LUXURY 2 BEDROOM FLAT IN LEAFY DULWICH

Property type apartment

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in South Bank and Southwark

------------------------IN SUMMARY----------------------------

Beautifully presented flat with 2 large double rooms, huge living room with cable TV, fast wifi throughout. Landscaped garden and free, private parking. Own front door and totally private.

Dulwich is a lovely and safe, family friendly leafy area with parks, pubs and restaurants nearby. Very short walk to the train station which takes you to Central London in less than 15 mins. Quicker than the tube!!

---------------------THE BEDROOMS--------------------------

Two large (both 13 foot sq) double bedrooms.

The Master bedroom is larger and has fitted wardrobes and an iPod dock digital radio. Very comfortable super king sized bed with memory foam mattress.

The garden room is slightly smaller but benefits from a view over a landscaped garden and has a 42' cable TV. New King sized bed with memory foam mattress.

Good quality furnishings in both rooms. Very quiet and comfortable. WIFI access in both bedrooms. Both have lockable doors.

Good quality sheets and towels provided.

---------------THE REST OF THE FLAT------------------

18ft by 14ft living room with 42' cable TV, Apple TV and access to my large iTunes collection! There is also good hifi system with great speakers and a massive, comfy leather sofa ideal for chilling after a day's work or sightseeing.

Large kitchen, with double range oven, modern fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher and an excellent fresh bean coffee machine and plenty of crockery and cutlery and cooking equipment if you want to cook-in.

There is also a washing machine and tumble dryer (and a modest amount of detergent). I make a modest charge of £3 (honour system) for each wash to cover the costs.

Clean and tidy bathroom with a good quality power shower and tub.

--------------THE AREA AND WHAT'S NEARBY?---------------

Dulwich is perhaps less well known than other areas of London, but it really is a gem. It is in Zone 3 with easy access to London, but has the benefits of a feeling of space, greenery and calm - a great pleasure after spending time in busy central London. My road is a private one with a good, safe community spirit. No busy roads or traffic noise to disturb you. There are 3 great parks nearby (30 mins pleasant walk, or 5 min drive), fantastic dining and lots of gastro pubs nearby, one of the best ones being a 3 minute walk away.

Crystal Palace is a good night out, and only 15 min walk away. Brixton is also nearby, also a great night out with a superb live music venue if that suits.

Dulwich Village itself is around a mile away with a great community British style pub, stunning park and the Dulwich Picture Gallery - a beautiful gallery with superb standing artwork and visiting exhibitions that have recently included Warhol and Velasquez. There are no shortage of restaurants to meet every taste and budget nearby.

There are two very big supermarkets (Sainsburys and Tescos) walking distance away. There are also very good convenience stores 2 mins from the front door.

------------------TRANSPORT ROUTES------------------------

The flat has excellent access to central London. Sydenham Hill takes you to Victoria in 15 minutes. Gipsy Hill takes you to Victoria or London Bridge in 25 minutes. It is also very easy to connect to the tube at Brixton, Balham or Elephant and Castle. The No 3 bus takes you straight to the heart of the west end (Oxford St) and there is a bus stop very nearby.

For ease you will receive Oyster cards in your room which are easy for you to put money on and maximise the cost effectiveness of your travels in London.

The easiest airport for my home is Gatwick (about 1 hour), Heathrow and Stansted are slightly longer journeys depending on your preferred transport routes (about 90m mins)

About Matt Johnston

I am a self employed financial advisor and have lived in London for about 20 years. I am 43 years young (!)...I love traveling and meeting people from foreign lands. In London, I play tennis for a local club, I am a keen road cyclist and also volunteer for a charity helping people with housing difficulties and homelessness.

Matt Johnston purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Matt Johnston chose South Bank and Southwark

The flat is very spacious, airy and light. Both bedrooms have king-sized beds with memory foam mattresses and are super comfortable. The flat has excellent high speed broadband, cable TV and Apple TV. There is also a very pleasant landscaped garden.

Dulwich is a beautiful pocket of tranquility compared to hectic central London. Having said that it is very easy to get into town.

My place is very popular with families with children. It is a very safe neighbourhood. There is also an excellent kitchen with everything you would need if you wanted to cook at home and has a washing machine, dryer and dishwasher too.

What makes this apartment unique

I was very attracted to the feeling of spaciousness, the lovely green, leafy environment nearby. The living room is very big and has a massive front window letting lots of light in. It is a very private road though with very few passersby so safe, calm, quiet and pleasant with London on the doorstep!

Eine Oase in London

  • 5 out of 5
Die Beschreibung der Wohnung und die Fotos sind zutreffend und korrekt. Alles war sauber, gepflegt und einladend. Die Informationen waren alle präzise.Der Vermieter war bei der Vorbereitung der Reise und während des Aufenthalts sehr hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Es ist eine ruhige Lage.

