Whether you are sipping afternoon tea in the lounge or watching a movie in the media room, you will feel thoroughly pampered every single day. The master bedroom is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis outside and has a walk-in closet with enough room for Sarah Burton’s latest collection. We defy you not to be wowed by the water feature and potted tree that manage to occupy both levels of the address at once. If you manage to tear yourself away, you can check out the latest exhibitions at the Saatchi Gallery or browse the luxury boutiques in nearby Knightsbridge.

Art-lovers, history-enthusiasts and those with an appetite for the finer things in life – rejoice – this is the South Kensington home you've been waiting for. Under 100 yards from the National History Museum, how's ‘Dippy’ the Diplodocus dinosaur for an interesting "maybe-not-so-friendly" neighbour? Elsewhere, delve into the upscale shopping and high-end dining scene of Harrods, just a fourteen-minute walk from your door. And if you need to stretch your legs to work off lunchtime's over-indulgence, we can think of no better place than the Kensington Palace and Gardens – found thirteen minutes away. When the shopping bags get too heavy, or it's time for a little holiday tipple, return to your new home-from-home. Stepping in to look around the decor – this is where arty types find their element. We love the eclectic artwork, quirky ornaments and industrial-chic styling throughout the home. Sit down for breakfast in the elegant dining area, benefitting from ghost chairs and a modern take on the chandelier. Small but ever-so-sweet, the kitchen is a picture of rustic charm – perfect for plating up home-cooking perfection. As evening draws in, choose from the collection of literature for a spot of bedtime reading before a restful night's sleep, knowing West London's sought-after delights are right on your doorstep.

The owners clearly thought outside the box when it came to decorating, and the result is a real charmer of a London pad. We love the soaring ceilings, eclectic artwork and ornate antique furniture as much as the mod cons. Upon arrival, recharge your batteries with a sip of wine and tasty bites – a welcome gift from your host. Speaking of food, both Fulham Road and Kings Road are less than a five-minute walk away, along with an endless choice of shops, restaurants and pubs. Fulham Broadway station is also a quick stroll for easy access to the rest of central London. However, if you don’t feel like venturing too far out, there’s plenty nearby – a tantalising global menu of food in Earl’s Court, luxury shopping in Chelsea, and museum tours in South Kensington. When you can walk no more, retreat to your cosy digs. Evenings sat by the massive marble fireplace with a crackling flame are an absolute delight – so sit back and sip on some prosecco under the watchful gaze of the carved giraffe and pink flamingo.
