Puppy Love (Pt.1)

We’re big dog lovers here at 1st Option HQ…

So I’ve pulled some of our favourite hounds to brighten up your Thursday…


From Great Danes to Cocker Spaniels, we’ve got you covered!


First up we have a gorgeous Cocker Spaniel taking a short break at the elegant Dalston Delight


Heading North to the beautiful Lordship Park, a stunning greyhound can be found pondering life (aka what to have for dinner)…


In Sevenoaks at the unique, modern Prism we have a graceful Great Dane often found taking the lift. 

Saving the best until last. If you don’t already know the duo: meet Violet and Lilly (menace)… Violet dislikes opera and Lily is mad for anything edible. 


To be continued…

Super South

There’s long been a friendly rivalry between North and South Londoners as to whose side of the river is King, but if you haven’t already heard it seems that the often less-loved Southern half is giving it’s rival a run for their money.

It’s as trendy as East London, leafy as the North and more affordable than West, South is in demand.

Did we also mention that we’ve taken on some amazing new locations that would make even the most committed North Londoners venture across the river too?

Our new Putney-based location 4teen is sleek and masculine with an amazing downstairs wine cellar - told you South of the river is more fun. 

image


Find Adventure in up-and-coming Brixton with it’s bright, bold colours, this location packs lots of personality with hints of our other favourite: millennial pink.


image


Don’t forget the green space that South has to offer. Step into the elegant Forest Villa and you’ll forget that you’re in one of the busiest cities in the World (almost).


image


Our final offering is the impossibly trendy Hix House. With industrial features and an amazing central location in Bermondsey this is one of our most unique spaces.

Shaken, not stirred

Our latest location ‘Skyfield’ is simply beautiful. The James bond inspired ‘Edwardian-Deco’ period country manor is one of the most beautiful locations in Hertfordshire…


image


Sitting in 16.5 acres of land, this 9,155 sq.ft 6 bed manor overlooks uninterrupted panoramic views of rolling countryside. There is a separate 3 bed lodge perfect for shoot and stay, along with a sweeping driveway flanked with cherry blossom trees.. what more could you want ?


image


We love the relaxing neutral colour scheme throughout…

With its outside pool, it’s a perfect location for sipping a vodka martini - shaken, not stirred of course!
