Bright 1-bed in NW2, British Library 30 minutes door-to-door

A gloriously sunny one-bedroom flat with high ceilings, on the first floor of an Edwardian terraced house between Willesden Green tube station (Jubilee line) and Cricklewood mainline station (Thameslink line to St Pancras and Blackfriars). The area is very interesting (you may know it from Zadie Smith's novels!), but also has a surprisingly quiet, residential feel for Zone 2.
The flat has a bay window in the living room, and is bright and cheerful throughout the day. There is a wilderness area to the back which means that the view from the bedroom is lovely and green. The flat has one bedroom with a kingsize bed and ensuite bathroom with a shower. The living room has a dining table and a comfortable sofabed. The kitchen has a washer-dryer, a microwave, an electric oven and a gas hob. Heating is gas, and bills are included in the listed fee.
Parks within walking distance are the lovely Gladstone Park (15 mins), and Hampstead Heath (30 mins). The British Library is 30 minutes door-to-door, taking the train from Cricklewood Station, with similar travel times to the other Bloomsbury institutions (Senate House Library, University College London). The Central School of Speech and Drama is very close by, and the other institutions listed below are all between 30 and 45 minutes away.
We rent our home, so this would be a sublet. The landlady has given her permission, and will be on hand for any problems.
