Description

The space

Double room in Victorian purpose built flat, situated on 3rd floor with lift access. ( One of two bedrooms, other is mine )
The room is fully furnished with double bed, wardrobe, bedside table, and bookshelf.

I live in the Kennington / Vauxhall / Oval area, SE11 5RW, south of Thames. Quite close to Central London - 20 min by bus to Piccadilly circus and Soho. The Parliament buildings at Westminster and the London Eye lie within walking distance.

There is no smoking inside the apartment, and no pets are allowed.

The area is very nice and green. Several parks are nearby (Kennington park and Vauxhall park). There are several very good restaurants nearby, a big grocery store (Tesco) is a 5 min walk away. The area is very safe.

Lots of easy, great transport links with 8 direct buses taking you to the heart of London within 5-15 minutes. (10minutes to Charing Cross, Trafalgar Square and Westminster,15minutes to Regent Street, Oxford Street and Piccadilly Circus). Oval (Northern Line) and Vauxhall (Victoria Line) Tube , and Vauxhall Train Stations are 5 minutes away on foot with 3 London cycle hire docking stations within 3 minutes of the apartment for hire at 1pound a day.

The flat is situated behind Oval cricket ground in a very quiet neighbourhood despite being so close to Central London.
