You can even hear Big Ben chime in the garden whilst the house itself shields street noise.
THE AREA: We love the area too - The neighbourhood is one of London's best kept secrets and they regularly shoot films on Georgian square behind us. Too central to be a suburb it is a real authentic old part of central London littered with history, and where so much of it got destroyed in WWII - our house luckily survived. Kennington is in a bubble of land on the south side of the River Thames so in 5-20mins on foot you can get to so many places. We are are just 15 mins walk to Westminster, Tate Britain, and 25 mins walk National Galleries, Covent Garden, South Bank, and Theatreland - plus there's the West End with cafes, bars, clubs and restaurants accessible by foot or taxi. We are even right next to (1min walk) to the Imperial War Museum and park. The bus network virtually goes everywhere form the Imperial war Museum and Lambeth North Tube or Waterloo are the nearest underground stations.

The minute you walk through the door you cannot believe how amazing is this house. Firstly it is huge for central London and has a unique history. It has been transformed by its owners into a warren of vast bedrooms, sitting rooms, top class bathrooms, the best kitchen for design and stocked with everything you need to cook and store food. All this leading to a garden with lawn and mature trees blocking out any neighbours. Quiet at night, comfortable beds. Walk to the south bank, and the river - amazing. food shop next door - and wood fired pizza. Also a huge thank you to Caroline who welcomed us and managed everything so perfectly and professionally and was totally charming and helpful. No hesitation in giving more than 5 stars! Thank you!! ”
We had an amazing stay at this wonderful home. It was clean and beautifully appointed and "huge". The position is excellent with buses right outside and the tube just a 7 minute walk.and even Westminster Bridge a 15 minutes walk. The owner was very helpful as was the house keeper which made this the perfect stay. ”
