The house is located inside the famous Harrods Depository on the banks of the Thames in Barnes, one of London's most exclusive areas. The newly-refurbished house has 5 bedrooms, comfortably accommodating up to 10 people, and features a large designer kitchen with the latest professional appliances (a treat for any chef!), dining area & lounge, living room, and study area, as well as a secluded private garden, and a roof terrace with beautiful views on to the historic development.
Popular with celebrities looking to break away from the spotlight, this is also the perfect retreat for those looking to hold a special event or private meeting, or families who want to experience London as a local, away from the hustle & bustle of the city while being only minutes away from its centre!
Guests will have the full house to themselves, including the private garden and roof terrace. As well as use of everything in the house (e.g. fast WiFi, televisions, Nespresso machine, computer), guests will have access to the leisure centre, which features an indoor heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, gym, sauna and steam room.
Interaction with Guests
Property Manager - Jennifer
I am currently travelling and exploring the world, so Jennifer is helping to manage the property. He will be the one to respond to you, meet you upon arrival and look after you during your stay.
We can organise transportation for you to and from the house, as well as making any other travel arrangements throughout your stay.
We understand that many of our guests want to relax, so we try not to disturb you during your stay. But if you have any questions or issues, we are always just a phone call / message away, and are more than happy to help at any time.
And if you have any special requests - such as grocery shopping or even a fantastic private chef who cook up a sensational meal for a special occasion - please just ask! Most requests can be satisfied: we'll certainly do our best!
Barnes is one of London's best kept secrets. It feels like you're in the countryside, even though you are just minutes away from both the airport and Cental London!
The house is located in a gated development with plenty of green recreational areas. Upon passing through the main gates (just after a beautiful domed fountain), you will immediately appreciate the tranquility and beauty of the development, which has direct access on to the banks the Thames (perfect for a morning jog down to Hammersmith or Putney!). All the residents and staff are very friendly: there's a real sense of community here.
There are some lovely local delis, coffee shops, restaurants, a local grocery stors, hairdressers and even nail & beauty salons - all within a 5-minute walking distance of the house.
While Barnes is renowned for being one of the greenest and most peaceful parts of London, once you cross Hammersmith Bridge towards Hammersmith (a short walk from the house), London's famous bars, theatres, nightclubs and great parks such as Holland Park, Hyde Park and Kensington palace are only about 15-20 minutes via local transport.
There is also easy access to other Royal parks such as Richmond Park and Hampton Court, and of course Twickenham Stadium for the rugby, as well as The All England Lawn Tennis Club for Wimbledon. Chelsea and Fulham Football club are also less than 2 miles away.
On exiting the development, you can either take a bus (every 2 mins) over Hammersmith Bridge, from where you have access to 3 different underground (Tube) lines - the District, Piccadilly and Hammersmith & City underground - as well as buses, which go all over London.
The house is located about 25 minutes from Heathrow by taxi (we can organise transportation to and from the airport if required). Or if you're travelling with your own car, there is 1 available car parking space in front of the house.
We always show consideration for our guests and ask for mutual consideration to keep the house clean and tidy:
- No pets in the house

- Please warn about guests not on booking
- No events in the house prior to agreement with us, please.
