Fully fitted comfortable modern single room in beautiful Victorian house in Fulham (zone 2), a short 6 or 7 minute walk to the tube station of Fulham Broadway.

Gas heating with individual thermostatic controls, wireless internet and a large new bathroom with bathtub and walk-in shower for extra luxury. Utility bills included. The room is well lit, with a window overlooking the rear patio. So this makes it an especially quiet room, shielded from traffic noise. All mod cons, including fully fitted kitchen, bathroom and laundry machine.

Has a single bed, large heat radiator, chest of 6-drawers, large desk with glass top, wall shelves, large glass wall-cabinet, and flat-screen TV. I provide towels, bed linen and a hair-dryer - so you can travel lighter. There are umbrellas you can borrow, and I am on hand to answer any questions and offer any advice.
Fulham Broadway has a great buzz about it, being next door to Chelsea, and with superb shopping facilities, a host of restaurants, tube station, gym and cinema complex. This location is also perfect for the Earls Court Exhibition Centre, as you can walk to it, or take a tube two stops up. Most major high street banks are just a stone's throw away from the house, which is located on a quiet street. Five major food stores are also all a few minutes' walk (website hidden) house is also close to West Brompton Tube station and a short walk away from Earls Court with all its restaurants and other facilities.
The front door has two high security BANHAM locks. The whole house has gas fired central heating and contemporary heat-efficient radiators. Rent covers all utility bills. Cleaning is provided at a nominal cost of £ 12 every two weeks (or shorter stay).
The London Film Academy is just a 3 minutes' walk away from my house, and I last hosted a student from there in July 2012. The Earls Court Exhibition Centre is a short walk away.
If you have a visitor who needs to stay in the house (few days), you can make a special arrangement with me to use my guest room.

Interaction with Guests
I am usually around to help and advise should any assistance be requested, especial with any questions about local travel.

The house is a 6-minute walk from the tube station of Fulham Broadway, with frequent underground trains to Central London. There are also several buses serving the area. Bus 14 and 414 take you to Victoria & Albert Museum and then on to central London.
EasyBus stops very near my house, and offers fast and frequent transport direct coach service to Gatwick Airport. If you pre-book, the fares can be as low as £ 2! You can book online.
From Heathrow Airport, you can take the London Underground train to Fulham Broadway tube station (with one change at Earls Court). Then it is walking distance to my house.
This is a quiet, peaceful and "no-smoking" household. Smoking is strictly out of bounds and a safety and health hazard to others living here. However it is OK to smoke in the rear patio, which is outdoors.
I keep getting asked if this is an apartment! It is a large 2300 square feet Victorian house with 5 bedrooms and three bathrooms. The room I am advertising is a private SINGLE room within the house.
The house has a peaceful atmosphere and I am keen to maintain that, as I work from home. Please do not play music or television so as it can be heard outside your room. It is expected that you keep your room reasonably tidy and free of litter. And please leave or enter the house quietly without banging doors! I am usually around most of the time to provide any assistance or offer any advice, when needed. Don't hesitate to ask. Parties are definitely not allowed!
For the safety and security of all concerned, please ensure that the front door of the house is shut properly when you enter or leave. Many guests have been lax and left the door's lock mechanism disengaged. It would also be much appreciated if clothes are dried on drying racks in the large bathroom. Please do not dry your clothes on radiators!
I am a successful international composer of orchestral music and opera, with wide ranging cultural and artistic interests. I am friendly and welcoming, and my home is peaceful, recently renovated, contemporary in style and has good natural light. I love theatre, film, sculpture and modern dance and have often hosted creative people in my home.
I also make videos as a hobby. Have travelled a lot to New Zealand in recent years. Visitors from abroad are especially welcome.
Before you make a booking, I would be grateful if you would take the time to fill out your profile and provide a picture of yourself. I like to know who I would be welcoming into my home!
