Overview

About the property

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...

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

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!

Thanks Marc!!!

Super location, delightful property

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely quiet oasis amid the hustle & bustle and yet you have access to everything you need within a 5 minute walk - transport, groceries, restaurants and bars. Property is very clean, bright and has a lovely open plan kitchen (with all you need) and living area, perfect for relaxing and chatting at the end of the day. The little seating area outside was an added bonus in the hot weather. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

Just right

  • 5 of 5

We (me, my wife, and two sons aged 20 and 15) stayed here just last week, and it made for a great vacation. Being close to the underground station made it pretty easy to get wherever we wanted to go within London. The house was spacious and even though there was often a lot going on less than a block away, once you got in the house it was pretty quiet and felt secluded. It was the middle of a heat wave in London. So sometimes it was hotter than we would have liked. But you can't expect the property owner to change the weather! I would definitely stay here again if I get the chance.

Fantastic accommodation for families

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this well-appointed accommodation. We took the train from Gatwick Airport with our kids (aged 9 and 7) and arrived at the house with no problems. The home was clean and spacious and had great decor. We quickly settled in and made great use of the homes close location to the underground. Clapham was also a great area to explore with loads of great restaurants. Thanks so much! Would definitely give this a five star recommendation!

Great place to stay for time in London

  • 5 of 5

Had a very enjoyable stay at the Mews house for 5 nights. Very clean, comfortable and contemporary home. Lots of natural light and adequate space. My only caution would be the stairs. They are totally adequate if you are able bodied but if you have any challenges with stairs, while these are definitely not the worst they are a bit narrow then standard.

Enjoyed the neighborhood, as there were plenty of places to eat and a grocery store in very close proximity. The Underground and Overground were also very convenient at 2 to 3 blocks away.

The manager, Indre, provided very good customer service. She was there to meet us when we checked in and was very responsive to any issue we had. Would very much recommend this rental. Enjoy London, we did!
