Peruse our list of lovingly chosen luxurious homes to ensure that London is a lover you won’t fast forget.
Stairway to Heaven - A Soho Home for Couples
Hip, fresh and modern, the Stairway to Heaven apartment is a Scandinavian dream for the coolest of couples. Minimalist in design, this stylish one bedroom penthouse home is light and bright thanks to two skylights in the main living area. With clean lines, lots of wood and textured furnishings, this open plan apartment feels absolutely swimming in space.
Bathed in sunlight, the understated bedroom is the perfect place to wake up with your loved one. Get out your phones people, because this place is an Instagram dream.
Piccadilly Dream - Luxurious in its simplicity
Speaking of dreams, slightly larger parties will fall in love with the divine four bedroom Piccadilly Dream apartment. Clean, classic and elegant, the décor is reminiscent of a penthouse suite on New York’s opulent Upper East Side. Beautiful and airy, the spacious home is sumptuously furnished in soft creams and greys, complete with metal accents that dreamily evoke Tiffany’s silverware collections.
Both of the bedrooms are large, luxurious and beautiful in their simplicity. And, to top it all off, outside there’s a delightful decking area perfect for socialising on summer evenings with a glass of bubbly.
Shopper’s Paradise - Lights and Artwork
Love shopping? Then you’ll definitely love staying in Shopper’s Paradise. Fun, funky and fresh, the apartment, which sleeps six, is teeming with unique and futuristic flourishes – from its numerous eye-catching light fixtures, to the kitsch and colourful artwork throughout the home.
Relaxing couldn’t be easier with the apartment boasting both a bathtub and reading snug, both of which ideal for unwinding after a long day spent strutting down Oxford Street. And what’s more, with a six person dining table, there’s plenty of room to entertain and flaunt your most fabulous purchases.
Rupert’s Love Nest - A Cosy Haven
For those of you wanting a romantic get-away, why not shack up in the aptly named Rupert’s Love Nest ? This one bedroom apartment is a cosy haven of peace and tranquillity right in the thick of bright and bustling Soho.
The bedroom, with its relaxing blue accents, is the perfect place to cuddle up after a long day in the city, while the sleek and simple kitchen diner is ideal for enjoying a romantic breakfast. Only a short stroll from the shops of Carnaby Street, you can even pick up a few thoughtful gifts for your loved one.
The Spinning Top - Moody and Masculine Soho Home
For something more sultry, The Spinning Top apartment might just be for you. This two bedroom apartment is moody and masculine with its chocolate walls and metallic furnishings.
The space has an industrial feel thanks to the exposed brickwork, chrome covered kitchen and edgy light fixtures. Sleek and brooding, the living room features some eye-catching artwork, and the apartment’s namesake, designer Thomas Heatherwick’s “spinning top”.
And for downright massive parties, we’ve got you covered with the Piccadilly Baths, which sleeps a whopping 22 people. Live the life of luxury in a house absolutely overflowing with amenities, from old arcade game consoles, to the poker room, to the hot tub on the roof terrace (yes, we said hot tub and roof terrace).
But if that’s not your thing, why not unwind indoors and watch a movie in amongst the steamy bubbles of your very own Jacuzzi? While this audacious home may not be to everyone’s tastes – it’s more flashy than quintessentially British, and has four floors with no lift access– it is guaranteed to be a whole lot of fun!
