5 Bedrooms

An impressively grand and spacious five bedroom family home, arranged over three floors, with driveway and large garden to the rear. As ideally located as it is substantial, you're in the very heart of one of East London's most vibrant boroughs, with Clapton's green spaces and nightlife on your doorstep.

Design & Decor will need some updating here and there, but you have a wealth of vintage features you'll take joy in restoring to glory, and with nearly 2000 square feet of living space and that superb location, you couldn't wish for stronger fundamentals.

IF YOU LIVED HERE…

You'll have a rare opportunity to create your perfect home in one of our most enviable postcodes. From the ornate original mouldings, cornicing and ceiling roses in the hallway and lengthy through lounge, to the sheer square footage at play – the vast potential is immediately apparent. To the rear you have the family bathroom plus a utility room, a pair of spaces that with the existing plumbing could easily be converted into a delightful kitchen/diner.

Upstairs, you have the current kitchen, a generous traditionally handsome affair with oak cabinets and box hatch hardwood floors. Depending on your needs and ambitions, this could be kept as is, or turned to use as yet another bedroom, reception or study. There's a handy spare WC next door, and your first two bedrooms are solid doubles of 170 and 140 square feet respectively. Each opens up to bedroom three, raising a whole host of intriguing possibilities from a Jack & Jill bathroom, to nursery or shared dressing room.

Upstairs the original – not converted – second storey provides a further pair of impressively spacious double bedrooms, coming in at 220 and 130 square feet respectively. Each room comes with a wealth of fitted storage, and the larger space to the front has hardwood floors and pleasant treetop views. To the rear there's soft carpet underfoot and a view over your lengthy rear garden, a length of patio flanked by large beds, ripe for some green fingered attention.

Outside, and you're less than a half mile from Hackney Downs Park, perfect for morning jogs and evening strolls and complete with children's playground, plus basketball and tennis courts. North Milfields Recreation Ground is just as handy, while just a little further you have the wild open greenery Middlesex Filter Beds Nature Reserve flanked by the River Lea and with the expanse of Hackney Marshes just beyond.

Legendary gastropub The Crooked Billet is less than five minutes' walk – one of the many jewels in Hackney's crown, the huge beer garden is the stuff of legend, as is the delicious menu, fine wines and craft beers. Other fine local wining and dining options include The London Tavern, SoDo Pizza and the artfully appointed Tram Store cafe. Fine choices all.

WHAT ELSE?

- Just four minutes on foot will get you to Clapton Overground Station, and a wealth of further destinations. Liverpool Street is just thirteen minutes direct, Hackney Downs just four, and should you wish to hop on the tube Bethnal Green is a mere two stops and eight minutes away.
- Your generous cellar is, as ever, ripe for further development. We've seen such spaces turned into everything from Tiki Bars to studies, or simply used for storage.
- Parents will be pleased to know that you have an impressive thirty two primary/secondary schools within a one mile radius alone, all rated 'Good' or better by Ofsted.

i feel right at home in hackney, although i’m originally from greece. you can be anyone, wear whatever you like and always feel welcome. the multiculturalism here comes across in the diversity of the cafés, restaurants, shops and bars. from specialty coffee shops and michelin star restaurants to beautiful parks and art galleries, hackney has something for everyone.

Weekends at Victoria Park or Broadway market are filled with great community energy, international delicacies and local artisan creations. For dog lovers, the marshes are beautiful for afternoon and weekend walks with your four-legged friends. And while you’re there, you can stop by the river Lea at the Princess of Wales for a Sunday roast, Here East for brunch, or Crate Brewery for pizza and a local beer. Properties in the area vary from characterful Victorian and Georgian houses to charming local authority red-brick blocks and beautifully designed modern developments with communal roof terraces. I have found my home in Hackney and it holds a very special place in my heart. EVA BOUZAKI SENIOR VALUER

Our Local Guide:
Hackney

Brooke Road, Hackney — Stow Brothers

Where do you start with Hackney? It can feel like it’s all been said before, but, of course, it can’t have been because the area is constantly evolving, which is what keeps it so fresh. It’s just what happens when a neighbourhood has such a high population of creative innovators.

Even fans of Hackney’s scruffier edges love the imaginative ways that the area has been regenerated, with thoughtfully-designed stores, bars and coffee shops sitting comfortably alongside sleek architecture and beloved institutions such as Ridley Road Market.

Despite all this urban buzz, the area has a surprisingly large amount of green space, including Hackney Wick, Victoria Park and London Fields, which fill up with a mix of visitors and locals at weekends. Whether they go on to have food at a Michelin-starred restaurant, a pint in The Talbot or a swim in the lido, they’re all united in their love of this most unique community.
