Additional information

The flat is located in a council estate well taken care of. We are a few owners in the block. A little family friendly park makes the location great for kids. We chose to leave here because it is so
central yet not too busy so we can relax. The city centre is reachable in less than 20min. My husband works near Russell Square and the commute is perfect. Convenient stores around the flat and
Waitrose and Morrisons are 10 minutes walking away on Holloway road. We do not own a car but we are entitled to a visitor car parking space permit. There are 2 visitor parking spaces at the bottom of the flat. We are on the top floor (28 easy steps), no lift. Neighbours kind and not noisy. Non smoking home. Recycling bins (food and plastic/paper/glass) available.
