Balls Pond Road, N1
Dalston has experienced a high degree of gentrification in recent years, a process accelerated by the East London line extension, now part of London Overground, and the reopening of Dalston Junction railway station, as part of London's successful bid to host the 2012 Olympics. You are just minutes from central London either by public transport or by bike, yet also have the amazing vibe of artisan Dalston on your doorstep.
Just over the road from the station is an extremely tidy little one bed flat, filled with light from the large period style windows, of which the current owner muses: “I love the light! It's a very bright flat and the light in the bedroom in the evening is the most beautiful thing.” It has wooden floorboards throughout and is in immaculate decorative order of white throughout, it's a blank canvas just waiting for someone to put their own stamp on it!
The current owner says: “I love the details of the apartment, the fact that it's a fairly new build, built in a Georgian style. It has the quality of the traditional mixed seamlessly with the practicality of the modern. I also love the quirkiness of the bedroom, the fact that it's in 2 parts, a dressing area and a sleeping area. Lastly, the kitchen cabinets, which were recently added in 2019 and are beautiful, I love the simple elegant style they have.”
Compact an bijou, the layout of this apartment is fantastic, the kitchen/reception/dining room has plenty of storage space too, leading to a hallway and shower/washroom then onto a the quiet quirky-shaped bedroom to the rear of the property. The owner adds:” It has versatility: lively on one side and cosy on the other. In the living room, there's the bustling life of Dalston just outside the window but when you go to the bedroom it's a quiet haven.”
And of the surrounding area: “Weino Bib just opposite is a great little Wine Bar with some lovely produce: cheeses and meats. I also really enjoy Bun Bun Bun on Kingsland High street, their Monkfish Bun is a must to take home on a lazy night. And finally, there are some lovely pubs around, Hunter S is my favourite: the inside is beautiful and the food is really good!”
And your favourite local walk? “Definitely the Regent's Canal! Walk through De Beauvoir Town, down Southgate Road and meet the canal near the Rosemary Branch pub, from there you can walk aside the water to the calmness and tranquility of Victoria Park in one direction or to the buzzing happenings at Coal Drops Yard in King's Cross in the other direction.”
And finally, what will you miss the most about living in the flat. “Its versatility: it's lively on one side and cosy on the other. In the living room, there's the bustling life of Dalston just outside the window but when you go to the bedroom it's a quiet haven.”
