Large room plus sharing well equiped flat in sought after building on 21st floor of Trellick Tower.
Trellick Tower is one of the most unusual & impressive places to live - imagine a New York skyscraper apartment in London but without other tall buildings in the way to spoil the view. Views from here are the best you'll find on this side of town. Trellick Tower is a grade 2 listed building designed by Erno Goldfinger located in Notting Hill, London W10 near Portobello Market. Trellick Tower offers modern high rise living as it should be.
Own room with tv in 2 bedroomed flat with double bed, built-in cupboards & furniture. The room size is 12.5' by 11.5' with a double built-in wardrobe & two large windows overlooking the Grand Union Canal. The panoramic view stretches to Hampstead on the horizon. You'll not be restricted to the room only but will have use all of the flat (except my room).
Living room with hi-fi, widescreen tv, BT Vision Freeview recorder, surround sound DVD player, laser disc player, large (growing) collection of DVD movies & music CDs.
Luxurious bathroom with bath & shower.
Spacious modern kitchen with fan oven, ceramic hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, tumbledryer, eating area & lots of gadgets.
The kitchen door & living room door lead out onto a long south facing balcony with spectacular views of London.
Storage space for bicycles available inside flat at front door entrance.
24 hour security & concierge.
Central heating & hot water.
BT Broadband (wi-fi).
The second & only other bedroom is the one I'm using.
I'm the only flatmate & also the lease holder, a freelance graphic designer. The good news is that you'll have the place to yourself most of the time, as I'll be there only for about a month of the year. The neighbours are all friendly & helpful. Two of my friends in the building are available in case of problems when I'm not there.
Trellick Tower is on Golborne Road with its lively coffee shops & cafés, delicatessens, antique shops, fishmonger, butchers, library, doctors, dentists, lawyers, the Fat Badger pub & Stella McCartney's building, to name a few. For essentials there is a Costcutter supermarket on the ground floor of the tower. The popular Earl of Portobello pub is across the road, & Westway Studios is 5 minutes walk away, so there's no need to even take a coat to have a drink (or two). The famous RELLICK boutique is also across the road from Trellick Tower. Golborne Road cuts into Portobello Road with even more attractions: pubs, restaurants, shops, antiques, fruit & veg stalls, the Electric Cinema, Tesco Disco. The Portobello & Golborne Markets are great places to bargain hunt, & bump into friends. All in all you don't have to go far to socialise or shop safely.
