Top 3 things you love about your home
The location/area: 3 minutes walk to the tube and excellent transport connections. Local amenities with bars, restaurants and shops. The property is a stone's throw from Waterlow Park which leads to Hampstead Heath, It is also very close to Highgate Village.
The interior: Being a top floor dual aspect flat the property has plenty of natural light with views across London. A lot of care and thought has been put into the refurbishment, with high spec finishes. There are a number of bespoke design features.
The community: not only do I get on well with the neighbours but there are also the shop and Cafe owners who all know each other and are always happy to chat or lend a hand. This also feeds into the sense of security.
Three things we love about the area...
- There are too many to mention here, it should be a top 10! I love walking through Waterlow Park (the best park in London) to Highgate Village and on to Hampstead Heath. This corner of London is very picturesque.
- St Johns pub on Junction Road with its superb food- especially Sunday Roasts! The Japanese restaurant next door with its chicken Karaage.
- The community- the shopkeepers and cafe workers who are always happy to chat, the markets in Archway square with its street food and vintage vinyl.
