City of London apartment description

Located in the very centre of London, five minutes walk to the city (financial district) and 10 minutes bus ride to the West End (Theatres and entertainment district) Underground train station is just 200 metres. Buses to Oxford circus (shopping) St Pauls Cathedral, Covent Garden and Waterloo (London Eye) depart from the apartment building entrance. There is a security gate with video entry phone and a 24 hour concierge. Why stay in a cramped hotel?

This stunning and spacious apartment was redecorated throughout in March 2009 and is furnished to a high standard with stylish new soft black leather seating and black leather tables and chairs. Polished wood floors throughout. Floor to ceiling windows give superb city views. Private balcony with outdoor furniture. New kitchen appliances. Bathroom with power shower and toilet, Second En-suite bathroom with tub, shower and toilet. Private gym for residents. Close to the fashionable restaurants and bars of Clerkenwell, Shoreditch and Hoxton. Barbican Arts Centre and Museum of London 5 minutes walk. Better than a hotel.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2001

                          About the owner: Philip and Derek are in the travel business and often make trips to London for business and cultural events. We decided to buy our own place in central London and to rent it to others when we are not using it. We use it about three or four times a year. We needed a home that was secure and easy to look after with 24 hour 'front desk' service so we could come and go at any time of day or night.

                          Why the Owner Chose City of London:
                          This flat was new in 1999 and finished to a high standard. It has wonderful views of the city of London. It is next to Old Street Tube station on the Northern line and has excellent bus services from outside the front door. We never bring a car to London as it is too congested, so easy public transport was important to us. The location is within a short walk of dozens of restaurants, supermarkets, shops, pubs and coffee bars and is close to the trendy night time areas of Clerkenwell, Hoxton and Shoreditch.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          Perfect central Location. Magnificent city views. Excellent frequent bus service outside the door. Trendy bars, restaurants and nightlife close by. Tube station 200 metres.
