When it comes to renovating rental properties, most landlords tend to stick to inoffensive colour palettes, simple designs and straightforward furniture in the hope of appealing to the masses of tenants looking for a London home. But one landlord in Fulham has decided to buck the trend and create a luxurious family funhouse, full of modern twists.
On the market with Dexters for £2000 a week, this four-bedroom, four-bathroom property may look like any other renovated Victorian Terrace from the outside. But inside, the 3,500 square ft. house is deceptively large with quirky design features.
Renovated by award-winning architecture firm Inaki Leite Design, the home is set over four levels and feels incredibly spacious thanks to its largely open-plan layout. Those entering the property will find a striking glass staircase on the ground floor as well as a substantial living and dining area decorated with bespoke accent walls and monochrome finishing.
The real fun starts upstairs, though. Here the principal bedroom not only provides a mirrored walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom but also an integrated hot tub under a sloped glass roof that looks out onto the streets of London. On the second floor, the two children’s rooms have a unique net hammock in the ceiling that links their rooms together and each room has its own laundry chute making for easy wash days.
Another fun feature of the property lies in the basement where a stylish wooden slide leads into the luxury rental’s cinema room. This space is decked out with plush sofas and a velvet blackout curtain that can be drawn around for movie nights. The massive cinema screen also doubles up as a virtual golf simulator making it ideal for family entertainment.
Outside is a landscaped garden with integrated wooden seating, a built-in television and a living plant wall that makes the perfect spot for a summer barbeque or watching sports.
Rachel Patient, of Dexters, said: 'This property is really unique for Fulham and truly one of a kind thanks to its’ interior design.
'Any child is going to love this house - from the slide into the cinema room to the golf simulator and the net hammock above the children's bedrooms. It would make a fantastic family home.'
'The property is right by the River Thames and a stone's throw away from the New Kings Road, Parsons Green and Fulham Broadway. We expect it's going to wow lots of visitors and get snapped up pretty quickly.'
