Former family home being let by room or the entire 4 bedroom apartment.

Beautifully renovated four bedroom maisonette minutes walk from the bustling and trendy Brixton Market and Clapham Common. This space is a dream to spend some quality time in, a quiet family orientated managed building with secure entrance and landing but with more room than you would expect in this classic family apartment. Spread accross two floors, with the living and entertaining space on the first floor and bedrooms on the second.

Each room tastefully decorated by an interior designer and with you, the guest in mind. One full Bathroom, one Shower Room and one Toilet means there are lots of facilities and the space able to accommodate an intimate couple or large group or family.

Kitchen Diner seating 5 or formal Dining Area for up to 8, two televisions, excellent high speed wifi and internet as well as separate Lounge. Space for everyone!

Located in Zone 2 with excellent links to the airports by the Gatwick Express train to Victoria or easy cab ride from Heathrow. Nothing is more than half an hour away but with loads of local amenities, shops, restaurants, a world renown market and the leisure of a fully park with lido, large green and mature forests - all this within a few minutes walk or bus ride.

Why Dustin chose Thornton

Fabulous recently renovated former family home! This is where it all started. The long summer days helping Mum entertain, reorganizing the space and managing the myriad dinner and cocktail guests may be partly to blame for my love of hosting and design. Once the family grew up and out, I was tasked with restoring a much loved home to its former glory; being first born meant I was the only one who could remember the original classic look before the wear and tear of 20 years of family life. According to the family, this was excelled in the renovation, with everyone wanting to move back! But no, this renovation was designed with you, the guest in mind and I certainly hope you appreciate the detail, effort and love poured into making our former family home a unique holiday experience.

What makes this apartment unique

Great views from either the front or back balconies, across the treeline and over the city. This is my enduring memory of the friendly family neighbourhood we grew up in and with many of the old neighbours still in resident and looking out for our guests. Auntie down the hall always on hand to help or offer any advise and Uncle has been known to provide lifts to the airport - but no promises! The space is generous and built with a family in mind, so easy to add to an already decadent home those final touches and modern conveniences to make your stay a truly special one.

The property was great and Michael was kind and accommodating for sure! Its slightly far away from downtown and quite far from the airport, so if you're coming in after the tubes are closed you'll need to drop a pretty penny to get there.

Other than that it was fantastic!

I am very happy with my stay, love it!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Dustin’s team, including Ben and Michael, ensured I was always in contact before, during and after my trip, ensuring I was supported all the way during my short stay. With advice, travel directions, recommended places to eat and visit, this felt very personal and nothing like the cold experience of staying at a hotel. The guys certainly looked after me and the place was even better than the pictures. A chic modern condo walking distance from the vibrant and busy Clapham and Brixton areas. The area itself is quiet and peaceful with a wide choice of local shops, parks and places to just relax and enjoy my experience of London living. Very highly recommended!

Molto bello!! - Very nice!!

  • 5 of 5

Come da descrizione, la casa comprende due stanze in un appartamento condiviso. Il ragazzo che ci vive dentro è molto cordiale e saprà darvi tutte le indicazioni che vi servono, inoltre il sabato notte il quartiere vicino alla stazione di Clapham Common si anima di vita, consigliato!!

As in the description, the house has 2 rooms in a shared loft. The 24 hours live-in boy is really sociable and will give you all the information you need, also, the zone around Clapham Common's station in the Saturday Night becomes full of life, recommended!!

appartement proche du centre grâce au métro à 10 minutes à pied. (très bien situé). Le propriétaire est très convivial et à l'écoute de ses hôtes, il nous a très bien renseigner sur les bus, les stations de métro et les commerces de proximité, dommage qu'il a du partir en urgence on n'a pas eu l'occasion de lui dire merci et au revoir. L'appartement est comme décrit sur l'annonce. Très bon séjour.
