A little green hiding place in East London, this vintage-lovers paradise manages to mix thrift shop finds with high-end necessities. It’s a sweet spot that feels homely but certainly doesn’t scrimp on quality or comfort. You’ll be sharing the space with an impressive collection of houseplants, but that’s part of its charm. We love the well-equipped kitchen in miniature and the deep, dark blue of the Victorian bathroom, complete with a claw foot bath for taking a long soak. Pop on the Bluetooth Marshall amp or record player, and enjoy some time away from the busy streets of the capital. Outside, there’s a small but no-less-welcome terrace, which brings a tiny bit of nature into the breathable living space. Located in a lively and interesting part of the city, with the weekly Chatsworth Road Market on your doorstep, there’s plenty to explore, including a host of indy shops and eateries. And it’s only a ten-minute walk to Homerton overground station or twenty minutes to Hackney Central if you fancy seeing what else London has to offer.
Home truths: *There is currently no shower curtain in the bathroom, but extra towels are provided for the floor
*There is a wine shop/bar next door to this home, and music can be heard in the bedroom at times (Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights), but not from the living area when the door is pulled closed
*This home is on a high street, with a weekly street market every Sunday from 11am to 4pm, so expect there to be some noise then
*Visitor permits costing £4.50 per day are needed for the street parking outside – ask your host when booking if you'd like a parking pass
*The entrance to the home is a bit hard to find - there is no number on the door
