Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Highgate - Western Road

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cultured home with books and a matured garden

All in the planning

If London were to have an ivory tower, it would be Highgate. This is the residence of choice for so many of the city’s intellectuals, a number of whom rest here eternally beneath the mossy stones of Highgate Cemetery. The roads are wide, the air is clear, and the coffee houses reverberate with the chatter of curious souls. If you’re one of them, then in this home, filled with books, art and intriguing knick-knacks, you’ll find a space in which you can let your mind finally run free. There’s even a snow-white study up in the attic – and if you want to call it an ivory tower, we’d be the last to stop you.

Wit and wisdom

Your hosts are young grandparents with edge. A good-humoured pair, they’re cultured and well-travelled. He’s a businessman, and she’s a set and costume designer, hence the master bedroom’s dressmakers’ dummy.

Clever clever

The sitting room of Western Road is a relaxed, unfussy space, with original cornicing and distressed paintwork. The empty frame above the fireplace is ready to be filled with whatever your imagination can conjure, while the shelves and coffee table heave with books. The living area flows seamlessly into the kitchen and dining space, where there’s a fresh, rustic feel, with hanging pans and pots of basil just begging to be shredded.

There’s a second, more informal sitting room overlooking the sloping garden. A barbeque, a terrace filled with herbs and flowers and a seat beneath the gnarled tree – on summer nights this is a small corner of paradise. The guest bedroom has its own top floor sitting room, while the grand master has a walk-in wardrobe, leading to a pure white ensuite.

The high life

You’re in a particularly green part of London, so those who lust for chlorophyll will find refuge in Highgate Woods and Hampstead Heath. Visit Karl Marx in Highgate Cemetery, then return to the land of the living with a cup of tea in one of your pretty local cafes. Or, if you’re heading over to the West End, the tube from East Finchley to Leicester Square takes twenty two minutes.

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Highgate

The high life

You’re in a particularly green part of London, so those who lust for chlorophyll will find refuge in Highgate Woods and Hampstead Heath. Visit Karl Marx in Highgate Cemetery, then return to the land of the living with a cup of tea in one of your pretty local cafes.

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.
