This contemporary and stylish family home would make an excellent base for a family looking to stay in an upmarket area of London. The local neighbourhood of Fulham has lots of fine dining restaurants, gastropubs, bars and boutique shops. Nearby Parson's Green has many more eateries and shops to explore and a traditional pub called The White Horse, nicknamed ‘the Sloaney Pony’ next to the Green which is very popular. There is also a bustling street market selling fruit, vegetables and fish nearby.
Many families choose this neighbourhood as there is plenty to do and you are still within easy reach of fashionable Chelsea and Kensington or a short tube ride from central London. Eel Brook Common is only a stroll away for a picnic or walk with the children. Bishop’s Park is just a short taxi or bus ride away too and is well worth a visit. It has an adventure playground & lake which runs along the banks of the River Thames. The adjoining historic Fulham Palace & gardens, was once country home to the Bishops of London and hosts events throughout the year.
You can walk to the King’s Road in 3 minutes and amble your way East along this famous street checking out the designer stores, upmarket bars and fine dining restaurants.
Your nearest tube station is Fulham Broadway, only a 4 minute walk away, which is on the District Line. South Kensington for the V&A, the Natural History and the Science Museums as well as designer shops, is only an 8 minute journey and Oxford Street for shopping is 20 minutes away.
Head to Knightsbridge for the famous Harrods and Harvey Nichols department stores. The West End (Leicester Square) is only a 25 minute journey from Fulham Broadway, and you are also only a 10/12 minute walk from Imperial Wharf overground rail station and Chelsea Harbour with more high-end restaurants and bars.
