Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Richmond & Kew - Lancaster Mews
2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, traditional house in a wonderful West London community
Down the Thames lies the lovely London village of Richmond. A magnet for the well-to-do and those with young families, here the mummies are yummy, the coffee, freshly ground and every loaf of bread seems to come with an extensive back story.
Down a storybook cobbled street sits Lancaster Mews. Outside may be traditional, but inside you’ll find an up to date home, furnished with the finest materials on offer. Chrome, marble, wood and lacquer combine to create an effect of subtle decadence. If you like the finer things in life, then Lancaster Mews will suit you to perfection.
Earning their stripes
Your hosts know how to enjoy themselves. Once in banking and corporate communications, they’re now retired and spend much of the year in Spain. Like their home they’re an elegant pair, loving nothing more than a stroll along the river, followed by a round of golf or a trip to one of Richmond’s two theatres.
Lancaster Mews was refurbished just four years ago, and you’ll find every surface a tactile delight. Cool aluminium, smooth leather and plush carpets welcome you at every turn. The front door opens into the dining room, with its zebra striped chairs and polished antique table. Head out to the patio for a drink, or next door into the sophisticated black and white kitchen.
On the first floor there’s a comfortable sitting room with an intriguing swirling coffee table and, next door, a study that doubles as a single bedroom. Here too you’ll find a granite and marble bathroom. Up one floor further and you’ll be in the master bedroom; here, much of the main wall is taken up by an exquisite Chinese headboard, softly lit by two burnished lamps. The ensuite is little short of spectacular, with its textured black walls, and, of course, our yummy White Company toiletries.
With cinemas, theatres, golf course and multitude of shops and restaurants, you’ll have to search hard to find a reason to leave Richmond, or if you just want to gaze out across the Thames then you can do so with ease. And when you’re ready to head into the city centre, the tube can have you in zone one in a little over half an hour.
