Spacious light 3 bedroom apartment duplex in the heart of vibrant Covent Garden - London home swap
Situated over two floors this bright spatious 3 bedroom apartment offers surprisingly peaceful accommodation for up to 2 adults and 2 children. The property has been newly refurbished with all modern conveniences. There is a toilet with bath/shower on both floors, making it ideal family accommodation. Enter via beautiful period doors from the street into a black and white tiled entrance, shared with just one other apartment. Entry to our home is via our own door on 1st floor; here we leave coats and shoes before ascending to 2nd floor where you will find a fabulous large open plan living space with large L shape sofa and TV area, stylish fitted kitchen and spacious dining area for 6-8 people. On this floor there is also a bathroom and our teenage sonâ€™s bedroom, with comfortable single bed, electronic drum kit, stereo, desk and PlayStation. Climb the stairs to the 3rd floor where you will find the main bedroom with super king size bed, shower room and childrenâ€™s bedroom with cabin bed, desk, toys and fish tank (easy to care for fish need feeding once a day). All windows are double glazed, in some cases triple glazed, so you can shut the world out and enjoy peace and quiet. The apartment is filled with light with huge windows and as such gets very warm in the hot summer months. Windows can be opened and blinds drawn on such days. Itâ€™s very cosy and comfortable throughout winter. Step out into Covent Garden and walk to the Royal Opera House in 3 minutes, River Thames in 10 minutes, or explore the local Piazza, famous for street performers and markets, as well as designer, high-street and vintage fashion on the doorstep. There are endless very good places to dine out for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We can give our personal recommendations for eating out, site seeing and attractions worth a visit. Covent Garden is a bustling and vibrant town in the centre of London with pedestrianised streets and squares and many attractions a stone`s throw and many others walking distance. You simply canâ€™t get any more central!
The apartment is situated on the 2nd and 3rd floor, with no lift, so expect stairs! Once on the 2nd floor however, the open plan living, dining and kitchen lead off a bedroom and bathroom/toilet, so this room is suitable for someone who can`t manage to go up and down stairs repeatedly (such as someone with mobility issues). Expect beautiful light comfortable living in the heart of the best part of London.
We have digital TV, DVD (with varied DVD collection), portable speaker & Wifi and the PlayStation enables Netflix.
There is an indoor and heated outdoor swimming pool across the road.
