Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Wembley & Brent - Purves Road
3 bedroom, 1 bathroom colourful, friendly home surrounded by green spaces
Sing and dance
Tap your toes and clap your hands because Purves Road beats to the rhythm of life. Cherry red, summer-sky blue, waddling ducks and falling leaves – if ever a home were to make you burst into song, it’s this one. So it’s just as well there’s a tuneful piano, high ceilings and a radiant new bathroom that simply demand an early morning serenade. You’re surrounded by green spaces and cafés, and if you’re in the mood for socialising a short cab ride brings you to Portobello Road and swinging Westbourne Grove.
With the band
Your host runs a music business, while your hostess works in fashion. When they’re not with their young children they’re out and about on the London scene, visiting art exhibitions and catching gigs from the stars of the future.
The sitting room is pale and relaxed with retro notes, and there’s a certain Scandi styling to the curvy chairs, the dotty rug and the painted floorboards. You’ll find an extensive record collection alongside the stereo and books, and next door in the playroom you’ve a vast range of board games to delight.
The scarlet kitchen will have you trilling with pleasure, while upstairs the children will be enchanted by the toys and murals in the two single bedrooms. Let them play on while the calm master lulls you to sleep.

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.
Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room. And there's service to match.
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 Wembley & Brent
Wedged between Kilburn and Kensal Rise in the northwest corner of the capital, Queen's Park has become a byword for quiet gentrification. Two-storey Victorian villas saved from being broken up into flats in an area largely untouched by modern development attract Londoners looking for a home that's a long-term prospect, rather than somewhere to hang a temporary hat.
Local festivals include the Queen's Park Book Festival, held in May, where literary names like Marina Lewycka and Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman impart bookish and editorial astuteness. Salusbury Road is smart enough to hold shoppers' attention, but for star-studded action head to Chamberlayne Road.
For interiors, Circus Antiques stocks rakish rarities and for evening entertainment The Lexi cinema is far removed from a multiplex. As the area itself, it's cultural, clever and very much a place to proudly call home.
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.
