London, Hampstead Heath, Highgate home swap

The apartment is architect designed and bathed in light and sunshine, particularly in the living/dining room, with views across London and two balconies. The kitchen has all conveniences.There is a shower room and a bathroom with shower over. We are on the third floor with no lift so the apartment is not suitable, unfortunately, for lesser abled people, but the rewards for the climb are the views, the light and peace and quiet. Despite being so near the city, we wake up to birdsong, not traffic! Parking is not impossible but not easy either. There are parking restrictions in the area. We would recommend not having a car, especially as public transport is so good.

About the location

Our apartment overlooks and has direct access to the east side of Hampstead Heath, with great walking, tennis courts, a stately home (Kenwood) and swimming. There are four restaurants within a five-minute walk, as well as a small supermarket, chemist and newsagent, and two buses - to the West End or St Pancras and the City. Kentish Town tube station is a short bus ride or 10 minute walk away. At Kentish Town there are more restaurants and several supermarkets, a post office, banks, etc. Gospel Oak mainline station is a short walk across the Heath. From there we can reach Richmond, Kew Gardens, Olympia and the Olympic City shopping malls at Stratford, all within a half-hour train journey. We can also walk uphill through a lovely park to Highgate Village - more shops and restaurants - and down to Kentish Town for supermarkets. We can be in the West End in less than half an hour - great shopping, theatre, cinemas, etc.
