3 bedroom family friendly, quiet house in London with private, off street parking for one or two cars, in silent mews street, 2 terraces, barbecue, Wi-Fi, well connected to the sites and attractions. Great holiday place for a family with a car!
** NOTE : some of the reviews are from a time when there wasn't a real internet connection, just a BT cloud connection in the house. But now the house has a dedicated, fast Wi-Fi connection, so you will have no problems using the internet. It is also much more complete in terms of furnishings **
I am offering a stunning, new mews house in Crouch End including private parking for one or two cars. Great for a family coming by car to the UK.
The house is an end-terrace in a group of five three-storey units set in a peaceful, traffic-free courtyard (no street, no cars and sirens, no noise!). There are two bedrooms with double beds, one bedroom with a single bed (+extra mattress), two sofa beds, three bathrooms, two terraces and one courtyard. The property was built in 2012, and all appliances (microwave, oven, dishwasher, washer/dryer) are from 2012. The house is modern and energy efficient.
It is located in Crouch End off of Harvey Road, within close proximity to the shops and restaurants of Crouch End High Street to the west and a five-minute walk to Harvey Road Station to the east, with direct, fast and frequent rail connections to the City, Finsbury Park, Highbury & Islington, Old Street, Moorgate, etc. The 41 bus (Archway to Tottenham Hale) stops just around the corner. The 91 bus direct to Trafalgar Square is also in close proximity. From Finsbury Park you can transfer to the Piccadilly and Victoria Lines; the London Overground is accessible via Crouch Hill station.
Sheets, towels, and kitchen supplies provided, Utilities are included.
The TV picks up local channels (no Sky or satellite TV). Broadband is included.
The house is alarmed with a video doorbell.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions (Italian, French, German spoken), and thanks for looking!
Please no smoking in the house. We expect renters to respect the neighbors and take good care of our property.
There is no phone line. If you need to borrow a UK mobile phone from us please ask.
The heating can be adjusted using the thermostat located just outside the kitchen
The unit is both a washer and a dryer together.
Appliances (dishwasher, microwave, gas hob) are fairly self-explanatory, but if you need to consult the user manuals these are in a folder in the cabinets above the gas hob.
The cheapest (but slowest) option is to walk to the 91 bus that leaves from in front of the YMCA on Tottenham Lane (go left at the end of Harvey Road) and goes to Trafalgar Square via King’s Cross and Euston.
The fastest way into the center of town is to walk 5 min to the Hornsey train station, then change at Finsbury Park to the underground. Take a southbound train from Hornsey (some trains go directly into the city of London, Old Street and Moorgate). For other destinations take any southbound train and change to the London Underground at Finsbury Park (Piccadilly or Victoria line). Southbound trains come every 5 minutes or so. Travelers can use Oyster cards at Hornsey station, which is in zone 3.
