Two bedroom garden flat on Regent's Canal. All bills and utilities (+ wifi ) included.

This is a charming artist's flat, set by Regent's Canal, with lovely front and back gardens. The house is very quiet and while quite central - set in zone 2 and right on the edge of zone 1- the area feels like a village. There are three large parks and it is close to East London's hippest shopping streets: Broadway Market - with its numerous pubs, restaurants, shops, its food and craft Market on Saturdays and its Sunday Farmers' Market is a 2 minutes walk away; Columbia Road (just across Haggerston Park) with its flower market, is also a popular shopping street. The area is London's most cycle friendly neighbourhood. The development is surrounded by self service docking stations (for a longer stay it is easy to buy a second hand bike). Hackney City Farm is within strolling distance, as are the trendy districts of Dalston, Shoreditch and Spitalfields. Transport links include numerous buses and the London Overground network, connecting to the Underground at Whitechapel and Highbury Islington. Bethnal Green Underground is a 15 min walk and Liverpool Street, with its five underground lines, is within easy cycling distance. You can play tennis in Haggerston Park and swim at the London Fields Lido. You will find a dozen cinema screens near by, offering art house films as well as blockbusters.
Nearby Hoxton and Shoreditch have a lot of art galleries, antique shops and exhibition spaces. People tend to walk or cycle rather than drive a car.
Access to the flat is via the back garden. The Canal, with its tow path and its house-boats, is less than 50 meters away (side view from the house), which gives quite a bucolic feel to the area.
On the ground floor there are a kitchen/living-room opening onto the back garden, as well as a toilet. In the garden, there is a frog pond and many birds, as well as the occasional visits of a squirrel or a fox. Upstairs are two bedrooms (one with a double bed (160) and one with twin trundle beds) and a large bathroom. (Two smaller rooms are locked for the owner's storage, as is the front room downstairs) .
