Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Wembley & Brent - Aylestone Avenue
5 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Home With An Enormous Kitchen/diner And A Lovely Garden
The art of timelessness
For those with a yearning to escape the constant beating of time’s wingèd chariot, Ayleston Avenue is the perfect place. And if, in the words of Henry Thoreau, you could kill time without injuring eternity, then a spell in this spacious, tranquil home might just make that possible.
With five bedrooms, cosy sitting room, and enormous kitchen-diner opening on to the mature back garden, there's little this home can't offer. There's also an abundance of park life close by, and funky Notting Hill just a short way away for something more up-tempo.
Your hostess counts time in heartbeats as a consultant cardiologist, and her husband is a successful food and wine writer for the Times. They share their beautiful home with three children, and a dog.
Deserts of vast eternity
The gracious Edwardian architecture and original features of this stunning, light filled home may transport you back in time to La Belle Epoque, but you won’t be fooled for long. With the elegant integration of antique and contemporary furniture and design you’ll feel entirely planted in fashionable 21st century London.
An expanse of floorboards, windows, and whitewashed walls will lure you in to the formal sitting room. Stretch out restless pinions on the large squashy sofa, and relish simply doing nothing at all, for aeons. Wander through to the vast light kitchen and dining room with cosy tv area and whip up a very long, late lunch. Admire the glass lights hanging like droplets above the gorgeous vintage table and chairs, and wander through the patio doors in to the garden. The children will have no doubt already found the trampoline, swings and slide, giving you time enough to unwind.
Upstairs, wash away any traces of the quotidian in one of the white and splendid bathrooms. Then, as nighttime approaches, bargain with Chronos for just a few hours more before you take your pick from a large wooden sleigh bed, or an antique French bed in one of the graceful double bedrooms. The two expansive and tastefully pink girls rooms are more than ample to accommodate a plethora of imaginative and protracted games. And to top it all, the quirkily shaped roof floor above is a covetous bedroom for a boy.

Whiling away the hours
Your timetable needn't have many blank spaces with such a choice of great locations nearby. Vibrant Kensal Rise and the gorgeous Queens Park are virtually on your doorstep, and there are excellent transport links for some time out in central London, or to Hampstead Heath, Kew and Richmond. If you're heading to town, the Jubilee line will get you there in around half an hour.
