I loved the flat from the moment I walked in even though at the time it was desperately in need of a total refit. I've spent so many nights sitting out on the fire escape and it's like a different world out the back from the bustle of Balls Pond Road at the front. It's so quiet and secluded, that we strung fairy light around the railing and got a small table a chairs which made it perfect for evening drinks. In the summer the courtyard garden at the back is great for bbq's. Aside from that I always loved the layout of the flat. When most people I knew had one bed flats with a combined living room and kitchen, I had separate rooms with the kitchen being a real highlight as it's great for cooking in and I often sat at the kitchen table watching the sunset. The bedroom is also at the back of the property so it was quiet at night.

I had 17 wonderful years at the flat and I've been renting it out since we moved out a few years ago but as our family is expanding we are now moving out of town so sadly it's time to sell.

Dalston as it is now has changed so much since I moved in in '98/99 but it still has an amazing buzz and more bars, clubs and restaurants than you could ever need. Great local pubs (including our favourite, The Talbot), great transport links from the overground (easy to take the overground for granted but it didn't exist when I first moved in) to busses including the 38 into town and also very close to Islington, Stoke Newington, Shoreditch and the City.
