Flat for sale in Mare Street, Hackney, London E8
With a colourful roof terrace in the heart of Hackney, this two-bedroom flat feels as full of life as the neighbourhood itself. Cleverly designed around ample charms, it’s a cosy haven above the hustle and bustle—and a magnet for friends and fun.Brickworks SaysFizzing with character, this two-bedroom flat with a roof terrace is a rare find in one of the most vibrant neighbourhoods in the entire Capital. The open-plan living room/kitchen is ideal for entertaining, particularly when the party spills out onto the south-easterly terrace. But this space is just as perfect for quiet Sunday mornings as lively Saturday nights. The bedrooms have a laid-back vibe and plenty of clever storage, while the luxe-classic bathroom has a drama all of its own. (Any fans of Russian Doll out there?) That’s the real appeal of this home: Its expert balancing act between comfort and conviviality, with the beating heart of East London on the doorstep.
The flat is mere moments from countless indie shops, restaurants, coffee shops, outdoor markets, organic groceries and popular nightspots. A jaunt through nearby London Fields takes you to Broadway Market. A stroll in the opposite direction, and you’re in the middle of Hackney Downs. And commute-wise, Liverpool Street and the City are only 20 minutes away via Overground.The Owners SayWe’ll miss being in the thick of Hackney with everything on our doorstep. We the flat, particularly evenings on the terrace on our own, with the neighbours or with friends. It’s nice to have so much privacy and outside space for fresh air.
The location is amazing: One minute from the tube, and so close to Bohemia Place’s vegan market, London Fields, Broadway Market and Hackney Downs. Oslo is just opposite, as is Paper Dress Vintage, and we’ve seen super cool bands there. Our favourite places in the neighbourhood are wave for coffee and vegan food, I Will Kill Again for Aussie-style brunch, Lucky and Joy for Szechuan noodles and P.Franco and Bright for wine. And Seb, from the organic shop next to the flat, makes us coffee and has everything we need for cooking.Points To ConsiderThe EPC gives a current Energy Efficiency and Environmental Impact Rating: D.
