Gerard purchased this House in 1997
Why Gerard chose Fulham
Fantastic location with great transport links and a full range of shops, amenities and facilities, we even have indoor rock climbing all within a few minutes walk of the house. We also have a great selection of food shops and restaurants nearby, from fine dining to pub grub, although we also loved eating in and making use of our high end open plan kitchen
What makes this House unique
The house has a lovely spacious living area covering the whole ground floor, with generous bedrooms upstairs so it's easy to be sociable and also to find a quiet spot on the floors above. It's also a great plus to have the little rear garden and the off street parking behind that.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Every element of renting this home was handled with care and hospitality. Rob and Alex are gracious hosts who take time to invest in meaningful touches.
Excellent housing option!
This home is an excellent option if traveling to London. The owners were extremely timely and thorough in their communication including greeting upon arrival and seeing us off at departure. The description and pictures mirror the actual home perfectly. Located less than a 10 minute walk to the Fulham-Broadway tube station, we were able to get to all parts of London seamlessly. Additionally, The Rose Pub across the street was a great dining experience with high quality food and reasonable pricing. Overall, this property is a must if needing a place to stay. We had two families and it suited all of our needs. Thanks again for the excellent hospitality!!!
This was an impeccable property and the customer service was amazing. Rob was there and gave a thorough tour of the home when we arrived. There were many thoughtful touches, such as a welcome sign and some food staples already in the kitchen for us. We stayed during record-breaking temperatures and the two air conditioning units in the bedrooms kept the whole house comfortable. The location was wonderful. Easy to get around the city. I would stay there again.
Great house for a family gathering; very high quality finish and excellent welcoming communication
High quality home with all the equipment for a very comfortable stay. Location is good to explore Chelsea and easy access to central London or a walk to the Thames and the River Walk into Westminster. Very clean and great explanation of the workings of the house.
Thank you for hosting our family and friend get together from Houston TX, Dublin and Dorset.
Perfect house for stay in London
Myself, my wife, 3 kids(Age 15, 13, and 9) and senior in-laws(7 people total) stayed at this house for about a week in June 2019. The house was extremely modern and well equipped for our entire stay. Gerard, Alex and Rob have taken great care in ensuring that their guests are comfortable and relaxed throughout their stay. While the house was being cleaned from a previous guest checking out Rob allowed us to store our luggage at the house after arriving from the US on an early flight. Upon our return, the house was immaculate and Rob gave us a complete rundown on how everything operated. Gerard, Alex and Rob were all very easy to contact prior to our arrival with any questions I had and continued to be reachable when I had a few questions during our stay in London. The house is located in a great neighborhood with several restaurants within walking distance. The Rose Pub about a minute walk from the house was great and The Santa Maria Pizzeria is about a 3 minute walk away was good as well. The Fulham Broadway tube station is an easy, flat 7 minute walk and the River Thames is about a 8-9 minute walk. There is a grocery store located at the Fulham Broadway station and also a pharmacy/drug store as well. The four bedroom, 3 1/2 bath house with open kitchen floor plan was perfect size for the 7 of us to enjoy our week in London. The house had just the right amount of space and allowed us to socialize together for meals but also allowed us the ability to retire to a room and rest if necessary. The house was also a peaceful retreat for us to return to after walking around London during the day. The wi fi worked flawless and the tv worked great with Sky cable. My kids really enjoyed that the house had Netflix. The kitchen is well equipped and we used it extensively for preparing breakfast on most mornings and a few dinners. We especially enjoyed using the dining room area that was enclosed in glass for meals and evening family card games that my kids and senior in-laws will have lasting memories. Overall, this house was the "Perfect house for our stay in London" and I would recommend it to anyone visiting London for a short stay or a long term rental.
First time in London from the US with my husband & 3 adult kids. Lovely neighborhood. Convenient to the Tube, restaurants & grocery. Lots of info in the house to help us get around & explore. Comfortable beds, nice furnishings, plenty of closet space. Rob & Ian were very friendly & helpful. Perfect for our family. Would love to stay there again.
Nestled in a bend of the River Thames, with affluent Chelsea guarding its northern border, genteel Fulham is one of London's safe havens. Any visitor to this attractive neighbourhood would be surprised to know that Fulham had a somewhat unpromising beginning, and was known in the 18th century as a hotbed of debauchery, where the London elite would go to drink, gamble and visit ladies of the night. The Fulham of today is a firmly established upmarket location, packed with shops, bars, boutiques and restaurants. It's thoughtfully and spaciously laid out and a real delight for locals is the picturesque commute either along the river or through Eel Brook Common. Of course, there's the added bonus of plenty of lovely riverside pubs for a quick drink on the way home. Numerous young couples and City professionals have made the move into this leafy corner of London and its attractive properties and kid friendly nature have also lured numerous families to the area, who often remain for decades. Adding continental charm by the bucket load, there's a large French and Italian community here.

Architecture and property
For much of its history, Fulham’s property market consisted of just one building, the impressive Manor House. Now known as Fulham Palace, this estate was bought by the Bishop of London in around 700AD and used by his successors as a summer residence for over eight centuries. In common with so many London areas, the advent of the railway at the end of the 19th century transformed Fulham from a largely rural area to a thriving commuter hub. Property building boomed when the railway rolled into town and today the area predominantly comprises wide tree lined roads of Victorian and Edwardian architecture. More recently, a large development of high end flats and apartments have sprung up at Imperial Wharf, maximising the potential of its riverside location.
