London, England, United Kingdom
Two bedroom, nicely-furnished recently-modernized flat on the first floor (2nd floor in the US convention for numbering) of a modern purpose-built apartment block. The flat is suitable for two adults sharing, or a couple and a small child. A walkthrough can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CX_cI310kBY&feature=youtu.be Previous tenants were faculty on sabbatical leave at Imperial College, Kings College, UCL and the London School of Economics. The flat is very light, bright, airy, with a south facing balcony. Very clean, quiet and safe. The balcony is large enough for a child to play in, and there is also an enclosed quad which is laid to lawn with locked gates accessible only to the residents. There is also an underground car park for the residents. The flat comes with a fully-equipped kitchen and a new bathroom. Wood and tiled floors. The flat is gas central heated with hot water supplied from a very efficient new boiler. It is very warm and easy to heat, with double-glazed windows throughout. The flat is located in Putney which is one of London's nicest and most family-friendly suburbs. (search with your preferred map software for "Lockyer House London SW15 1EE"). Information on Putney and the neighborhood can be found here: (http://www.wandsworth.gov.uk/putney). The Putney Society has produced several audio walking guides with quite interesting historic references. They can be found here: http://www.wandsworth.gov.uk/info/200430/putney/909/putney_walks Many lovely pubs, restaurants, cafes, boutiques and several supermarkets (e.g. Waitrose, Sainsburys and Marks & Spencer) are located in Putney High Street which is 2-3 minutes walk. There are also several parks and a river-side path for walking, biking or jogging all the way to Richmond and Kew Gardens. Here's a link to a community website which lists some of the local events: http://www.putneysw15.com/. The flat is one minute's walk to the River Thames and is the starting location of the historic Oxford vs. Cambridge Boat Race (http://www.theboatrace.org). The Putney Embankment where generations of Putney children have fed the ducks is another minute's walk. Putney is in London Transport's Zone 2. The nearest underground station is Putney Bridge (District Line) which is a 4 minutes walk over the lovely Putney Bridge with spectacular views of the historic Putney Embankment, Bishops Park and the 15th Century St Mary's Church (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Mary%27s_Church,_Putney). Central London and the West End (e.g. South Kensington for Imperial College and many of the major museums) is only 15 mins away by tube. King's College and the LSE are about 20 minutes by tube. Several buses stop on Putney Bridge which is 2 minutes walk from the flat. From there you can take a number of buses to Central London e.g. the number 14 bus which goes through Fulham, South Kensington, Knightsbridge, Hyde Park Corner, Piccadilly and Bloomsbury. A map of the buses that go through Putney can be found here: www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/gettingaround/maps/buses/pdf/putney-2213.pdf.
