As the micro-neighbourhood of Chelsea Beach is nowhere near the coast, it might seem like an odd name. But we'd much rather be in this vibrant area of West London than a sandy coastline. You can't help but love its bustling array of bars, restaurants, and beautiful homes – the latter including this four-floor townhouse. As soon as you arrive, this striking Victorian building is sure to impress you. Entering through the front door from this leafy street, you’ll immediately be drawn to colourful features such as original artworks on the walls. Handsome period details, like a marble fireplace and claw-foot bathtub, blend neatly with the owners’ many arresting watercolours. With such high ceilings, the home feels incredibly spacious, with two entertainment-filled living areas and a jungle-like back garden. Wavy, paved pathways and stone urns make this feel like a Victorian pleasure garden (very fitting for the history of the home). And even more outdoor leisure activities await. Thirteen minutes away on foot, enjoy shopping on Chelsea's King’s Road. Or for culture, take a twenty-minute walk to South Kensington's museum quarter. The V&A and Natural History Museum are just as beautiful from the outside as the exhibitions within.
Home truths: *This home has a minimum stay of seven nights
*As this townhouse is set over four floors, you'll need to be able to climb stairs
* Your host doesn't recommend this home for infants or young children because of the glass tables – older children are welcome
* As you'll be living close to a major hospital, ambulance sirens are a fairly common sound in this location
* While the nearest tube is a twelve-minute walk, you can also park for free on the premises
* Shampoo is not provided in the bathroom, so you'll need to bring some along or head to a local shop
