Whether you're taking the whole family on a summer getaway or you're planning a trip to the city with friends, these large London homes have plenty of space for everyone. A comfortable and private base for a group getaway, these six exclusive family homes boast light-filled living areas, welcoming kitchens and the rarest of London features: beautiful private gardens to enjoy the balmy summer weather in.

Savour the very best of summer in London

London truly comes alive during the summer months. Enjoy world-class tennis at Wimbledon and hit up Kew the Music in July. Or discover new performance artists at the Camden Fringe festival and take in the vibrant atmosphere at Notting Hill Carnival in August. Meanwhile, September heralds OpenHouse London and The London Design Festival, both dream events for any architect and design lovers in the group.

When not out enjoying the city’s unique events, spend your time picnicking in the city’s gorgeous parks, browsing the latest summer fashion pieces, sipping drinks in flower-filled beer gardens or sampling some of the world’s best cuisine. Summer in London is a glorious affair indeed.

Brondesbury Road

Queen's Park, North London

The perfect base for fans of interior design, Brondesbury Road will catch your attention as soon as you step through the front door. It’s unusual to see a successful and tasteful fusion of ultra-contemporary and vintage Victorian décor in one place. Brondesbury Road, a multi-level, five-bedroom London home, manages to pull that combination off with real flair. Heritage features sit comfortably alongside sleek spotlights, bespoke furniture, and a host of unique embellishments that complement rather than compete with one another.

Brunswick Gardens II

Kensington, Central London

Families and groups of friends alike will adore this vivacious six bedroom, five bathroom home in Kensington. Although in many ways rather grand – you’ll spot original details, antiques and impressive accessories aplenty – Brunswick Gardens II's living areas still have a welcoming, cosy atmosphere, thanks to dashes of colour and printed soft furnishings. You’ll find the surrounding streets just as charming too: dotted with local pubs and eateries and just a stone’s throw away from beautiful Kensington Gardens.

Edis Street III

Primrose Hill, North London

Tucked away in the gorgeous, leafy neighbourhood of Primrose Hill, Edis Street III is the perfect family abode. Entering into the sitting room, white walls set off clean lines and a neutral sofa, and across the pale floorboards, there are twin armchairs, a round coffee table and a wall-lined bookcase. The open-plan kitchen, down the stairs on the left, is equally clutter-free and refined. Six can sit at the contemporary dining table, and out through bi-folding doors, there’s a wraparound bench and flowerbeds, as well as the sweetest little play house, out on the garden’s decking.
