My den: it’s my sanctuary

What your guests will love about your home
Croydon has lots to offer mainly excellent travel connections to The City of London. Fast train from East Croydon will get you into London Victoria within 20minutes. To drive about an hour in London traffic. Also superb links to Gatwick Airport within half hour on one train, Outside East Croydon station is a London black taxi rank, and it is around £8 to my place. I'm 8minute walk from South Croydon train station and Buses and tram stops all within 15 minutes walking distance. Croydon has two large shopping centres The Whitgift Centre and Centrale . We have lots of parks Lloyds and Croham Hurst a stone throw away. A train or bus ride to Crystal Palace Park with the sports arena and Olympic pool. Croydon has ample hotels Swimming pools and Libraries. There is also Surrey Street market for fruit veg salad and all kinds of food and things. The amount of restaurants along the High Street in South Croydon can only mean one thing ? That you are simply spoilt for choice. It's perfect here just far enough away for peace and quiet and close enough to be easily accessed There is a good size private balcony with beautiful sunrises and sunsets with sits four if you fancy tea outside. Roadside parking is not a problem here.
What your guests will love about your neighborhood

My home is a one double/bedroom could be triple quite easily, all areas are very spacious
The bedroom and lounge room are both over 20square metres each leaving ample space to have another king size double bed down in the corner of the lounge room without it consuming you. See pictures. This is a quiet second floor flat with no elevator! So you have to walk two flights of stairs with your luggage. But it's worth it once you're up here with the open view. 15 apartments in block so it's not huge.

Lawn to the front which is now all fenced off this is not showing on Google map and neighbourhood.
There is also a back lawn for sitting in sun with tall conifer trees.
I have a four metre north facing private balcony looking towards London and The Shard on the horizon, to see the sunrises and sunsets with a glass of wine , here seats four comfortably.
Central London is less than 10 miles away. Central London is half hour or less on the train from local station of South Croydon A ten minute walk from my home to the train station.
Also Brighton Beach in Sussex is 40/50 minutes on Train.
I live in a very quiet road with lots of green space around if you google map it you will see ample park land and woodland for walking and for quiet space time. There is no problem parking a car on roadside outside my home . There is main key electric entry intercom system and the building .
Also a good hotels in the area to swim or play golf at the SELSDON Park Hotel Croydon Park Hotel. takes me 30/40 mins to walk There is a central library shopping mall centre's and ample restaurant s and bars on the main road which is a 12 / 25 minute walk away. Also there are lots of good golf courses around the area. You are also within 20 minutes beautiful countryside places like Chelsham Westerham Oxted Woldingham. &Kent on the doorstep almost

Additional information
As you can from the pictures there is a possibility for a comfortable king size low bed in the lounge area to enable sleeping for 4 people if required. I also have two very large comfy sofas and single duvets for the extra child/ren perhaps? The bed can be put away if for only two people ... It's up to you. But you will be relaxed here
