An entire two double bedroom flat in an award winning 1972 ex-council tower block with stunning panoramic views across the East End, City of London and the West End. The flat is ideal for musicians as it has a piano, guitar and (a saxophone or flute may be borrowed on request).
There is a large open plan living room/kitchen with 180 degree double glazed windows and balcony, bespoke kitchen with washing machine. There is a day bed in the living room - just larger than a single bed which can be used for additional guests. There is also a spare single mattress which can be set up in any room.
There is also a huge aquarium with a terrapin!
Most of the furniture and furnishings are high-end designer or handmade by local artisans or designers.
The two bedrooms have large windows looking onto the stunning city view with large wardrobes. One of the bedrooms also has a desk.
The rest of flat has beautiful laminated floors with custom made digital tiles in the custom-made bathroom.
The flat has been used for films and magazine photoshoots. A feature film called 'Panic' was shot almost entirely in the flat and will be in cinemas in late 2014!
If the flat is booked on the dates you want, I have an almost identical flat in the same block - take a look at my other listings!
Guests have sole access to the whole two double bedroom flat with bathroom, living room and kitchen for up to 6 people.
Please note that the flat isn't suitable for parties or large gatherings and noise must be minimal in the evening and at night.

Really enjoyed our stay, amazing and unique apartment in a fantastically convenient location, wouldn't hesitate to stop here in the (website hidden), lovely terrapin!
Great apartment. Great location. Killer views of London skyline. Actually such a cool location. Street art ftw! Foodie paradise! Short walk to the Brick Lane. Hoxton Square has tons of foodie options. You could eat your way to death :-) The apartment is very nice. Roomy. Two bedrooms. Washer but no dryer - so air dry everything. Recommended. Good communications with Claire about key transfer. And terrapin is adorable - like a free housepet. Old Road tube station short walk away.
We stayed at the apartment as a group of friends. The communication prior to our arrival was great, the keys were deposited at the arranged location and all necessary information was more than sufficient. The flat was clean and there were enough bedding and towels for the six of us. There were two double beds in the two bed rooms and the other two of our group stayed on the day bed in the living room and one a spare mattress in the kitchen area.
The location was great, about 10 mins walk from the tube and 5 mins from Hoxton square. There are a lot of restaurants, cafés and shops nearby. We can recomment staying at the apartment. Despite the fact that we didn't meet Claire, we still felt welcome as everything seemed well organised and prepared for us.
Claire's flat is very nice, roomy, with lots of light and a stunning view over London. The flat was clean and very comfortable, even for the 6 of us (2 were sleeping in the living room and there still was space to walk around). Claire's very nice too, giving lots of info on the flat and the area. The only negative thing I have to say is that there was a really bad smell in the elevator.
We spent 3 days in London at this flat which is full of life and includes an incredible view. Plenty of room, well equipped and a trendy and safe neighborhood close to public transportation. Claire was responsive to all communications and is highly recommended- even offering suggestions for the next language of our journey.

About the Host, Claire
I was born in London and have lived in Shoreditch for 13 years.
My flats are full of original pieces of art and furniture by many artists and it's all for sale!
I exhibit frequently in both London and New York and I have art studios in Hoxton and Williamsburg.
I love London and I hope to show off the best of it!
I'm very happy to recommend local galleries, bars, cafes or clubs. It might also be possible to use my art studio, which is 3 minute walk from the flat.
I'm also a keen distance runner, so let me know if you want any advice on running routes. It's possible to run for 20 or 30 miles through parks, along canals, marshes and woodland - only being on a road for a couple of minutes from the flat!
I speak French, some Spanish and a little Japanese.
