About Alastair G.

Brought up in the Far East and Australia.I am fascinated by design and making a space work.

Alastair G. purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Alastair G. chose Hackney

Grayson Perry said he really could not trust the taste of anyone living west of Marble Arch.Yes Shoreditch can overdo the hipster element, but right now it is without doubt the most exciting location to be in London.Saves a lot on taxis!

What makes this apartment unique

Very unusual to get a property of these enormous proportions in central London.Wonderful light streaming in from large industrial windows in the vast open plan living space overlooking views of the trees of Calvert Ave and the spire of St Leonards Church(1730's).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rarely is the actual experience better than the vision you had in mind beforehand, in this case, both the hosts and the apt hugely exceeded our expectations, and the bar was very high to begin with...



The apartment is gorgeous and every piece of furniture is a true art masterpiece (personally selected by the host). The layout is very convenient and the apartment is equipped with all the necessities. The location is unmatched, right in the middle of best bars and restaurants in town and very close to the tube and bus stations.



Alastair was available to us at all times, he is extremely friendly and accommodated all of our needs.



To sum it up, it is extremely recommended!

Shoreditch loft retreat

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a week seeing the sights in central London. After a short trip to France we arrived back in Shoreditch. What a great space and enticing area this is. Much more local and hard not to describe as hip and trendy. Unique nearby shops, restaurants galore, (Spanish Thai,Vietnamese,Indian, traditional) not to mention the proximity of Brick Lane and all that entails. Bukowski Burger at the Box Park is a must. On Sunday morning, the flower market off Columbia Street is a treat. We hopped a bus in front of the Ace Hotel next door and rode to the London Bridge,from there across the street and down to Borough Market. Go on a Fridat or Sat. for full impact and be hungry. Also try the Eggy bread with hokey-pokey butter and bannanas at the Ace Hotel reataurant just to the left out the door. The loft is expansive with Knock-out décor and great views in all directions. I must mention that Michael, upstairs, is the nicest man in London and was so helpful with our endless questions. We had twenty-somethings with us and they were pleasantly surprised with the abundance of nearby nightlife. Shoreditch was a winner with all of us.

location can't be beaten, smack in middle of shoreditch, vast living area with great views over church with trees. fabulous artworks, amazing bathrooms and dreamy beds/rooms. we stayed a week, went to west end but preferred local shops and restaurants (try Andina, Peruvian but book) in shoreditch. columbia road flower market on saturday is divine and have brunch along the market road. great stay, owner communication and service very professional, was a treat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit this review.Just to say Columbia Flower market is charming but is,of course, always on a Sunday.However every Saturday towards London Fields there is fabulous Broadway Market which is heaven for food lovers.Max out your taste buds on exotic olives,artisan bread,Vietnamese coffee etc etc. If it's sunny grab something delicious and picnic in London Fields.

Shoreditch was once the haunt of the Elizabethan artsy set.Shakespeare spent his early career living and working here and many of his contemporaries are buried in St Leonards Church, which the apt overlooks. By the 19th century the area had degenerated into a crime-ridden slum featuring Jack the Ripper,to be followed a few decades later by the Blitz.

Then, in the 1990s, creative types-think contemporary artists (Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst, et al) and forward-thinking design and media geeks once again moved in, drawn by the urban-grunge vibes, the multiculturalism, and it's sense of history. They transformed Shoreditch's aging industrial buildings into funky lofts, open-plan offices, and buzzing nightclubs. These days, now that it's the city's ground zero of artsy urban cool, it is far from a low-rent district.It is now a fast evolving go to destination which is very much a foodie destination from dining pool side at Shoreditch House to 24 hour beigels to Vietnamese to the Rivington Grill. Eclectic shopping(no chain stores are permitted) and art galleries abound with a now legendary night life.The axis of London has moved eastwards, and Shoreditch is very much it's beating heart.
