Full description

A stunning one double-bedroomed, raised ground floor flat in the heart of Clapton. In excellent condition throughout with original Victorian features, and direct access to a private garden. With Hackney Downs on the doorstep, and connections conveniently nearby, plus all the culture and life of an exciting part of East London. A large Victorian bay window fills the spacious living room and recently fitted kitchen with natural light. The property also consists of a double bedroom and bathroom, with garden access from the back. The owner says What do you love most about your home? High ceilings make the flat incredibly light year round, especially with the bay window, and the wooden floors give it a classic appeal. We tweaked the layout by installing a new kitchen and it feels like it′s opened the whole flat up and made it feel spacious, sociable and welcoming. (We also repainted using mostly Farrow & Ball paints, which has given a slightly chalky feel to the walls). Having direct access to the garden is also a plus for a raised ground floor flat, and we spend loads of time gardening and growing veggies, mostly because we′re keen cooks. It′s a lovely quiet road, thanks to the cycle-only route going to the park, and it′s also very friendly and community-oriented - we even have a WhatsApp group for the street! Why are you moving? We′re reluctantly leaving the area owing to new jobs south of the river, and starting to think about having a family. What do you love about the area? Having Hackney Downs park on the doorstep, is perfect for summer picnics, games and parties, and the perfect encouragement to keep running regularly! (1 lap = 1 mile almost exactly). Great variety of local shops, many of them now taking the local pound, Colu, which gives you a 10% discount at all participating local shops. Newly developed Hackney Downs Studios offers everything from fine dining to plastic-free shops and pottery classes. Restaurants like all of Chatsworth Road, SoDo, My Neighbours The Dumplings, Yardsale, mean there′s always a good option for eating out or local takeaway. The Pembury Tavern is my favourite local pub, and it′s now run by the brewery named after the roundabout it sits on, Five Points, just at the bottom of the hill. There′s also the huge garden of the Clapton Hart, a new local with very friendly staff, The Mermaid, plus local breweries abound, and the ′Hackney Beer Mile′ by Hackney Central station offers a wealth of choices and options for nights out. Organic farmers market on Chatsworth Road. Great local music scene with venues like EartH, Oslo, Paper Dress Vintage, Shacklewell Arms, Servant Jazz Quarters Local independent cinemas like The Castle, started as a Kickstarter campaign, and is now one of the best kept secrets in East London! There′s also the beautiful Rio in Dalston, and the Hackney Picturehouse, so you′re fully covered for cinema. Walking distance to London Fields / Broadway Market, Dalston, Columbia Road Flower Market & Stoke Newington Also all of the natural beauty of Hackney Marshes, a 5 minute cycle away, meaning wild swimming and the closest to country walking London has to offer, right on your doorstep. By bike you′re at Barbican in 20 minutes, and Southbank in less than half an hour. Transport links - buses, plus three overground stations and access to the East London Line via Dalston Junction
