About This Listing
Our house is architecturally unique, a contemporary home that sits happily amongst the rows of beautiful Georgian houses populating this area. Very close to bohemian east London and central London with great transport links. Ideal for a couple!
The eco house was built sustainably by the owners. It unites two different period buildings with a modern sensibility that makes amazing use of space in the fashionable London borough of Islington.
This listing is for a couple only; the house has
three floors and comfortable lounge area .
Two bathrooms (one en suite), kitchen and dinning area that opens into front garden patio.
The house is equipped with a widescreen HI Def TV, Hi - Fi thousands of DVDs & CD's, fast broadband (wireless) throughout. Washing machine and dishwasher. We like to cook so the kitchen is fully specked to self cater. The house is uncluttered with a minimalist feel and very light with under floor heating.
Dalston is our most immediate neighbour with a great night scene, where some of the coolest kids in London come out to play, giving the area the hip vibe it's now famous for. With a range of nightlife you can take in some of the best jazz in the city, see new plays, discover an unsigned band or simply dance the night away in a packed bar.
Access to the rest of London is really easy from here with the south bank of the Thames (Tate modern) & houses of Parliament all within half an hour by buses the leave within two minutes walk of the house.
Bicycles can borrowed upon prior arrangement.
Adjacent to the house we have a friendly Gastro pub (The Alma) an award winning French owned bakery, Italian owned Trattoria and the Turkish area known as 'Green lanes' which bustles with affordable restaurants.
Master bedroom, lounge, kitchen and garden. The kids room will be used for storage.
Interaction with Guests
We are happy to show our guests around our lovely house, we will provide you with a (website hidden) map of local and London wide features (restaurants, bars, galleries and markets).
Oyster cards can be provided for you to borrow (for public transport).
We do not stay in the house when guest are here, we have someone nearby who knows the house and area very well in case of difficulties.
We live within ten minutes walk of Highbury & Islington tube, which is three stops from Oxford circus, getting you into the heart of London from the house - half an hour.
Shoreditch and Camden are less than 15 minutes away on the overground train from Canonbury station (5 mins walk) connecting you to all the weekend markets bars and restaurants. Locally we are between Islington Upper street and Angel with upmarket shops and bars (ten minutes walk). Bohemian Stoke Newington church street with groovy restaurants and chain free shopping is ten minutes on foot.
The local area is very vibrant:
Islington is located in central London - transport to anywhere in London could not be easier.
Other Things to Note
An ideal place for couples. Your are minutes from the heart of London but in a peaceful green and friendly area.
Dalston offers exciting bars and London culture for more adventurous and alot of night activities.
With east London on the doorstep you will find more food, music, art and markets than is possible to visit in one go!
We are easy going and only ask beyond the basics that you respect our views on the environment by using eco friendly products whilst you are our guests and recycle all your waste in the bins provided. Recycling is collected once a week and bins need to be left out and collected at the street entrance.
Its a non smoking house but we have no problem with you smoking outside on the patio.
We are looking for easy going folk who want to enjoy a stay in London. There are lots of places to party around here but we would rather you didn't do it on our house.
We have a goldfish that needs a little feed now and again..but if thats an issue we can get around it.
Very interesting modern house in a great area of London. The garden was lovely and the peaceful master bedroom on the top floor had awesome views over the tree tops.
Fiona and her family were very friendly and house was equipped with everything we needed. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again
