My wife and I are living in a beautiful 1930's apartment in a mansion building, with very big bright rooms and high ceilings. Recently fully renovated, it's one minute from the high street with bars, restaurants, shops and cinema.
Easy and short access to direct trains and buses into and around central London. e.g. London Victoria (20 mins) , Brixton (10 mins) and London Bridge and Kings Cross both (25 mins).
