Oakley Street II is a home for both the heart and the head. Your practical side will be wooed by the high-ceilinged rooms with their lavish contemporary décor and lovely original features. And your artistic spirit will be wowed by the sumptuous floral wallpaper and curious furniture finished in velvet, carved wood and mother-of-pearl. Throw in a tangled garden glimmering with fairy lights and you’ve a combination that’s utterly irresistible. The river is at the end of the street, and so too is King’s Road, with its dazzling designer stores and artisan grocers.
If you’re happy and you know it
Your hosts once made their living buying and selling property, but Oakley Street II was just so wonderful that they found they couldn’t leave! Six years on, they reside here with their gorgeous little dog Poco, and love taking him for walks in Battersea Park, just across the river.
What a feeling
The sitting room is down on the ground floor, and you’ll be delightfully cosy on the cream corner sofa, sitting snugly atop an intricate Turkish rug. Up one level, and you’ll find the open plan kitchen-diner, where you can recline upon a devore daybed and gaze out into the garden. Sally forth for dinner al fresco, or sip your wine indoors beneath the grey gelding’s benevolent gaze. . Both bedrooms are doubles, and both showcase some exquisite wallpaper. The guest double has direct access to the garden and its own ensuite, while the master bedroom next door also has an ensuite, and a kingsized bed – encased in our crisp, luxurious linen.
Another perfect day
Chelsea is one of the very nicest parts of the city, with tranquil streets and mature trees – all surprisingly near many of the top tourist destinations. South Kensington and the museums are within easy reach, and closer still is King’s Road, where you’ll find everything from cashmere to salted caramels. There are restaurants and bars aplenty, or, if you want to head into town, the tube from Sloane Square to Piccadilly Circus takes around fifteen minutes.
