Luke our oldest will finish school in summer 2023 and will start university in the autumn. Lena loves art and sport, in particular rowing and Maya loves any sport and creating and building things. We love the outdoors, swimming, hiking, water sports, skiing but equally love going to museums, galleries, theatre, concerts and generally discovering new places.

Beskrivning av hemmet vi erbjuda att byta bort
Our much-loved Victorian family home is situated in vibrant Hackney. Chatsworth Road with its unique Art Deco cinema and weekly Sunday street market is only 2 min walk away. Here you can also find independent shops, cafes, restaurants, delis and a variety of food shops.
We particularly love this area for its abundance of green spaces and beautiful parks. The Olympic Park is only a short walk away with more trendy bars and restaurants. You can jog, walk and cycle for hours along the Lea towpath totally car free.
The Overground at Homerton takes you quickly into central London and there a plenty of buses nearby.
We moved into our house a year ago (2021) and particularly love our big family kitchen and open plan living space. In summer the kitchen opens out into the garden for barbeques and meals al fresco.
There are four bedrooms:
Master bedroom with super king-size bed
Bedroom 2: single bed
Bedroom 3: single bed
Bedroom 4: single bed with ensuite bathroom (with bathtub and shower)
There is also a double sleep sofa in the kitchen if needed.
We have a main bathroom with bath and shower and a second bathroom (the ensuite in bedroom 4) plus the separate WC on the ground floor.
We don’t have a car but access to 5 bicycles can be included.

Beskrivning av vårt grannskap och omgivning
Our neighbourhood of Clapton is very family friendly. Chatsworth Road with its famous Sunday street market and beautiful independent cinema (the Castle cinema), plenty of restaurants, cafes and independent shops is less than 2 minutes on foot from our house. We are surrounded by green spaces, with the Hackney Marshes and Victoria Park a short stroll away. The Lea river towpath takes you in 20 minutes on foot to the Olympic Park and Hackney Wick with its vibrant restaurant, cafe and nightlife scene. On the towpath you can walk, jog and cycle for miles without crossing a road all the way to the Thames. Hackney has a plethora of famous markets including Broadway Market and Columbia Road Flower Market. The Hackney Empire, described as the most beautiful theatre in London by the Guardian newspaper, is 15 minutes by foot. The London Overground brings you quickly into central London (30 min) and the nearest underground (Stratford, Mile End or Bethnal Green) are a short bus ride away.
