A three-minute walk to Clapham Common, this terraced house is perfect for escaping to lush, green parklands, but equally for exploring cafés, shops, and bars of the bustling area of Clapham. Start your holiday right, with an airport transfer and a fridge fill, courtesy of your host. Arriving at this beautiful home, you’ll notice immediately how inviting it is – the luxe lounge is painted in a pale, minty-blue with gilded chandeliers and mirrors bringing a gorgeous contrast to the colour palette. An upright piano sits proudly in the corner, and an acoustic guitar adorns the wall – anyone for a singalong around the fireplace? This family escape feels wholesome, traditional, and elegant. The kitchen, in its lovely array of creams and greys, creates a relaxed atmosphere. And to make it even more relaxing for you, your host can arrange for a private chef to cook dinner. The bedrooms are tasteful and sophisticated – some with bay windows looking out to the tree-lined street, others with ensuites featuring enormous tubs for soaking all night. And on summer mornings, take brunch to the garden for an alfresco start to the day (while the kids play in the paddling pool, or with one of the many toys they'll find at this home). There's even an outdoor heater if it's feeling a bit nippy.
