The garden maisonette is located in a peaceful Georgian enclave in the heart of central London. It is a stylish, airy and modern space, designed by award-winning architects. It's also extremely comfortable - a loved home full of character and interesting artefacts from around the globe.
The maisonette opens out onto a beautiful garden with outdoor lighting. The ground floor comprises a big open plan living room, dining area and kitchen with a stunning glass conservatory and limestone floor which has underfloor heating throughout - so your bare feet will always stay toasty warm even in the depths of winter!
The first floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom. The bathroom is brand new and again designed by architects. It's a 'wet room' with a huge rain shower, oversized sink, heated slate floor and heated towel rail.
The master bedroom overlooks the tranquility of the garden which backs onto a private cobbled mews and has the original wooden flooring.
The front bedroom is extremely quiet and also has a big window and wooden flooring. It has a funky treehouse bed for a kid and also a sofa which converts into a comfortable double mattress.
The maisonette is in a Grade II listed townhouse set in a leafy, safe conservation area of Georgian London. Whilst the area is very quiet, the vibrant neighbourhoods of Islington, Bloomsbury and Clerkenwell are just five minutes away, offering theatres, cinemas, museums, a fantastic range of shops, bars and restaurants. With King's Cross and the Angel tube stations less than ten minutes walk away this is the ideal hub for almost anywhere in London. There is a historical walk from my doorstep through Clerkenwell past St Pauls Cathedral to the River Thames and Tate Modern. It is also a few minutes walk away from one of London's most authentic 'cockney' markets - where you can still buy fresh lobsters for £5 at weekends!
I am happy to welcome 1-4 people.
Guests will have access to every mod con in the apartment - with a fantastically well stocked kitchen and brand new outdoor gas bbq. I also leave out all my books, DVDs and music for guests to enjoy.
Interaction with guests
I rent the maisonette out when I am not there so will probably meet you at the beginning and end of your stay.
I offer a MINIMUM OF 4 NIGHTS - and prefer stays of 7 nights plus.
I hope you have a wonderful stay and feel at home here. I have a good relationship with my neighbours and would like to keep it that way! Noise carries from the garden to all around. Please try not to play loud music after 11.00pm or have loud conversations in the garden late at night.
I'm a born and bred Londoner and have lived in this house for the last decade. I am a filmmaker so often away for shoots. I love my place and hope that anyone who stays here feels at home and loves it too!
