Apt 208 The Magdalen
About the home
Brand new, contemporary two bedroom apartment (sleeps six, maximum 4 adults), located in Earlsfield, South West London, including communal roof terrace with stunning views of London. Situated on a lovely tree-lined Victorian road, conveniently located close to Earlsfield train station (12 minutes to central London and one stop to Wimbledon Station). Earlsfield has a range of good bars, restaurants, coffee shops and supermarkets.
Ideally situated for the Wimbledon Championships. For a small taxi fare you can get to the tennis in less than 10 mins. However, last year after the tennis, on a lovely summers evening we decided to walk back to Earlsfield via Wimbledon Park and up Penwith Rd which took us 30 mins. There is also a taxi office next door to the apartment block.
The very pretty Wandsworth Common is a short walk away offering great outdoor space, a couple of playgrounds and tennis courts. It also borders Bellevue Rd with its eclectic mix of shops as well as the highly regarded Chez Bruce restaurant.

The South East England / London region
The boroughs south of the river, including Wandsworth, are renowned for their green space. Close to the apartment you will find King George's Park. Laid out over 55 acres, the park boasts one of London's finest lakes in terms of sustainable water quality and providing a natural habitat for indigenous wildlife. The park is mainly open grassland and is popular in the summer for kicking a ball around, picnics, tennis or cycling. For the kids there is a children's playground. In the other direction towards Tooting you will find the smaller Garratt Park which also has a children's playground.
There are 3 leisure centres in the area including Tooting Leisure Centre which has a public swimming pool. Tooting Lido boasts the largest outdoor swimming pool in Europe.
Earlsfield library is located immediately next to the apartment.
The South West London / Earlsfield area
We love this family friendly area with it's close proximity to Wandsworth Common, King George's Park and the many shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs. Bordering Wandsworth Common is Bellevue Rd with it's eclectic range of shops and the highly regarded Chez Bruce restaurant.
A mere four minutes by train from Earlsfield Station, Wimbledon is home to excellent shopping, two theatres, a cinema complex and a large number of buzzing bars, pubs, restaurants and bistros.

"We arrived by car to be greeted very efficiently by Stella whom we'd 'phoned when we thought we were about 10 minutes away. The traffic dictated that 10 minutes turned into 30 minutes but Stella was still there on the pavement with the fob to open the electric gates to the underground car park. What a bonus that is. You can access the lift to the apartment from the car park. How convenient and weatherproof is that! As a car is pretty useless in London, it's a comfort not to have to leave it parked on the street for days.
We realised, from the description, that the apartment was reasonably modern but it looked almost brand new with underfloor heating and modern bathrooms and a well-fitted kitchen including an induction hob.
Despite being across the road from a pub and being over a Sainsbury's local, the double glazing kept out all but the loudest police/ambulance sirens and we didn't hear a peep from the residents either alongside or above or below.
Brilliant to be able to pop down to Sainsbury's for milk or a newspaper or a bottle of wine.
Again, from a soundproofing viewpoint, you wouldn't know you were next to a railway station but how handy it is for getting into London from Earlsfield - Waterloo is less than 15 minutes and trains are frequent."
