About the property

4 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms Sleeps 8

Welcome to London.

And welcome to our home, which combines penthouse pleasures with family comfort. After all, my twin girls and I live here when we aren’t traveling ourselves.

Our penthouse home provides space, light, elegance and scenery across the top two floors of a prestigious five story building. An elevator with private key access whisks you up to reveal a home above the trees, graced with abundant windows and bathed in light. The private roof terrace offers panoramic views across London and is the perfect spot for a BBQ, sun downer or game of bocce ball.

Our home is designed for our style of family living. We are connected and so is our home. At its hub is a large, modern kitchen for meals, games and more. The kitchen freely flows to the two open reception rooms and up the stairs to a loft reception and our terrace sanctuary. When we need even more green space, we spill out to the 2 acre communal garden below. At the end of the day, we retreat to our four cozy bedrooms featuring two king and two double (queen) beds. Our home reflects our style mix, combining relaxed city and country comfort.

Our home is nestled in Little Venice, an enchanting central oasis. One of London’s prime residential areas, Little Venice features a stunning canal, serene tree lined streets and a jewel of a village high street. Walk comfortably to Notting Hill, Portobello Road and Regent’s Park or hop on the tube at Warwick Avenue to be anywhere in minutes. Take a guided walking tour of the area's famous places and people. Ship off on a charming canal boat to the London Zoo and Camden Market.

We love it and hope you and your family will too.

Fantastic central flat

  • 5 of 5

The entire experience was enjoyable from start to finish. Matt was very responsive and helpful throughout the process, responding to emails, coordinating with his housekeeper Andrea (who was fantastic) and checking up on us during our stay. The flat itself was spacious, welcoming and warm. Perfect for my entire family, including three small children. The outdoor patio was immensely popular as we enjoyed the cool evening breeze with our daily tea. Full amenities, cooking utensils, central to groceries, pubs, shopping and the tube. Couldn't have asked for a better location and stay. I would return without hesitation!

Lovely home, fabulous neighbourhood, private but with great amenities close by.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the neighbourhood and the privacy of this great home. Comfortable with all the amenities of home. Close to the underground and many restaurants etc. if you want to enjoy London but have a peaceful comfy haven to retreat to after long day sightseeing- this is the place.

Even Better

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved it. When you walk in, this place opens up and invites you in. Big, spacious and bright throughout. And a true home, not a sterile rental.

The area is central, peaceful and beautiful. Plenty of great shops and restaurants within a few blocks and a short journey to trendy Notting Hill, Soho, Camden, etc.

We were warmly greeted by the owner and his two kids, who went out of there way to make our stay enjoyable. Nice extra touches to settle us in and available for advice whenever we needed it.

If more homes on this site felt like this, I would abandon hotels forever.

Beautiful, Comfortable, Spacious, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Staying in this penthouse home was one of the highlights of our trip to London. The home was beautifully appointed and was comfortable enough for our family of 6 (plus more, if we'd had them). It's in a fantastic neighborhood with wonderful restaurants, grocery shopping, and wide boulevards, and it is very convenient to the Bakerloo tube line. The owner had fruit and water available upon our arrival, which was much appreciated after a long flight. We had a fantastic time and would absolutely stay again.