Man ist mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln erstaunlich schnell im Zentrum. Der Bus "3" ab Gipsy Hill war unser Favorit. Wenn wir es eilig hatten, stiegen wir in Brixten (Underground) Station um in die Victoria Line. Hatten wir mehr Muße, fuhren wir mit dem Bus ins Zentrum (z.B. Oxford Circus).

Eine Anregung, eine "Petitesse": Statt nur eines (großen) Handtuchs pro Person wären zwei angemessener.

Wir würden die Wohnung auf alle Fälle weiterempfehlen!

Matt's Fab Flat

Matt's Fab Flat
  • 5 out of 5
This ground-floor flat in Dulwich is a very comfortable place to come home to after spending the day in London. It's quite spacious, with a large living/dining room, two large bedrooms, and very nice kitchen. We tend to eat lunch out and then come back to the flat to cook dinner, and this was easy to do in Matt's well-appointed kitchen. Our family of 4, including 2 teenage boys, had plenty of room. We drove down from Yorkshire and parked the car (free on-street parking outside the flat), taking the train into London every day. Both the Gypsy Hill and Sydenham Hill stations are an easy walk and offer frequent train service so you can be in London within 20 minutes if you catch the trains just right! Our host Matt made us feel very welcome and offered many ideas of things to do in the area. He's very easy to contact via email and responds to all questions right away. For an affordable, convenient and comfortable place to stay while visiting London, I am very happy to recommend this apartment.

Feels like home

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment really feels like your own home. Very comfortable beds, a spacious and sunny sitting room and a kitchen that has everything you need - we cooked a main meal one evening and there was no need to improvise as all the equipment that we could need was provided. There's even a small garden, but the weather wasn't kind enough to allow us to use it.
There are three good restaurants within 3 minutes walk. A bus direct to Oxford Street was also 3 minutes walk and the overground station into Victoria was 6 minutes walk.
The location is so quiet that after a busy day in central London you feel as though you've come home to a country village.
I would stay here again without hesitation.

Excellent stay in East Dulwich

  • 5 out of 5
We recently stayed in the flat in East Dulwich. The location was perfect for sightseeing in London. The flat was just as described. The bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. It has a lovely back garden and the street is very quiet. The owner Matt was great at answering any questions and getting back to us quickly. The property was clean and well maintained. The train links to London Victoria are very convenient from Sydenham Hill. About every 15 minutes or so. The easiest way to get to the station is to turn left on the main road out of Baird Gardens and then take the next left and cut straight through the apartments. You will cross a road and go under an arch of another set of flats and walk to the back, down the stairs and you are at the station. Saves you walking up the hill. The Paxton Pub has a lovely beer garden. If you walk up the hill past the station at Gypsy Hill to Crystal Palace, there is a great Cuban restaurant called Casa Cuba. Fun shops up there as well and the view back towards London on a clear day is amazing!!!! I would definitely recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for the positive comments, and I am glad you had a successful stay. A couple of minor points for those considering the property. It is not actually in East Dulwich despite the title, it is in West Dulwich. Also, there is private parking, no cost parking on a private road, and I have had a lot of guests who have driven to my homeland from Europe. So...if you are traveling by car, my place is actually a very good option for London...

Awesome place!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the owner's home for three nights when on a European tour including London, Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels. This is by far the best choice of all the other places we've stayed at. This place easily tops any other 3.5 - 4* hotels.

The house is close to the railway station (about 10 minutes pleasant walk) and once your get into central London (about 15 minutes train ride) you can easily get anywhere from there.

The rooms are exactly as shown on the pictures. No surprises there. They are clean and well maintained. A bit tricky to use the bathroom as water tends to splash out. It's a good idea to leave a towel on the floor to help keep it dry.

My favourite is the backyard. We hung our laundry out there to dry. Very nice! The backyard is quiet and an oasis to relax in after a long day of touring the city. My son loved the Wi-Fi and my husband the TV (world cup was on when we were there.) As for my dad he loved being able to cook some hot noodle or rice to compliment our take-out dinner.

Best of all is the host. Matt was super considerate and helpful. Being able to interact with him and get some tips before our tour were very helpful. He surely left us with a very good impression of British people. Thank you very much!

Great space and amenities in London

  • 5 out of 5
We had the pleasure of staying in this Dulwich apartment for four nights and it was fantastic. Lots of space (living room bedrooms, AND kitchen!), especially for London. Fully equipped kitchen with a huge stove/oven, and coffee maker. It was a pleasure to cook a few meals there and not have to dine out every night. Matt made sure we had everything we needed prior to and during our stay. The area around the apartment is beautiful and it's a gorgeous stroll to a close rail/metro station. The garden out back is lovely - a great place for morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening after a full day of sight seeing. We also found a great Vietnamese restaurant up the hill! Book this apartment and make some great London memories!

The place is perfect for families looking for a safe neighbourhood.

There are excellent going out places nearby in Crystal Palace, Brixton and East Dulwich - remember - most Londoners don't generally go out in central London!!!
