Our home is a contemporary maisonette (split-level house), finished at the end of 2014, 105 m2 with a lot of light coming through a massive Scandinavian style skylight. We live a minimalist, movement-rich lifestyle, with very little furniture and a lot of space to move, make and play together with our children. Our home has recently been featured in The Sunday Times Homes https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/furniture-free-living-rm3rtvgm2
The house consists of a large open plan kitchen and living room, two bedrooms (one with a balcony) and two bathrooms. There is space for up to 6 people. The master bedroom has a large king-size bed. The second bedroom has bunk beds and an office corner with a standing desk (dynamic workstation). We also have a large wool futon that can unroll to sleep two more people.
Our home is in a quiet, peaceful street in Hackney, straight next to the River Lea, and a short walk from Springfield Park and Walthamstow Wetlands, UK's largest urban wetland reserve. If you go for a walk you can spot swans, wild geese, herons and even kingfishers if you are lucky. At the same time, this is an inner London borough with Victoria and Overground line stations only a short walk away. East part of Central London (Shoreditch, Liverpool Street, Old Street, Angel) is within cycling distance.
Our house is very child-friendly with a lot of space to play, lots of toys, art and craft supplies and an indoor climbing frame with a removable pikler triangle, swing and a slide. There are also two beautiful parks just a couple of minutes walking away from our house with children playgrounds, a steam museum with working Victorian machinery, a skate park and an adventure park. So a lot to do with kids.
We can also leave you our bicycles and an electric cargo tricycle. It's beautiful to cycle next to the river and you can also use them to get around instead of using public transport.
Maybe it's worth mentioning that we don't have a TV, so if you don't want to miss watching something make sure to bring a device with which you can stream! There is a large monitor here that you can connect to your laptop. We have fibre broadband, so you won't have any problem with the quality.
