The house is a former workers terraced cottage built in the 1890s. Recently renovated to a very high standard the house comprises 2 good sized double bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, lounge, dining area, hall and small back yard. The house can sleep 4 people comfortably, one bedroom has a double bed and the other a king size which can be converted into 2 twin beds if necessary, there is also the option of an additional 2 children/teenagers or 1 large adult on the sofa bed in the lounge.
The house would be an ideal choice for a family holiday in London due to the excellent transport links to all of the major tourist attractions. Mile End tube station is a 3 minute walk and is served by 3 different tube lines which means journey times to Tower of London of 12 mins, The London Eye 20 mins, The West End 15 mins and Buckingham Palace 25 mins. Also suitable for business travellers working in the Canary Wharf area or the financial district 10 minutes.
The house is situated in the heart of vibrant and multicultural East London, close to Queen Mary's University and a very short bus or tube ride down to Brick Lane and all of the wonderful curry restaurants. Within walking distance of the house are plenty of grocery stores, cafes, pubs and restaurants. The Regents Canal is 2 minutes away and makes a lovely walk up to Victoria Park and Victoria Park Village which is a charming area with lots of nice cafes, shops and restaurants.
Parking outside the house is free during evenings and weekends, but weekdays it is residents only. We can provide temporary parking cards valid for 4 hours at a time for short stays, but for longer stays a parking permit is required which costs £5 a day plus a one off £10 processing fee, please contact the owners in advance to arrange this.
I was born in the north of England and moved to London 13 years ago. I work for a human rights charity part time and my partner is a solicitor.
It is a lovely, comfortable, traditional property which allows you an authentic London experience as opposed to staying in a West End hotel.
Great transport links and a lovely period house.
