Spaces and homes for young professionals in South West London.

Our name says it all. We are inspired by the idea of creating desirable living spaces and homes for young professionals in South West London.

We create lasting relationships between people and property by managing properties for landlords, tenants and letting agents with a view to creating happy outcomes for everyone involved:

  • Desirable and advantageous for the landlords whose properties we rent, invest in and manage in full.
  • Desirable, affordable and hassle-free for the tenants who share the homes we create with other like-minded professionals
  • And desirable and cost-effective for the letting agents we partner with.

We know and love South West London, having lived and run successful property management and home improvement businesses here for the last 10 years.

We are always looking for houses to add to our growing portfolio. And we love to introduce young professionals in full-time employment to our neighbourhood and the co-living spaces we have created and that we care for.

Desirable property management solutions for home seekers, landlords and agents.

We put people first

We are about relationships not transactions. Shared homes not shared houses. We take pride in what we do. We care about our landlords, tenants and letting agent partners. We manage and look after their properties as if they were our home.

Desirable Living offers a range of properties that we have lovingly made into desirable house-shares. We offer an all-inclusive service that lets you get on with your busy life:

  • Our properties are close to public transport
  • Our viewings are more than a visit – we love to talk about the property, the household and the neighbourhood
  • You’ll love the high-standard fittings and furnishings that are desirable, stylish, and contemporary– including wifi and Sky TV
  • You’ll be part of a household of like-minded professionals –  No more sorting and paying of bills or taxes – just a monthly all-inclusive fee
  • Weekly cleaning of shared spaces (and garden maintenance where applicable)
  • And you can count on us if you need us.

Right location. Right people. Right price. Right at home.

End-to-end service for Landlords

Busy landlords want to maximize the investment from their property(ies) with the reassurance that their tenants are genuine and reliable, that their property is professionally cared for and enhanced over time and that they get a regular monthly income.

We take on your property as your tenant and guarantee an end-to-end service for you that includes:

  • Guaranteed monthly rent
  • No voids
  • Long-term contracts, 1-5 years
  • No fees or commission
  • Marketing the property
  • Viewings
  • Vetting and credit-checking potential tenants
  • Check-in / Checkout
  • All liaison with the tenants
  • HMO licensing, if needed
  • Complete, regular and professional care and maintenance from our in-house team (including the garden where applicable)
  • Full insurance
  • Responsiveness to repairs

Hands off for you. Hands-on for us. Peace of mind for all.

Our Story

10 years ago, we founded a home improvement business in Balham, South West London. Our name, Kelmscott, was inspired by the first home refurbishment project we did in Kelmscott Road, just off the vibrant Northcote Road.

Over the years our business has grown by word of mouth. Our clients refer us because of the highly professional and personalized approach we take to our work. Despite the inevitable upheaval, they like having us around and watching their plans and aspirations for better and more desirable living spaces come to life – no matter how big or small the project. They know they can count on us to deliver what we promise – on budget, on time and to exacting high standards.

Each member of our in-house team at Kelmscott takes great pride in improving and looking after our clients’ homes.

It is this that inspired us to create a sister company, Desirable Living. We wanted to create an affordable version of those desirable living spaces for young professionals who are not yet on the property ladder but who nevertheless want to love where they live.

Hassle-free letting service for agents

We take the hassle out of letting without impacting your fee or interfering with your contract(s) with your landlords.

  • We can move quickly to take over your day-to-day operations – of new lets and existing lets
  • We can work with your contracts or with ours

Right experience. Right partner. Right results.
