A home that has mastered all trades, Oxford Street waits around one corner, Selfridges around another, and some of London’s best restaurants are downstairs. But James Street II is no less interesting on its inside. Look past the white walls, clean lines and funky furniture, and you’ll spy a kaleidoscope of charm. Bright throws meet multi-coloured stags’ heads, while the twin bedroom is all the more refined for its headboards of plaid. And browse as you might the department stores nearby, you’ll struggle to find tech of a higher specification.
Your hosts are a South African pair with a penchant for quirky art. And you can be sure they take every advantage of the shops and restaurants lurking on their doorstep.
Watch the crowds mill this way and that, or head up to this home for an even better view. Jazzy prints and designer coffee tables vie for your glances, while clusters of art dot the gallery-white walls.
And at the sight of the bright, open-plan kitchen, you may wish to call off your dinner plans and stay in. Choose the arty minimalism of the master bedroom, or plump for the traditionally British twin. If the former is a cluster of clean lines and faunal fittings, the latter is all swathes of plaid and monochrome prints.
This home has a Smart TV, so while it shows on-demand services it does not show live terrestrial channels.
This home's central location means you will be able to hear a certain level of noise from inside the home.
