Not only is it flexible but also we think this flat has one of the best locations in Central London!
A fantastic location in the quiet beating heart of the South Bank yet is only a short stroll from the excitement of Covent Garden, the West End & the Olympic sites. South Bank attractions include the beautifully remodelled Royal Festival Hall, The National Theatre & the iconic Oxo Tower (all moments away). The penthouse restuarant at the Oxo Tower offers one of the best views of London.
Shakespeare's Globe Theatre (to see or not to see it, that is the question!), the Tate Gallery of Modern Art (Miro a must!) and the staggering London Eye (dwarfing Big Ben!) are all less than a 10 minute walk from the property.
These world class attractions are knitted together by the inspiring river walkway (pedestrianized) which threads the length of the South Bank to London Bridge, the Tower of London & beyond.
The location is perfect for the tourists and children. All the major tourist attractions are a mere caber toss (a Scottish pastime!) from the apartment, which means that you can save on expensive travel cards during your stay.
Whilst you can genuinely walk to all the major sites on foot, public transport is right outside. A red bus picks up right outside the apartment stopping at attractions between Covent Garden & London Bridge, as do passing black taxis.
Waterloo station (main Train line & Tube line) is only 5 minutes walk away.
Paris is possible as an exciting daytrip on Eurostar in 2 hrs!
The apartment enjoys a fabulous location - so you will never be short of truly world class entertainment - restaurants, bars, theatres, cinemas, clubs.
Broadwall is arranged over 2 floors & has all amenities. It comprises of 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the downstairs one is en suite with shower and a bath. Bathroom and shower room furniture is complimented with chrome taps and shower fittings, towel rail, wall-to-wall mirrors and siena tiled floors. There is a sofa bed.
Hallways and living/dining & bedrooms feature beautiful cherry wood flooring.
The kitchen has quality designer units featuring curved breakfast bar. Integrated appliances include washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, kettle, microwave, toaster stainless steel hob with build in oven and extractor hood.
One of the great benefits of this property is that despite its fabulous central location it enjoys a marvellous secure & peaceful outside deck, leading onto a fantastic urban garden.
THIS MAKES THE PROPERTY ALMOST UNIQUE!
A timber decked roof garden with plants, seating and lighting proves very popular & a huge luxury in such a central location.
Security video entry phone has been fitted to the apartment. Remote controlled access to car park.
The apartment has allocated covered parking space within the ground floor car park which may be available upon request.
The top and bottom floors of this duplex can be rented together, as listed, or separately. Each with there own private entrance.
Please contact the owner for more information.
If it is not available, don't panic, I have another property minutes away ideal for 2.
