A 'penthouse' flat with roof terrace - London home swap

Beautiful top floor 1 bed flat in Clapham's conservation area. Transport zone 2. Newly refurbished with modern appliances including a tv and audio centre on a ultra fast wifi broadband platform. A room sized south facing sunny terrace looks out across the Victorian roofscape of Clapham. The living room and kitchen, set well back from a quiet road, opens out to the private terrace, a big sky above and well maintained, communal gardens below. A double bedroom which catches the morning light has its peaceful ambience enhanced by authentic Japanese decor. Finally a gorgeous bathroom inspired by the beautiful tile work of Istanbul. My home is a treasured oasis that can provide a great basis for your London experience

About the location

The flat, in a very quiet area, adjoins the fashionable artisan shops and restaurants of 'Abbeville village' and is a short walk from the buzz of Clapham High Street - all wall to wall bars, restaurants and the excellent picture house cinema. Clapham is in the London borough of Lambeth which includes the up and coming diverse community of Brixton and the sophisticated cultural hub of the riverside Southbank which connects to Shakespeare's Globe, the National Theatre, and globally important art galleries such as the Tate and Tate Modern. Fantastic transport links to these and other places include Clapham Junction which offers fast trains to places such as Brighton - 50 minutes - and the countryside of Sussex and Hampshire. Great for buses including the 137 that takes you to Battersea Park, Chelsea's Sloane Square, Knightsbridge, Hyde Park and Oxford Street. Ten minute walk to the tube of Clapham Common or a short bus to Brixton tube on the Victoria line - seat guaranteed!

Allard Gardens is in a conservation area. Won an 'honourable mention' in 'The Times' community architecture awards, flanked either side by Georgian houses protected by English Heritage.
