If you lived here
At the top of the stairs on your skylit landing, you'll come to the first of your two bedrooms. This one is seventy square foot, perfect as a child's room or home office. Stripped pine boards lie underfoot. Next to that is your lounge, 140 square foot with double sash windows. A simple hearth with pine mantel sits between bookshelf-filled alcoves. Your second bedroom is next along. Almost as large as your lounge, it gives you 135 square foot to spread out in.
Your bathroom is filled with natural light, with vanity sink, wood panelled tub and wooden floorboards underfoot. A door from here leads you down to your low maintenance garden, surrounded by foliage and with plenty of room to eat outside. At the end of the landing is your fabulous 160 square foot kitchen diner. Smart grey units and a ceramic sink sit within vibrant orange walls. Geometric tiling underfoot completes the stylish look.
Seven minutes on foot takes you to Clapton Station for the Overground, putting you just twenty minutes from Liverpool Street door to door. It's only twelve minutes to Stoke Newington Station too. As for green spaces, you're half a mile from North Millfields Recreation Ground, with the River Lea just a little further opening up a world of weekend walks. A quarter of an hour takes you to Hackney Downs, and Springfield Park is ten minutes away on foot.

- Twelve nearby schools are rated 'Outstanding', including Jubilee and Southwold Primary Schools and Clapton Girls' Academy.
- It's ten minutes on foot to blok Clapton, a former tram depot turned ultra-modern fitness centre.
A word from the owner.....
"i've got so much out of this area in the 14 years i've lived here- easy access to the nightlife of Dalston and Shoreditch, the independent shops, cafes and restaurants of Stoke Newington and Chatsworth Road, the arts and music events across Hackney and the green spaces of Abney Park, Springfield Park and the Marshes around the Lea River. All while being three stops on the Overground from Liverpool Street. Recently it's become easier than ever to cycle in the area and there's now a yoga studio on the doorstep at Core Clapton, along with old favourites Sodo Pizza, The Royal Sovereign and The Crooked Billet within walking distance. Neighbours have become friends for life. It's not easy to leave!"
