The perfect blend
With its especially friendly neighbours and a picturesque prospect, Modbury Gardens is in one of London’s best connected residential areas. You can step outside the Victorian door of this two bedroom, two bathroom beauty and sidle over to Belsize Park where eateries abound, or mosey down to the millionaire’s mansions of Primrose Hill. If you’re feeling energetic, hop on a Boris bike and enjoy the unbeatable cycle down to the postcard perfect Little Venice, and when your day is done, retire to your Chalk Farm nest to melt away with a good read in the master bedroom’s roll-top bath.
Your host is a web consultant who’s helped many a digital start-up flourish. She divides her time between her London pied-a-terre and her family home in Somerset. When she’s not enjoying the cultural delights that North London has to offer, she’s indulging her twin passions of gardening and reading.
Where the heart is
Step into the spacious sitting room and admire the wooden floor and antique furniture, which glint under the spot-lit ceiling. While you soak up the earth tones and worldly décor, take a book from the breath-taking collection which lines the shelves, and curl up on the deep, taupe sofa, or sit at the desk in the light of French doors which open onto the decked roof terrace. Downstairs, rustle something up in the chrome kitchen, complete with modern appliances, and enjoy a tasty treat in the adjoining dining room. The downstairs shower room, meanwhile, shimmers with mosaic walls and a spa-like ambience.
Once refreshed, skip upstairs to the enormous master suite, which is light and sophisticated in neutral tones, and effortlessly breezy with two large skylights. A king-sized bed and free-standing, roll-top bath add a touch of decadence, so get your fluffy robe on and get reclining. There’s also an adjacent sea-blue shower room where further indulgence is called for.
With its rows upon rows and period properties, peppered with quaint eateries and boutiques, Chalk Farm has a community spirit, as well as an enviable proximity to Central London. Enjoy the array of green spaces, from Hampstead Heath to Regents Park, which are both within walking distance, or sidle down to the alternative shopping mecca of Camden. Get to Oxford Street in just ten minutes via the nearby tube stop.
This is a well loved home which shows some signs of wear and tear.
There is a microwave in this home, only the 1 minute button and the start button work.
There is currently no hanging space in the master bedroom, so a hanging rail will be provided for your stay.
If there are more than two in your party and two people do not want to share a bed, please do let us know as we have to ask your host's permission to use the sofa bed in the sitting room.
