Loft Living in Finsbury Park

Through an organization called Doctor House (which helps arrange housing for doctors visiting London), I found a charming home-stay loft for my stay in London.  I am in the area called Finesbury Park.  I have big skylights which look out a small reservoir where sailors brave the cold.  (It is 2 degrees and people are out sailing!)  It takes about 30 minutes to get to the hospital by short bus ride (or walk) followed by the tube for 5 stops.

The loft is quite tiny, but this is London.  There is an almost ladder-steep flight of stair to get up to the loft and a second ladder to get the level where I have my bed.

Overall it's very cosy and charming with lovely and helpful proprietors.

Looking down from upper loft on the rest of the apartment.

Dining area with a sink and stairs down on the left.

Looking down the stairs to the door.  Good thing I packed light as these are not suitable for hauling luggage up!
