109 Mile End Road is possibly the most fashionable address in London.
The locale for dozens of glamorous fashion and décor shoots, this 300-year-old townhouse has housed plenty a celebrity from Helen Mirren to Orlando Bloom.
It’s also a gorgeous guesthouse for visiting models, photographers, actors and other creative types.
Homeowner David Carter (an interior designer) has allocated two rooms for guests, both chicly appointed with vintage trunks, mannequins and whimsical furnishings.
Consider it a home away from home (no check-in, no staff etc.) in a great location with your own parking spot and use of a washer/dryer and a kitchen.
Now, if only home were this grand.
