Let me welcome you to our bespoke designed two-bed garden flat 20 minutes from central London and nestled in the greenest part of the city. This is a newly developed London home that is steeped in history and character. My father, who was born in the house, became an architect and has now, at the end of his career, been able to bring the property back to life in all its glory!

The space

We've been careful to preserve the character of the building with bullet holes from the Second World War in the wall at the side of the house as you enter the apartment.

The space has been fully modernised and comes with Nest, an intelligent fire alarm system, and underfloor heating.

We are very happy to share our London home with people from around the world so that you can experience the true heart of London!

We look forward to hearing from you 🙂

Guest access

You have the entire home in which to relax. A safe haven from the hustle and bustle of London City. There is also a gorgeous private open plan garden where you can unwind outdoors.

Interaction with guests

I live locally so will be able to help you if there are any issues.

Matt & Daff’s home is located in London,United Kingdom.

My father was born in this house in 1948, just three years after the war. At that time Clapham was something of a melting pot for people around the world to start a new life with many settlers from Poland and the Caribbean - it was a poor and rough area at that time. Changing through the years thanks to it's great transport links, Clapham is now an affluent neighbourhood with a real village feeling.

Getting around

Clapham is very popular not just because it's green, beautiful, and relaxed but also thanks to it's versatility as a transport hub. Here are the connections from our house.


The Northern line is a 10 minute walk across Clapham Common from the flat. It's always a nice walk! The Northern line takes you into central London in 20 minutes so you can get anywhere you may want in no time at all.


Clapham Junction - links to all national destinations and airports (Gatwick in 20 minutes). This is a 25 minute walk or a 5 minute bus ride from the house.

We have Wandsworth Road on the Overground rail network a 5 minute walk away. That is a great link to North East London - Shoreditch and Liverpool Street. It also takes you to Clapham Junction in 4 minutes in the other direction.


Just behind the house is a bus stop where the 87 takes you to Trafalgar Square, the West End, Covent Garden (25 mins). There is also the 77 that takes you to the amazing Southbank (National Theatre, British FIlm Institute, ITV Studios, Royal Festival Hall) and that takes just 20 minutes. There is also the 452 that takes you to Harrods, the Royal Albert Hall, and Hyde Park.
