About this listing
My flat is always described by friends as one of the nicest places they have ever been to in London. It has high ceilings, lots of light, a fantastic south facing garden and views of the city. Th large sitting room/kitchen has french doors onto a balcony that leads into the back garden down some steps. It is in an area half an hour from any central London location but surrounded by trees and greenery. I love it here and I'm sure you will too. Having lived in London for 25 years I have found the area that gives access to the city yet is quiet and you can hear bird song rather than traffic. It is a ground floor flat in a Victorian house. There is a large kitchen with a 6 seater French country oak table. The living room is quiet and relaxed. There is a large shower room and a separate bathroom (with bath). The place has been decorated beautifully. Transport is very easy. 2 mins to the bus. 10 mins to the tube station which serves two major lines - Piccadilly line to Heathrow airport and Finsbury park which is 2 stops to Kings Cross station. It is 1/2 an hour to Oxford Street. And I have a private garden where you can sit in the sun. The garden has a table and chairs and the sun is always in the South facing corner at the end of the day for cocktail hour. There is parking outside the house on the street. The residential parking means that it is free for all times except 10 am to 12noon (2 hours a day). If you need parking vouchers as a guest this can be arranged. The bus is at the end of the street and takes 10 mins to the station or you can walk. I have cable TV, wifi in the flat and I am a great host.
I have a beautiful space and I want you to enjoy it as if it is your home. The area is called Crouch End and is a lovely old village that joined into London and has great coffee shops and restaurants. Crouch End is a very trendy area and desirable by many artists, musicians, writers and creative people to live. It was once a village and has that feel. Bustling with great coffee shops, book shops, continental food delis and cool shops, it is a haven from central London.
I rent out either the whole flat or one bedroom so please ask what is available. I have 3 gorgeous cats and they come with the flat. My very good friend lives in the same house so can feed them if you can't and they go in and out of the cat flat so no problem to you. They get on with their life. I love them very much so you have to be cat lovers and be kind to them.
As I do a lot of yoga I would appreciate you taking off your shoes at the entrance. Also as the flat has wooden floors, heels and loud sounding foot fall, can really be reduced for my neighbours. The kitchen counter top is oiled wood so please do not leave wet pans or pools of water on the wood as it does stain. I really appreciate these little things. And I have cats so if the flat is let out at a time when I'm not taking the cats with me, I would make that clear and would appreciate arranging their feeding. This can be with you or with a neighbour who will come in. They are lovely friendly cats that are clean and don't smell. And finally I have a cleaning lady who can continue to clean on Tues afternoons which I will include in the package. She changes sheets and cleans the whole flat so it's nice for guests.
