About our home

Our house sits quietly in a group of 1930s cottage-style homes. The corner entrance conceals the size and style of the space within - particularly the excellent garden which has lots of room for outdoor dining and playing. We refurbished completely when we moved in 6 years ago, adding a glass extension into the garden which brings in loads of light, and completely redid the kitchen about 2 years ago. There are 3 bedrooms, though one is very much child-focused while the other can be converted to contain a double bed on demand (currently has two cribs). The neighbourhood is quiet where we live but very close to great river-front cafes and restaurants, to Borough Market and Bermondsey Street to the West and the excellent and extensive Southwark Park to the West. We are at Bond Street in 20 minutes by tube.
