Comments from the Owner.
I have lived in my home for over twenty years, it was close to the Tube and took me about 30mins to get to work in the City. There also lots of buses going over most of the Thames bridges. Trinity restaurant is a 10 minute bus ride away at Clapham Common. It's a favourite for birthdays and other occasions. Brixton Market is 10 minutes away and it gets better and better, great pizza and burgers. The Ritzy cinema at the end of the road and Clapham picture house a 10 min bus ride. Many other great restaurants in Brixton and Clapham Common. The house is in a quiet cul-de-sac with resident only parking so we can always get a space. We have the house exactly as we want it. We considered a mansard roof and extension of the ground floor into some of the garden as the neighbours have done, but we didn't need the extra space. The house itself fully double glazed, has a good size garden with a patio and lawn. We do most of our shopping at Tesco's just a five-minute walk. We have a small conservatory, all double glazed with a door that opens into the garden. We have breakfast in the conservatory most mornings as it has a radiator to heated up in the mornings. But by about 11 the sun has come round and shines into the conservatory. Speaking of the sun, there are panels which heat the hot water for the house so we don't pay for hot water all summer. Also on the roof are electric solar panels which generate electricity and generate an income of about £30 a quarter. A short bus ride away is Brockwell Park where we often walk green and leafy with ponds and we like to keep track of the Swans that live on the bigger pond. Each year they make a nest lay about eight eggs and then one can watch the cygnets growing into adult Swans.
I put in a ventilation system that provides fresh air throughout the house. It has a heat exchanger that takes the warm air and the cold air from outside, warms the cold air and then is fed into each room. Warm damp air is sucked from the oven hood and the shower stall and goes up to the heat exchanger to warm the incoming air, this means the house is well ventilated but the ventilation doesn't cool the house. We are moving to Norwich as my sister moved there three months ago to be near her son and grandchildren.
