About this listing
Contemporary apartment in Victorian mansion in gated community. Huge balcony with fabulous views. Super king size beds, 2 bathrooms, large lounge. Easy access to Central London/City via trains from Sydenham Hill and Overground from Forest Hill. There is on-street free parking. We are close to fashionable East Dulwich, with shops, bars, restaurants and cinema.
The apartment has a very large sitting room with dark wood flooring. Within this room, there is a dining area with rosewood table and brown leather chairs. The well-equipped kitchen is adjacent, separated by a Japenese walnut shoji screen. The huge wrap-around balcony is accessible from both the kitchen and the sitting room. Both bedrooms have super king-size beds for maximum comfort, with cotton bed linen and good quality duvets. There are 2 bathrooms and a utility room. Bisque, designer radiators provide heating from the central heating system.
The apartment is on the 2nd floor of an imposing Victorian mansion. Access is via electrically operated gates.
Guests will have access to all parts of the apartment, including the large balcony with splendid views to the south (perfect for morning coffee, an al fresco lunch or evening barbeque).
Interaction with guests
We are offering the whole apartment, normally we like to meet and greet. Otherwise, our Airbnb co-host, Isabelle, will liaise with you concerning arrival times and "meet and greet" and handing over keys. We (my wife Moira and myself) are available on mobiles and email to answer any queries. We have a house in Northern France which we have let for 9 years and we are therefore used to liaising with guests.
Other things to note
We are close to the exciting centres of East Dulwich, Forest Hill and Dulwich Village, for nearby bars, restaurants, cinemas and shops.
Our apartment is one of seven in a distinctive and very characterful Victorian mansion. We would expect our guests to not make excessive noise and to respect the privacy of our co-owners in the other flats.
We hope our guests treat our home as we treat Airbnb places that we have stayed in, namely leave it like we found it (except for the obvious need for laundering and some cleaning).

I am a senior guy, married to Moira. We share our time between London and Northern France. I enjoy good food and wine and exploring new countries. We are open, sociable people and appreciate the good things in life and love meeting new people.
We have a large house in France which we also let through Airbnb. We enjoy spending time there because, being in the country with fields, trees and nature all around you, it is the complete contrast to London.
