Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
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. For families of young children there is a fantastic playzone called It's a Kids Thing directly opposite the apartment.

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 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.
