This is a really cosy flat that's full of character. It's located on a quiet street in Shoreditch- an area that's famous for its cafes, bars and restaurants. It's been my home for years, and I hope you'll make yourself at home too!
I'm an artist working with architecture, and I've converted my living room into my studio space for when I'm working from home. This means that the flat consists of:
-one guest bedroom
-the studio room (this can either be left as it is, or converted into a second bedroom with a proper double mattress)
(-my bedroom (I keep this locked while I'm away))
Because I use what was the sitting room as my studio, there's no sofa or TV in the flat. However, the big table is perfect to work at and allows room to have lots of friends over for dinner- something I love doing!
Disponible para huéspedes
If you're booking the flat for two people, I'll leave the table set out in the studio room. Or, if you'd prefer to stay as four people, the studio room makes a self-contained double bedroom. It's a squeeze to get four people round the kitchen table, but it is possible!
Atención a los huéspedes
I'll be in Italy for the period that I'm letting my flat, but my sister and best friend live nearby and will be available to help if you have any problems at all.
Otros aspectos destacables
For some reason the plumber installed the bath rather high off the floor. This is no problem for me as I'm really tall, but if you have mobility issues or are shorter than average you might want to use the kick-stool that lives in my hall. The same is true of the kitchen- most of the everyday items are on the low shelves, but you might need to use the stool if you'd like to use the pasta maker!
The flat is on the third floor, and there's no lift.
I've lived in the flat for nine years, and I love it very much. I hope you will too! I've loved feeling at home in other Air BnB flats I've stayed in over the last few years, and I very much hope you'll enjoy feeling at home here too. The only house rules are:
-no smoking inside the flat. There's a courtyard inside the building that's a good place to smoke.
-no loud music, and definitely no parties! This is a Victorian building, and sound travels easily between the floors. The most important thing is that guests don't upset my neighbours. Shoreditch (and East London generally) is a great area to party in, as there are so many brilliant late-night venues- so please keep any late-night action out there and not in the flat!
