London NW1. Beautiful home & garden, August 15, 2019 to December 31, 2019. Quiet setting. Fully inclusive. Gracious living for one or two.

This house is charming, comfortable, quiet and conveniently located. It is fully and tastefully furnished. The front door nestles behind a small private garden in a pretty crescent at the edge of a well-designed and nicely maintained complex. It is my home which I prepare by clearing closets and cupboards of everything except what will be useful to a visitor: dinnerware, linens for bed, bath and kitchen, cooking accessories, small and large appliances, garden furniture. It is not cluttered but it does contain everything one needs for gracious living.
We are within walking distance of British Library, King's Cross Station , St. Pancras International Station Euro-Star, Camden Town Tube and Camden Road overground, DLR connection, Crick Center and the many shopping and entertainment facilities of the new Kings Cross Redevelopment area. Our area is also served by a rich network of buses, pleasant walking and cycle paths.
The entire house has been recently redecorated. Wood flooring predominates with ceramic tiles in bathroom and kitchen and Persian carpets in the reception areas.
We have private gardens front and back. The front garden has its own gate, trellises and path. The back garden is secluded, leafy and furnished with fine wrought iron furniture, vines, window boxes, a shed and lots of blossom.
Camden Town provides excellent super-markets, many cafes and restaurants. Our house is an easy walk away from the bustle of high street and the famous canal-side market while mercifully far enough away to make our immediate neighborhood truly serene. We are near steps to the canal towpath. Going East, thanks to recent development behind the Kings' Cross Boat Basin, one is within easy walk of interesting and well-planned walking, shopping, dining and entertainment experiences. Going west, people love to walk or cycle along the towpath to Regent's Park and on even to Little Venice.
Modern eat-in kitchen has dishwasher, clothes washer, microwave, various small appliances and a polished table and chairs for meals . The bedroom has an excellent queen bed and small desk. The study has a substantial desk and small bed. The walls are decorated with fine prints and drawings, mainly of the 18th Century.
All heating, plumbing and appliances are new or in up to date condition.
Perfect for a couple or single person. It is always praised for being particularly attractive, convenient and peaceful.
Rent INCLUDES a cleaning lady every second week, and absolutely all fees, taxes and utilities except long distance telephone charges.

We are academics with a studio in New York City and a little house in London. Both are conveniently located and quiet. Both are near library research facilities, public transportation, and beautiful places to walk: Riverside Park in New York City and Regent's Canal Towpath to Regents' Park in London. Both are kept in immaculate condition.

Enjoyed staying in this flat in summer 2015. Location was quiet, a restful oasis in the middle of bustling Camden. Clean, cozy, just as described by DeeDee. Hope we'll be able to stay there again in future. Excellent Sally Hadden 4/1/2017 5:47:00 PM
