Property description

------------------------IN SUMMARY----------------------------

Beautifully presented flat with 2 large double rooms, huge living room with cable TV, fast wifi throughout. Landscaped garden and free, private parking. Own front door and totally private.

Dulwich is a lovely and safe, family friendly leafy area with parks, pubs and restaurants nearby. Very short walk to the train station which takes you to Central London in less than 15 mins. Quicker than the tube!!

---------------------THE BEDROOMS--------------------------

Two large (both 13 foot sq) double bedrooms.

The Master bedroom is larger and has fitted wardrobes and an iPod dock digital radio. Very comfortable super king sized bed with memory foam mattress.

The garden room is slightly smaller but benefits from a view over a landscaped garden and has a 42' cable TV. New King sized bed with memory foam mattress.

Good quality furnishings in both rooms. Very quiet and comfortable. WIFI access in both bedrooms. Both have lockable doors.

Good quality sheets and towels provided.

---------------THE REST OF THE FLAT------------------

18ft by 14ft living room with 42' cable TV, Apple TV and access to my large iTunes collection! There is also good hifi system with great speakers and a massive, comfy leather sofa ideal for chilling after a day's work or sightseeing.

Large kitchen, with double range oven, modern fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher and an excellent fresh bean coffee machine and plenty of crockery and cutlery and cooking equipment if you want to cook-in.

There is also a washing machine and tumble dryer (and a modest amount of detergent). I make a modest charge of £3 (honour system) for each wash to cover the costs.

Clean and tidy bathroom with a good quality power shower and tub.

--------------THE AREA AND WHAT'S NEARBY?---------------

Dulwich is perhaps less well known than other areas of London, but it really is a gem. It is in Zone 3 with easy access to London, but has the benefits of a feeling of space, greenery and calm - a great pleasure after spending time in busy central London. My road is a private one with a good, safe community spirit. No busy roads or traffic noise to disturb you. There are 3 great parks nearby (30 mins pleasant walk, or 5 min drive), fantastic dining and lots of gastro pubs nearby, one of the best ones being a 3 minute walk away.

Crystal Palace is a good night out, and only 15 min walk away. Brixton is also nearby, also a great night out with a superb live music venue if that suits.

Dulwich Village itself is around a mile away with a great community British style pub, stunning park and the Dulwich Picture Gallery - a beautiful gallery with superb standing artwork and visiting exhibitions that have recently included Warhol and Velasquez. There are no shortage of restaurants to meet every taste and budget nearby.

There are two very big supermarkets (Sainsburys and Tescos) walking distance away. There are also very good convenience stores 2 mins from the front door.

------------------TRANSPORT ROUTES------------------------

The flat has excellent access to central London. Sydenham Hill takes you to Victoria in 15 minutes. Gipsy Hill takes you to Victoria or London Bridge in 25 minutes. It is also very easy to connect to the tube at Brixton, Balham or Elephant and Castle. The No 3 bus takes you straight to the heart of the west end (Oxford St) and there is a bus stop very nearby.

For ease you will receive Oyster cards in your room which are easy for you to put money on and maximise the cost effectiveness of your travels in London.

The easiest airport for my home is Gatwick (about 1 hour), Heathrow and Stansted are slightly longer journeys depending on your preferred transport routes (about 90m mins)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I am a self employed financial advisor and have lived in London for about 20 years. I am 43 years young (!)...I love traveling and meeting people from foreign lands. In London, I play tennis for a local club, I am a keen road cyclist and also volunteer for a charity helping people with housing difficulties and homelessness.

Why the Owner Chose London, UK:
The flat is very spacious, airy and light. Both bedrooms have king-sized beds with memory foam mattresses and are super comfortable. The flat has excellent high speed broadband, cable TV and Apple TV. There is also a very pleasant landscaped garden. Dulwich is a beautiful pocket of tranquility compared to hectic central London. Having said that it is very easy to get into town. My place is very popular with families with children. It is a very safe neighbourhood. There is also an excellent kitchen with everything you would need if you wanted to cook at home and has a washing machine, dryer and dishwasher too.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I was very attracted to the feeling of spaciousness, the lovely green, leafy environment nearby. The living room is very big and has a massive front window letting lots of light in. It is a very private road though with very few passersby so safe, calm, quiet and pleasant with London on the doorstep!
