Enjoy a taste of smart living in fashionable Putney. This is a smart double room, with modern private bathroom, which makes this spacious Edwardian home an ideal choice for all, including families.
2 of the doubles have desks for business use: wifi is good in all bedrooms
We have 3 double rooms (1 on the 2nd and 2 on the 3rd floors) using separate bathrooms, one on for each floor. This is one on the 3rd floor : the base price is £75/ room/night. Prices may rise in peak periods and may go down in low season.
There are currently 4 rooms generally available through the year: 3 doubles and a single. We have 2 foldaway beds too - so we sleep 9 or 10 including a futon - to add great flexibility. If a foldaway bed/futon is required to add a 3rd person in the room an additional charge will be made, the final price may depend on your length of stay.
All rooms are offered subject to availability:all are of a high standard.
2 doubles have desks for business use: wifi is good in all bedrooms

Échanges avec les voyageurs
We expect guests will wish to have their own space and privacy. However, Jonathan is an experienced tour guide and lecturer in history and heritage topics: he is happy to advise you on all sightseeing issues in London and provide talks on subjects of your choice.
Generally,we expect to be at the property during Guests' stays with us.
The All England Club is a short 93 Bus ride away,so we are very convenient for the Championships. We advise early booking.
Twickenham & Harlequins rugby stadia are 30 minutes door to door as is Chelsa FC; Fulham FC is a 20 minute walk away.
The Chelsea Flower Show can be reached easily by train, bus or taxi as can all West End theatres.
We are a non-smoking household but not obsessive about it. Guests can smoke on the terrace alongside the conservatory. Generally we are reluctant to accept infants but ask us anyway.
Jonathan and I have lived in Putney for 20 years and our family are now largely grown up. We have a second home on the Isle of Wight which we have owned for over 20 years and also rent out: worth checking out.
Putney is a great jumping off point for airports and the West End; parking is good and it has been great for the children's schooling. Shopping is good;restaurants and pubs are good value and varied;there are good local theatres as well.
We enjoy tennis, skiing, sailing and now golf. I play bridge and row regularly on the Thames. We laugh a lot - we should:our eldest son Max is a professional comedian and presenter.
Jonathan is a qualified Tour Guide and is available for London walking tours and talks around London: so we have a vast knowledge of the history and heritage of Britain. Please talk to us if you wish to use this service.
We try to keep our home as informal and friendly as we can. For instance, if we can, we will give you a lift up to the station.
We have traveled extensively around the world,including the States, Canada, Australia & New Zealand. Jonathan's business took him all around Africa too. We recently went to Nepal and are planning a trip to South America in 2015.
