Overlooking the lovely green spaces of Hampstead Heath, this vacation home for rent in London is the private residence of an avid international traveler, artist and photographer and has been carefully renovated without disturbing the graceful lines and architectural features that are unmistakably Victorian.
The tall, townhouse profile climbs three storeys high (note that there are many stairs!) and is one of many 18th century homes along the heath.
The interiors are a riot of deep, saturated hues and creatively composed design themes that highlight the ornate beauty of the building. The double lounge on the ground floor includes the dining room on one side and a sitting room opposite, both with marble fireplaces as well as a fully equipped kitchen with doors leading out to a private garden and courtyard.
There’s a cozy study and library upstairs overlooking the gardens as well as a media room along with an ensuite master bedroom on the first floor, also with it’s own fireplace. The three additional double bedrooms are at the very top of the building with room for a total of eight guests.
An inspired, family friendly retreat, this lovely grand dame’s beauty and location will charm you.
Host welcome and welcome basket, Wifi, cable TV/home cinema, kitchen and bath essentials, safety features, laundry facilities, climate control, optional luggage drop allowed on early arrival or late departure.
Spanning from Hampstead to Highgate at one of the highest points in city, the ancient and massive oasis of Hampstead Heath in north London covers almost eight hundred acres and is one of the city’s loveliest public spaces. The wooded grassy spaces and swimming ponds are a breath of fresh air and create a rambling forested place for both city dwellers and even local wildlife. Surrounded by stately 18th century homes to the west and with the city sprawled out below, it’s a world all its own with a intimate village feel.
A truly global and multicultural city, London’s historic splendour and iconic landmarks are legion, from Westminster Abbey and Big Ben to The Tower and Buckingham Palace, the city is a blend of world heritage and modern capital might all contained within it’s original medieval boundaries along the Thames.
The glittering west end neighborhoods of Knightsbridge, Mayfair, Soho, Kensington, Notting Hill, Chelsea, Portobello Road and Camden encompass the core of the city which also boasts more lush parkland than any other world capital and an abundance of variety to discover.
