Located in the fashionable Hoxton/Shoreditch area, this cool-style London apartment makes a perfect spot to explore London.
It has 2 excellent large and clean double bedrooms, a modern bathroom with bath and power shower and a superb modern fully fitted kitchen and an incredible private outdoor balcony.
Old Street underground train station is a short walk away. Red double decker buses to St Paul’s Cathedral, Covent Garden (shopping and theatre), Waterloo (London Eye), Westminster (Houses of Parliament) and London Bridge (Tower of London & Tower Bridge) all depart 200 yards from the apartment building entrance every 3-4 minutes. Hailing a London black cab outside the building is just as easy.
The Master Bedroom and the Guest Bedroom both feature a truly superb and comfortable double bed with an excellent memory foam mattress and the finest of crisp clean linens ensuring a wonderful nights sleep. All rooms in the apartment have commanding views of the canal. The master bedroom also has the added flexibility of having an inflatable single mattress made up for a young adult if required.
The Bathroom has been designed with beautiful clean limestone tiles on the floor and around the bath/shower area.
Off the sitting room is a wonderful sheltered and protected outdoor balcony with comfortable and relaxing outdoor furniture directly overlooking the Regent’s Canal.
Within the building complex there is a Health & Fitness centre, which for a small fee offers a fully equipped managed gym complete with a full range of beauty/spa treatments.
Working in the financial markets in the City of London, I bought this apartment in 2001 as it was one of the highest quality apartment buildings in a great location that has stood the test of time. I wanted a place that enabled me to walk to work, or a short cab ride home. I travel a great deal and to have a building with 24 hour porterage was essential to ensure safety and security while I was away. With a great waterside view and offering such a sense of space, when an opportunity arose to buy a larger loft in Shoreditch, this apartment was just too good to let go. I love the area and still live, work and socialise here.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2001
Hoxton & Shoreditch is such a vibrant neighbourhood, crammed full of exciting bars, amazing restaurants, cool galleries, vintage boutique shops and is complete with a very cool vibe. There are plenty of live music venues, specialist lighting, clothing, book and furniture shops. There are cutting edge hairdressers, live comedy shows, parks and squares to hang out in. It is a neighbourhood with photographers, designers, artist galleries, loft apartments, juice bars and just so much more for any visitor to handle! Staying at my apartment offers you the opportunity to live in a very cool and hip neighbour that just doesn't stand still. If you are creative and enjoy being part of a vibe that is away from the common and popular regular tourist traps - but close enough to visit them, take the photo and tick the box, then this is the perfect spot for you!
With my personal created walking tour guides that will be waiting for you in the apartment, you cannot fail but to make the most of what the area has to offer - and it is huge!
After a busy day exploring just how cool and trendy the area is, it is a wonderful to return home, sitting on the balcony with a refreshing drink, watching Londoners go about their everyday business on and along the Regent's Canal from a private and secluded spot. If you enjoy jogging, you can jog for miles and miles along the waters edge, not crossing any roads and avoiding all the traffic. The apartment is located in a very happening and creative area with so much to offer to all tastes.
My wife and 25 year old son stayed for 10 days in this flat. It was so much better than staying in a hotel room. We had room to move around and have our own space. The flat was excellent, very clean, and had everything we needed. We could hop on a bus just outside the flat and a short walk to the underground. So it was very convenient to get to the sights of London. Peter was extremely helpful with recommendations on where to go, how to get there, and where to eat and drink (would recommend going to Hoxton Square which is a short walk away). A nice added bonus was he provided Oyster cards for each of us which made using the buses and underground very easy. Roberto picked us up and dropped us off at the airport, this was huge. Trying to fight with the luggage on trains and taxi's would not of been fun. Overall, I have nothing but positive things to say about the flat and would highly recommend staying here and will do so if we return to London. Also, the pictures on the website depict the flat very well.
My husband and I had a terrific 10 day stay. The location in East London was the best, buses right outside, short walk to tube and great restaurants. Peter was always available to answer questions and even had the flat cleaned and linens changed half way through our visit. We look forward to staying in warmer weather when we can enjoy sitting on the balcony and watching the activity on the canal.
We could not have had a better place to stay than Peter's flat for our family of 5. The flat was very clean, beautiful and with all the comforts, it was truly home away from home. Peter was very thoughtful and accommodating. He always made sure we had everything we needed. He gave us personal advice on things to do, as well as provided the necessary tools for getting around, such as guidebooks to borrow and oyster card read to use. It's very conveniently located near public transportation. Thank you Peter for going well beyond our expectations. We will return!
We were so happy we stayed at Gainsborough Studios. The flat was amazing. Clean, modern and very comfortable. We stayed with our family of 4 for almost 6 weeks (this past Sept / Oct) and could have stayed another 2 months.
Peter and Roberto (the owners) are amazing and very helpful.
The flat is ideally located close to simple bus routes with access to all of London's hot spots.
We really enjoyed the great deck that over looks the Regent Canal. Great in any weather. You can watch the joggers and bikers along the tow path while you sip a glass of wine or cup of tea.
There is a private Gym downstairs, so if you are staying for a while it may be worth joining for a month. Also the Coop shop downstairs has most of the items you may need. There are several Gastro pubs walking distance and Broadway market is very close along with Islington.
Thanks so much Peter and Roberto for making our stay a very memorable one and we will be back.
Peter, everything was exactly as described and your lovely place exceeded our expectations.
We were greeted at the airport very early by Roberto who was so pleasant and a good driver. Having you say goodbye to the previous occupants and turn around and freshen a room to accomodate our 86 year mother for a rest was beyond kind. The care and effort you put into the flat is obvious everywhere from equipped kitchen to info on all the sights
and local neighborhood treasues. The 76 bus just a two minute walk took us to central
London with ease. Loved the neighborhood with canal and great shops, markets and
restaurants. We had to go back to Sweet Thursday's twice for the fennel, sausage pizza and terrific salads. The De Beauvoir Deli is the place to get Scotch Eggs and Scones and is an easy walk. Sunday flower market and Sunday Pub Roast at Albion's also not to
be missed. We are so grateful our first London experience was spent here and will be
back. Thank you Peter for everything.
Peter we wanted to thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful flat. We found it to be so convenient when catching the bus or tube into the center of London. Unfortunately, we were only in London for four days and wished we had been able to stay longer. We have it on our agenda for next year's vacation; we will stay a full week.
The flat has everything you can imagine and more. The supermarket on the street level has everything you need and has fresh bread every morning. We rented bikes and rode them to the Saturday farmer's market near the canal, it was the best market with everything you could possible imagine and more.
It was nostalgic to part from such a beautiful area but it has left us with many memories to cherish for years to come.
Thank you again to Peter and Roberto both extremely professional and helpful. We hope to return in the near future. God Bless!!
