Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Hammersmith & Fulham - Kingwood Road II
3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home close to the Thames and the River Café
A spoonful of sugar
Vanilla and cream, chocolate and honey – were it a dessert, Kingwood Road II would come with a health warning. And you won’t be able to get enough of this home’s delectable three storeys. The lavishly furnished kitchen is particularly country and definitely chic, while outside the garden’s white bench is well-placed for sun-basking. You’re on a quiet street, just a few minutes’ walk from the shops of Munster Road, and not far from the world-famous River Café. Stroll beside the Thames, follow the King’s Road into Chelsea or nip to nearby Kensington. Life is sweet.
Your hosts came to Kingwood Road II five years ago, and knew right away that they’d found their one. They stripped the house back to the brickwork, carefully preserving its original ceilings and fireplaces, and then set about projecting their personality.
A roll-top bath, printed wallpaper and a Mary Poppins iron bed give this home a picture-book quality. And indeed, once the door’s closed the real world seems far away. With its light florals and plump cushions, the sitting room’s gloriously comfy, while the table is lit by a rainbow-hues Murano glass chandelier. Six can dine upon its artfully distressed chairs, and dreams will certainly be sweet in any of the three bright bedrooms.

About Owner / Property Manager
onefinestay gives you the chance to stay in someone's place while they're out of town. You get to live their life for a few days and nights.

Nobody wants to be a tourist, so our homes come with recommendations from the people who live in them. For everything else, we're here 24/7.
Why Owner / Property Manager chose Hammersmith & Fulham
Lying comfortably in the west crook of the Thames, south of Chelsea, Fulham is languid, pretty and fulsome.
Glossy-maned girls and boys spend weekend afternoons making pavement cafés look positively continental, while their parents partake of lunch at the aristocratic Hurlingham Club – where the waiting list for membership currently averages at 15 years.
A big buzz also surrounds the upcoming Mile High pop-ups, with themed evenings from the Templeton family of restaurateurs throughout the year. Other fresh-faced talents can be found at the Studio 106 Art Gallery, a commendable not-for-profit organisation that promotes the bright young things of SW6 in frequent exhibitions.
The appeal of the enclave is bringing in the developers, with hundreds of new homes being built during 2013, concentrated at Chelsea Creek and Fulham Riverside, formerly Fulham Wharf. All of which will make this sometimes patchy riverside territory into an attractive habitat, raising Fulham yet another rung on the ladder to London stardom.
What makes this house unique
Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room, with online payment and confirmation. You get the same attention to detail and personal service too.
Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There’s a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities.
Once we’ve helped you settle in, we’re just a call away, 24/7. If it’s something we can’t solve over the phone, we’ll pop over to lend a hand.
And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them – places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
