The space

Large double room in a four storey Victorian house with a private, enclosed mature garden situated on a very quiet residential street but very close to the village-like centre of Stoke Newington and convenient for the various transport systems to explore the area and London as a city.
We are a couple with a 20 year old son who is away university during term times.
The house is 5 minutes walk away from the overland station, Stoke Newington which has a regular service to Liverpool Street (15 minutes).
We are a 10 minute bus journey away from Dalston which has 2 overground stations which are fully integrated with the Underground system.
We are a 4 minute train journey or 15 minute bus journey away from Seven Sisters Underground station which is on the Victoria Line or alternatively a 20 minute bus ride from Highbury & Islington Station, also on the Victoria Line or a 20 minute bus ride from Finsbury Park Station which is on the Piccadilly Line.
We are very well served by buses from our local bus stop (2 minutes walk)

Stoke Newington has a history of non conformism and this is reflected in the diversity of the many independent shops, restaurants and bars which give the area it's friendly neighbourhood feel.

There is also Abney Park Cemetry (3 minutes walk away) a Local Nature Reserve of over 12 hectares of woods and pathways with many beautiful carved Victorian statues and memorials. We also have Stoke Newington Common, less than a minute's walk at the bottom of our street.
There is the Clissold Leisure Centre nearby which has 2 x 25m swimming pools as well as the usual fitness and weight equipment and also 2 Saunas a Steam Room and a Jacuzzi. At London Fields, 6 minutes away by train, there is an Olympic size 50m outdoor heated swimming pool.
