Stylishly furnished, contemporary London mews house, close to everything...
London is a very big city so this house, less than a minute off the everything-you-could-want Clapham High Street and two minutes to the underground station, is about as well connected to everything in London as you can get.
The house itself is set around a courtyard in a private development within a small converted Victorian school building and is very spacious, a bit loft style, with 2 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. A very chic contemporary mews house with excellent wifi and a very comfy feel.
The downstairs is an open planned recently ronvated living/kitchen area with an electric oven, gas hob, dishwasher and wash/dryer in the open planned kitchen. A large living and dining space with amble seating for both dinning and relaxing which then opens onto a private garden area. Upstairs are 2 double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room plus balcony and the main bathroom with bath and shower. This home is beautifully and stylishly furnished & decorated with wooden floors downstairs and carpet upstairs, it is ideal for anything from a few nights to longer term. Smart TV and cable make nights in a dream and the kitchen is able to deliver anything from a snack to a three course meal with the array of supermarkets and speciality shops on hand. Towels and bed linen are provided with a weekly maid service if required.
Clapham is one of London's villages encapsulating everything you need, from supermarkets, cinema, gym, bars and restaurants on the door step of the house plus the wide open spaces of the common. Only two minutes or so walk to the Northern line at Clapham North and then less then ten minutes to the West End or City. Buckingham Palace is few tube stops as is Harrods, Leicester Square and Covent Garden are straight up the Northern line, it's just too easy!
Perfectly placed, you will find it very difficult to find a property set so close to everything from transport links to shops, cinemas, a gym, a large park, children's play grounds and paddling pools on the common, covering pretty much all your local requirements. In a beautiful and unique setting, very private and secure, you'll never want for anywhere else to stay in London.

About Marc Field
Lived all over the world but have always had a home in London since Uni and now I'm settled in Australia I've more time to come back to the UK regularly. Preferring to stay in my own place then a hotel I've changed from long terms tenants to holiday lets. The house is fully furnished with I everything I may need when I staying in London on either business or pleasure. Love to cook, love a quiet night in but I'm a keen gym goer and need somewhere with places I can run, swim and work out close by. Anything you need to know please let me know.
Marc Field purchased this House in 1999
Why Marc Field chose Clapham Town
As you'll see when you stay there, it's fantastically located, to be honest if you look at maps of places available to transport hubs I'm one of the best located there is. Two minutes to the Northern line which is then 10-15 minutes either to the City or the West End. Easy for Twickenham or the Oval and easier for the trendy nightlife of Clapham and south London.
What makes this House unique
Well located but off the street in a small private courtyard development. The house and courtyard setting has a very European feel to it, very safe, very secure and very private. I've started to move some of my aboriginal paintings to the house to remind me of Australia whilst I'm here and I love the warmth they give the place as well as complimenting some of the 17/18th century architectural prints I also collect. I think the house has a great feel to it, it feels like a home...

The owner Marc was very responsive and accommodating throughout the entire process. He provided an excellent Information Sheet prior to our arrival that was very helpful about the property and the neighborhood.
The home was beautiful and modern and was a nice place to relax and get a good night sleep after a busy day sightseeing in London.
The home is located on a quite street and just a minute away from the Underground in a trendy and cool neighborhood. Home is only 10 minutes from London City center on the subway which was incredible.
Highly recommend this property to any future travellers as my family and I LOVE IT!
Hey Sebastian you hit bang on the head why I bought this house, and love this house! Marc
Restful, Clean, Comfortable and Spacious!
We loved this home! It was our first home away from home for several nights. A perfect place for unwinding after long days filled with sight seeing in busy London. The kitchen opens to a living space that was comfortable and relaxing where we could veg and discuss all we had seen that day. Idle left us with necessary provisions and there was a store just a block away. When we decided to explore the neighborhood we found the area lively but never heard sounds of traffic etc. and slept with the windows open. The beds were delightfully comfortable! We would stay in this home again upon returning.
GREAT STAY...GREAT LOCATION
Very nice layout for 3 adults, clean and comfortable...well stocked. Close to the Tube, Train and Bus Stop. Grocery stores, bars and restaurants nearby.
Our first VRBO and was a positive experience...would do again. Thanks for a pleasant stay!

Family friendly vacation home
My husband and stayed here for two weeks with our daughter (3.5 years) and it was a comfortable stay. Very hard to leave! Perfect location for our family of three with a little one. Grocery shopping and restaurants were around the corner as well as a library. Easy access to every mode of transportation (buses, tube and overhead train). We were able to travel easily throughout the city. Yes, the floors are creaky. The stairs weren't too bad - just walk on the perimeter towards the wall. Upstairs was quite creaky but we managed. It wouldn't be a reason for us to avoid staying here. Nice, clean property. Having a washing/drying machine was a huge plus for our long stay and the dishwasher made cleaning up easy in the kitchen. The property stayed nice and warm (we had some cold days for April) and what was especially nice is that there is an enclosed entrance once you open the front door to keep shoes in and that helped prevent tracking dirt inside. The one thing I would recommend, if you're a light sleeper, is ear plugs. There were birds chirping from 2am into the early morning hours. It didn't bother us, we still slept quite well, just something to be aware of. I much prefer the sound of birds over traffic noise and loud party goers (which we did not hear at all due to the location and the unit being in a courtyard). A great stay! We would definitely stay here again and would recommend to others!
Hi Sadie, I'm so glad you had a great stay. I had the stairs tighten up when we reno'd downstairs earlier this year. I hadn't noticed they made any sound the last few times I was at the property but I'll keep my ears opened when I'm there again in a few weeks. Very best, Marc
Love the place, will rent again
This place is better than I expected. It has everything listed and more. We love the tower warmer (not sure if that’s the correct name ), just hang it and everyday we got warm and dry tower.
Location is great, just 5 minutes walk to the Nothern tube station, very convinient. The house is very clean and remodeled well. Highly recommended.
Thank you. So glad you had such a great time and look forward to having you back at anytime. Very best, Marc
Great spot to stay for a London visit!
Marc's place was perfect for our long weekend in London. I visited with my two teenagers and there was plenty of room and tvs for everyone. It is close to the tube stop which makes it easy to get just about anywhere. The flat is comfortable and well stocked. Clapham is adorable area with lots of restaurants close by and a lovely park up the street which is great for running or walking. I would recommend this to anyone looking to stay in London.
Hi Susan, thank you for the review and so glad you had a fantastic stay. Very best, Marc
Literally 2 minutes walk to Clapham North tube line direct to the west end and city, railiway with links to Twickenham & the Oval. Everything on the door step from supermarkets and a great high street, bars, restaurants, Clapham Common, gym and swimming pool.
