This is an Edwardian 2-bedroom flat in a very quiet area within easy access to all the buzz of East London. You will have your own room at the end of the property, sharing the kitchen and bathroom with us.
The bedroom has a double bed and peaceful views; our front room overlooks the quiet street, and our house also has a quiet back garden with a table and a wood-heated sauna!
The flat is near Lea Bridge station (5' to Tottenham Hale or 5' to Stratford) and buses to Clapton/Hackney/Walthamstow.
There are stairs immediately as you enter the property which take you onto the first floor, so this is unsuitable for people requiring accessible accommodation.
The bedroom has a double bed and ample wardrobe space, as well as views of the garden.
The front room is equipped with a wood stove, wall-mounted TV, and table that seats 4 (or 6 with two extra chairs), and a very comfortable sofa.
The kitchen is very cosy and sweet, and fully equipped (except a microwave!). We have a gas cooker and electric stove (best combination), a large fridge, freezer, all spices you could possibly want to use, and a washing machine (no dishwasher — roll up your sleeves and get to work, innit!)
The bathroom is large with a bath and separate shower. The stairs to the garden are through the bathroom, so you need to keep that in mind if you are spending a lot of time outside and people might be using the bathroom!
Our garden has lovely plants, a table and chairs to chill on, and gets plenty of sun during the day. There is a wood-heated sauna which can be used at an extra charge and after agreement as to care and usage. Just ask for details :)
NOTE that the garden is not all ours, and it is shared with our downstairs neighbour: the left-hand side is ours (with the sauna and the little table) and the right-hand side is our neighbours, so please respect that and don't use or visit her side or she might get annoyed! :)
Guests can access all areas in the house. You can use shampoos, cleaning products, spices, cooking oils, etc. If in doubt, just ask!
We recycle and have a compost bin, but we'll explain all that when you're here!
Interaction with guests
We both lead busy lives, so we won't be spending a whole lot of time with our guests — meaning this is perfect for people looking for a quieter stay and more privacy and independence!
- No door banging (neighbour is an old woman who gets scared easily!)
- If you break something, let us know! (we won't be angry, but we need to know to fix it)
- Don't use the sauna without prior agreement (It needs to be properly prepared and usage explained before you use it)
- Please take shoes off while inside.
