The White Town House is officially Britain’s second-finest home. This London town house for twelve was runner-up in TV’s ‘I Own Britain’s Best Home’. The White Town House is a vision of blanched good taste, so Channel 5’s winner must be very special indeed.
It’s hard to top the fabulous master suite with 20-ft bathroom, walk-in shower area and separate dressing room. Or the enormous state-of-the-art kitchen extension with sitting area, complete with five-metre island unit. It’s tough to improve on the 34-ft living room with two fireplaces, or the formal dining room with views over the park.
With lights, firepit and patio heater, the terrace is ripe for socialising whatever the weather. At Christmas, trees, decorations and diamante fairy lights bring extra sparkle. Out and about, Tooting Common’s wildlife, woods and walks, the lights and sights of London and Michelin dining are the cherry on the cake of a stay in one of Britain’s finest homes.
The White Town House has big, open plan living spaces. Ultra-stylish, furnished with a combination of antiques and new finds.
The 34-foot living room has aged oak parquet flooring and not one but two Victorian marble fireplaces. Plus a well stocked library area for relaxing in the evening. There are two expansive windows overlooking Tooting Bec Common and glazed full height French doors leading to the grand hallway.
The enormous modern kitchen extension with sitting area is breathtaking. There’s a five-metre island unit, perfect for catering. Ultra-modern kitchen equipment. And full height picture windows which fold-aside and open out onto the garden, bringing the outside in. The garden is bright and friendly, with a comfortable sitting area for alfresco dining.
The formal dining room enjoys views over the park opposite and has a large dining table which can comfortably seat everyone for an evening meal or family breakfast.
The White Town House sleeps up to twelve guests in six luxurious bedrooms. The high-spot is the ultra stylish master suite with huge bathroom and walk-in shower area, plus a separate dressing room to make yourself fabulous before stepping out to explore the capital.
There are a further four double bedrooms all contemporary in design and lavish in nature.
For the youngsters there’s the perfectly stocked children’s bedroom, with full sized adult beds, teddy bears and lots of toys.
