Large book and plant-filled townhouse in central London. The characterful 3 double bed home is 20 seconds from Oval Tube station (Northern Line), with fast access to Heathrow and Gatwick, and a quick walk to the South Bank, Westminster and Soho.
Large 3 bed duplex in a colourful central London house from c.1880 - the building has all original features including wooden floors, fireplaces, stained glass sash windows and a planted roof terrace perfect for sunning and meteor shower gazing.
The huge separate kitchen and sitting rooms on the first floor are great social areas with excellent light all day round. The sitting room is filled with art and hundreds of books about art, design, photography, travel and architecture; the big comfy sofas have rugs and throws for cosying up, and there is a large Bose sound system.
The kitchen is equipped with farmhouse table, dinner service for 12 and has a washing machine, hanging clothes dryer, dishwasher, gas cooker and oven.
The large planted roof terrace has an olive tree, vines and pots filled with plants and herbs. There is also a dining table and chairs for outside meals and socialising.
Bedrooms on the second floor are simple and homely, with family-made wall hangings, lots of plants and mid-century furniture. Beds are large and cosy and there are two bathrooms - one with full tub, one with shower.

We're very flexible - will be available to greet guests and show you around the home and the neighbourhood; also happy to let you explore as you please :)
There is an occasional house cat called Harvey Milk, though he probably won't be around during your stay. Klaudia, our cleaner, will come in for a couple of hours each week.
This is my primary residence so I ask guests to treat the space as they would their own homes.
No smoking inside the house, but totally fine on the roof terrace using ashtrays.
Check in is very flexible but check out must be no later than 2PM on the last day
I hope you enjoy the house as much as I do!

I'm a Creative Director based in San Francisco, California, but am on road quite a lot in the US and Europe.
I'm a mutt, originally hailing from South London (Camberwell) but spending my childhood moving between Northern Italy and Wales; I completed my studies in the UK and Argentina.
I currently work for The California Sunday Magazine and Pop-Up Magazine as their creative lead for film, radio and animation. I also write for international publications, mostly about ecology, food and sustainability.
