Beautiful, family-friendly duplex apartment with pretty garden located in a historic Victorian pub conversion on Hoxton Street, off Hoxton Sq. The flat is 1,200 square feet (11 square metres) with tons of space for entertaining and relaxing both inside and outside - two large reception rooms decorated with modern art and classic 1960s design pieces open onto a beautiful, leafy private courtyard garden! We welcome children and have lots of toys for them to play with!
A lovely, spacious apartment perfect for families and couples as it has tons of living space, a lovely private garden and a bathroom for each bedroom.
The flat is located on the ground and lower ground floor of a Victorian pub conversion (no lugging your buggy up and down stairs!). There is a very large reception with double-height ceiling, large flat screen television and piano plus a separate dining room and kitchen which has glass doors opening onto a pretty, private walled courtyard garden. This is perfect for children to play in during the day (sand and water tray included!) and for adults to have a relaxing drink in during the evening! There are high ceilings, a chic modern interior and loads of entertaining space, including a dining table for 8-10 guests. The flat is decorated with contemporary art and classic 60s furniture.
Our home has two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a super kingsize memory foam double bed and an ensuite shower room. The second bedroom is a small double in size and is currently used as a child's room with a cot. We can put two single mattresses in this room making the flat suitable for two couples as well as a couple with two children. (Two couples used to share this flat comfortably.) There is also a large family bathroom. The flat is child friendly: we are on the ground floor, there is direct access to the walled garden from the kitchen, and loads of safe space for play.
The entire flat will be available. Guests will also have access to the garden.
Interaction with guests
We rent the flat while we are away. We hope to meet guests when they arrive if possible, but can arrange key pick-up when we are not here.

No pets please
No smoking indoors please - but there's a very pretty garden with chairs and tables for beers and a smoke outside.
Please take care of the art - paintings and prints - in the flat. These are much loved pieces of art borrowed from my family.
I am a teacher, charity project manager and painter living, loving and working in Hackney. I live with Jon, my boyfriend, a solicitor, and our 2 year old son, Wilbo. Jon and I were both born and brought up in Hackney so have lots of local knowledge to share. Our house is full of paintings and books. My father is an artist working in Hackney so we have a collection of his work along with other pieces. Hoxton is a busy central location, but our flat is quiet and calm with a pretty garden you can chill out in. We always try to leave our home clean, ordered and welcoming for guests; we want our guests to love Hoxton as much as we do.
