Why Kids Love it

Ideal for families with 1 or 2 children under 10, there are plenty of toys and books in English and French in the living room and children’s bedroom. The local park has a landscaped playground and café. It is easy to reach central London by public transport for a day visiting museums or walking along the South Bank.

Accommodation Details

This 2-bedroom, 60 sqm apartment is in a Victorian house and includes a master bedroom with kingsize bed and children’s bedroom with cot bed suitable for young babies up to age 4-5 with a bed guard. There is also a floor mattress for a second child to use in the master bedroom or living room. The master bathroom includes a shower and tub while the children’s bedroom has an ensuite shower room. There is also a living room and kitchen. The apartment has a private lawned section of garden with mini trampoline and flower beds.

Style Notes

Modern Victorian. Bright and light, the home combines the elegance of a Victorian period property with a contemporary interior. The house dates back to the late 19th century. The front garden is lovingly maintained by artistic neighbours with landscape design expertise. Set in the heart of the Brockley conservation area, it is beautifully light, warm and quiet thanks to the double-glazed sash windows. We love the cozy lounge, the garden views from the master bedroom and the great set up for a stay with young children.

I am a Londoner and have lived in Brockley since discovering it when I moved to SE London to study for my MA at Trinity Laban. I bought my flat in 2010 and live in it with my son who is now 4. We love going to Paris in the holidays so it makes good sense to let our flat be enjoyed by other families whilst we are away enjoying travels too.
