Overview

About the property

Stylishly furnished, contemporary London mews house, close to everything...

London is a very big city so this house, less than a minute off the everything-you-could-want Clapham High Street and two minutes to the underground station, is about as well connected to everything in London as you can get.

The house itself is set around a courtyard in a private development within a small converted Victorian school building and is very spacious, a bit loft style, with 2 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. A very chic contemporary mews house with excellent wifi and a very comfy feel.

The downstairs is an open planned living/kitchen area with an electric oven, gas hob, dishwasher and washing machine in the open planned kitchen. A large living and dining space with amble seating for both dinning and relaxing which then opens onto a private garden area. Upstairs are 2 double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room plus balcony and the main bathroom with bath and shower. This home is beautifully and stylishly furnished & decorated with wooden floors downstairs and carpet upstairs, it is ideal for anything from a few nights to longer term. Smart TV and cable make nights in a dream and the kitchen is able to deliver anything from a snack to a three course meal with the array of supermarkets and speciality shops on hand. Towels and bed linen are provided with a weekly maid service if required.

Clapham is one of London's villages encapsulating everything you need, from supermarkets, cinema, gym, bars and restaurants on the door step of the house plus the wide open spaces of the common. Only two minutes or so walk to the Northern line at Clapham North and then less then ten minutes to the West End or City. Buckingham Palace is few tube stops as is Harrods, Leicester Square and Covent Garden are straight up the Northern line, it's just too easy!

Perfectly placed, you will find it very difficult to find a property set so close to everything from transport links to shops, cinemas, a gym, a large park, children's play grounds and paddling pools on the common, covering pretty much all your local requirements. In a beautiful and unique setting, very private and secure, you'll never want for anywhere else to stay in London.

About Marc Field

Lived all over the world but have always had a home in London since Uni and now I'm settled in Australia I've more time to come back to the UK regularly. Preferring to stay in my own place then a hotel I've changed from long terms tenants to holiday lets.

The house is fully furnished with I everything I may need when I staying in London on either business or pleasure. Love to cook, love a quiet night in but I'm a keen gym goer and need somewhere with places I can run, swim and work out close by. Anything you need to know please let me know.

Marc Field purchased this house in 1999

Why Marc Field chose England

As you'll see when you stay there, it's fantastically located, to be honest if you look at maps of places available to transport hubs I'm one of the best located there is. Two minutes to the Northern line which is then 10-15 minutes either to the City or the West End. Easy for Twickenham or the Oval and easier for the trendy nightlife of Clapham and south London.

What makes this house unique

Well located but off the street in a small private courtyard development. The house and courtyard setting has a very European feel to it, very safe, very secure and very private. I've started to move some of my aboriginal paintings to the house to remind me of Australia whilst I'm here and I love the warmth they give the place as well as complimenting some of the 17/18th century architectural prints I also collect. I think the house has a great feel to it, it feels like a home...

Perfect Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

There were 3 of us travelling from New Zealand so our arrival after 29hrs of flying was to say anxiously waiting to get into our accommodation and relax. and we were not disappointed...Having liaised with Indre before our flight left and on arrival we were delighted to be shown this oasis behind enclosed gate!.. It was everything we could have asked for and more .. it suited us perfectly, all the facilities, amenities,quietness, convenience. and in know time we were over the long flight and out walking Clapham Common. We chose to travel by bus as weather was perfect and enabled us to travel through various boroughs to reach Chelsea, Knightsbridge wherever.. it was easy!! Being close to shops and restaurants we could pick and choose as we felt to eat in or dine out.The weather was perfect and we enjoyed having a glass of wine outside in the courtyard. We loved it and were sad to leave and most definitely would recommend this property. Many thanks Marc.. we will be back one day!! -- Margaret

Great stay in London with the kids

  • 5 of 5

Great house, good location and has everything you need.

We stayed with two small children and it was a better alternative than a hotel as we could put the kids to bed and then enjoy our evening. Very spacious with lots of room for storage and the washing machine and airing cupboard prove very useful!

Would highly recommend.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

I'd highly recommend this holiday let to anyone looking for a place to stay in London. The property was well equipped, spotless and surprisingly quiet given how close it was to the high street. It's within a secure courtyard so felt very safe too. We cooked one evening and found the kitchen had all the equipment we needed, but we were only a very short walk from lots of restaurants, bars and pubs (I fell a bit in love with The Falcon and its sunny garden) so no need to cook at all. The owner provided absolutely all the information we needed beforehand, possibly the most detailed pre-arrival info I've ever seen! Indre, who met us at the property and explained various bits and bobs to us was also communicative prior to our arrival and friendly too. The property is only a short walk from the tube station but we found minicabs to the West End were cheap and easy instead. In the pre-arrival information the owner said he'd welcome any suggestions - I don't have any, it was perfect! I'd happily stay there again next time I'm in London

Convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Marc responds to us immediately and Indre was there to meet us when we arrived at the property to ensure our questions are answered and showed us around the place.

Grocery and restaurants are all around the corner so it's very easy to access and the tube is only a few minutes walk. The bus stop is around the corner as well, we've taken the opportunity to take it as much as possible, it's like having a mini tour of London.

Overall we would stay there again if come back to visit. Thanks Marc!
