About this listing
A large very spacious sunny room in a converted warehouse, very cool hip artists home. Great access to transport links to Gatwick airport and to all of London. Secret garden entrance , roof terrace good restaurants bars and a safe area.
Aritst's home, unique old converted victorian warehouse with an alleyway garden featured in the Nov issue of Gardens Illustrated. Super cool vibe , best location in London for transport, 5 mins walk from Clapham Junction British rail which is on mainline to Gatwick ( a 35 mins journey ). Often used for video and photographic shoots .... its like Harry Potter meets Rumi, east meets west !
Northcote road only 1 min. walk, cafes, bars, shops, a wonderful selection of resurants and world cuisines to be tempted by and a great Saturday market. It is in its own bubble, set off the main road and is a secret gem. It's totally fab as you walk through a tropical garden of Banana plants, palm trees and flowering ginger plants. You might forget where you are in the world!
There is a massive open plan spacious sunny loft room (more like your own flat except there is a shared modern kitchen which you walk through) with a double (futon) bed and open wood fire place with an en-suite bathroom, larger walk in wetroom shower on lower floor (extremely easy access). The double (futon) bed is elevated on a wooden deck giving an extremely heavenly like touch, THIS IS A TOTALY UNIQUE EXPERIENCE. Slightly more elevated above this bed is a smaller single bed so can easily fit 3 people in this space altogether. The room is more like a large flat than a room.
Huge flatscreen HD TV is avaliable with PS3 and many games and large mixed genre DVD/BLU-RAY collection if needed.
My style is very rustic with newly refurbished modern touches, very boho chic with a spiritual slant.
Organic breakfast can happily be provided (if ordered in advance), all vegans, vegetarians and meat lovers are all invited as I am a fantasic cook in all areas!
If weather permits breakfast can be served on a very moroccan style roof deck surrounded by fabulous plants, olive trees swaying grasses and silver willows. We are not overlooked except by British Airways and migrating swallows!
Please stroke the dog ! He is extremely friendly but be careful of the breakfast because he might steal it ! we would prefer you wear slippers in the house.
About the Host, Pandora
Photographer , designer and Yoga teacher.I have a spiritual out look to life , I love beautiful unique and quirky things. I have 3 children, the eldest lives in Brighton, my son is studying A levels and my youngest 'bend it like Beckham' 15 yr old daughter attends a soccer school, so I have lots of space and time with my dog, part time projects and my Art, so I thought this would be a great way to open my house and meet some interesting people from all over the world. I have travelled a lot, drunk tea with the Dalai Lama, lived in a cave in India and been in a canoe with some tribesmen from Papua New Guinea ! I love world cinema , all types of Art especially Picasso, Antonio Tapies, Punch Drunk productions and Mark Rothko.I meditate daily and I shower on my roof terrace beneath the canopy of the open skies which I share with BA and the swallows ! I try to always be open minded and kind hearted..........Got lots of nice music , tropical plants and I love good natural foods !
