Unique Properties to Rent in London
Looking for a characterful holiday home in London? Plum Guide has you covered
There is, admmittedly, no shortage of great places to stay in London. The seemingly never-sending search, however, can often end in an exasperated "I can’t be bothered anymore, they all look similar, let’s just book anywhere" moment – not exactly a recipe for a trip to write home about. To save you from this fate, we’ve selected a few of our favourite Plum-approved unique properties to rent in London, so that your trip is memorable for all the right reasons.
Swing: Laid-back chic in Shoreditch
Well, where to begin… With a Bose sound-system and DVD library, this is a laid-back home that fits seamlessly into East London's Shoreditch vibe. It’s a quirky place exuding rustic chic, and it's great value for money. If you’ve ever wanted to live as an artist might, in a vibrant city-centre location, this option on our list of unique properties to rent in London certainly fits the bill. What's more, hanging from the open wooden beams you’ll find your very own indoor hammock - where better to relax with a good book?
The Modern Mews: A sense of (stylish) space in Fitzrovia
Nestled in the charming Fitzrovia neighbourhood with Oxford Circus a mere 7 minutes away, this unique London home is hard to beat when it comes to location. You’d usually expect homes for rent in such a London hotspot to be a bit on the, shall we say, compact' side, but this p(a)lace is pretty darn spacious, and not to mention chic: think exposed brickwork, beams and a modern industrial feel. With two generous bedrooms, a TV for some lazy morning viewing and a small (but perfectly formed) terrace to pop out onto for breakfast… if the London weather is cooperating, that is.
Prince Luxe: A pop of colour in picturesque Chelsea
It’s a luxury apartment in Chelsea, but not quite as you know it. This classic London townhouse is set on a colourful street (think the vibrant houses of Portobello Road) that’d be a crime not to photograph. In contrast to the lively colour scheme outside, this home's interior sees pristine white and greys create a zen-like atmosphere – just what you want after an afternoon in the hustle and bustle of nearby King’s Road and Sloane Square. Come evening, slide into the ever-so inviting bathtub, light a fire and enjoy some social time in the living area.
