Waterloo & Lambeth House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom, Sleeps 13

This is a fantastic family home in a residential area and with good transport connections.

Enter this property and you’ll see the original Victorian hallway tiles and at the front of the house, an elegant study. This room has a sophisticated style with warm red walls, an ornate fireplace and an antique desk. There’s also inset bookshelves, a piano and a sofa which can fold out to sleep 2 more guests.

At the back of the house you’ll find the airy kitchen and dining space. This room is modern, with a tiled floor and a long wooden table with benches and chairs where you can enjoy an evening meal with the whole family. The glass doors fold right back and bring the outside in. There is a large roof window above the other seating area which has leather chairs and a small table between – a lovely spot for reading the paper and enjoying a morning coffee. The kitchen space just around the corner is well-equipped with appliances, including an oven, kettle, toaster, blender, dishwasher and even a chalkboard wall!

If you head downstairs to the lower ground floor, there is a vast games room with wooden flooring, a flatscreen TV with a DVD player, Virgin TV channels and an Xbox. This room also has beanbags and a table tennis table and can keep the whole family entertained! At the back of the house on this floor there is a double bedroom which has a glass roof which has views up through the garden, (please note, the walk on glazing glass roof in the basement bedroom is frosted glass so allows light in from the garden but one is not able to properly see in). There is also a newly fitted bathroom with a shower, a sink and a loo. A luxury double air mattress can be set up in the main space on this floor and can provide another bedroom for 2 more guests.

On the first floor of this property you’ll find the large and elegant sitting room at the front of the house, decorated with warm colours. There’s an ornate fireplace and beautiful original cornices and a ceiling rose, as well as a chandelier and a large bay window with views onto the Common. The cream carpets, antique furniture and leather sofas make this a really comfortable room and a lovely place for an evening in.

Also on this floor is the single child’s room, with a single bed, a wardrobe and desk. This bedroom has a modern bathroom with a glass shower unit, a sink and a loo.

Head up a floor and you’ll come to a double bedroom which has aubergine walls, a dark wood double bedframe, a mirror-fronted wardrobe and a desk. This room also has an en suite bathroom with a glass walk-in shower, a sink and a loo. The master bedroom on this floor has a superking size bed, two chests of drawers and a dressing table.

Towards the back of the house there is a large white walled master bedroom with a cream carpet and a large double bed. There are two large double windows which create a light and have a spacious feel - they have stunning views as they look over Clapham Common. The room is furnished with dark wood including a dressing table, two bedside tables and two chests of drawers. There is also a built in wardrobe spanning the length of one wall. In the corner is the entrance to an ensuite bathroom. In it's current state, the toilet and sink are functional but please note this room is due to be refurbished and is currently used as both a bathroom and a laundry room.

Halfway up the stairs to the top floor, you will come across the terrace balcony, with a table, benches and chairs. This is a lovely spot to enjoy some al fresco dining and watch the sun go down over the city.

Carry on up one more flight of stairs to the loft bedroom, which has modern furnishings and a double bed under the velux windows. There are bookshelves, a wardrobe, a desk and a Juliet balcony which looks down onto the terrace balcony and across the neighbourhood. There is also another en suite bathroom in this room with a corner bath as well as a glass shower unit, a sink and a loo.

In the basement of this property there are utility rooms and there is also a guest loo on the ground floor.

This family home is in a lovely quiet residential area, whilst having plenty on offer and good transport connections. Clapham Common is right on your doorstep and is a great outdoor space for many activities, and also has ponds and is home to a good pub called The Windmill.

Northcote Road, just a 10 minute walk away, has a fantastic selection of shops, bars and restaurants with lots of different cuisines on offer. You’ll also find antiques markets and vintage shops to browse, cafes to enjoy coffee and cake, and toy shops for the kids too. There are some boutique and luxury shops along this stretch, Jamie Oliver’s Recipease store and there’s a market on Saturdays with clothes and organic foods.

You also have upmarket Chelsea just over the river and the famous King’s Road with its fine dining restaurants, bars and pubs . The 319 bus from Northcote Road will take you to Chelsea and Sloane Square in a few minutes, for more designer brands, and head to Knightsbridge for Harrods and Harvey Nichols.

Head to South Kensington for the Museums - Natural History, Victoria & Albert and Science Museums, and to Notting Hill for the famous Portobello Road markets where you'll find clothes, leather goods, furs, jewellery, antiques, street food and lots more.

For transport, it is less than a 10 minute walk to Clapham South tube station, which joins the Northern line. This line can take you to Leicester Square for the West End in 20 minutes and to Tottenham Court Road for shopping (this turns into Oxford Street) in 20 minutes too. To get to Covent Garden and the markets, it will take you less than 30 minutes.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a lovely time in the Clapham home. It was an excellent option for our large group. The house was as advertised and the cat, Merlin was an excellent host. It was easy booking with Vive Unique and communication before and during our stay was very good. We thought the home was excellent value and we would recommend booking with Vive Unique.

Clapham is a hub of activity, with a great range of restaurants, busy bars and cafes. On the high street, there is everything for an evening out, from steakhouses, to clubs, to independent cinemas, and many bars in between. Venn Street, near the Common, is a cobbled side street and home to Venn St Records, a quirky bar with a relaxed vibe and live music and restaurants with many different types of food.

Head to Clapham Common in the summer for a picnic or towards Clapham Junction there is another fantastic collection of eateries and drinking spots. Popular chains such as Vodka Revolutions doesn’t take away from the many one-off bars in the area, and on Saturdays you’ll find market stalls and antique markets to explore. Stroll along Northcote Road and you’ll find many trendy bars and restaurants, including The Bank in a beautiful period building, and upmarket boutiques as well as gelato shops, delicatessens and many upmarket interior design shops.

Clapham is a popular area for those in their twenties and early thirties, as well as families, with many large Victorian townhouses and both Clapham and Wandsworth Commons nearby. The neighborhood known as ‘Between the Commons’ is home to some lovely family homes. Nearby Clapham Junction is a large transport hub, with direct trains to Victoria and central London as well as to Gatwick Airport and other parts of the UK.
