If your body is a temple then this is the home for you. Spacious, bright and exceedingly pleasant, you can work up a sweat in the dedicated fitness room, and then relax, happy in the knowledge that you’ve earned the right to eat, drink and snuggle upon the enormous corner sofa without even a trace of guilt. Just a couple of minutes from King’s Road, this home is down a quiet street so pretty that you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into a painting. Exercise your credit card in Chelsea’s stunning boutiques, optimise your nutritional intake in some of the capital’s best restaurants, and then return home – lie back, stretch, and repeat until bedtime.
Your hostess is a fitness instructor, and it is she who is responsible for the high quality equipment you’ll find in Godfrey Street. Both she and her husband are incredibly active, with a particular passion for skiing.
Body and soul
Your hosts and their family have occupied Godfrey Street for over twenty years, and there’s a real and deep sense of homeliness to the sunny open plan living space, with its pale wooden floor and dining table seating six. Flick on the TV, with Apple TV and cable, or head next door to the stylish kitchen, where you’ve granite worktops and everything you need to create a healthy (or not so healthy) feast. The fitness room has the kit to keep you looking, and feeling, your very best, and then, you can soothe away any aches and pains in one of the two bathrooms. The family bathroom has a large tub, while the ensuite offers a powerful walk-in shower. The master bedroom itself is warm and peaceful, and up the stairs there’s a lovely terrace with views out across the rooftops.
Joggers will want to explore Ranelagh Gardens, the venue for the Chelsea Flower Show, and if you like to run beside water, you’re close to the river and Chelsea Embankment. Catch your breath in King’s Road’s gorgeous cafes and then test your stamina in an incredible array of designer boutiques. The tube from Sloane Square to Oxford Circus takes around ten minutes.
