Flats we fancy

6 Jul

We have a beautiful building versus beautiful location dilemma.

This is gorgeous:

But it’s also ridiculously expensive, just for the garden unit. If you want a floor higher it’s an extra £200 a week. You also have to walk a bit to get to the supermarket, tube stop and restaurants.

On the other hand, there is this ugly 60’s era building:

It is right on the main street of Notting Hill, the grocery store is literally next door, and there’s a McDonalds downstairs in case I start craving a bit of America. The unit is an 11th floor duplex with a balcony and glorious views.

At least almost every flat in London has an in-unit washer/dryer. That solves one problem. (And it’s one appliance! It washes AND dries! Am I not supposed to be amused by this?)
