Long Lane II is a home whose warehouse origins are still proudly in evidence. The Thames flows past so close that you can hear the gulls, and a stroll to Tower Bridge will evoke the days when ships would unload, filling this home with their cargos of silk and spices. Its contents these days are just as precious – reclaimed furniture, original art, hand-painted crockery and antique rugs. Borough Market has made this one of the most fashionable parts of town, its cobbled streets nowadays home to independent cafés and restaurants, and the City’s gleaming towers are just across the water.
Treading the boards
Your host is an actor whose work often sends him to the USA. He moved into Long Lane II three years ago, and wasted no time in making it his own. He spends his spare time scouring London for vintage fittings and fixtures, and has a particular penchant for lighting created from industrial equipment.
Then and now
This home’s enormous arched windows will leave you speechless, especially in the mornings when sunshine floods the open plan living space. And the interiors are no less stunning: a carefully-curated selection of snug couches and mismatched chairs in leather, linen and battered metal.
Art is everywhere, and so too are bewitchingly fabulous touches like the stacked suitcases atop the oak wardrobe, a weathered backgammon board and the butchers tiles adorning both the kitchen and the two modern bathrooms. The double bedrooms are stylish and smart, with courtyard views, and more of your host’s innovative illuminations.
There is a secure parking space available at this home. If you require it during your stay, please let our reservations team know so they can make arrangements with the host.
