Wake up to the sounds of Big Ben!
This is a very spacious, centrally located flat (5 mins from Kennington tube ) with a balcony with views to the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, the Shard and St Paul's.
It is a large 2 bedroom flat arranged over 2 floors (9th and 10th), with large open plan kitchen next to dining room and living room with full height glass sliding doors opening on to balcony.
Bathroom with bath and shower with separate WC. Kitchen has induction hob, fridge freezer, washing machine. There is room for storage for bicycles. Wireless Internet and good sound system.
The whole flat is for rent, with two bedrooms, both with double beds available (one a futon), and there is a very comfortable sofa bed (single) in the living room.
The flat is within walking distance of the Thames River, The Southbank (the Hayward, National Theatre, Royal Festival Hall), and an equally short journey to the West End (Covent Garden etc), and the East End (Shoreditch, Hoxton etc). We are also close to the fantastic Borough market, and a short ride away from Spitalfields Market, and the City, Brick Lane and London Bridge. As well as Brixton in the South.
It is in a very friendly quiet block of flats, with a concierge, so security is never an issue.
There are a handful of very nice local pubs which do good food and beers, and evenings on the balcony watching the sun set over the houses of Parliament is pretty hard to beat!
The block is a Modernist tower block, and has starred in several films of London (Wonderland, Utopia London etc) and was recently part of a Documomo tour, so if you are interested in post war British architecture, this is a very good way to get to know it!
Transport - Kennington Tube on the Northern Line is 5 minutes walk, buses are equally close, and there is a Barclays's bike-hire stand right outside the block, so if you fancy a quick tour of the city by bicycle, it couldn't be easier.
Christmas and new year alert - The view of the fireworks from the balcony is second to none!!
