Newly built 1 bedroom wooden hut with a living room (and own kitchen) and a separate room (however with shared bathroom) is finally available on Airbnb just mins from Brick Lane / Liverpool Str / Shoreditch High Street / Whitechapel / East End!
It's my 3rd wooden HUT, super exciting to open one in my favourite area!
* Spacious garden
* Infrared heating
* Fibre Optic BT Broadband
* Living room and a double sofa - bed room with table and 32inch TV
Fresh and never used by anyone from the 24th of February, 2018 wooden Airbnb hut is finally available for those wanting a little bit of a difference experience in London!
Let me explain clearly what to expect. The hut is consists of 2 open - plan spaces:
* Living room with mini kitchen, sofa bed, folding table and a comfortable Ikea sofa - bed. As it's a new project and a new investment for me, please don't expect all kitchen facilities to be there. There is a portable stove, kettle, plates and spoons etc. However I am still waiting to buy the fridge, oven and a microwave. This can be compensated in the big communal kitchen where you can find all facilities there.
* A double room with a Ikea sofa - bed, study table and 32inch TV. With NOW TV box (for cinema channels, Youtube, most of online streaming channels including radio)
The whole size of the wooden hut is 16.5 square metres. Don't expect it to be huge however it's reasonably spaced and suitable for 3 people to sleep and socialise. It's located in the garden of a 3 bedroom house which has a large kitchen, and a bathroom together with the toilet (please note the house is not modern or luxury / new, however it's a cosy place). Important note you will need to cross around 4 metres only of the garden in order to go to the bathroom but this shouldn't be a big issue, it's all about a different living experience I wanted to create in this hut
Most of the furniture items, lighting and decor I ordered are good quality Ikea products. Everything's brand new and should add up to the comfortable wooden hut experience.
I am using the infrared heating here's a reason why: infrared heaters emit a precise beam of heat that warms you directly by throwing out a steady stream of heat particles. With infrafed heaters, you don't have to wait to warm up with you step in from the cold, like with ordinary heaters. You warm up rapidly, with fast acting heat rays that dispel the cold. Infrared heaters are also actually "healthier" than other heaters since they do not reduce humidity or oxygen content in the room. Other heaters can dry out your sinuses and skin, as well as cause static electricity.
Conclusion: I am in the constant process making this space better every day. I have been working hard to save up for this project and I would very much appreciate any feedback on how to make this space better in private. IT will make a big difference to hear your comments!
Please note only 2 x parking places are available for the whole house. Before booking check availability!
London’s Brick Lane has a fascinating history and is one of the most popular places to visit in the East End today, especially on a Sunday when the street’s gets the area buzzing.
Sitting in the heart of the East End, Brick Lane was a poor slum area in the past; it was in the very heart of Jack the Ripper territory. Today, following a bit of regeneration, it offers exciting alternative shopping opportunities, various markets and some of the best curries in the capital!
Brick Lane Market
Brick Lane has an extremely popular and quite eclectic Sunday market that is popular with locals, Londoners from other areas and visitors to the capital. The market was originally licensed to run on Sundays in the 1800s – this was unusual at the time as markets were not supposed to open on the Sabbath.
At that point in Brick Lane’s history, the local population was predominantly Jewish, so a special dispensation was given for Sunday opening, as the Jewish Sabbath falls on a Saturday.
A Sunday trip to Brick Lane market is generally a lot of fun. You may find some regular stalls in there, selling the kind of stuff you’d expect in a market, but the real charm here are the second-hand stalls.
People sell all kinds of stuff at Brick Lane – you can pick up collectibles, CDs/DVDs, vintage clothes, retro accessories and even large pieces of furniture – and it is still possible to hunt out a real bargain or simply buy something a little bit unusual.
There is also usually some street entertainment going on throughout the market site and you can also pop into various indoor markets, such as Upmarket and Backyard, which operate out of the The Old Truman Brewery building. This complex also contains galleries, exhibition spaces, shops, and bars, restaurants and cafes.
Art in Brick Lane
Brick Lane is also home to a thriving artistic community. Its graffiti is particularly worth looking out for – street art is celebrated here rather than immediately cleaned off! Lucky locals in the past have seen work spring up on their walls from C215, Stik and ROA. There are also plenty of small galleries dotted around Brick Lane and its surrounding streets that are well worth a visit.
The 'Shoreditch Triangle', which incorporates Shoreditch High Street, Great Eastern Street and the Eastern-most point of Old Street (and the general locality, extending across to Brick lane and virtually meeting the City on Bishopsgate has fast become an international centre. In the span of 10 years or so it has moved on from being a particularly cheap real estate area, which attracted throngs of poor artists, to becoming the centre of the art world. Whilst to be sure, its success risks its becoming another Notting Hill or Angel Islington - full of 'trustfundists', wannabes and media schmaltz - it still maintains a character of its own, full of hidden bars, galleries, squat parties that rarely get shut down, art, dissent, good food and a true international presence.
Shoreditch is part of the London Borough of Hackney and is ideally placed in relation to the City, to the South and the South West, the barbican, to the West, Farringdon and Clerkenwell, also West and Angel to The north. Hackney resides to the East and North East, Incorporating Old Street, Brick Lane, Curtain Road, the West End of Bethnal Green Road and Hackney Road, and a Warren of smaller roads between, Shoreditch is home to literally thousands of creative individuals, from Fine Artists to musicians, designers and filmmakers.
The scenery, though still largely industrial, and otherwise populated by a large proportion of ex-authority housing, allows for constant exploration: Perpetual renovation and rebuilding makes this a vibrant area to settle in.
There is a strong international community that populates Shoreditch as a whole, and no one group dominates. Apart from the long established Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities there are a great many Eastern Europeans, Americans, French, and so on. It would seem that there are rather less Antipodeans in East London than in West London, although Australian, New Zealanders and South Africans are represented, especially as so many work in the neighbouring City.
There is till a high presence of die hard East Londoners in and around Shoreditch. On the whole they mix fairly well with the incoming creative and tourist communities. There is some local debate regarding whther or no the influx of wealthy middle class persons is having a detrimental effect on the character of the area. However with the Olympics up and 'progress' being what it is, the steady gentrification of East London is inevitable and is, perhaps, no bad thing. As the din of artist's parties drowns out the din of failing industry, one might reflect on how much of a success the regeneration of Shoreditch has become.
