Un sueño

  • 5 of 5

El apartamento es precioso, con unas vistas de la naturaleza que se agradece después de una gran ciudad y amaneceres con cisnes nadando en la presa cercana.

Pertenece a un residencial nuevo de alto standing, en una zona menos desarrollada pero muy cerca de una estación de tren en la zona 3 que te deja en 15 minutos en ST Pancras (la estación mas bonita de Londres) y de ahí te puedes mover a todo Londres. También hay autobuses con los que puedes acceder rápidamente a supermercados.

La vivienda esta bien decorada y con muchísima luz y mención especial es imprescindible hacer a la limpieza y estado de conservación. Todo nuevo, con grandes calidades y limpieza excepcional. Edificio seguro, con conserje y vecinos agradables.

Hemos pasado una semana magnífica y aunque sólo hemos utilizado el piso para dormir y los desayunos de la mañana, ha sido ideal.

Muchas gracias Mayra por contestar todas mis preguntas y abrirnos tu maravilloso apartamento.

Car: not necessary

We are situated on the edge of the one the few urban Sites of Special Scientific Interesy, a reservoir and bird sanctuary with more than 250 bird species.

The Brent Reservoir (popularly called the Welsh Harp) is a reservoir between Hendon and Wembley Park in London. The reservoir takes its informal name from a public house called The Welsh Harp, which stood nearby until the early 1970s. It is a 68.6 hectare biological Site of Special Scientific Interest, the only one in Barnet and Brent.

The reservoir is fed by the Silk Stream and the River Brent, and its outflow is the River Brent. It is said to contain enough water to fill 3 million baths, and in 1994 when the reservoir was drained, more than 6,700 lb (3,000 kg) of fish were captured, 95% of which were roach. However, fishing is prohibited.

The reservoir has a sailing centre, home to Welsh Harp Sailing Club, Wembley Sailing Club, the Sea Cadets, and the University of London Sailing club. In 1960, it also hosted the Women's European Rowing Championships.

The reservoir is an important site for breeding waterbirds such as great crested grebe, gadwall, shoveler, common pochard, tufted duck and common tern. At one stage, the reservoir was second only to Rutland Water for the most breeding pairs of great crested grebe in the UK. Other breeding birds include eight species of warbler.

The reservoir has always enjoyed a reputation for rare birds. As well as those documented above, it attracted two black-winged stilts in 1918; the first great white egret in London in 1997; the blue-winged teal in 1996; the lesser scaup in 2003; and penduline tits in 1996 and 1997. Remarkably for an inland site, it also attracts rare warblers, notably the aquatic warbler in 1955; Hume's warbler in 2004; and yellow-browed warblers in 1994 and 2003; however, most significant was an Iberian chiffchaff on 3 June 1972, the first recorded in the UK.

The current list of birds recorded at the reservoir numbers 251 species. The most recent species added to the list was the Caspian gull in 2015.

A list of the mammals is documented in the Birds of Brent Reservoir. Few mammals are seen, the grey squirrel the most obvious; the red fox is common but mostly nocturnal. Muntjac have been present since the beginning of the 21st century but are shy, their presence noted mainly by tracks, although there are occasionally sightings during the day.
