About our home

Leafy, liberal, arty Crouch End

Close to central London, we are surrounded by greenery, with a park less than five minutes walk away including tennis courts and children’s play area, and with a friendly outdoor cafe serving good coffee and snacks. Loads of other places with access greenery, outdoor pools; great food, cafes, boutiques, etc.

Clean and quiet street; three-bedroomed apartment occupying the upper floors of a large converted late-Victorian terraced house.

Short bus ride (6-7 minutes) or 20 minute walk to Finsbury Park, from where it is a four-minute subway ride to King's Cross St Pancras, eight minutes to Oxford Circus, etc. For Shoreditch and East London, walk to Harringay station and get off at Old Street.

If you have children, we have a high chair, cot and toys, etc.
