Stoke Newington (or 'Stokey' to locals) is in the London Borough of Hackney, and is a very popular area with young singles and couples for its excellent Overground links from Stoke Newington as well as tube services from Finsbury Park and Manor House.
What began as a village hundreds of years ago is now full of interesting independent shops, cool pubs and every sort of restaurant you can think of. But there's still a strong community ethos. The range of property available is a strong point too, with families looking to rent period homes and new-build flats popular with professional singles and couples.
Stoke Newington does well for open space, given its size. You can canoe or sail on West Reservoir, or walk around the lake in Clissold Park and visit the menagerie. The schools are very good in the area too, including Grazebrook and William Patten Primary.
The Felicity J Lord Lettings Stoke Newington office is open Monday to Saturday. Come and see us at 69 Church Street or give us a call.
