London's Stylish Homes

Lower Sloane Street, London.

One of my favourite houses are the townhouses of London. Actually, when I daydream of where I would like to live, I am quite torn between a London Townhouse in Chelsea or a Parisian Apartment overlooking the Seine River. Don't get me wrong, I love our house here in Toronto. I just admire the architecture, design and the history of these London Townhouses. I am also shocked by their astronomical values.
During my last trip to London this year, I got a chance to discover these townhouses along Lower Sloane Street. I  walked from Sloane Square to Lower Sloane Street on a peaceful Saturday morning before heading for breakfast at my favourite Daylesford Organic Farmshop & Cafe on Pimlico Road. The townhouses on Sloane Street, near Sloane Square are built with red brick, Edwardian Style, and surrounded by huge, mature trees. Then, I also got a chance to walk along Brompton Road and discovered that the townhouses there have cream coloured brick with white trim windows.  I am also featuring here two accomplished, talented and stylish ladies - Canadian Colette Van Den Thillart and Italian Allegra Hicks, and their two different London townhouses.

London Townhouses in South Kensington. I like the tall windows and small balconies in front with the matching boxwood plants.

Allegra's Drawing Room looks so comfortable and stylish. Since her divorce from her husband Ashley Hicks, son of  the late World renowned Interior Decorator, David Hicks, she has re-decorated the same townhouse they used to share by herself.  Allegra is a very talented artist and designer.

Here is a view of the private Brompton Square and a view of London Townhomes surrounding it. Doesn't this look so peaceful and green in the middle of busy Brompton Road, near Harrods?  I am dreaming on!!!

  4. These homes are just so breathtaking. So uniform and yet crisp. reminds me of park slope in new york. The brownstones just on the tree-lined streets and one by one joined together. Gorgeous.

    1. You are so funny Tammy! Right now,I'm quite happy daydreaming about it! Those townhouses in London are worth millions of pounds. As in astronomically high values! But don't worry, when my daydream comes true, I will invite you for sure for afternoon tea then we will go shopping!

  6. I've always thought the london and Paris apartment/townhouses have real architectural interest. I would miss having a lawn and ample yard though. Great post . . .

  7. Wonderful post. I too love the London townhouses especially the ones in South Kensington with the balconies although as you say a Parisian apartment on the Seine would be lovely too! I feel fortunate to be able to visit London quite easily as I'm only two hours away by train.

  8. love this!

  10. I love London style houses, the whole city is so gorgous!
