thames is a 15-minute drive away and has a kids’ zoo, a boating lake, tennis courts and several playgrounds. Stockwell tube station is within easy reach and will whizz kids up to Green Park for Buckingham Palace or London Waterloo for the Southbank and London Eye in minutes. It is only 3 stops from Victoria for fast connections to the world-famous museums of Kensington including the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and the V&A, as well as the Diana memorial playground at Kensington gardens.

Things to Know

Minimum stay 7 nights. The residence is set over 2.5 floors and does not have an elevator. There is a good WiFi. There is a washing machine at the residence. The fireplaces are ornate rather than working. For guests needing to work, bedroom 3 has a put-away bed and can be set up as an office. Sorry - no pets, no parties and no smoking. Check in: 3pm; check out: 10 am.

About the Location

The residence is nestled on one of Stockwell’s prime residential streets, just a stone’s throw from the local underground station and a number of bus routes which will take guests speedily north of the river, as well as to Clapham and Brixton in the south. Clapham Common and Brockwell Park are both a 10-minute drive away, and are perfect for letting the kids let off some steam with play areas, and cycling/scooting paths. The latter has an outdoor lido and pool-side pizza café, particularly popular in the summer months. For cricket fans, The Oval is just 20 minutes’ walk or 1 stop on the tube, with live matches throughout the year. Stockwell underground station is 6 minutes’ walk from the residence with fast connections into central London. Oxford Circus is just 9 minutes away with the flagship stores of Oxford and Regent Streets, as well as easy access to London’s west end theaters.

Style Notes

Urban oasis. This pretty period home is filled with traditional features, from large bay windows and ornate plaster work to original fireplaces throughout. Uplifted by bright colorful walls and textiles, and accented by a modern extension to the back, it offers a perfect contemporary bolthole in the city. Surrounded by leafy greenery on the peaceful road at the front, and throughout the tree-filled gardens it overlooks at the back, guests might well forget they are in zone 2. We love the cute cottage garden with its mix of sunny terraces, beds of lavender and lush lawn – perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine after a busy day in the city.

Brixton, London

Lively and multicultural

Just 15 minutes from Oxford Street, this multicultural South London borough is bustling with markets, fantastic food and African/Caribbean shops. Take the kids to run and play - and maybe even swim - at Brockwell Park, which has a lido, or go to the Ritzy for a film on a rainy day. Brixton’s O2 Academy is one of the best music venues in London.
