VENDOR'S COMMENTS I bought this flat due to the easy commute into central London. It also had the great bonus of being a larger size for the complex and an additional parking space which was really useful for when guests came over. I am now selling as I have moved to north London after finding my wife during the time after I moved in. The flat was great to live at and the close by Tesco made things very easy.
