Enjoy the unusual combination of close access to central London and the comforts of village life. Stoke Newington is not on a tube-line and so has preserved its villagey feel despite being in zone 2 and just up the road from Angel Islington, the heart of North London. We live a minute's walk from Church Street, the hub of this community, which is famous in London for preserving its "hippie" ethos and refusing to admit chain stores into its ranks of cool cafes, yummy restaurants, and trendy vintage shops.
We do, however, have a multiplicity of ways to access central London - there are three different tube stops a short bus ride or 25 minute walk away, and also an overground train just up the road which will get you to Liverpool Street station in under 20 minutes.
Built in the 1880s, the house has many original features, blended with contemporary urban design. Everything has been recently renovated and repainted, so the house has a fresh appearance. We have a small, but perfectly-formed, garden with table and chairs to sit out in underneath a pear-tree.
The master bedroom has a double bed and a cot, and there is a toddler's bed in the small second bedroom. We also have a blow-up mattress which could accommodate extra guests if needed. We have a 3 year old and a young baby so the house is definitely set up to accomodate children and babies.
