You don’t need to buy to get a stylish pad, and this week’s collection of London homes to rent proves the point perfectly.


So let’s step inside a bright and breezy trio, including a converted milk depot, a reinvigorated Victorian terrace, and a sleek contemporary mews house.

The visually arresting building was formerly a milk depot and has been imaginatively redesigned by Quay 2c architects, including a communal hall dominated by a striking staircase with intercom entry.

The apartment’s elevated position is most prominent in the open-plan living and kitchen area, where floor-to-ceiling sliding doors open onto a large balcony with views over the surrounding treetops.

London homes to rent: three bedroom Victorian house in Surrey Quays

This charming three-bedroom Victorian house, with a private garden, is just a stone’s throw from the green open spaces of Southwark Park and close to Canada Water tube.

Set back from the street, the house has delightful London stock brick with white stucco detailing and is steeped in history, with a blue plaque from English Heritage celebrating its former resident, the social reformer Richard Carr Gomm (OBE).

Making a point 

London homes to rent: two bedroom mews house in SE1

A modern, two-bedroom mews house with parking and a private terrace tucked away in a hidden courtyard in SE1, just off wonderful Bermondsey Street.

Covering almost 1,200 sq ft, the interior centres around a stunning double-height living space with a striking glass footbridge overhead connecting the master bedroom to the terrace.

Huge Velux windows in the roofline ensure cascades of natural light, while a palette of white, oak, steel and glass delivers a timeless and stylish setting to enjoy night and day.
