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 recently ronvated living/kitchen area with an electric oven, gas hob, dishwasher and wash/dryer 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 London

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...

London Mews-A Great Place to stay in London

  • 5 of 5

I think rentals start with the owner! Marc is an excellent person to work with. You unlock the door on the street to enter a quiet courtyard with just a few condos inside. The downstairs of this condo is spacious and bright with a patio door leading to a small patio. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a family bath and master bath with shower. The master has doors leading to a small deck. It was perfect for us and the couple we were traveling with. The location is within a 5 minute walk to the tube and bus stops. There is a small grocery store on the way from the tube stop. We bought an Oyster Card before our trip and it was great for traveling all over London and this condo's location was a plus. I would highly recommend this condo for a small family, friends traveling together or a couple.

I will stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week in this delightful home, it was everything I was promised plus more. The location is perfect , quiet , comfortable and stylish. It was so easy to walk into different parts of Clapham, Wandsworth and the surrounding suburbs. Jumping on the train was simple and in 20 minutes you could be in central London, or many other places of interest. One day I went into Borough markets to do my shopping there and back in an hour it was terrific.

Spoilt for choice with many restaurants, cafes , and cute side streets with lovely gourmet food shops. Saturday morning food market was really good as well.

The house is very well equipped, everything worked and the beds were really comfortable.

Thanks to Marc my stay was perfect and I will definitely come back !

Conveniently located to the Tube, grocery store, restaurants, and bars.

  • 4 of 5

Very nicely appointed home in a very quiet courtyard. The Tube stop (Clapham North) is a very short walk from the house. There are grocery stores, restaurants, and bars within a few blocks. We felt very safe, though you may find the nearby bars a bit loud on Saturday night, the rest of the time is very quiet. We would love to return to London someday and stay there again! Marc (the owner) and Indre (on sight contact) were very responsive and great to work with.

Owner's Response: Hi Gretchen, I'm so glad you had a great stay! I've never noticed the bar noise before but I sleep like the dead. I'll keep an ear open when I'm at the house a bit later this year to oversee the new kitchen and painting etc. Very best, Marc
