Bright central London flat

2 bedroom flat on top floor of 3 storey Victorian house on quiet tree-lined residential road in Kentish Town. This was George Orwell's home in the 1930s.
Welcome to my home. After I moved in 17 years ago I renovated the whole flat and created an open plan kitchen/living room This is a wonderful space to cook, dine and relax in, with TV/DVD and WiFi. The living area overlooks my garden and being south facing is often bathed in sunlight. With its high ceilings and generous windows the flat is always bright whatever the weather.
The flat is best suited for a single person or couple. There are 2 bedrooms: one with a kingsize bed and the other with a single bed. Good quality bedding and towels are provided. Good shower, well-equipped kitchen and washing machine. Cleaning included in price.
The local high street is a few minutes away and has a good choice of shops, cafes and delicatessens. Then Camden Town with its famous market and nightlife is a 10 min walk away.
Transport links are excellent: Kentish Town tube (Northern Line), 6 bus routes into the heart of London and 2 overland trains: one that gets you to Gatwick and Luton airports and the other that crosses London from east to west (very handy if you need to get to the National Archives in Kew). The British Library is 10 mins by bus or a 25 min walk, with King's Cross St Pancras/Eurostar next door.
Close to some of the best green spaces in London: Hampstead Heath, Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.
There's also a fantastic public sports centre with 2 swimming pools and gym just a 5 min walk away.

'I can highly recommend Sarah and her flat. She is my next-door neighbour, and her home is perfect for a visiting academic--quiet, spacious, good places to write, gorgeous garden. She is an extremely reliable and considerate host. '
