Cosy and bright two bedroom London flat home swap

Completely renovated in 2018, this two bedroom flat in Clapton has been our London home for 12+ years. On the top (second) floor of an end-of-terrace Victorian townhouse, contemporary decor is coupled with Victorian features for a blend of old character and modern comforts. We enjoy a large master bedroom in the converted loft, in addition to a second double bedroom/office and well appointed kitchen-living space. We have one modern and minimal bathroom with a walk in shower. There is a wall mounted tv with access to Netflix, Amazon Prime and Sky TV channels, as well as high speed wireless internet. The house is peaceful and calm, and has a shared back garden if outdoor time is needed.

About the location

The flat is well situated with easy access to Hackney Downs park at the end of the road, and a stroll to the nearby River Lea for canal-side walks. We have a number of small supermarkets, bakeries, shops and restaurants a 3 minute walk away in the hub of Clapton Pond around the corner. It’s an area that has a little bit of everything, and offers a window into the “real” London.

In terms of public transport, it’s a 9 minute walk to Hackney Downs overground station, which connects to Liverpool St (the City) and the Undergroud/tube network within 8 minutes. It’s a 15 minute walk to Hackney Central overground station, which links the amenities of Stratford and the Olympic Park with West London. We’re also well connected with buses which allow you to get your bearings above ground on the way to the shops, restaurants and entertainment in Dalston, Angel, the West End, and Kings Cross (for Eurostar connections to Paris, Belgium and Amsterdam).
