What the agent says

Welcome to a splendid 2 bedroom apartment with a spacious communal garden for sale in Avenue Road Swiss Cottage, NW8.

Recently refurbished throughout, the apartment includes a splendid large living area, newly refurbished kitchen, two well-proportioned bedrooms, and bathroom with Jacuzzi. You have also your own space with the private balcony facing the splendid open spaces of Swiss Cottage.

The flat sits on the upper floor of this modern building. At the back, residents will enjoy the green and relaxing communal garden.

Friendly faces, top of the range food and family fun-filled activities aplenty, Swiss Cottage has a community spirit to make developers quake in their boots.

The area’s name derives from its distinctive landmark, The Swiss Cottage, originally built in the 1840s as a coaching inn on the outskirts of London. Back in time, fields covered Swiss Cottage and served traditional English bitters to working men coming in and out of London, as well as housing a dairy selling milk and cheese.

Today, the surviving Ye Olde Swiss Cottage pub stands as a Samuel Smith’s establishment surrounded by lanes of traffic.

A lot of the housing here is comprised of rentals and many of the old Victorian houses have been converted into flats. For those interested in buying you’ll need to have lots of cash as the prices do get run up by people looking to turn homes into apartments.

The main commercial avenue here, Finchley Road, has a ton of restaurants and a handful of bars. Shopping here is passable but most residents head elsewhere.

While the options may not leap out to the casual passer-by, in fact, the stretch of Finchley Road near Swiss Cottage station has a range of useful independent shops. There are two sports shops competing to provide cheap quality sportswear to adults and school children alike, while Swiss Cottage Grocers has an array of fruit and veg (ranging from the local to the Ottolenghi-exotic), temptingly displayed alongside dried fruit, nuts and a selection of whole foods.

Finally, the Swiss Cottage Farmers’ Market attracts food stalls serving everything from Thai to Portuguese, French and Moroccan fare. Here you’ fined an excellent array of fresh bread, olives, and also cheeses available from the artisan stalls.
