Guests will have use of the whole 90 sq metre (1,000 sq ft), 3-bedroom house apart from my study, which will be used for storage, including the wonderful roof terrace and the pleasant, planted balcony adjoining the living room, where I like to sit with coffee and a book or paper on sunny mornings when home.
The well-appointed kitchen and large dining area with its extendable teak table and original 50s Sputnik chandelier has everything you could need for cooking or entertaining (including a steamer, slow cooker etc). The large Moon picture on the wall is a copy of one of the first photos ever taken of the Moon, by Nevil Story-Maskelyne in 1957, and was specially produced for me by the curators of the British Library - lots of this kind of stuff in the place. NB: check-in is given as 5pm in order to allow my fabulous cleaner Marcia time to ready the flat, but it is usually possible to accommodate guests' particular needs, either with earlier check-in or an arrangement to drop bags off before 5 while she works. Thanks to the key safe, late check in is no problem.
*** Standard check-in time is 3pm onwards, and check-out time is before 11am.
Please note that a fee of £100 will be charged for lost keys. Please be careful with them.
