This light and spacious two-bedroom apartment, with clean lines and minimal design, forms part of a contemporary block just moments from Stoke-Newington and Dalston. Found on the top floor, the views over Amhurst Road and beyond are wonderful.
With the shops, bars and restaurants of Church Street and Kingsland Road both within easy walking distance, plus numerous transport links on your proverbial doorstep, the flat is pretty much perfectly placed to enjoy everything this corner of London has to offer.
Brickworks Says - The fact that the apartment is on the top floor, and positioned on the corner of the block, looking out over east London, means that it is probably the best in the whole block.
The sense of light and space really hit you on entering - fantastic vistas through large glass windows in the main living room set the place apart. More practically, we appreciate the fact that there are two bathrooms which is great for guests or an additional draw if you want to rent out a room.
The Owners Say - We like that there is so much light in the property and the views are great. Its strangely satisfying watching people coming and going and the traffic ebb and flow across the junction. The two bus stops right outside the block are very useful, and with real-time arrival information, onward travel with public transport is quick and easy.
The area is great. We've always felt completely safe here, and there's stuff going on daily - just around the corner or 5 minutes walk away in Dalston.
Points To Consider - There is secure, covered bike storage for the owners use to the rear of the block.
119 years remain on the lease term. The service charge is £165 per month (this covers heating and hot water bills). The Ground Rent is £250 pa.
The block was completed in 2010. There are 36 flats in total, all privately owned or rented.
Part of Hackney Council, the property is in council tax Band D (£1294.42 for 2016/17).
Brickworks Loves - Hackney Downs Park: just across the street is this great green space with kids' playground, exercise equipment, and tennis and basketball courts .
Hackney Downs Studios: on the way over to the park, there is a diverse mix of independent companies, including a bike shop, yoga studio, events space, and a florist.
The Rio: moments down the road in Dalston, is this fabulous and much-loved independent cinema. From the latest releases, to Lux video art showcasing. We think it is one of the most interesting cinemas in town.
Mangal: A fabulous Turkish restaurant on Arcola Street and personal favourite of the owners (the best Turkish they've ever come across!) is a hop skip and a jump from the flat. Pretty tempting on a Friday night. Or Thursday, or Wednesday, or...
The Hand of Glory: lovely old public house across the junction with excellent grub and a warm, atmosphere.
