This home used to be a hotel, and many a story has unfolded within its walls. Gather around the ornate fireplace, atop the Persian rug, to tell your own. And should you lack inspiration, the sitting room is walled with bookshelves, and there’s a piano just opposite. For further cultured pursuits, The Exhibition Centre surprisingly is close by, as are an array of quaint pubs. And when you return home, the golden hues of the floral sofa are sure to enchant.
Between the lines
Your hosts love Philbeach Gardens II for its location, just back from the madding crowd. When not absorbed in one of their many books, they love to sample Earls Court’s artistic side.
All in the telling
The pretty garden stretches from the kitchen’s glass doors, to a decked terrace, to trellises thick with climbing plants. There’s seating space, should sunnier climes tempt you out with a tome, though the free-standing bathtub upstairs might prove just as appealing.
The two nurseries are imaginatively kitted out, with animal mobiles, circus tents and piles of picture books. While the contemporary dining room’s art will satisfy grown-up image-seekers.
This home is spread over four floors with no internal elevator.
The fireplaces in this home are not available for guests to use during their stay.
