About the neighbourhood
The location of this wonderful house is unbeatable. Although it is situated in the very heart of London, it is quietly positioned. The area is very safe and the neighbouring streets are full of great local shops, cafes and restaurants. At one end of the street is a local food market; at the other, under two minutes' walk from the house, Pimlico Underground ('Tube') Station and terrific local bus routes. You can WALK to most of the main tourist attractions, and there are major theatres and a luxury cinema just up the road. Shopping is great! In the surrounding streets there are also some wonderful haute couture designers and antique shops. The architecture is mid-19th Century - street upon street of stunning white 'stucco' terraces.
