We're moving to Barons Court - W14

After only a 4 day search, Carly has come up with goods!

This Saturday we say goodbye to our temporary abode at Willett's place at Putney, and move to our very own one bedroom apartment in a converted terrace house at Barons Court (see a map of the street by clicking here: http://tinyurl.com/db2e8). It's a fantastic renovated apartment on the 3rd/top floor of the building, with a new-ish kitchen and bathroom, modern furniture & fittings, timber floors (great for spilling drinks at parties!) and the front room (lounge/dining) has two huge windows which overlook the tree-lined street which is a beautiful & traditional-looking west London address. It'll be great in summer as we'll be able to leave the windows open and it faces south so it will get all of the winter sun when that comes around..

If you check on the map the Queens Tennis Club is just around the corner and its also within walking & jogging distance of many of London's touristy sights!! The building backs onto the tube line, however after two inspections to test it out we are happy that the double glazing on the windows makes sure that you can't hear the trains rolling by at all from way up on the 3rd floor - and at least they stop running at midnight!

The place is halfway between Barons Court station (Piccadilly & District tube lines), and West Kensington station (District only), and our street comes off of North End Road which is where the local supermarket and other shops are.. There's also buses running along North End Road to the surrounding suburbs where our friends live, and its a 10-12 minute walk to Fulham Broadway and the bars and pubs around there. The Agent told us that there is a pub in the street around the corner which we could see from the front window, so we'll have to give that a try and decide if it will become our local..

We'll be in there on Saturday night, and will move the rest of our stuff over during this long-weekend - we'd rather be travelling somewhere exciting for the weekend, however we are so excited about finally going into our own place, with our own phone line and permanent address etc!

I'll post again on the weekend with photos, once we have the keys and are moved in..

Exciting times ahead!!!!

It's good to see that you have found a place to live, it sounds like a greatly positioned place (on the Airport Tube Line and close to tourist attractions).

I can't wait to come over and see you all!

Ciao
