At Walham Grove you’ll find East really does meet West. English country elegance is discernible in the kitchen, from the gleaming fine china to the sturdy farmhouse table, while the delicate brushstrokes of Japanese paintings, smiling buddhas and decorative floral vases add an oriental flavour. Your location’s just as diverse, with both the multi-cultural exhibits of the National History Museum and the extravagant boutiques of Kensington nearby. But you may just find that it’s the whispering greenery of the spacious garden that brings you inner peace.
Your hosts are a cosmopolitan couple with two teenage children. Intertwining French, English and New Zealand roots, not to mention several years immersed in Tokyo’s neon sprawl, has heavily influenced their home’s leanings.
Take a turn around each of the four distinctive bedrooms – will you opt for the master’s Tokyo grey, or the elegant double with its wrought iron bed and curved jade sofa?
The sitting room’s dark wood floors are the yin to the creamy rug and delicate sofa’s yang, and you’ll surely be grateful for the bright fuchsia cloakroom after a day spent touring Fulham’s many delights. But don’t linger on those leafy streets too long, the airy TV snug with its gentle artwork is just as deserving of your time.
This home is spread over four floors so there are lots of stairs from top to bottom.
One loveable cat and two dogs live at this home. They won't be around during your stay, but this home may not be suitable for people with allergies.
Your host's housekeeper, Amy, is part of the package and will be in the residence during guest stays. Although she will share the use of the front door with you, she has her own bedroom, ensuite and kitchenette.
This home doesn't have air conditioning. Between June and September, we'll place fans in each bedroom. Please let us know if you'd like fans outside the summer period.
The fireplace in the second sitting room is ornamental.
