About our home
A stylish house on a cobbled Mews in London's trendy Camden (just off Camden Square), offering two en-suite bedrooms (one with its own balcony overlooking the garden), a comfortable lounge with Sky TV, large modern kitchen (including Smeg fridge, dishwasher and washing machine) and dining room. There is also a separate toilet downstairs. The property boasts a 36 sq metre paved, very quaint, fenced private front garden, replete with Weber BBQ and spotlights. Part of the garden can be used as a driveway. The house is our pride and joy - it was completely refurbished in 2010 and has been furnished to a high (and quirky) standard. High speed wireless broadband is available throughout, and the house has great central heating for winter. A professional cleaning service comes once a week.
The house is 500m from Camden Rd Station (overground - orange line on a train map), from which there is a direct train to Stratford, in London's 2012 Olympic Park, which takes 22 minutes. It is 1km from Camden Town underground station, which is on the Northern Line, taking you direct to central London. The area is also well served by buses.
Nearby you will find a 24-hr supermarket (150m), great pubs (300m), Hamstead Heath (1km) and Camden Town (1km), with its famous market, bars and music venues. A short bus, train, cycle or cab ride will get you to Oxford Circus / Leicester Square / Regents Park in 15 minutes, or down to Westminster in 20.
Eclectic Camden is London's musical hub. It's culturally diverse and interesting and you are as likely to bump into an international student as a goth, a distinguished economist or an international music sensation. It boasts great bars, clubs and live music, as well as cozy pubs offering delicious Sunday roasts and beer gardens in the summer. The Camden market, which sits on a canal (where boating is an option), is world famous and well worth a visit.
Our road is a quiet mews (in fact it's the longest mews in London), with fantastically diverse architecture (well known for being unusual in London), and our neighbours are a friendly mixture of families, couples and house sharers.
We do have a cat, Klaus. He is so cute, but I won't lie, he has a naughty streak! It would be great to exchange with fellow animal lovers.
