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!
