About this listing
Architect-designed Victorian flat on Dalston / Stoke Newington border. Double bedroom + double wall bed. Bifold doors open to large garden; dishwasher, WIFI, flatscreen, vintage decor. Cafes + bars galore. Real home from home in best part of London.
Hi, we are Ben and Sara, we live in a stunning Victorian flat with its own private garden in Dalston, East London. Sara is an architect and recently designed the place - we doubled the size of it and refurbished the entire flat.
It's a Victorian flat with a mixture of new and vintage decor. We have a new kitchen with a dishwasher, washing machine and coffee maker; and a large dining table.
This leads on to the lounge with a study area, flatscreen TV, rooflights and underfloor heating.
Bifold doors open up (entirely) on to a large garden fitted with artificial grass. We have petanque and skittles, deckchairs and yoga mats that you're welcome to use during your stay.
The bathroom is (like the rest of the flat) brand new, has a great shower and a huge bathtub (fits two).
The bedroom has a double bed with a brand new super comfy double mattress and new bedding. In the lounge there is a separate fold-down wall bed (Murphy bed to the Americans out there). Both beds are doubles and have the same mattress. The wall bed is essentially a proper bed, the only difference being that it's in the lounge and folds up/down. Great for watching films in bed.
The flat would suit a couple wanting a spacious stay or up to 4 sharers.
This is a real home from home in the city on a quiet Victorian street.
Entire flat, private garden.
Interaction with Guests
The place is yours - but we'll be a phone call away if you need us. We've written a full guide to shops, bars, cafes etc in the area.
It is perfectly located for the hipster hubbub of Dalston or the more halcyon heights of Stoke Newington.
Within 5 minutes walk you have a choice of restaurants, pubs, bars, gig venues, artists studios and a park. Checkout the guidebook link for more details.
Easy walk to Dalston Kingsland and Dalston Junction (10-15 mins) stations (links you to Shoreditch, the City, Canary Wharf in 10-15 mins and the West End in less than half an hour) or five minutes walk to Rectory Road station (trains to Liverpool St. in the City that take just 10 minutes).
Buses from the end of the street go to London Bridge, West End, Waterloo, Holborn, and the City.
Download the 'Citymapper' app in advance or search 'Transport for London' for routes.
Other Things to Note
We are a young couple with lots of knowledge of the local area and will do everything we can to ensure a happy stay - just ask.
Our cleaner Vassy comes every time we have new guests and the £30 cleaning fee is the price we pay.
If you'd like to treat someone you're travelling with to champagne / flowers / a crate of beer etc just let us know and we can sort it out at cost.
Parking can be arranged with advance notice at cost. Anything else just ask!
A real home from home - all we ask is that you look after it like you would look after your own place.
And it's probably obvious but no smoking in the flat (fine in the garden).
