Description

White City House Rental Photos and Description

Village-like, vibrant area. Only 20 minutes from Piccadilly Circus. Great transport links. Fantastic location. Personal and Local Service. Family friendly.10 mins to Portobello Market

This house is on a quiet street in the heart of Brackenbury Village. The street is lined with colourful Victorian cottages with pretty gardens. It is like stepping back in time, little has changed for over 100 years since they were built.

However, you walk in the little gate to the front garden and step inside this cottage and suddenly you are brought into a white modern open plan space which flows freely from the sitting room to the kitchen, and from the dining area to the deck looking out onto a garden full of greenery and mature trees.

There are interesting books and paintings to capture your interest as you walk upstairs to the well proportioned luxurious bath and wet room. Up a few more steps and you reach the light and airy master bedroom with super king size bed and a second bedroom with king size bed next door.

At the end of the street, there is the Brackenbury deli where you can pick up home made meals, cheeses, breads and cakes, or stay for a coffee and breakfast. Opposite is Stentons butchers which has been there for years and sells fresh free range eggs and great cuts of meat. Your friendly local pub also at the end of the street serves English and other beers as well as good food.

Why Elizabeth Lytton chose London

Brackenbury village is a quiet residential area with a great community feel, and at the same time a wonderful base from which to visit all London’s sights. A neighbourhood with some of the best schools in London, you can enjoy a quiet and family oriented atmosphere. Both Disney and Coca Cola have their UK headquarters nearby as this area is both popular and excellently well communicated.

The area is bordered by food markets, great shopping, two fringe theatres – the Lyric and the Bush, as well as music and comedy venues – the Hammersmith Apollo and O2 Shepherd’s Bush.

If you want some peace amid the buzz of London or a place for the children to let off steam take a walk to Ravenscourt Park, or take a Boris bike ride to the river Thames just 10 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

I love the street this cottage is on, and I really like the space and light inside. From the outside it looks like a little Victorian house and inside it is modern, minimalist and open plan. The kitchen/dining/sitting area leading onto the garden is well designed and fully equipped. And I particularly like is the garden - the trees and greenery and privacy. The great thing about this area is that for the price you pay for an apartment two stops away on the tube - you get a house, a garden, and a friendly welcome.

Fantastic house in wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a fantastic stay at this beautiful house. It is exactly as described and even nicer than the photos, in a lovely quiet street with very easy access to central London and fantastic local pubs and restaurants. Elizabeth and her team could not have been more helpful with the services they provided - organizing additional cleaning, early check ins/late check outs, finding us a babysitter and even providing details for a nearby Doctor when our daughter was unwell. We will definitely be hoping to stay in another Elizabeth Lytton house next time we're in London.

The Area

PRETTY RESIDENTIAL AREA MINUTES

FROM CENTRAL LONDON AND RIVER THAMES

Brackenbury village is a quiet residential area with a good community feel, yet carefully selected for its fantastic transport links, beautiful homes and gardens, and for the wide range of shops, delis, restaurants, coffee bars, cinema, theatres, concert and comedy venues all within 5 or 10 minutes walk of the house.

A neighbourhood full of pretty Victorian architecture and gardens with some of the best schools in London, you can enjoy a quiet and family oriented atmosphere. The area is bordered by food markets, great shopping, two fringe theatres – the Lyric and the Bush, as well as music and comedy venues – the Hammersmith Apollo and O2 Shepherd’s Bush.

Only 14 minutes on a double decker bus to High Street Kensington. The area has attracted Disney and Coca Cola to set up their headquarters here. The hugely successful Westfield shopping centre is 15 minutes walk and is full of all the high street shops and top designer boutiques – its all indoors and easy.

If you want some peace amid the buzz of London or a place for the children to let off steam take a walk to Ravenscourt Park, or take a Boris bike ride to the river Thames just 10 minutes away where you can enjoy a friendly drink in one of the many traditional English pubs overlooking the pretty views of the river.

There are two pubs that serve British food and ales. Both are within a couple of minutes walk from the house – The Butcher’s Hook (Cockney rhyming slang for “Look”) and The Anglesea Arms. Two minutes further on you reach Ravenscourt Park with tennis court, children’s playground, tea room, garden centre and pond complete with wild ducks and geese.

The Thatched House pub also in Brackenbury Village is a great watering hole with pretty outdoor terraces. The Brackenbury restaurant and Indian Zing serve delicious meals. All within short walks of each other.

The Elizabeth Lytton team live in this area. They are on hand to give local tips and support throughout your stay.

Transport Links

There is a direct link from Heathrow Airport on the tube, and 5 different tube lines within 5-10 minutes walk of the house that will take you all over London.

The museums and sights of London – Big Ben, Westminster, Buckingham Palace, Natural History museum, Tate galleries etc are all easy and quick to get to from this quiet and safe area. Portobello Market in Notting Hill is just 5 minutes by taxi or 20 minutes on one of London’s Boris Bikes.

Airport Transfers

No matter which airport (Heathrow, Gatwick, City, Luton, or Stansted) you are arriving at, Elizabeth Lytton can arrange airport pick up and drop off. Just send us your flight details and the driver will take you to your destination where you will be personally met for check-in.

Local Shopping

There are many grocery shops within 5 minutes walk of the area. The Brackenbury deli provides a wonderful haven for home cooked treats and delicious coffee. Shepherd’s Bush fruit and vegetable market is 5 minutes walk. A further 5 minutes walk you’ll reach Westfield, one of the largest shopping malls in Europe, with every shop from Prada and Louis Vuitton to Kath Kidson and Desigual, as well as a cinema, restaurants and coffee bars with tastes from all parts of the globe. A very useful place to have on your doorstep.

Places to visit nearby

Apart from all the usual central London places to go you’ll find in your guidebook, there are many beautiful places to visit nearby. Kew Gardens are stunning botanical gardens set in beautiful parkland. Chiswick House a Palladium style home and pretty grounds can be arrived at by bicycle in only 20 minutes or so.

By the River Thames

Take a walk or bicycle ride down to the River Thames just 10 minutes away. Enjoy the Victorian, Regency and Georgian architecture and the wonderful traditional English pubs where you can taste a huge range of English beers.

The Dove – Overlooking the Thames with a rich history and charming interior which houses the smallest bar room in Britain. Former customers include everyone from King Charles II to Ernest Hemingway.

The Old Ship – Just a bit further up the Thames is a fantastic spot for award winning al fresco dining. You can enjoy a traditional Sunday roast lunch or a delicious ale battered fresh haddock overlooking the river.

Local Eating-out

The Andover Arms and Thatched House are some of the area’s hidden gems, these delightful traditional pubs are a great find. Tucked away in Brackenbury Village, both foster a wonderfully relaxing and family friendly atmosphere – with fine ale and home-cooked food served by friendly staff every day.
