It's rare indeed to find a home which is picture perfect, but also provides a large enough canvas to spread out and relax. At Vardens Road, you get the best of both worlds.
This is a four bedroom two bathroom home that puts family first, yet keeps the joy of the funky aesthetic very much to the fore. Set in a serene corner of the city, surrounded by parks, and filled with the most excellent toys, you’ll have no trouble keeping the kids amused. And with top-calibre art on display all around you, there’s no need to head off to Tate Modern to seek entertainment… at least, not for a good... few days…
Our host deals in vintage posters, and he’s shamelessly kept back some of his choicest finds for himself. Evidence of his work is everywhere, making this a home that will particularly appeal to anyone of an artistic bent. His wife has roots in Japan, look out for her influence in the Shoji screens in the sitting room, while their three gorgeous children and little cocker spaniel bounce around Vardens Road, leaving all sorts of sparkling details in their wake.
If you’re the type who’s aware of your surroundings, you’ll be hard-pressed to surround yourself with anywhere more vibrantly good looking than Vardens Road. The vintage posters on every wall fairly throb with life, but they’re just the beginning. The ground floor is all a-jumble with beautifully chosen objects d’art, from pink flamingos to paper screens to the most regal of purple velvet sofas. The top spec kitchen has everything you need to fix yourself the most lavish of meals, eat at the spacious dining table, out in your private garden, or in front of the plasma TV.
Up the stairs you’ll find two jazzy kids’ bedrooms packed with toys, and a sedate double belonging to the more teenaged of the three youngesters. There’s a spacious family bathroom, filled with yummy White Company toiletries. Ascend the stairs once more to find the soothing master bedroom, in a symphony of cream and taupe, with its super-king sized bed and en suite bathroom.
Situated between the green spaces of Clapham Common, Battersea Park and Wandsworth Common, this part of the city is affectionately known as Nappy Valley, for here is where the affluent urbanites settle to raise their Bon Point- clad broods.
You’re just five minutes from Clapham Junction station, from which you can shoot into the centre of the city, or out into the countryside, with ease. But tarry a while, for you’re surrounded by independent boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Be sure to check out Clapham High Street, and, for one of the city’s chicest weekend markets, nearby Northcote Road. And if you do want to get into zone 1, perhaps for the many (free) museums, or a trip to Buckingham Palace, you can be down by the river in well under half an hour.
