About this listing
A beautiful Victorian house filled with funky and vintage design. Cute garden. Minutes from 2 stations taking you into Central London very quickly. Great for couples, friends and families. Sleeps 4 adults + 2 full size single bunk beds. (Kids or adults) Minutes from lovely big park.
We are renting out our lovely Victoria home in Streatham, with a modern recently extended kitchen South London. 3 bedrooms - a master bedroom, a spare room with a double bed and a nursery with a cotbed and a children's bed. We also have a spare travel cot and everything else you need if traveling with children.
The house style is contemporary, eclectic and quirky, full of new and vintage pieces, with books piled high in most rooms (in both English and Danish). End of a quiet leafy road rows of red brick Victorian terraced homes of historical significance - great if you want to be charmed by 'the real London!' :-)
We also have a lovely cosy garden with garden furniture, parasol and BBQ. .
Excellent transport links.....
Only half an hour from Gatwick Airport by train, all other airports can be accessed easily via public transport via train and (website hidden) Pancras International/Kings Cross direct train only 40mins. Or very cheap local taxi companies can take you anywhere for a fraction of the price of an official London black cab,
Central London Connections
Streatham Common Station is at the end of our street with fast connections to London Victoria, (Buckingham Palace) London Bridge and West London (including Shepherds Bush for Westfield Shopping Centre- the largest in Europe).
7 min walk to Streatham Station which connects us to London Bridge, Blackfrairs (for the Southbank, St Paul's Catherdral and the Tate Modern) and the City and Kings Cross/St Pancras (for the Eurostar)
2 min walk to our local park, Streatham Common which has a beautiful garden called the Rookery one of South London's hidden Gems. Lots of green spaces nearby - the main reason people choose to live South of the River Thames! (compared to built up, Claustrophobic North London ;-))
Great local pubs, friendly and full of interesting activities like craft fairs and farmers markets and a famous jazz club (the Hideaway).
Also the buzz of Brixton and Streatham Hill just down the road with cinemas, arty markets, bars, cool cafes, fantastic food and lots of live music if you fancy a busy night life.
Languages: both Danish and English spoken

We're a couple with 2 young children, Alia and Hannah. Lou is Danish and Shaff is British (of Indian Origin). Lou is a social worker and Shaff is a Children's Service manager and the founder of community sharing website (email hidden). In our spare time, Lou makes handmade children's clothes (scandi style) and Shaff makes documentary films. We like to keep busy and take the children out a lot.
