Just steps away from Hyde Park, this home is ideal for a large group looking to explore London’s best attractions. Spend mornings wandering through the leafy park, perhaps with a picnic lunch in tow. With convenient public transit, you can be shopping on Oxford Street in just nine minutes, at the British Museum in seventeen and at Buckingham Palace in just twenty minutes. Of course, a nice stroll cutting through the park will get you to all these places and more in not too much longer. The home itself feels welcoming, with a warm wooden kitchen and plush leather sofas organized around a marble fireplace. There’s a large patio table, ideal for enjoying dinner or gin and tonics on nicer days. Plus, there’s a lot of bedrooms in this home for friends and family – and while common area space may run short, the dining table can squeeze in twelve. With this central of a location though, you’ll likely be out exploring most of the time – why not come home to somewhere bright, private, quietly luxurious and wonderfully comfortable.

Home truths

    Located on a busy square, some traffic noise can be heard in the living areas and the bedrooms on the west side of the home

    The size of the communal living areas are best suited to eight guests, although the dining table seats twelve – if you're in a large group, this is a great central base but not as amenable to hanging all together at home

    The basement could function as an independent unit with its own kitchenette, bathroom and living room – there are two bedrooms on this floor

    This home is spread across three floors, so it may not be suitable for those with limited mobility

    This home has a crib and highchair available

    The single bed in bedroom five is a trundle bed with another single that pulls out for one guest
