Welcome to our mid 1860s family friendly home! It has an unique eclectic style with 3 large bedrooms and a garden making it ideal for families. It's nestled next to a pleasant local park with views across London including the Shard. Ideally located with a 5 minute walk from Kennington Tube and 25 from the London Eye. The slightly fancy world of Kennington and more London world of Walworth Road are right on the doorstep. We hope you enjoy the home as much as we do!
The home's decor is an eclectic international style that ranges from mid-century Danish, through artefacts from Qing China, to 21st century design classics.
We have two children, and the house includes good equipment for a family.
The main living area has a homely feel, with comfy sofas and an Amazon TV stick. The Internet is rock-solid fibre - which you need in London!
The living area follows into the kitchen which is fully equipped with everything you would need from rustling up a quick snack to assembling a three course meal! There is a dishwasher, oven, microwave etc. Tea, coffee, milk and sugar are also provided upon each new guests stay. The kitchen has floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows that lead out onto a leafy. paved garden with furniture for al-fresco eating.
Moving onto the home's three large bedrooms. There are two double rooms -one with a king sized bed - and a twin room. All four beds are fitted with hotel quality linens and each guest is supplied with white fluffy towels.
The bathroom is no exception to the rest of the home's unique style - with a fabulous free standing bath and large shower. Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and soap are also provided.
The home is your own - come and go as you please.

The local area provides ample choice of eateries and drink holes alike.
- Sally Whites on Kennington Road (12 minutes) does wonderful cakes and lunches.
- The Electric Elephant on Crampton Street (10 minutes) is a fantastic local cafe, full of character and charm, serving delicious home-made food to the local artists community in the Pullens yard.
- The Prince of Wales pub on Cleaver Square (10 minutes) will rent you a set of Boules to play in the square. Very popular on a balmy evening, and a nice way to get a feel for the area. Good beer too, in a basic kind of way.
- Louie Louie on the Walworth Road (12 minutes). The trendiest cafe in the area with retro hifi, wonderful levantine inspired food, and the hipster side of Walworth.
- The Beehive Pub (5 minutes) is the nearest local. A little trendier than the Prince of Wales, and the beer isn't as good. Me: fogey.
- Toulouse Loutrec (10 minutes) up Kennington Park Road towards the Elephant and Castle has some very good french food and nice local jazz nights.
- The Dragon Castle (15 minutes) near Elephant and Castle does fantastic authentic Dim Sum - the best south of the river, some say.
For sightseeing options there is:
- The Cinema Museum on 2 Dugard Way which has wonderful live-music accompaniment to classic films.
- We're right near by Kennington Park with a good kids playground and a cafe and a place where lots of very buff men work out.
- The Imperial War Museum is a 20 minute walk or a quick bike ride. It's free, and does all sides of war rather well.
- The Elephant and Castle is being redeveloped with a trendy art-galleries-in-shipping-containers vibe. And a good leisure centre (The Castle) with a swimming pool etc. just 5 minutes away on a bike.
- And the Oval cricket ground is also just 15 minutes walk away.
The northern line is very near by (5 mins, Kennington), and there are extensive buses from Kennington and the Walworth Road.
There is a Santander Cycle Scheme rack, that always has both bikes and spaces, about 40m from the house. If you can cycle, I highly recommend this as the best way to get around.
You can also walk into town on relatively quiet streets. Best route is Braganza --> Cleaver Square --> Black Prince Road --> Lambeth Bridge --> and your at Westminster!
The neighbours next door will be having building works until the end of December. They start no earlier than 8am and stop no later than 4pm, Monday - Friday. Alongside a few roadworks We've adjusted the price of the property to compensate for the inconvenience!
- One of the windows is also stuck just a little open, we are working to get it fixed!
There are pay parking meters near by, just opposite Pasley park as you turn off Braganza street.Get the full listing »
