On the Park

This flat may not be on Russell Square but it does overlook Brockwell Park, one of south London's green gems and Brockwell Lido, one of London's favourite outdoor pools. It is available for a minimum period of two months over the spring and summer months (may through to mid-September, no later). A contract can extend to a maximum of three months, negotiable. Any longer than that would be a new contract as I am on sabbatical so we would need to coordinate.

Most suitable for a quiet, professional and tidy couple.

Fully furnished, 2nd floor Victorian conversion; sunny & light place. Two bedrooms; main bedroom is small with double bed; second bedroom currently study but converts to full bedroom as has a double sofa-bed.

The house overlooks the park and is equidistant from Brixton and Herne Hill/Dulwich with access to the park a couple of minutes on foot. Tube, buses, trains within 10 minutes walk and direct lines to central London, various campuses.

Garden-care: Am looking for people willing - and able - to look after front potted garden i.e. provide thorough and regular watering every 2 days; more often if dry and hot as is a south-facing front. Also there are orchids that need some i.e. not too much! (instructions included).

- Non-smokers please.
- No kids or families (don't ask and then I won't have to say no!)
- no pets (as above)

One month Deposit required (bond deposited with DPS).
The rent is all inclusive so no additional costs need to be calculated. Full WiFi and other A/V facilities available plus usual mod cons.

Email me (m.i.franklin@gold.ac.uk) as I travel quite a lot. Viewing by arrangement.
