A quick study
Shielded from the road by a screen of lush foliage, North Gower Street has mastered sophisticated design. Muted earth tones are matched with patterned textiles – rugs and throw pillows – and the walls are decorated with quirky mounted skulls and framed anatomy sketches. And where better for some headspace, than the vine-canopied back patio? As close as it is to the city, you'll quickly find it's as quiet as a library up in these hills.
Your hosts are high performers, in both their sense of style and their careers as a PR executive and a television producer. They both travel often for work, and try to meet up while on the road.
There's so much to learn about this delightful home. Each nook is filled with artwork and mesmerising artefacts, and hours can be spent studying the original architectural details, like the ornate crown moulding and crests above the doors. An antique filing cabinet holds curios, and vintage brass lamps through the home provide numerous reading spots. Take your dinner under the twinkling strings of lights on the back patio, where you'll find a little serving bar set up for drinks. The last night here will be a most unwelcome conclusion.
There is a sofa bed in the den that can be made up upon request, allowing this home to accommodate up to four.
While babies and children are welcome in this home, no toddlers, please.
North Gower Street has a driveway that can accommodate up to three cars, stacked. There is also unrestricted parking on a street nearby.
Given its location in the hills, North Gower has a set of stairs that lead to the front door.
This home doesn't have air-conditioning, so ask us if you'd like to have fans for your stay.
