About our home

The House They Left Behind - so named because the rest of the street was levelled after WWII - was a historic London pub until last year when we remodelled it. Its a classic Georgian (1820s) town house in the heart of the city. We border a pretty park with plenty of kids play areas and free tennis courts. We are also steps from the River Thames with plenty of riverside walks and restaurants within five minutes.

Further details:
Our house is on three floors - we have a smart reception hall with fireplace, chandelier and antiques, which opens into a huge kitchen / dining / living area. The table can seat up to 12 and the living area has an enormous sofa and a 42" LCD TV. The living area opens onto a walled garden, with a dining table for 10, BBQ and space to relax - this is a rare addition for central London.

Upstairs we have three double bedrooms - the master bed has a 6.5 ft bed - and one single bedroom with a cot. We use Bed 4 as an upstairs living room / office / guest room - it has a sofa bed, twin beds, TV & a desk - with some river views.

All the bedrooms look over the park and the front rooms look over the historic Narrow Street conservation area - see the pics.

Since taking these pics we have had a baby - some of the curtains and decor in two of the bedrooms are more child friendly now and we have plenty of baby and toddlers toys & kit that can be made available (or stowed away in the cellar).
