Apartment | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 7
The house is an old house which has retained most of these features, it was built according to the records around 1907. I do not believe that it was rebuilt after the war.
It is a very large property for a London home, and easily accommodates six people. I have limited the numbers to 6 people to reduce the obvious wear ad tear on the property, but will use my discretion depending on the circumstances.
The property is arranged over two floors and is very well maintained. Each bedroom can easily accommodate a double or where applicable a king size bed.
On the first floor there is the living room, with ample seating for 6plus, then the kitchen, and to the rear of the house thee is the dining room, equipped with large dining table , sofa and music
From the dining room area, there is a flight of stairs leading to the garden, where there are outside garden furniture to house 6 people and a bar b Q grill ( no charcoal will be provided)
All the appliances at the property are in excellent conditioned, including a smeg 6 burner cooker, frost free fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker . The kichen will be stocked with spices for cooking and dish washing tablets, and washing up liquids and sponges but no washing power for clothing.
There is wi-fi access, Neflix for the TV buff among you, and a qualify hi-fi player
Cleaning services will be provided on a weekly basis where there will be a change of linen and the house will be cleaned if required as part of the service.
If you wanted to see what the last quest have said about this property please check go to Housetrip and search 1010775. Unfortunately the listing here is new and no one has had the time to review it yet, so for a peace of mind you can see the reviews. I ma saying this since you will pay less here, due to more expensive fees on their site.

The South East England region
Nestled on the Borders with the County of Kent, yet within the Zone (2) of the London Transport system, (this property is located within 12 km of the center of London and 8 km from Canary Wharf). This is a location which gives access to both worlds. The ease of access to the buss and the hustle of London, and the quieter suburban feel of Kent.
Located South of the River Thames, and within Walking distance of Blackheath and Greenwich Parks, this area of London is rich in History.
Neighboring Greenwich is possibly the most visited locations on the Tourist map in London, development which has risen in recent years with the building of the O2 Center and of course the housing of some of the key Olympic events.
The proximity to the River (as it meanders towards the Estuary towards the East) and the garden of England ( as Kent was once called), has historically impacted on the lives of those who still life in the Region today.
Only very recently ( since the development of Canary Wharf in the early 1980's), has many of the disused Warehouses of the once bustling Ports, been converted to loft style apartments to satisfy the taste and demands of the bankers into the new financial city that is Canary Wharf ( only 12 mins away from Lewisham station by the DLR).
The life of the Thames as a working rivers is still evident by the passage of the large cruise ships that now birth at neighbouring Greenwich.
Kent is still very much a breadbasket for farming activities, and the expanse of green protected fields are visible for miles if you do have the time to drive into this part of town.
With neighbouring Greenwich no doubt as a pivotal point, the area is awashed with many a historical site to visit, from the Cathedral at Canterbury; the Caves of Chislehurst, the Castles of Eltham and further afield Leeds.
The meandering nature of the London roads, which were never redesigned as such despite the great fires, has resulted in a real North South and East West divide, similar to that of Parish or many other larger metropolis, except that you get the feeling that that here in London this distinction is more pronounced.
This has meant that visitors have come to unearth some of the historical interest of this part of the city of London, where the Great Admiral Nelson once choose to have his naval quarters, now a maritime museum.
Lewisham itself sits on the confluence of two rivers, both of which are now being reopened as apart of the redevelopment of the town.
Lewisham today serves as a key gateway with respect to the transport connections to both London, and the rest of the South East and South West.
This advantageous location is a compelling point for the visitor as a point of destination for a short stay. Enabling the easy access to the center of the city, at an affordable price while being able to explore location areas of significant interest at the same time.
This is particularly the case for visitors travelling to London from Europe by car, since they have the benefit of affordable parking and do not need to drive across the city if they had booked a house on then Western side of the city.
South East London
The strength of the area its location. To the North you are adjacent to the Blackheath and Greenwich Parks, with the added advantage from a transport perspective that you are only in the 2nd zone. As a comparative, Richmond is in zone 5/6.
The property is also well located for local shops, groceries, banks and small local restaurants, in a rapidly developing location.
You do not need to drive if staying at the property and parking facilities are available at the cost of £5.60 per day or £28 per week, as an alternative to flying.
.Once at the property, then you have the flexibility of the frequent trains/DLR or buses to take you to and from the city.
Take a walk through Greenwich Park and the river boat to the Center of London and enjoy the views on the River for a day out, returning by the trains or even the DLR.
Eltham Castle is only a short bus ride away, and the gardens are a joy to behold especially during the summer.
The South East area of London, borders on the borough of Kent and is a very leafy area, with open fields, cycle chain and forest walks.
The property is situated is located in a London suburb with arguably the best transport links to the Center of the City and also the new financial district of Canary Wharf.
To give an idea of the proximity to the city, if you search on your Google Map for Rianzo Piano's Shard of Glass structure, located next to the London Bridge station, you will find that it is approximately only 10 kilometers from the house.
The property is 6 mins walk from Lewisham station which is adequately served by trains every 3-4 mins to the center of the city, taking 8 mins to London Bridge.
Horniman Museum located in Crystal Palace is also a bus ride away and is definitely something that will interest both children and parents alike.
Its a very cosmopolitan town, and the property is well positioned for easy access to neighbouring Blackheath or even Greenwich where there are an assortment of very nice restaurants.
Alternatively you can take a short walk (3/4 mins) towards Lee High Road, and there is an increasing number of options of quick meals. The house is also located within easy access of the location shopping centre and the super markets.
Bistros, Fitness Facilities etc
The area is in a continuous process of development with the recent completion of a fitness and leisure complex which will be serviced by pavement cafes etc, which will be available during the summer.
If you prefer the open air, then you can take a short tun or cycle to the Heath or Greenwich Park where there are huge open spaces and undulating landscapes where you can exercise in the open, place tennis or soccer, or simply have a picnic with the family while, depending on your vantage point, enjoying a view of the city of London.
