A real family home from home, with a sprinkling of London style and elegance!

The flat is special, but it’s also in a really cool area of East London, on the doorstep of the best markets, pop-up boutiques, independent cafe', pubs, and culture hubs the city has to offer!

The space

This is a lovely, light-filled apartment in East London N16. You’ll see from the pictures that the second bedroom boasts built in bunk-beds and so the flat will especially suit families with young children.The apartment is well appointed throughout, with central heating in all rooms and a gas-combi boiler meaning instant hot water. Appliances include a dishwasher and washing machine (both new in 2017), large upright fridge freezer, gas hob and electric oven, toaster, kettle, food mixer and all the pots, pans crockery and utensils a household would need.
There is a modern gallery style bathroom with bath and shower combined, a laundry cupboard and generous sink and cabinet.
The master bedroom enjoys a large double bed and a huge built in wardrobe, as well as copious bookshelves (with optional books included), and a dressing table. It overlooks the lovely garden to the rear of the apartment and so, even though the street is of the quiet suburban variety, it enjoys even more of the peace and quiet that the rest of the property possesses.
The apartment comes fully furnished and decorated with lots of lovely features such as a floating bookshelf, a kitsch chandelier, vintage Afghani wicker chairs, many interesting and beautiful paintings, an assortment of dining room chairs, a small comfortable sofa and a large dining room table which will comfortably seat up to ten people.
There is also an abundance of house plants and other decorative accoutrements to make the flat feel like a real home. For entertainment there is a fast broadband connection, as well as a stereo system and projector, and a digital radio.
Hopefully the photos will speak for themselves, but one final feature to draw your attention to is the beautiful, hexagonal shaped living room, with large sash windows opening from three aspects onto a leafy canopy with which the room is surrounded, giving a real sense of living in a bright, light-filled tree-top eerie. A lovely peaceful place to sit with each other or with a good book and feel rested after the hubbub of busy London days.

Guest access

Entrance is through a sole use front door – not a shared entrance as is often the case in London period conversions – and through the shared-use lovely and secluded garden at the rear of the property.

Interaction with guests

We are currently living in India, but we have a friend who is managing our house and she will be at the other end of the phone to help with any enquiries regarding the flat.

Great and big apartment in a very quiet area but close to Stoke and Clapton. We enjoyed our time there!

This is a beautiful and cosy family home in a very nice neighbourhood. We very much enjoyed our stay and felt immediately at home! Thank you Matilde!

Matilde's home is a delightful and charming space in London. The flat feels like a house, it is crammed with an eclectic collection of books and if you are traveling with a child as we were then this flat feels like home. The neighborhood is a microcosm of the world, wonderfully diverse, parks, restaurants - even a kid's cafe - pubs and a couple of independent book stores. Buses and the overground train station make moving around very easy. Matilde was very prompt with her responses. I cannot say enough good things about this place!

Matilde was very quick at getting back to us, and was very accommodating when we needed to add a day. Her apartment is beautiful, and in a great location. We really enjoyed staying there.

I had a lovely stay at Matilde's apartment, which is filled with warm colors and eye-catching textiles. The instructions for basic household tasks (turning on the heat, the stove, etc.) were clear, and it was easy to reach the property caretaker with questions. Plus, it was positively luxurious to have so many spices in the kitchen and books throughout the house.

I am from Italy, but I have lived in London for over 12 years. Our small family of four is back on the road again, and we are now off travelling around the world. Life is an adventure, make the most of it!
