Perks for the Parents

An effortlessly stylish period home with its own private garden in the heart of pretty Pimlico village. It sleeps 4. The residence combines elegant traditional features with contemporary design to create a luxurious, cozy home. A clever use of space provides room for all the family with a living area divided into separate nooks to accommodate a traditional sitting ‘room’, a sperate TV zone and an alcove home office. On warmer days, the pretty, private garden is the ideal sunny spot for parents to unwind and kids to play in, with an outdoor table for alfresco dining. The residence’s location is a real perk with cafes, bakeries, wine shops and boutiques just minutes’ walk away. Victoria and Chelsea are on the doorstep, playing host to some of the best theatre, art galleries, restaurants and boutiques that London has to offer. Pimlico tube is less than 5 minutes’ walk away providing easy access to the rest of London.

Why Kids Love it

An ideal city base for kids of all ages, with playgrounds, river walks and some of London’s best family friendly parks and museums within easy reach. The river Thames is just 10 minutes’ walk away with tow paths leading to Chelsea, Big Ben and the Tate Britain gallery, which plays host to regular events for kids and young adults. The Thames clipper boat can be caught from the Millbank pier here for a fun alternative way to see the city. Across the river is Battersea Park with acres of run around space in addition to a zoo, a boating lake, multiple playgrounds and a Go Ape treetop rope course. Victoria and Pimlico underground stations are a short walk away with fast access to the Natural History, Science and V&A museums in Kensington. For chilled out days, the residence is the perfect place to unwind with a TV room for movie screenings and plenty of garden space to spread out in.

Style Notes

Classic elegance. This stylish period residence fuses the modern and the traditional to create a sophisticated yet comfortable home base. Original features including hardwood floors, plaster detailing and ornate fireplaces are complimented by an elegant paint palette and contemporary glass additions bringing in plenty of light as well as space. A curated collection of art, sculpture and wall hangings inject color and character throughout, with rich textiles for an added touch of luxury. Downstairs the bedrooms are classic and cozy with soft, cool greys complimented by warm neutrals and textured sisal floors. We love the multiple gathering spaces in the residence - from the refined sitting room to the modern, glass kitchen/diner where the doors can be flung open to access the pretty walled garden.
