About Adrienne Burgess
We are a couple who have worked mainly in the theatre and the arts, although Adrienne is now a writer/researcher specialising in fatherhood and Martin coaches in communications.
Adrienne Burgess purchased this House in 1985
Why Adrienne Burgess chose Central London
We purchased our central London home in 1985 and lived there until 2002. The moment we opened the door we loved it. It felt then, and feels now, as if only happy things have happened here - which can't possibly be true, since it's almost 170 years since it was built! We wanted to live right in the heart of London, and you can't get much closer to the heart than this. We also wanted a spacious house, with high ceilings and a sense of generations upon generations of people living there before us. And that is exactly what we got! We raised our family here, working from home, so the house has always been busy and full of children. When we left it, and downshifted to another part of London, we rejoiced that we didn't have to sell it, and that other people could now enjoy it too.
What makes this House unique
The remarkable thing about 'Pimlico' (the area in the London Borough of Westminster in which our house is), is that it is quite like a village, and yet it is right in the heart of perhaps the greatest city in the world. Neighbours know each other; our quiet street contains many family houses and has an active residents' association, the people in the shops are friendly, and yet it's cosmopolitan and fast-paced. In Pimlico you can be peaceful, yet never feel that life is passing you by.

Rooms were well.furnished and the kitchen fully equipped. The study room was a pleasant surprise and is done beautifully. Adrienne was fast to respond. Highly recommend.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. And yes, the conservatory-study seems to delight many: we always used it as our office/study when we lived in the house and raised our family there: windows on three sides surrounded by vegetation - a real retreat in the heart of London! We'd love to welcome you again: you were great guests.
