Small but perfectly formed, Bazelgette Walk is a studio flat in a renovated old Victorian pumping station, in leafy Chiswick. Just a hair’s breadth from the Thames, wander down to watch the boats gliding by, and you may even catch a race if you’re lucky. And though nearby historical curiosities and wide green spaces abound, it’s also just a short train ride from central London. After a wholesome wander, return to your new neck of the West London woods, and soak up the atmosphere of this cheerfully unique home.
Down to earth
Your host is a set designer from Brighton, whose Chiswick pied-a-terre is rife with hints at his creative profession, from the sleek furniture to the atmospheric lighting. He enjoys walking his dog along the nearby Thames, and cruising his Mini Cooper between Bazelgette Walk and his main home on the coast.
Step into this one room beauty and be beguiled by the laid back luxury of the space. Rustle up a tasty treat in the kitchen end of the living area, where spotlights jump over the black marble surfaces. Take the fruits of your culinary labour over to the conceptual, round dining table, or curl up on the sofa and flick on the flat screen TV. A beautiful leather recliner and nature-inspired rug lend a real richness.
Head to the bathroom, with its luxe black tiles and mirror wall, and take a dip or a power shower while a fluffy towel heats on the rack. In the bedroom area, there’s a king sized bed with our crisp White Company linen, and some chic minimalist décor, broken up, here and there, by brightly coloured tapestry cushions and wicker stools. Though if you’re not quite ready for slumber, slide out to the terrace for a nightcap around the garden dining table.
Famous for its quaint old buildings and riverside industry, Chiswick stands as a monument to old London. Wander the boutique-lined streets or take the picturesque stroll down the Thames to Hammersmith. If you’re hankering for a spot of culture, mosey down to William Hogarth’s 18th century mansion, or visit the historic Fosters bookshop. The nearest underground station is just ten minutes’ walk away.
