Three things we love about the area
1. E8 needs little introduction to those in the know - remarkable people and places nearby, amazing food and artisan stores, creative and fun, lots of greenery and open spaces too.
2. All the wonders of Broadway Market, Regents Canal, London Fields with the Dalston hive surround this haven of a home
3. The Gayhurst School and attending community
Why are you selling? After many happy years there I moved to Stockholm and converted the property to a Buy-to-let mortgage. Now I need to sell it to purchase a house for my family in Sweden
What's the area like? Its a really wonderful area - Big park - London Fields, numerous interesting shops, bars, restaurants and outdoor amenities like the Hackney Lido and tennis courts. There are lots of families intermingled with entrepreneurs which keeps a creative buzz to a warm community spirit
What is parking like? It is possible to get allocated private residents off-road parking in the private road the house entrance is on - otherwise there is general parking on side streets - easier for residents or visitors with handy visitor vouchers from the resident
How busy is the road, is it quiet at night? The entrance of the house is on a quite residents only cut-de-sac while the rear is set back off Richmond Road so noise is no issue.
I'm currently working from home, how does that work in this property? With a quiet outdoor space available and set over 3 floors there is distance between rooms that enables multiple people to work from home easily
What's the boiler like? It was replaced Nov 2019, the radiators replaced Mar 2020 and the heat tank was replaced in early 2021 so the entire heating system has been overhauled.
Accommodation comprises entrance via the private patio garden, with significant storage and stairs rising to the first floor landing with two inbuilt storage cupboards, leading into the bright and spacious reception room with ample space for relaxing and entertaining. The separate kitchen/diner comprises a modern range of matching wall and base units with work surfaces incorporating inset sink unit, inbuilt hob with overhead extractor, electric oven, and further space for appliances. To the second floor, there are two well proportioned bedrooms, with small balcony area to the master, plus a family bathroom with white suite and adjacent separate WC.
The property is wonderfully located within easy access of Hackney Downs, Hackney Central, Dalston and London Fields stations as well as regular bus routes, all providing excellent links into the City and West End, and to the surrounding area. There are a wealth of fashionable shops, bars, cafes and restaurants within a short distance, perfectly balanced with the beautiful open spaces of nearby London Fields, and slightly further afield, Victoria Park, each within easy reach offering a peaceful retreat from the town. The area is also well served by an excellent choice of outstanding primary and secondary schools.
