Comments from the owner:
What do you love most about your home? We love the big basement - it's been our guest room, music room and workshop.
Why are you moving? Our kids have left and we need a different shaped home.
What do you love about the area? We love being being in the centre between Stoke Newington, Dalston and Clapton. The Downs is about 4 minutes walk away. Amhurst Corner has the Hand Of Glory and The Brunswick Bakehouse and open air hangs outside Hackney Downs Studios. Take your pick from any one of half a dozen excellent Turkish restaurants on the High St. For hard-core meat-lovers Testi is a delight (and their veggie options are pretty good too). Our kids grew up on Leyla's food at Cafe Bar Z on the High St. And then there's the very special charms of The Rochester Castle. Ridley Road market and Church Street are both less than 15 minutes walk. The Rio does a mixture of arthouse and big release movies and fantastic brownies and coffee in a beautifully restored hundred year old cinema. Kids both went to Shacklewell Primary with its amazing gardening projects and then Mossbourne which got them both into posh universities. Rectory Road Station is five minutes away and gets you to Liverpool Street in 20 minutes. To get to the West End, head North from to Seven Sisters and The tube will have you in the West End in 50 mins. Ref: ISL
