Beautiful, bright first-floor one-bed in an architecturally striking block basking in the sun all day to an almost bucolic view of the canal. Lovely surfaces – wooden floors, wooden kitchen, nice new bathroom, plenty of storage. Look at those images – it’s lovely.
Regarding the local area, if you don’t already know it you’re in for a nice surprise – weekend markets within five minutes include two of the best in town – Columbia Road Flower Market and Broadway Market itself, an absolute bastion of local civilization before about eleven, and an impressive melee for the rest of Saturday. Wonderfully pleasant all week. It leads to London Fields Park with it’s open air Lido swimming pool, but for those in the know – Haggerston Park is just across the canal.
Very well placed for transport links, overground stops within a five minute walk include Hoxton, Haggerston and London Fields. Handy for buses too – all the major routes run down Kingsland Road and Hackney Road, again both within 5 mins. Within 10 mins – Dalston, with a whole other host of transport opportunity. And right outside – Regent’s Canal, that cycle super-highway of the East, whipping you away to Greenwich via Mile End and Canary Wharf, or Notting Hill via Islington, King’s Cross and Camden. West End via Islington also a nice ride, spits you into the leafy squares and higgledy hills of Clerkenwell.
Excellent – double glazing throughout.
On street – apply to council.
Excellent security – double glazing throughout.

Haggerston is an area of East London and as part of Shoreditch is also often considered part of London’s East End. In 1965, the Metropolitan Borough of Shoreditch became part of the new London Borough of Hackney. There is an electoral ward called Haggerston within the borough.
In the 1990s a number of the area's more rundown housing estates were refurbished and some disused public buildings were privately converted into gated communities.
In 2010 Haggerston Railway station re-opened, a little to the north of the original station. The new station straddles the northern boundary of Haggerston\Shoreditch, which leaves Kingsland Road at Arbutus Street (originally called Acton Road), runs along Albion Drive and returns to Regent's Canal at Broadway Market.
Excellent. Not only is Kinglsand Road a major artery for buses, but the new tube-linked overground stops right beside this place.
All north-bound busses go to Dalston, on to Stoke Newington, Tottenham or Hackney Central.
South-bound the 149 goes via Liverpool Street to London Bridge; the 243 turns at Old Street and goes via Clerkenwell to TCR; 242 via City to TCR, East London classics 38 and 55 also within walking distance.
