1 Bedroom

An elegant and sizeable one bedroom apartment on the ground floor of a beautiful Victorian townhouse, right opposite the lush greenery of Hackney Downs. With a huge communal garden, and bike storage right outside, this is quite a find.

Cyclists can enjoy bike-friendly routes from Kingsland High Street all the way down to Liverpool Street. The nearby routes through Hackney Marshes and on to the Olympic Park beyond are well worth a visit, too. There's no better way to blow away the cobwebs.


You'll be relaxing in your refined 180 square foot lounge/diner with leafy views over the Downs through your classic bay window, west-facing natural light bouncing off pristine white walls from mid-afternoon onwards, and sturdy timber boards running underfoot. To the rear's your kitchen - just as inviting and home to glossy white units and an exquisite backsplash of silver blue letterbox tiles. It's all fully zoneable thanks to those mustard yellow, floor-to-ceiling curtains.

Head past the handy storage in the hallway now and the bathroom's to your left - home to a shower over the tub and a mix of white walls and creamy travertine tiles. Your sumptuous bedroom's 215 square feet and so large it can also serve as a home working space and snug, currently zoned by a wardrobe to fine effect. Lastly, step through the patio doors to the rear to access your east-facing communal garden. A mix of lawn dotted by rose bushes and mature foliage, it's a great place to take in Hackney's heritage while meeting the neighbours.

Outside and Hackney Downs overground station is eleven minutes' stroll for direct eight minute runs to Liverpool Street. Two stops northwards will see you to Stoke Newington for the esoteric enclave of Stoke Newington Church Street ñ it's bursting with bars, restaurants and artisanal stores and perfect for a night out. We highly recommend Beaucatcher hair salon here too ñ ask for Maggie. If you're heading to the West End then Hackney Central overground is a fifteen minute walk and will speed you to Highbury & Islington for a swift swap to the Victoria line.


- Your new local is The Star. Just a three minute stroll from your new front door, its flamboyant 90s interior, fine ales, delicious street food and large terrace will have you coming back for more.
- This home comes chain free, so you can move on in whenever it suits.
- Meeting up with friends? Uchi Sushi's six minutes around the corner and serves up silken black cod, and an explosion of agadashi and koraage flavours on the palate and plate.

a word from our hackney expert…

"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. The marshes are beautiful for afternoon and weekend walks. 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."

Our Local Guide:

Queensdown 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.
