This is a really special home. First floor flat, close to central London, just off a lively high street, moments away from shops, restaurants and several underground/overground stations, and yet quiet, peaceful and surrounded by trees. We've lived in London for ten years and can't bring ourselves to leave this spot! It is an Italian building constructed in the early 1900s, recently renovated to a high standard. The flat is bright, with large sash windows on both sides that bring in lots of natural light. There are green spaces on both sides of the building. The large open-plan living room, dining room and kitchen has three windows facing out to a quiet street and trees. The kitchen has hardwood floors and is fully equipped, with dishwasher, washing machine/dryer, etc. We love cooking and you'll have all the equipment you need. The dining room table is made of reclaimed teak, and folds out to double the size. A desk next to a window in the living room serves as an office space. The bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with bathtub and shower, large built-in wardrobes, and blackout blinds. It faces out to a garden and nature reserve. There is a second full bathroom right off the hallway, with a shower. Kilburn High Road overground station is about 4 minutes away on foot, with trains that run directly to Euston in seven minutes. This puts you on the doorstep of UCL, SOAS, Birkbeck, LSE, Kings, etc. Kilburn Park underground station is about 5 minutes away on foot, which puts you on the Bakerloo line. Our local park, Paddington Recreation Ground, has a gym, track, tennis courts, playing fields, trees and gardens. Hampstead Heath, Regent's Park and Primrose Hill are all nearby.
