An exclusive, newly-refurbished and redesigned mansion on the banks of the Thames in Barnes, one of London's most exclusive areas, minutes away from the city centre.
The mansion has 5 bedrooms - comfortably accommodating up to 10 people - and the option of accommodating up to 12 people with a converable 6th bedroom.
There is a large open kitchen with the latest professional appliances (a treat for any chef!), a bar area, a dining room that can comfortably seat up to 20 people for meetings or events, and a spacious living room with a piano and large sofas. Each of these rooms has a view on to the stunning private garden (which has an outdoor meeting/dining table, swings and a ping pong table), and access through tall glass sliding doors.
The mansion also features a games room (with a large air hockey table!), two utility rooms (including a laundry room), and plenty of storage areas.
Popular with celebrities looking to break away from the spotlight, this is also the perfect retreat for those who want to hold a special event or private meeting, or families who want to experience London as a local, away from the hustle & bustle of the city while being only minutes away from its centre!
Guests will have the full house to themselves - including the private garden - as well as use of everything in the house (e.g. fast WiFi, televisions, Nespresso machine).
Interaction with Guests
Property Manager - Joselle
I am currently travelling and exploring the world, so Joselle is helping to manage the property. She will be the one to respond to you, meet you upon arrival and look after you during your stay.
We can organise transportation for you to and from the house, as well as making any other travel arrangements throughout your stay.
We understand that many of our guests want to relax, so we try not to disturb you during your stay. But if you have any questions or issues, we are always just a phone call / message away, and are more than happy to help at any time.
And if you have any special requests - such as grocery shopping or even a fantastic private chef who cook up a sensational meal for a special occasion - please just ask! Most requests can be satisfied: we'll certainly do our best!
Barnes is one of London's best kept secrets. It feels like you're in the countryside, even though you are just minutes away from both the airport and Cental London!
The house is located in a tranquil estate, surrounded by plenty of green recreational areas, and even a pond with its own fish and ducks! As you approach the mansion from the high street, you will immediately appreciate the tranquility and beauty of the estate, which has direct access on to the banks the Thames (perfect for a morning jog down to Hammersmith or Putney!). All the residents are very friendly: there's a real sense of community here.
There are some lovely local delis, coffee shops, restaurants, a local grocery stors, hairdressers and even nail & beauty salons - all within a 5-minute walking distance of the house.
While Barnes is renowned for being one of the greenest and most peaceful parts of London, once you cross Hammersmith Bridge towards Hammersmith (a short walk from the house), London's famous bars, theatres, nightclubs and great parks such as Holland Park, Hyde Park and Kensington palace are only about 15-20 minutes via local transport.
There is also easy access to other Royal parks such as Richmond Park and Hampton Court, and of course Twickenham Stadium for the rugby, as well as The All England Lawn Tennis Club for Wimbledon. Chelsea and Fulham Football club are also less than 2 miles away.
On exiting the development, you can either take a bus (every 2 mins) over Hammersmith Bridge, from where you have access to 3 different underground (Tube) lines - the District, Piccadilly and Hammersmith & City underground - as well as buses, which go all over London.
The house is located about 25 minutes from Heathrow by taxi (we can organise transportation to and from the airport if required). Or if you're travelling with your own car, there are 2 available car parking spaces in front of the house.
Other Things to Note
The mansion is ideal for large families, groups or corporate events. It is located near the Eventim Hammersmith Apollo, Earls Court Olympia, O2 Shepherds Bush and Westfield.
Amazing property with great finishing touches. Absolutely thrilled with our stay. The only problem was we didn't want to leave :)
Where do I begin? When I found this listing I knew it was the house my husband and I hoped to rent for three nights so that we might host a casual dinner for about 25 people aged 20-35. We confirmed with Dmitry that he and Ilya were on board with the event, and he checked with their private chef to confirm the date. From there we were off and running, and Dmitry put in many hours working with me and the chef to be sure that everything went perfectly. When my husband and our two friends checked in we found the house spacious, sparkling clean, and extremely comfortable for our needs. Everyone had his own bedroom and bath, which was perfect for privacy and rest leading up to, and after, the big event. I love a dedicated HomeAway property, where you're not living around the personal belongings of a resident, and this house was perfect in that way: there was so much storage space for all our belongings and luggage, the laundry room was something I wish I had in my own home, and if anything at all was missing, such as kitchen linens for hand-drying the occasional dish or cutlery, Dmitry or Ilya were over in a flash to deliver it. There were plenty of clothes hangers, drawer space, spots for relaxation, a speaker system for amplifying Spotify, a beautiful backyard with two benches (one that swings) for lounging, etc. The dinner was beyond all our we could have asked or imagined: Renée, the chef, made a beautiful risotto, and even provided a second main course for the guests with special dietary needs. The guests enjoyed playing ping-pong, air hockey, and watching football on the large-screen television. Dmitry made sure that we had exactly the wine -- white and red -- that we requested from Waitrose, and even made sure to have two varieties of Kentucky bourbon (at our request) and mixers so that we could share our own culture with our guests. The entire experience was fantastic, and it was also wonderful to have an extra day after the event to recuperate and go out to dinner in London. (We recommend Portrait Restaurant at the National Portrait Gallery -- a lovely view of London in the spring and summer!) Dmitry also very kindly arranged for private cars to pick us up on the morning we left, one to take my husband directly to Heathrow, and the other to take my friend and me to Westminster Abbey for Matins and Holy Communion, during which the driver waited, and then took us to Paddington for our train to Oxford. In all, it was off-the-charts!
We needed a place which would wow our family this Christmas and accommodate our tribe. We were met by Iliya who was very welcoming and professional. First impression on entry into the house was a massive wow with a gasp for air as we strolled through this amazing and beautiful home. Every thing we needed to make this home from home was available and we were able to settle in immediately. IIiya and Dmitry were always on call ready to attend to any request we needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Our Christmas this year was perfect and everyone is still on a massive high. We will definitely be coming back in the very near future and would urge anyone contemplating on visiting this property to not have a second thought as you will be blown away.
What a house and unbelievable hosts! Dmitry & Iliya welcomed us with a big smile and I was so glad to meet them. They made our trip an absolute dream. The house was wonderful - the pictures don't do it justice! It's very big with a warm lounge, open kitchen and large bedrooms with en-suites! Lots of space for everyone. Everyone loved the stay and we would definitely recommend it to families or groups on business trips like us. Dmitry was available 24/7 and booked us cars whenever we needed, organised food, etc. He was always there to help and make our trip even better. I highly recommend this beautiful house and the amazing hosts. I'm so glad that I chose Iliya's house!
That is absolutely most beautiful house for large group of people spend holiday. The host lliya is very nice and thoughtful. He help us on booking car, food....He always available anytime when you need and show up within 15minutes. I really appreciate him!
Wow! We stayed at this beautiful house for a weekend and were blown away with it! Iliya and Dmitri were so very welcoming. Each guest that arrived at the house was shocked by how lovely it is; the spacious kitchen, the warm and inviting lounge, the plush bedrooms with huge en-suites... We were a party of ten and the house was perfect. Everything we needed was there, (everything!!), and the tube was a twenty minute walk or a very quick car journey. We particularly liked the air hockey table, as well as the lovely big dining table. We'd all stay again and make use of the exercise room, and the lovely garden! Thank you !
