It’s that time of the year again, when attention turns to the courts of Wimbledon for the world’s oldest tennis tournament. We’re donning our tennis whites, eating strawberries and cream, and hoping the weather holds out so they can keep the roof of the convertible Centre Court open. If you’re wishing you were doing the same, take a peek at these Wimbledon pads.
Kenilworth Avenue is the ideal retreat for the tired-out tennis fan. This two-bedroom family home, peppered with artefacts from far-flung reaches, is a sanctuary in London’s quieter domain. Take to the sun-filled conservatory or the generous patio for tea when the excitement of the match becomes too much.
The Union Jack and the American flag both adorn the mantelpiece at nearby Pirbright Road, meaning that you’ll feel right at home here wherever your sporting allegiances lie. It’s a characterful five-bedroom townhouse, well-adapted for holidaying with children and bursting with toys for the little ones.
And finally, cool off from the heated competition at contemporary Marryat Road, a five-bedroom home located a short saunter from Wimbledon Common. Freshen up in one of the sleek bathrooms or lounge in the open air to revive yourself, ready for the next set.
