Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Chiswick & Hounslow - Airedale Avenue
You’re a part of the family in this 4 bdrm Victorian house in leafy Chiswick
Knowing me, knowing you
From first thing in the morning, as the sun’s rays caress the rippling surface of the Thames, to last thing at night, when rowers store their oars and retire to the boathouse for a well-earned drink, Chiswick is all about the water. But if you’d rather look inland, you’ll find the landscaped grounds of historic Chiswick House and Turnham Green’s pretty shops and restaurants.
And it’s here that you’ll find Airedale Avenue. Filled with personal touches, from artwork by Banksy, to designer furniture to your hosts’ holiday snaps, you’ll feel part of the family.
Your hostess was born in Australia. She, her British husband, two boys and cat, love spending nights in with their enormous collection of DVDs, and, in precious quiet moments, watching the colours that dance through their home at sunset.
You’ll love Airedale Avenue’s stained glass windows and original Victorian tiled hall. The ground floor is entirely open plan, so the cheerful kitchen flows into the sunny dining room, and on into the funky sitting room. Here you’ve an aubergine velvet couch, a scrumptious floral rug, a large TV, and shelf upon shelf of books.
Upstairs, the first bedroom, a single, features contemporary artwork and a handy writing desk. There’s a family bathroom next door, and around the corner, the master suite, with its leather king sized bed, original fireplace and dark wooden floor. Let the cowhide tickle your toes as you pad over to the delicate ensuite, with its feminine furniture and free-standing roll topped bath. Then it’s on to the top floor, where you’ve another double, and a room that can be used for either sleep or play. Take your pick from a single bed or a double sofa bed, or stay up all night with the games consoles, and not one but two wide screen TVs.
Yours and mine
You’re just a hop and a skip from the Thames, and from there it’s a riverside amble over to beautiful Barnes, or the farmer’s market by Duke’s Meadows. Explore historic Chiswick House, or hit Devonshire Road for Michelin-starred food at La Trompette. Chiswick High Road is packed with cafes and pleasant pubs, or, if you want to get into town, the tube from Stamford Brook to Piccadilly Circus takes less than twenty five minutes.
