A fantastic king-size bedroom, with ensuite bathroom on its own floor in our large Edwardian home. We've created a contemporary, stylish design with a distinct international twist. Our house is on one of the most desired, leafy streets in Fulham, West London. It is just a short walk from great local restaurants, cafes & bars. Plus just 5 minutes from a leafy park and the River Thames. Under 10 minutes walk to Parsons Green tube station.
Our home definitely has its own distinctive style. We've retained the unique and original features of an Edwardian house (after all that's why you choose to live in an older property) and combined it with a very contemporary design. As a couple we've travelled extensively around the globe; combined with living in various countries in Europe. This experience comes through in our pictures, furniture etc which brings an individual, international twist.
You'll have access to the kitchen & dining room area though not to do your own cooking as we love to entertain. You can chill out in our urban garden assuming it's warm enough!
The Living Room is our own private space and where we relax at the end of a busy day.
Interazione con gli ospiti
As it's our home Chris and I will be around for a lot of the time. We'll definitely be here for your arrival and departure.
We see ourselves as your hosts although discrete and giving you privacy and your own space. Here to give you any advice regarding your plans or recommendations on places to eat or visit. Just ask...
We have a large, open-plan kitchen and dining area, which completely opens up onto an enclosed urban garden. So if it is a sunny morning, you can choose to have your breakfast ‘al fresco’. Or perhaps an early evening Aperitivo! Breakfast is quite an event and definitely memorable. One of Chris’s passions is cooking; so you will be in for a healthy treat and a few surprises. An international breakfast which includes ‘eggs anyway’. Or if you want a 'Full-English’ traditional breakfast, Chris will accommodate for a small additional charge.
Our house is very stylish, with an international spirit in its design and overall ambience. Chris and I love design. We’ve created a contemporary look with a creative twist; whilst maintaining many of the beautiful, original features. Everyone tells us our home has a very inviting, warm and friendly atmosphere, which you’ll definitely appreciate if you come and stay.
Dinner is not included in the standard package but we will happily cook for you if you ask. Chris’s cooking style is ‘Mediterranean’ but with an innovative & surprising twist. This would be an additional cost but well worth it. Just let us know before you come and if you have any restrictions; then wait for Chris to create a culinary experience for you.
Altre cose da evidenziare
We have a second double bedroom & private bathroom available (also featured on Airbnb), so if you are in a party of 4 it's easy to stay altogether with us whilst you are in London.
We are a 'smoke free' house and have no pets. So you will appreciate that neither of these are possible in our home.
As my consultancy business is based from home, we ask you to be 'out and about' by 10:00 hrs (11:00 hrs Saturday and Sunday) and back after 18:00 hrs. No doubt you will have lots of plans for your stay in London; so am sure you will be busy most of the time.
A truly international spirit, over the last 5 years Chris (my husband) and I have lived & worked in 3 very different countries in Europe. It's been a fantastic experience - definitely been one of the big highs in my life so far. A couple of months ago Chris and I moved back to our house in Fulham, West London. We'll be here for a few years before we embark on our next big adventure and realise our dream - launching an individual, original hotel & great experience in Europe. The challenge now is to decide the location!
So what are my passions? What gives me a real buzz and energy? Here's just a few to give you a 'taster':
- Experiencing new places & being fully immersed in different cultures: recent adventures have been to Cambodia and Myanmar. Next stop ... Central America.
- Outdoor activities: Snow-walking and hiking in the mountains (living in Zurich was a fab place for that!).
- Marathon running: working my way around different European cities. Although I don't really have much time to absorb the sites as I'm always focused on gaining a new 'personal best'! Next marathon will be Rome (March 2014).
- Interior design: creating an individual mark & style on a place that's an expression of Chris and me. Balancing contemporary design, an international flavour with an original twist.
- Entertaining: love having great friends over for a chilled evening. And always up for making new ones.
It's worth sharing that Chris is the natural linguist between us. He's fluent in German and French, plus can have a reasonable chat in Italian. During our time in Europe, I've learnt German and Italian but it's definitley not one of my talents!
Finally my life motto .... 'Everything is possible if you want it to be'.
Certainly, that's what I've found!
