The apartment is in the heart of the London's most vibrant area yet benefits from the quiet location of a lovely Victorian street. A great selection of bars and restaurants are just around the corner and the general buzz of the Shoreditch nightlife is only minutes away. It's on the doorstep of Hoxton Square and Redchurch Street; home to some of the most avant garde art galleries and near Brick Lane and the Columbia Street flower market.
The 2-bedroom modern flat is creatively decorated with separate bathroom and kitchen and a small outside patio. It includes everything you need in order to have a great time in London.
The flat can comfortable sleep 4 people, with the possibility of an extra person on the sofa if needed.
The apartment has been furnished to a high standard throughout and includes wireless broadband, full kitchen appliances, washing machine and dishwasher.

The contemporary kitchen has a big fridge and all the essentials including dishwasher and kitchen utensils. The modern bathroom is complete with power shower. Bed linen and towels will be included.
Fantastic transport links; the apartment is only 6 mins walk from Old Street tube station & Hoxton overground station and 15 mins walk to Liverpool Street Station. London City Airport is 15 min away by car. London Stansted is only 45 minutes on the Stansted express to Liverpool Street Station.
I am a very relaxed person and love meeting people from all around to the world. I’d be very happy to share tips on the best bars and Vietnamese/Turkish restaurants near me.
You can access all areas. I'm afraid the yard at the back of the house on the ground floor is not accessed by me and can only be used by the ground floor flats.
I'm usually away when you're staying but I'm always on email and phone if there are any questions. My caretaker Chris will let you into the apartment and can help out if there are any dramas.
My favourite restaurants, bars & street markets in the area – ENJOY!
Cockney Street Markets:

Columbia Road Flower Market, about a 5 minute walk from my apartment is also on Sunday like Brick Lane market and starts at about 7am. They're both a wonderful slice of East London like filled with cockneys shouting out their wares. Best to go early because it's gets very crowded. It’s on Columbia Road.

Dennis Severs’ House; a time capsule in which visitors are immersed in a unique form of theatre. Guests are escorted, in total silence, into candlelit chambers from which, apparently, their eighteenth- and nineteenth-century inhabitants have only just withdrawn. Powerful historical sensations and a family saga add up to a magical journey through time – specifically, Christmas time, as the house will be decked out accordingly for this festive season. You will need to book.

I work in TV so I’m often overseas and rent my lovely flat out while I'm away. I am a very relaxed person and love meeting people from all around to the world and hope you will enjoy the apartment as much as I do. I'm a big fan of my local area with its weekend markets, canal walks and ace bars and restaurants. I'm be very happy to share the best secrets of Hackney with anyone who stays!
