About this listing
A gorgeous modern self contained apartment within our Victorian house with its own entrance and cute back garden. The apartment is extremely well located for many tourist areas of London and the local daily markets and shops, including a great 24/7 grocery/deli just 2 minutes away.
The apartment is within an 1870's house, but has a modern very characterful design, making full use of the space. You enter through the side gate, walk through the garden across the decking and into the apartment though the double doors. It's has a lovely cosy atmosphere and is a real den to escape to.
The first space you come to is the lounge with lots of very comfortable large bean bags and cushions. The small kitchen area is off to one side and includes all the regular kitchen appliances including a microwave, dishwasher and two ring hob. Through the arch (which has a sliding door) is the large double bedroom with ensuite shower/wet room with lots of mirrors. There is a very comfortable Kaymed king size bed with lovely white Egyptian cotton bedlinen. We supply plenty of fluffy white towels.
The main bed is a very comfortable Kaymed Kingsize bed.
A second bed can be set up in the lounge area. It's a very good double Jay-Be Royal Pocket Comfort Folding Guest Bed. Please email me for more details to see what works best for you.
