£1250 per month or £350 per week for comfortable, quiet 2-3 bedroom house and garden with excellent transport links

We’re looking to rent this pleasant, quiet house for a month. It’s a comfortable three-bedroom house with a small back yard/garden; the third bedroom is being used as a study. The layout is typical of Victorian terraced houses, with living room, dining area, kitchen and bathroom downstairs, and the bedrooms upstairs.

The house is a on a friendly and quiet side road, with St James Park at the bottom of the road, and the cafes and shops of Markhouse Road at the top. Though it’s a little way out from central London in terms of distance, the transport links are extremely good and it’s very easy and quick to get in and out. The house is 3-4 minutes walk from St James Street overground station, and trains go regularly to Liverpool Street station (taking 15 minutes). Alternatively there’s a nice 12-15 minute walk through back streets up to Blackhorse Road underground station on the Victoria line. From there it’s 12 minutes to King’s Cross and 17 minutes to Oxford Circus.

It’s also close to Walthamstow Market, the longest street market in Europe, one of the London’s most multi-ethnic spots and a place to buy foods and fabrics of the world for less than you’d pay anywhere else in London. One stop on the train takes you to Walthamstow Central, which has a cinema complex and plenty of increasingly fashionable cafes, restaurants and bars. The Queens Road leisure centre is 5 minutes walk, and the Olympic park isn’t far either.

The house is close to the big green open area of the Hackney Marsh nature reserve. This is a real boon – a wide open area of fields and meadows, partly grazed by cattle, and bounded by reservoirs and canals.

We moved here last year and have found it a safe, friendly, lively and mixed neighbourhood. There’s a little supermarket round the corner, together with three very nice cafes and a good Indian restaurant. Walthamstow has a nice urban buzz and liveliness, but it’s also calmer and quieter and less crowded than the city centre.

I’d be happy to answer any questions or discuss possibilities either by email, phone or skype.

I've rented to visiting academics several times in the past, and they've been very happy with the arrangements (I can provide their references if asked).
