5 London homes perfect for a wonderful workcation
Like working from home, but better!
The thing about ‘working from home’ is that it doesn’t necessarily have to be your home… Enter the golden age of ‘workcations’. Digital nomadism is enabling us to switch up our scenery, without any disruption to our work schedule. Nowadays, we can relocate to a new destination for a few months with complete ease. Living like a local, taking the time to explore properly, while still being able to work and keep our businesses running.
Speaking of which, if you’re planning an extended work trip to London, then we know just the spot. From window-side desk spots to sun-kissed courtyard gardens, these are the homes where you’ll look forward to getting up and going ‘into the office’. What’s more, with all the services on offer at onefinestay you won’t have to worry about a thing during your stay. We can take care of all the little details, from weekly housekeeping and grocery shopping to arranging childcare and a private chef, leaving you the time and space you need to focus. We even check whether there are building works in the nearby area before your stay, so there’s no risk of unexpected noise while you work.
A design lover’s dream, the sophisticated antique furnishings and beautiful artwork of Porchester Terrace are sure to fire your imagination and get the creative juices flowing. Pull up a chair next to the sun-flooded window desk, looking out onto the elegant terrace street below. When you’re in need of a break, the peaceful bounds of Kensington Gardens are just a short stroll away.
Boasting a history to rival that of the British Museum and oodles of character, the wood-panelled walls, soaring beams and stone fireplaces of Cockspur Street provide a peaceful sanctum for an extended work trip. Step outside and you’ll be surprised to find yourself just two minutes’ walk away from the hustle and bustle of Trafalgar Square - an atmosphere that feels worlds’ away from the calm of this heavenly home.
Enjoy a complete sense of peace and calm at Ormond Yard, a gorgeous four-bedroom home tucked away in the heart of Mayfair. Soft, subtle tones and stylish design features adorn the spacious, light-filled rooms, creating a beautiful backdrop for a day spent in ‘the office’. There’s a lovely antique desk situated in the serene living room - ideal for setting up your workstation. As well as an inviting armchair right next to it - just the ticket for a relaxing coffee break.
St Luke’s Street V
Sleek, open-plan interiors punctuated by cheery splashes of colour - St Luke’s Street V is certainly a glorious hideaway in the heart of charming Chelsea. Relax with a morning coffee in the sun-kissed courtyard garden, before knuckling down at the window-front desk. After a productive day, treat yourself to a delicious dinner and perhaps a cocktail or two in one of the nearby elegant eateries.
Cadogan Place IV
An elegant two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, Cadogan Place IV is guaranteed to charm. Brimming with magnificent artwork, antiques and collector’s items, you’ll be able to draw plenty of inspiration from your surroundings as you work. The windowfront desk in the sitting room is the perfect spot sitting down and blasting through your to-do list. Or, if the weather is fair, set up your laptop on the balcony and enjoy the sights and sounds of the bustling street below while you work.
