Behind a handsome, if unremarkable, townhouse facade lies an interior that is bright and beautiful in equal measures. The living room has the feel of a contemporary art gallery, with high ceilings, parquet flooring and striking pieces on the wall. Although saying that, we haven't been to a gallery with such cute pastel-pink, tufted furnishings. The kitchen is just as striking, thanks to the large windows, the flurry of house plants and handsome marble surfaces. As well as letting in copious amounts of natural light, the French door also leads out to a small garden space with some seating for warm evenings. Upstairs, the bedrooms are both large and equipped with regal beds, while there's even a balcony space looking out over the rooftops of East London and the distant skyscrapers in The City. However, you don't even have to go far to find things to do in the neighbourhood. Just around the corner, there's the Castle Cinema — an Art Deco building reopened after a local crowdfunding campaign — and Chatsworth Market, which runs every Sunday with a great range of independent stalls.
Home truths: *The building is spread across three storeys, so it might not be suitable for guests with reduced mobility
*The host requests that no shoes be worn inside the house
*Similarly, the marble kitchen surface requires care — it must be cleaned immediately with a damp cloth only, and no wine, coffee, tea, juice or anything acidic should be left on it
