Wilmington Sq

Nestled in the heart of London’s fashionable Clerkenwell, Yardley Street is a Grade II-listed period property on the site of a former Georgian dairy. Occupying four floors, it has a kitchen/dining room on the ground floor and a glass-ceilinged reception room and library/cinema room in the basement.

The house’s central London location makes it a perfect base for visitors to the capital. It is walking distance from Covent Garden and the West End, the British Museum, Kings Cross rail station and the St Pancras Eurostar Terminal. And the famous pubs, cafés and restaurants of Exmouth Market are all right on your doorstep.

Describing itself as “Dickensian with a twist”, Yardley Street offers a vivid sense of heritage London combined with House of Clarkson’s unique visual flair, with statement chandeliers, Wedgwood ceramics, and original Georgian fireplaces. Relax in front of a roaring fire, watch a classic movie in the cosy cinema room, or luxuriate in the decadent tropical vibe of the glass-ceilinged garden room. This is stylish London living as you’ve never experienced it before.

Ideally located for the bars and restaurants of Hackney Wick and Homerton, Lofts on the Park is also a short taxi-ride from London’s 02 arena. Enjoy a brisk morning jog or gentle stroll through the leafy avenues of Victoria Park, then go for brunch in one of the area’s acclaimed cafés.

Representing the pinnacle of loft-style living, the apartment’s open-plan duplex layout offers flexible accommodation for 4–6 people, while the signature House of Clarkson décor – an eclectic mix of mid-century modern furniture, curated artworks and flamboyant flourishes like the amazing double-height chandelier – guarantees an unforgettable stay in the coolest of urban boltholes.

Georgian Russell

Situated in the heart of Hastings’s most vibrant neighbourhood, House of Clarkson’s Georgian Russell apartment is the perfect choice for a relaxed seaside getaway. Arranged on two floors, this tongue-and-groove-panelled maisonette with three double bedrooms provides the ultimate base from which to explore everything Hastings Old Town has to offer. It’s so central, you can walk everywhere.

A stone’s throw from the seafront, pedestrianised Georgian Russell is Old Town’s prime spot for evening entertainment and daytime browsing. With many of Hastings’ best cafés, restaurants, bars, independent shops and vintage emporiums on your doorstep, you’re right at the centre of the action – yet safely tucked away in your private haven two floors up. And with three reception rooms offering plenty of space to chill out and spread out, you’ll be just as happy staying in, if the mood takes you.

House of Clarkson used a set of beautiful kilim rugs as the inspiration for the apartment’s joyous, fun, colour-saturated décor, summed up as “vivid ice cream shades and 1950s-inspired South American modernism”. Designed to make you smile, it’s all very Instragrammable, especially the show-stopping bathroom, in which everything – even the sink – is yellow.

Tolérance is moored in historic East London, within a few miles of major London landmarks, and yet there’s a sense of being a tranquil and secluded natural setting, with stately swans gliding past and the added security of a private mooring with lockable gate.
