United we stand What is the one thing better than a beautiful house? Why, two beautiful houses, of course, and here they are together. Hurlingham Road is twice your average townhouse – and many more times as magnificent. Double fronted, double staircased and even double dining tabled, the only difficulty here might be keeping count. On the walls gleam almost too many fine paintings to mention, while the conservatory, patio and colourful kitchen are all quite perfect for parties. And you needn’t worry about London feeling teensy by comparison. Hurlingham Park is just next door, and you’ve the glories of Fulham and Chelsea lurking up the road… Better half The artwork in this home tells the tale of a cosmopolitan, classy family.

Toys animate both bunk-bedded kids’ rooms, one girlish, one boyish, then there are two singles, and the eloquent, gorgeous appeal of the master bedroom and ensuite. Add to that two dressing rooms and three more luscious bathrooms, and we think you’ll sleep well after exploring this abode. On the double Let the little ones romp around Hurlingham Park, or wander down to the water’s edge and watch the rowers huff back and forth beneath Putney Bridge. Fulham is famed for its fashion labels and villagey feel, while Chelsea is abuzz with bars, snazzy boutiques and lip-smacking restaurants. Should you like your lights to be still bigger and brighter, then there’s always the glitter of the West End. The tube from Parsons Green will have you in Oxford Circus in a short half hour.
