This very new one bedroom mezzanine flat was completed in October 2011.
Whilst designed and built in a contemporary and functional style, the exposed brickwork of an original wall confers a warm and homely feeling to this unique place.
Apart from the secluded, well looked after shared patio garden, this flat is totally self contained, and is accessed by its own independent entrance.
Generous insulation and modern central heating make this space warm in winter and cool in summer.
The sleeping area is on a mezzanine floor. The remaining area has a wonderfully high ceiling reaching over 5 metres at its highest point and is well lit by large skylights.
The shower room is fully tiled, spacious and bright.
The sleek galley-style kitchen has a 4 m long worktop, double sink, double oven, microwave oven, gas hob, fridge, freezer and plenty of cupboard space available. It is well equipped with cutlery, crockery and quality utensils.
This flat can sleep up to four people. There are two single beds in the sleeping area which can either be used separately or put together to form a 1,4 x 2 m double bed. The double bed takes up the full width of the mezzanine, so access will be from one end of the bed. The sofa in the living area converts very easily into a comfortable double bed.
This smart mezzanine flat is located amidst a mix of private and local authority houses.
The area is very close to the centre of London and well served with bus routes to the main attractions. The closest bus stop only 200 m away. Marylebone underground and railway station can be reached with a 5 min walk. Baker Street and Edgware Road underground stations are 10 min walk away. All these stations are in pricing zone 1.
Should you be too tired to cook, you will never be short of options for places to eat in the West End or in the nearby St John’s Wood High Street.
The flat is also very close to Regents Canal, where it is nice to stroll, jog or cycle all the way to Little Venice and Paddington one way or Camden and beyond the other way. You can relax in the lovely open spaces of wonderful Regents Park again only 5 min away and enjoy the views of the boating lake, the rose garden, London Zoo, all surrounded by magnificent John Nash designed terraces.
Also 5 to 10 mins away are Church Street market with the famous Alfie’s antique store, Madame Tussaud’s waxwork museum and Lord’s cricket ground.
