This period home, built in 1880, is in a great location in London’s hip East End.
On the ground floor you’ll find a large open-plan sitting room with a sofa area, an original fireplace, a leather armchair and an elegant chandelier. At the far end of this room - which has wooden flooring throughout - there’s a black grand piano, another chandelier, a second fireplace and a bookcase. There is a separate dining room for entertaining, with a wooden dining table and a large window on one side.
The kitchen in this property has modern fitted cupboards, wooden floors, and is well-equipped, with a hob, oven, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, coffee maker (and there’s a washing machine and a tumble dryer in the bathroom too).
The master bedroom of this house has a super king size bed, an original fireplace, a dark wood wardrobe, and two large sash windows. The second bedroom of this home has a double bed. The bathroom has a glass walk-in shower unit, a bath tub, a loo, 'his and hers' sinks and underfloor heating.
This house is in a great location to explore many areas of the in-vogue East End. Columbia Road is a quiet street during the week, and on Sundays, the flower market transforms the area into a bustling bohemian hub with stalls of flowers, clothes, coffee and even furniture. Good eateries nearby include Brawn, The Royal Oak and the Spanish tapas bar Laxeiro, or head to the famous Brick Lane for a great curry house. There are many other restaurants and bars in this area too. For foodies – Borough Market just the other side of the river, or Broadway Market (10 minutes walk away) are also good to explore.
You are also walking distance to many trendy bars and restaurants on Shoreditch High Street, in Spitalfields and Hoxton Square where there is the well-known White Cube Art Gallery too. There are two cinemas nearby: Rich Mix and the Aubin Cinema.
You are about a 10 minute walk from Liverpool Street station where you can join the Central, Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City and Circle lines. From here you can be at Oxford Circus for shopping in 11 minutes, or you can take the 55 bus (about a 15 minute bus ride). There are also many buses which will take you to many other areas of the Capital.
There were three of us looking for a cute apartment in an exciting part of London and this place in Shoreditch was absolutely perfect! We loved cooking up feasts in the kitchen and were very impressed with the grand piano in the sitting room. We went out to bars most nights so it was lovely to have somewhere relaxing and cosy to return to! I give it ten out of ten.
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.
