The "Santorini" guest room, top floor of modern 3 bed terraced house in peaceful Crouch End street
Our guest room at the top of the house (3F) for plenty of privacy. Queen bed with luxury memory foam mattress topper. Cosy lamps, large windows with mixed green/building view and warm heating. Decorated in clean blue and white tones suggestive of Greek island vacations. Wardrobe for own personal storage and can leave your things over weekends (will install lock on wardrobe if required). Linen changed weekly, or as you need. Use of washer and tumble dryer anytime. Toilet right next door to room & shared large bathroom with bath and shower (shared with our live in housekeeper) 1 floor down. Wifi throughout house.
Very warm and cosy home. We are an expat professional couple - Australian and British women - both working full time and studying part time, and one of us travels up to 30% of the year. We're very houseproud and very clean. Our home is decorated with art from our 19 years living in Asia. Use of well stocked kitchen welcomed. You'd also be welcome to join us for meals as mutually convenient, as our housekeeper is a very good cook. BBQ in outdoor garden also.
MUST LIKE DOGS! We have two small, older dogs - a Westie and a Schnauzer - that are cared for by us and our live in housekeeper. You're welcome to interact with them as you wish. They love people and attention and are very well trained (I'm also a volunteer dog behaviour trainer helping prepare rescue dogs for rehoming).
Room rental includes contribution to bills.
We do have friends stay on weekends sometimes hence the Mon-Fri let.
W7 bus is 2 mins walk from home and runs constantly to Finsbury Park station in 12-15 mins, stopping by Crouch Hill overground. Overground and tube trains from here including long distance express trains. Also bike lanes to the city.
Crouch End is a gem of a village. Lots of surrounding parks, much loved by local dogs. Quiet and local feel as no tube, yet 2 mins to a regular bus to trains. Great pub on the corner of the street. We're 5 mins walk to centre of the village for shops (Waitrose, Coop, M&S, Tesco, Gail's Bakery) and excellent local cafes and restaurants. Very safe area. Street parking available.
