A bright, and well proportioned two bedroom apartment set on the first floor of this period conversion.
The property features a bright and spacious open plan reception/kitchen, flooded with natural light from dual front aspect windows, and enjoying a striking feature wall. There are two well sized bedrooms - a generous double with inbuilt wardrobe and a further single/study, each with quiet rear aspect - plus a stylish family bathroom with white three piece suite and elegant tiling.
The property is enviably located in a much sought after residential road in the heart of Stoke Newington, within easy access of Stoke Newington and Rectory Road stations, as well as numerous regular bus routes. Stoke Newington offers an array of shops and amenities, with Stoke Newington Church Street providing a wonderful array of fashionable bars, cafes and restaurants. The area is well served by excellent local schools and beautiful open spaces including Clissold Park, Abney Park and the Wetlands.
What do you love most about your home/property?
Our flat is well-located but feels so quiet in the bedrooms to the back of the building. It really is the best of city living. The light in our flat was what drew us to it. It's been a sanctuary for us. It's a place we have both felt very safe and comfortable, particularly as it held the heat well in winter too!
Why are you selling?
We have loved owning this flat. It's been a dream first home for us. We're selling to return home to Ireland to be closer to family. If only we could take the flat in our suitcases!
What do you love about the area?
Our neighbours have been so lovely, so we'll miss that community feel! The connections into central London and to Stansted airport are so easy with the overground at Rectory Road. The nearby parks are amazing, West Hackney park is on Manse Road, where community meet ups are held in summer, and Hackney Downs park is just around the corner too. There's a weekly farmers market at West Hackney church, located two minutes' walk up the street. Bake Street coffee is a few minutes' walk and Church street is nearby for Sunday strolls around boutique shops.
