Near Tower Bridge - Entire Floor (70m2/750sq. ft.) in Central London Townhouse

THE ACCOMMODATION
The apartment is perfect for a couple or two friends/family members or a single person. (Please note that it is not suitable for children under 8 but an older child would be welcome). You will have the entire 70m2/750 sq. ft top floor (2nd floor, American 3rd) of the house to yourselves, consisting of two bedrooms, a large open plan kitchen/dining/living room and bathroom. It is warm, light and spacious and has been completely refurbished whilst retaining the original period features. All bills are included in the rent (electricity, gas, council tax, water, wifi, TV licence, fortnightly clean). Bed linen and towels are provided.
There are two double bedrooms which interconnect with folding doors and can be opened up to make one very large room if desired. The bedrooms can be made up with superking size double beds or twin beds as required. All the beds have pocket-sprung mattresses which should give you a fantastic night's sleep.
The rear bedroom has a lovely sunny south facing balcony, which is perfect for taking breakfast on or catching the last rays of sun with an early evening drink in summer.
The second bedroom could be used as a study if preferred. I can remove a bed and provide a desk/table and chairs.
The bathroom is equipped with a bath and shower. The heated towel rail means that the bathroom is always cosy and that your towels are warm and dry.
The large open-plan kitchen/dining/living room is well-equipped with dishwasher, fridge, gas/electric cooker, microwave oven, large dining table and chairs as well as a stylish and comfy sofa and 32 inch television.
The flat has its own central-heating system which you can switch on or off as needed. Each radiator has a thermostat meaning that you can control the temperature of every room individually.
In addition to the above, the apartment has a hair dryer, toaster, kettle, iron and ironing board as well as all the usual pots and pans, crockery, utensils, cutlery etc.
You’ll have plenty of space for storing your belongings as there are two wardrobes and several good-sized cupboards and shelves.
There is a washing machine in the utility room off the half landing. There is no dryer but there are clothes airers for hanging your washing on in the flat.
I live on the lower floors and also let out a studio on the first floor so although you are totally independent (we just share the front door and stairs), I’m on hand if any problems arise and am happy to help with any questions about the local area and London in general.
THE AREA
Bermondsey is a great place to live and work. Although it is very central, it is not just for tourists. The house is a 15 minute walk from the River Thames and Tower Bridge and 5 minutes from Bermondsey Street and its coffee shops, restaurants and galleries. The area is renowned for its Saturday food markets and Friday morning antiques market. Borough Market, Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre are also within walking distance.
There are plenty of convenience stores and supermarkets close by which are open 7/7. The park across the road has a circular running track for anyone wanting to stay fit!
GETTING AROUND
Buses stop on the street close to the house every few minutes:
The Number 1 takes you to the West End and its theatres and shops in 20 - 30 minutes. It also runs every 30 minutes throughout the night.
The 78 goes to super-trendy Shoreditch and London's main business quarter, the City, via Tower Bridge (10 minutes) and Liverpool Street station (20 minutes).
Bermondsey station is on the Jubilee line and is a 10 minute walk from the house.

About Me
My background is in Fine Art and I trained at Goldsmith’s College, University of London which I followed up with a Masters and Post-Diploma in Nimes and Marseille, France. I held various residencies and teaching positions in art institutions before changing track to manage large-scale corporate training programmes in the UK, Europe and Middle-East. I’m currently working on my own projects and I’m lucky to have a large and beautiful old house in Central London where I’m based. My family spend most of their time abroad so I’m letting out the top floor apartment on Sabbatical Homes. Although I'm new to Sabbatical Homes, I'm an Airbnb superhost and you can read my reviews on my profile.
