About the property

Come Home to London with a stay in an atypical terraced family house.

After your journey, come home to a voyage through the historical British domestic interior designs. This 3-bedroom house has been lovingly renovated and restored by an experienced interior designer. However, importantly maintaining vital aspects of the great periods of British interior influences – from Victoriana, Queen Anne, Georgian and Scandinavian. Each room tells a tale of domestic bliss, and the building of a home reflective of these great design periods.

The canvas is white, the designer’s trademark White cube style, but the rich soft textures, sleek space management and expert decoration makes this more than a rental but your home away from home.

An atypical London mid terrace house, boasting all modern conveniences and walking distance from a parade of local shops and amenities, including a children’s playground, ornamental gardens, tennis and basketball courts. Plaistow Underground Tube station is a short stroll away, as is Stratford Town Centre. Alternatively, a choice of three bus services whisk you to these transport hubs for either the Westfield and Stratford Shopping Malls, the largest in Europe, the Queen Elisabeth II Olympic Park or either Tube station – Plaistow (District and Hammersmith & City lines) or Stratford (Central, Jubilee, DLR, Overground lines and express services to London St Pancreas for the Gatwick Airport connection and Eurostar train). To transport you to and from the airports, Central London for direct connection to all the major tourist attractions including the Palaces of Westminster, St James and Buckingham Palaces, Tower of London, Madam Tussauds Wax Works Museum, Victoria & Albert and Natural History museums, Kew Gardens and Oxford Circus, to name just a few!

This rental is nestled on a tree-lined street in a quiet family oriented neighbourhood. Friendly neighbours are always on hand for a cheery hello and your hosts lives only moments away.

Three spacious Bedrooms, each with new deep double beds, feather down pillows and duvets. Separate Shower and Toilet, and fully stocked Kitchen with washing machine, cooker oven, microwave, fridge freezer and all the crockery and cutlery you’ll need. Everything is catered for and, if we’ve missed anything, just ask! Open plan Dining and Living Rooms that can be screened off to make use of the double Sofabed in the Living Room. This takes the sleeping capacity of the rental to 8 persons, ideal for a family or group of friends. The safe and secure Back Garden makes this accommodation ideal for children or al fresco breakfast or lunch.

The pictures are only a glimpse at this unique and inspiring space; the experience will be everything. A space you’ll be happy to return to after a long day sightseeing; or indeed for your next visit to the city as your very own London home.

About Dustin

Professional. Company director at an interior design practice and an amateur designer too! Love to travel and host. In depth knowledge of the city offering both 5 star accommodation and service. Personalised, friendly and a guaranteed warm welcome to the home of the 2013 Olympics and Europe's largest and most vibrant city.

Dustin purchased this house in 2016

Why Dustin chose London

As a designer, I believe inspiration comes from the space itself; a room speaks to you, if you care to listen. Meath Road speaks of old friends, close comforting neighbours, a sense still of community In the morning the salaryman is off to work, the school children not far behind. A mother calls for her infants to hurry along, off on a quick visit to the local shops, sunshine beams through the picture windows. Afternoons are spent in the quiet back garden, sipping a cool drink or warm cup of tea, dozing in complete privacy, a world within a world. The house is a different creature as evening draws in, the Boysenberry tree casting long shadows into the bedrooms, as if to welcome you home and to a peaceful night amidst the bustling city.

What makes this house unique

Easy access to the airports, numerous cultural hubs, the City and Docklands. A mere 10 minute bus ride to the Stratford hub for travel to the coast, shopping, sightseeing, watching the football or just sightseeing. An exhaustive range of restaurants, bars, pubs, museums and galleries, sports and almost all leisure activities at your disposal.

The house is spacious and designed with you in mind; every detail is catered for and we're on stand-by to provide anything we may have missed! Newly renovated, its ideal for one to eight guests.

On street parking via Parking Permits at £5 per day, Monday to Friday only.

We had a great stay in the house which is comfortably furnished with three ample double bedrooms. Dustin, the host, was very accomodating and was helpful and informative every step of the way. Easy check in and check out and cosy central heating. I would highly recommend this property.

Great apartment near London ExCel

  • 5 of 5

We spent five days here while attending an event at London ExCel and the apartment was exactly what we were looking for. Comfortable beds, clean living space, and a some nice perks including bottles of wine and other amenities. Dustin was really helpful with everything, accommodating requests and pointing out interesting restaurants in the area. We especially appreciated the quality high-speed wifi with no connectivity issues, as this is sometimes a problem while traveling.

Es war eine tolle Zeit für die ganze Familie!

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist mit ihren drei Schlafzimmern perfekt für den Urlaub mit sechs Personen. Küche und Badezimmer sind zweckmäßig und ausreichend ausgestattet und Dustin hat uns mit Mandarinen und Bonbons überrascht und erfreut. Die Lage in einer typischen Reihenhaussiedlung und die gute Anbindung an die U-Bahn fanden wir ebenfalls prima.

Gerne wieder!

Car: not necessary

East London is the cultural heartland of London, with a wonderful heritage comprised of a mix of all the city's migrant communities. The borough is proudly the most mixed and diverse in the city and is experiencing a resurgence after hosting the London 2012 Olympics. From the Stratford Westfield Mall and Olympic Park, to Epping Forest, the sleek Docklands and its financial district to the thriving art quarters of Hoxton and Spitalfields, there's something here for everyone!
