We live in central London in a beautiful leafy green area between two large parks - Wandsworth Common and Clapham Common. The area is known as "between the commons" in Battersea/ Clapham. We live just off of Northcote Road which is famous for it's lovely shops, markets, cafes, bars and restaurants. There are bakeries for fresh breads and pastries, daily markets, butchers for meats and fish markets - all within a 5 minute walk.
Our newly renovated flat/ apartment is lovely, modern, spacious and bright with lots of windows. It takes up the entire floor in a beautifully updated Victorian house. It is 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and has recently been modernized. It is in a very safe, family-friendly area.
We are very close to public transportation tube (Clapham South tube station is 13 min walk), trains (Clapham Junction - 13 min walk), and lots of buses. But there is everything you need within walking distance like cafes, restaurants, bars, grocery stores, markets, bakeries, shopping, etc.
