You can stay in this incredible London home – and dine in that kitchen!
As with many grand London homes, the facade of this three-storey townhouse is quite unimposing, in an honest red brick with slick black paintwork. But step inside and you're greeted with proportions that most design enthusiasts can only dream about. This spectacular home can accommodate up to six guests and is currently available to book for short stays through Plum Guide.
This jewel of a home is located in Hackney, east London, which is known as one of the coolest parts in the capital brimming with craft beer spots, markets, independent boutiques and the innumerable bars and restaurants that line its canal. Just around the corner there's the Castle Cinema — an Art Deco building reopened after a local crowdfunding campaign — and Chatsworth Market, which runs every Sunday with a great range of independent stalls.
Local amenities aside, would you ever want to leave a home with triple height ceilings, cascading chandeliers and glistening marble that is flooded with light from crittall doors?
Every room in this home has a sense of old-school opulence, filled to the brim with plush velvets, Art Deco objects and the curved silhouettes of antique sofas and daybeds. Upstairs, an inviting roll-top bath is cocooned by a moody black floral wallpaper, the bedrooms are decadent and give onto spectacular views of the rooftops of east London and the distant skyscrapers in The City. The imposing kitchen is the real heart of the home and one designed for entertaining, either gathered around the XL kitchen island, or sat in the adjacent garden.
This property can be booked through Plum Guide, which is like the Michelin Guide of holiday rentals, full of remarkable homes for the discerning traveller. See more fabulous images below...
