Swiss Cottage: An energetic area in an enviable location

Swiss Cottage: An energetic area in an enviable locationBackground

For people looking for flats to rent in London, Swiss Cottage may prove to be the ideal area to find a property to let, thanks to its enviable position and the energy of the area.

Located close to Camden and Regents Park, Swiss Cottage has experienced a period of regeneration recently, which has seen it come out of the slight bad patch the area was going through and appear on the other side revitalised.

Despite being situated between several parts of Hampstead and St John's Wood, the location is not dwarfed by these other fashionable districts of London and has retained its own character and identity.

Indeed, people from the borough are likely to note how proud they are of having a Swiss Cottage address.

Property

Whether an individual is looking for a plush apartment or something more affordable, there is sure to be something for everyone in Swiss Cottage.

Off the main streets of the area pockets of gorgeous housing are located - and even though some of these may technically fall under other London boroughs, they benefit from the unmistakable jaunty charm that Swiss Cottage creates, allowing residents to feel they are in a different place altogether.

The mansions that can be found in Primrose Hill may be the place to head to for those looking for an upmarket flat to rent. Many of these have been subdivided into stunning maisonettes and apartments, while some of the whole houses are among the most desirable places to live in the capital.

There are adequate flats above the shops in Swiss Cottage itself for individuals with a tighter budget to stick to. Old council flats have been made available, with some plush apartments to be found in the large tower blocks.

Most of the flats in the area that come with a lower price are technically part of West Hampstead and do not fall under the Swiss Cottage jurisdiction.

People looking for flats to rent in Swiss Cottage can expect to pay an average of £223 per-week for a studio or £966 a month, while a two-bed property will typically set individuals back £500 a week, or £2167 a month.

For those searching for a three-bedroom establishment, prices start from £480 for a week's rent, with an average place of accommodation costing £800 a week.

Transport

Commuters living in the borough of Swiss Cottage may find that they are in one of the most desirable areas from which they can travel into the city centre.

Located on the Jubilee Tube line, with a short walk to Finchley Road also making the Metropolitan line readily accessible, individuals are able to reach the heart of London within minutes.

For those who often travel further afield, Euston station is close by, as are the over ground stations of Marylebone and West Hampstead.

Alternatively, there are bus routes running through the borough, while those with a car can travel from their Swiss Cottage location to Wimbledon in under 40 minutes.

Amenities

With the centre of London on their doorstep many residents may decide to head into town to get their shopping fix, while Tube service provides locals with a convenient way to access all the different parts of the capital - from Theatre Land to Wembley.

However, people deciding to stick closer to home could decide to visit one of the many bars or bistros in the borough, including some new places further up Finchley Road.

Residents may also find they can benefit from the recently renovated library and leisure centre, while a new shopping centre with an array of stores and a cinema complex should ensure that locals never have to travel far to find entertainment.
