Hackney Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Strut your stuff in this 1 bdrm flat w/a roof terrace in trendy Spitalfields
Have your camera ready, because here’s a home that’s going to be making a real splash. Like any runway superstar, it’s got a flawless complexion, poise, and some alluring curves. But a good bone structure is nothing without personal style, and Fashion Street really knows how to accessorise. Oversized lamps and fifties furniture strike their attitudes atop original dark wood floors. While outside, you’re surrounded by cafes, pubs and restaurants. Not to mention that Spitalfields Market- a honeypot for upcoming designers- is so near that you can clomp over in just a couple of minutes, however vertiginous your heels.
He’s got the look
Your host is a German photographer who came to London by way of Paris and the US. He loves the creative spirit of Spitalfields, and with neighbours like Gilbert and George or Tracy Emin, it’s hardly surprising that he’s lived and worked on Fashion Street for fifteen years.
This is a small but perfectly formed home. With long lean lines at every turn, from the sitting room’s mirror, to the cupboards, to the bedroom’s tall radiators, this is a home that knows how to work its angles. Nestle into the sofa beneath the most flattering of spotlights, and then, when you fancy a glass of something chilled, you’ll find champagne flutes on hand in the chrome and wood eat-in kitchen. The bathroom’s neat and funky, while the master bedroom is simple and exceedingly pleasant. Recline upon our crisp white bedlinen, or take your bubbles onto the roof terrace and admire the views of Hawksmoor’s Christ Church in the last of the evening sun.
Shooting on location
Get one step ahead of the catwalk with handmade pieces from Spitalfields Market, while lovers of all things vintage will swoon over the myriad shops that pepper the surrounding alleyways. For a whiff of Victorian London, atmospheric Whitechapel is around the corner, and foodies must make sure to take a trip down Europe’s curry capital, Brick Lane. You’re within a walk of the City, or if you want to hit the West End, the tube from Liverpool Street to Oxford Circus takes a cool ten minutes.
