Stylish, spacious, large private backyard, east London 1-bd ground floor flat

The flat
This flat is modern and quiet, interior-designed and pet friendly. There is a park and plenty of amenities close by. The building is off-street, with an open living room and kitchen that look onto an ample, secluded backyard. It is an oasis of calm, with great access to east and Central London, the City, Victoria Park, Regent's Canal and Hackney Wick. It is close to Queen Mary’s, Victoria Park Village, Westfield shopping centre, Colombia Road Market, Broadway Market and other east London hotspots. Other central London universities including King’s, Birkbeck and various UAL campuses, as well the British Library are a reasonable distance and transport is straightforward.

This flat is well-equipped and situated. It is great for long stays and urban retreats if you are looking to get work/writing done. The kitchen and seating areas are also perfect for anyone who likes to cook and entertain, or for a couple or family looking for some quality time, or for anyone hoping to relax and enjoy some time away while still having access to city conveniences.

The kitchen is roomy with plenty of counter and storage space, as well as quality appliances and gadgets, cookware, tableware, and a king’s ransom in spices. The double bedroom is a generous size and is fitted with a premium-quality super-king bed, upholstered headboard, chest of drawers, and large closet space for hanging and storing clothing and other items.

The bathroom is striking and cosy, featuring antique and new brass fittings, including a sunflower shower head with great water pressure, and the bathtub is large and specially designed to retain heat – it’s great for soaking. There is a closet in the hallway for additional storage, alongside a washing machine and standalone freezer. Bedding and towels available. There is a record player and LPs, and books at your disposal.

The area
The flat is a stone’s throw from the excellent shops on Roman Road Market, which cater to most palates, including a wide variety of vegan fare. There are several fine greengrocers, coffee and sandwich shops, a good wine shop, Italian bakery, Turkish bakery, traditional pie and mash shop, fish ‘n’ chips spots, cafs, and a Tesco if all else fails. The street is quiet, with no throughway for traffic. There are stands with rental bikes adjacent to the building (which is a low-rise). There is a street market on Roman Road on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, comprised mostly of clothing and homewares. On Sundays there is a popular food and farmers’ market in nearby Victoria Park, as well as the famous Colombia Road flower market and Broadway Market on Saturdays.

The flat is walking distance to local transport: Bow Road tube (District, Hammersmith & City lines, 10-minute walk), Bow Church (DLR, 10-minute walk), Mile End (Central line, 15-minute walk), Hackney Wick (Overground, 20-minute walk), and No 8, 276, 488, 339 busses (2-minute walk).

There will be rigorous cleaning done between reservations by an eco-conscious agency who are up-to-date on the latest Covid rules and regulations.
