Description(Reference number: 72596)
Step off the bustling streets south of the river to be met by the scent of fruit trees in the garden of this stunning period townhouse. In the popular neighbourhood of Southwark, it's pretty unusual to have any outdoor space – let alone one as pretty as this. And you just have to step inside the front door to see what this home is all about. Character screams from every nook and cranny of this fascinating place, with period features, standout art on the walls, colourful furnishings and plenty of fun (we see you, retro yellow flooring in the kitchen). There are two living rooms to choose from – the art-covered drawing room for cocktails and long chats, and the TV room with its slate-grey walls and original fireplace. We love the little conservatory overlooking the gardens where you can take your morning coffee, and the bedrooms are all special in their own way. Borough Market is just moments from your door so you can stock up on fresh produce to do that big range cooker justice in the kitchen, and serve it at the kitchen table, in the elegant dining room or outside in the garden. While you're there, check out the view of the city skyline, dominated by the Shard – it’s perhaps the one giveaway from this oasis that you’re still in the big city.
* One of the rooms has bunk beds and is more suited to children
* Keep in mind the home has multiple stories with no lift so it may not suit everyone
