We’ve heard it said that anyone can whistle. But few indeed are homes like Whistlers Avenue. This melodic house in a quiet, gated community rings out with colour, blending the contemporary and the antique in happy harmony. You’re right next to the Thames, with the designer delights of the King’s Road just a ten-minute walk. But before you join the jet set, be sure to get to know charming Battersea, with its cafés, shops and the green expanses of Battersea Park mere minutes away. As cheering as a Christmas carol, as exhilarating as an aria, this is a tune you’ll be humming for years to come.
They got rhythm
Your hostess runs opera and literary festivals, and she’s passed her love of all things musical onto her violinist daughter. She spends much of her time in her main home in Derbyshire, but counts her Battersea neighbours among her closest friends.
There’s a real ease to this home, its rooms chiming together in a crescendo of comfort. The sitting room’s shaded in cream and scarlet, with snugly sofas and doors opening out onto the decked garden, while the new kitchen is smoothly sophisticated in brushed chrome, the elegant dining table perfect for candlelit dinners. There are two bedrooms – a twin and double – and two bathrooms, so no one ever need interrupt your morning chorus. But when you do long for an accompaniment, make use of the street’s many bus stops and let the buzz of the city form your backing track.
