The flat itself is the ground floor of a beautiful Georgian mansion-house, renovated at the end of 2008. We have 1 large bedroom (with 22-inch LCD TV), a bathroom with shower and a huge kitchen/living room with 10-foot high ceilings and wooden floors. There is also access to a large garden, shared with the other flats in the building, but free to use for BBQs, relaxing, etc.
In the living room there is a 40-inch Sony Bravia LCD TV, PS3 & Wii, Surround sound amp and Media Centre, as well as wireless broadband internet.
There is also a washing machine, central heating, cooker, microwave, fridge freezer - everything you’d expect.
Our flat is situated in the heart of Clapham, in the South West of London. The city centre is very close, with Oxford Circus just 20 minutes away by Tube. Two tube stations (Stockwell and Clapham North) are both within 2-3 minutes walk from the flat. There is private off-road parking if you plan on hiring a car.
Clapham itself if a lively young area, with great restaurants and numerous bars, all within easy walking distance. The large park, Clapham Common is 15 minutes walk, or a 2-minute tube journey away, and is great in the summer, with frequent festivals and concerts taking place.
My Partner and I are young professionals working in the Fashion and Music industries. We love our flat and its surroundings and enjoy a great social life in the area.
We're thinking of moving to New York, so would like to get a taste of life there!
