Lovely, large, light 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment on a leafy street in the charming Crouch End area of London

This is a very pleasant, large, light, comfortable, well-furnished and fully-equipped, 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom flat (apartment). It's filled with natural light through lots of windows, some in a wrap-around, corner position with great, open views. Al our previous tenants over the years have loved it. of The house's location is in a green area with lots of trees and gardens but is only a minute's walk from the very attractive, characterful and highly-regarded "village" area of London, Crouch End, with its wonderful amenities and self-contained "villagey" feeling. The University of London colleges are 30-45 minutes away by plentiful public transport.

It is a fully and well-furnished and well-equipped apartment on a leafy street, quiet but close to all amenities, and which enjoys some extensive and panoramic views from the first floor (called in North America, the second floor). Included also is the use of a ground-floor, garden patio area with table, seating and BBQ.

Central London with all its academic institutions are within easy reach by public transport, normally within 30-45 minutes. Many of our previous tenants have even bicycled to central London colleges.

We're delighted to say that all of our former, academic tenants have been very happy with the apartment, with staying here and with the area.

The apartment is situated on the first floor (the 2nd fl. in N. America) of a large, 19th century, end-terrace, corner house in the characterful and charming Crouch End/Highgate area of north London. It overlooks two gardens on one side and a third on the other and with wonderful views along the trees of leafy Wolseley Road and, in the distance, iconic Alexandra Palace on the other. All our previous tenants have been delighted with the apartment.

There are two, good size fully furnished double bedrooms, supplied with linen & towels, one with a double bed, the other with 2 single beds, (but which could be placed together). Between the bedrooms is an attractive, porcelain-tiled bathroom/shower-room with basin; the second bathroom has a large shower area with adjoining sink, vanity unit & storage. The living-room sofa has a pull-out bed for guests. There is a TV, Bluetooth stereo/radio/CD unit & DVD unit. There is broadband available, free from downstairs, or for a stronger signal, independently on modest subscription. Except the WC and the kitchen, the apartment is attractively carpeted throughout, and we've found that the latter is also excellent heat and sound insulation.

The flat has a large living & dining area overlooking gardens, and includes two sofas, glass coffee table, polished cherry-wood dining table, bookcases, small Sony TV and (slightly old-fashioned) radio/DVD deck. There is a fully-equipped kitchen, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher. Gas central heating. throughout.

I have been living in the apartment offered by Jonathan and Sue for over 2 years and I couldn't be happier, it has become my home. Unfortunately, I will be leaving London soon, anyone would be lucky to live over there as Jonathan and Sue are always available to solve any issue the apartment might have.

Jonathan and Sue were exceptionally responsive and efficient in communicating with us about renting their flat. Excellent Cynthia M 2/17/2019 8:27:00 AM
