An exceptionally light and airy penthouse apartment in Dalston/Shoreditch.
Beautifully decorated with modern interior design, art-work and quality fittings and appliances. Open-plan kitchen, dining and living area with one great wall of double-height windows. Opens out to a wooden balcony to accommodate al fresco dining and drinks as well as providing a super spot to view the Regents Canal and watch the houseboats, kayakers and families of swans and ducks go by!
The bedroom downstairs is equally light and airy with plenty of wardrobe space. The colourful bathroom is equipped with fluffy towels and top-range toiletries.
Let the mezzanine be your sanctuary after a hard day's work, shopping or sight-seeing. There's a comfortable king-size bed (with memory foam mattress) and a further sitting area with large grey suede sofa, coffee table and 42'' flatscreen tv (with DVD + video player). There's also a great collection of books and DVDs for your enjoyment. For guests visiting in winter time, this area is particularly cosy!
Walk to Hoxton Square, Brick Lane, Spitalfields, Broadway Market, Columbia Rd Flower Market and Islington - all within 10-20 minutes. Or, if you'd like to see more of what is being called the coolest part of London - Dalston - you needn't walk too far from the front door at all. Further down the same street is 'Pho Mile', home to London's finest Vietnamese restaurants, as well as other edgy and arty cafe/bars.
The closest Underground stations are Liverpool St and Old St. It's a 2 minute walk to the Haggerston overground, which will zoom you down to Canary Wharf within 15 minutes or give you handy connections at Whitechapel for the District line (to Kensington in 45 minutes) or Highbury & Islington (for the Victoria line and Oxford Street in 25 minutes).
If you're a City slicker, you could walk to work or catch one of the many buses outside the apartment leading down to Bishopsgate and reach the City with 5-10 minutes.
Shoreditch is an East End suburb with an interesting cultural mix of people and venues. There’s a distinct lack of chain stores, and an edge to every one of the boutique shops, taverns, bars and restaurants. The area has a hip vibe, and is a hub for fashionistas, artists and musicians. Wander Shoreditch High Street and its side streets and you’ll find an assortment of trendy clubs and cafes, vintage shops and street wear shops. A particular hotspot at the weekends is nightclub Cargo on Rivington Street.
Spitalfields to the South has a colourful history and the marketplace underwent a lengthy regeneration programme which resulted in the creation of two new public spaces: Bishops Square and Crispin Place. Amongst the food stalls, clothes and jewellery stalls are cocktail bars and designer shops such as the Mischa Barton Boutique.
A little way around the corner from Shoreditch and the City is vibrant Brick Lane, better known as the curry mile, offering the adventurous foodie a fragrant haven of all things Asian. The Whitechapel Art Gallery, which has debuted world-class artists such as Pablo Picasso, Lucien Freud and Gilbert & George, is on nearby Whitechapel Road.
If you’re looking for a unique home rental in an up and coming area, Shoreditch is the area of the moment, with a variety of distinctive modern apartments as well as period properties and mews homes.
