Not every metal is precious. And not every home is Sutton Lane North. Bullion-bright and twinkly with trinkets, you'll value this apartment highly. There's a richness to the honeyed yellow and cream tones, a rarity to the Ian Fleming volumes, a winking glow to the gilded frames and lamps. And if the interiors are glittering, your location is golden. From the communal swimming pool spangling below to Chiswick's exquisite towpaths, restaurants and parks, every single spot on your map may as well be marked with an X.
A young couple, your hosts have their own little treasure to look after. And thanks to its stencilled walls and armfuls of fluffy toys, her room is surely stamped with the hallmark of cuteness.
Girded by trees, this home is as much gilt-edged as it is green-fingered. Follow the light into the sitting room and watch it flash from the mirrors to the old humidor and prettily framed artwork, before settling on the comfy sofa with a vintage edition of Bond. If the kitchen is modern and bright, the communal gardens and swimming pool are airy and brighter still. And when the moon silvers the waters, tired eyes will widen at the bedroom's intricate sketches and twinkling lamps.
