Can a drag be more delightful than this? Graced with art galleries, master tailors and a smattering of bridal boutiques, Chiltern Street is entirely charming. You’ll even chance upon the oldest candlestick maker in the world. Here, brows are reassuringly high, and you only need glance up a little further to find Wendover Court. Housed in the handsomest of Victorian mansion blocks, this apartment is admirable as well. Both quaint and cushy, the furniture is antique mahogany, while light glows from its rich Persian rugs. On this most English of streets, it’s a sweetly English home. Best of all, you’re right in the heart of its capital…
Showing the way
A civil servant, your hostess was once an election observer in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Central America. She and her young son have only recently moved back to London.
We quite understand if you’re somewhat distracted on the way to your front door. Once inside, let those shopping bags drop to the sitting room floor and nestle deeply into its rich red sofa. The walls are bright white, the furniture a polished mahogany, and you’ll spot the distinctive red brick of the mansion block gleaming across the way. You’ve a sound system as well as a sleek TV, while the elegant dining table seats four. Ready some sophisticated cuisine in the well-stocked kitchen before it’s time to browse the bedrooms.
Bright windows and shelves a-groan with ornaments await in the soothing master bedroom, and you’ve a modern bathroom that’s brimming with our White Company goodies. The double bedroom is arrayed with more lovely antiques, from a handsome chest of drawers to the cute desk, while the shower room is spruce and shiny.
If it’s rare or renowned, you’ll surely find it in Chiltern Street, purveyor of fine wedding cake, wine racks and woodwind instruments – to name but a few. For everything else there’s Oxford Street, which you’ll find just a stroll away. When you’re shopped out, call in on the Wallace Collection for some fine art, the Sherlock Holmes Museum for some sleuthing or Regent’s Park for that scenic picnic. Being in the heart of zone one, you won’t be short on things to do.
