Central London 1 Bedroom

It's the location!
Just off Berkeley Square in Mayfair. A quiet enclave with historic mews houses in the Centre of London. Big name galleries like the Phillips, The Gagosian, and the Royal Academy are minutes away alongside high end restaurants, bistros, cafe's and nightlife. West End plays and musicals are walking distance, as is Carnaby Street, Soho and Piccadilly Circus.
The big tourist attractions of Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and the Houses of Parliament/ Big Ben are also an easy walk.
Oxford Street and the high end retail of New Bond Street are also very close.
Green Park and Bond Street tube stations are 5 minutes away.

A first floor flat with balcony (shared) and elevator, comfortable, with quiet neighbours and bohemian decor chosen by 2 writers.
Outside the bedroom window are statues of Terence Donovan and Twiggy who worked together on this street in the 60's.

We find this home a quiet place for writing and are very close to our teaching jobs.

About Me
Hi Im Gavin, I am a property manager, carpenter and musician. My husband Phil is a playwright, director and teacher. We are looking to exchange our Central London home in order to spend some or all of the 2017/18 academic year in New York City. We are just coming to the end of a successful 2 week swap here in New York.
