Like nearby Oxford Street and Regent’s Park, this home keeps you looking. To the right of the entrance hall the long, open-plan living area is a sleek space, 16 windows lighting the kitchen and dining table for six to the right-hand side. A sheepskin rug separates a sofa and two armchairs, and the artwork is worth a glance – especially the colourful pistachio shells.
The first left from the hallway takes you into a wood-panelled bathroom, and next along is the second bedroom (with a bunk and trundle bed, it sleeps up to four). The master bedroom is straight ahead, with eclectic artwork and another wall of windows. For a different way of seeing London, your hosts like to hop on a Boris Bike – there’s a docking station round the corner.
