Property description

A beautiful finished, spacious two bedroom, two bathroom home brimming with vintage style. It's all located on the first floor of a modest gated development in the Clapton Square conservation area, with views over Clapton Square itself, surrounded by greenery, in the heart of Hackney.

You'll be relaxing in the 300 square foot lounge/diner features immaculate contrast walls, plenty of natural light and an artfully separate kitchen area, with hardwood floors underfoot and a comprehensive set of fitted cabinets.

You've more hardwood floors in the shower room (en suite to the 100 square foot master bedroom) and the main bathroom off the central hallway is just as stylish as the rest of the property. The development itself is a modest gated low-rise, with well-maintained communal areas and an entryphone system.

Sat in the heart of Hackney you have excellent transport links on your doorstep, with both Hackney Central and Hackney Downs stations less than half a mile on foot. In the evenings you're spoilt for choice, with the Hackney Empire, Hackney Picturehouse and a huge range of pubs, bars and clubs within easy reach.

What else?

A word from the owner...

"We’ve lived in Clapton Square for several years now and loved every minute.
Everything really is on your doorstep. For coffee we love The Pacific and The Lion cafes, and Chatsworth Road or Broadway market for lunch at the weekend. Shops and transport links are all just a short walk away and we’ve loved the beautiful Round Chapel and St Johns Church where we've watched many of our favourite bands play with the bonus of only having a 2 minute walk home.
Being tucked just off Clapton Square its wonderfully peaceful and guests are always commenting on this and the great layout of the flat. You really do have the best of both worlds.
We’ve made wonderful friends in the square and will miss being part of this lovely community.
We’re sure the next owners will love living here as much as we have.”
