These are flats are in Balcombe St., a quiet street in central London near Baker St. and Regents Park. The houses were built about 1820 as single family houses for wealthy merchants who might have had one or two servants. They were converted into apartments by us in 1960 with one flat on each floor. No. 33 Balcombe is the largest house on the street and has a large one bedroom flat on each floor ranging from 630 (top floor) to 540 square ft, while 31 Balcombe has studios which are 370 square feet each. The neighbourhood is residential and safe, I and my family (4 children) grew up here without serious incident! Shops are nearby including a grocery open 7 days a week until 10.30pm. As of November 2005 all the flats in Balcombe St will be non-smoking.
From August 2005 we now have a free wireless broadband internet connection for tenants at Balcombe St with their own computers.
