Our lovely English house is to the north of London. It is on a new private housing estate in a quiet residential area composed of typically English houses, in the grounds of an old historical building which has now been converted into luxury apartments.
It is 1 minute walk from New Southgate’ rail station, from which, in 20 minutes you are in the heart of London and 5 minutes walk from Arnos grove underground station, which is on the Picadilly line and from here the tube train takes 20 minutes to reach Picadilly. You can also take direct trains to heathrow airport from here. Local buses also stop at the top of the road, (100meters) so it is ideal for visiting the sights, business and shopping trips and then a relaxing show or dinner before returning to peace and quiet, away from the traffic of London.
There are shops, restaurants and all necessities within 5 minutes walk.
From the back of the house, over the small garden, you can see the famous ‘Alexander Palace’.
The house is composed of a BRAND NEW fully equipped kitchen and living/dining area on the ground floor, this leads out through French windows to the small landscaped garden where there are dining chairs and table for al-fresco dining in the summer months. New wooden floor throughout the ground floor.
Also on the ground floor is a small bedroom with en-suite bathroom, with shower unit and marble tiles.
Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, one with king size bed and the other with queen size bed, there are fitted cupboards in both bedrooms. The bathroom has a walk in shower, toilet and sink. There is carpeting throughout on the first floor. It is a lovely little "castle", cozy and warm in the winter, sunny and restful in the summer.
Feel at home, living like the locals while you shop in the local shops, Co-op is just around the corner and the Tesco flagstore is 5 minutes away by car. During your stay, don't miss the famous London sights,for example Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, The London Eye, for great views of the city and not only... shopping in Oxford Street, regent Street and of course Harrods in Knightsbridge (especially at Christmas time to see the wonderful Christmas lights). For the kids there are plenty of theme parks too.
