My East London Home: Queensbridge Road E2

News at EastHaus | 07/08/2019


The first thing you notice when you walk into Max's apartment is a sense of light and calm.

The fantastic glazed wall in the main living area gives direct views over leafy Haggerston Park and with bright blue skies and the lush green of the trees it's difficult to believe you are in the heart of East London.

Max grew up in South London but moved East shortly after univeristy to discover what life was like north of the river and has not looked back since.

“I have lived in East London for almost 5 years now” says Max, “I first lived in Dalston; in an amazing 4 bedroom house share and then bought my flat in Hoxton in 2017”

Max was set on moving to Hoxton but it took a while to find the perfect home. "I probably viewed 10+ flats but must have looked at 100's online, I was really specific that I wanted a flat with two large double bedrooms. So many of the flats I viewed had one great room and one tiny one. I also wanted to be near green space so was thrilled to find a flat overlooking Haggerston Park."

The flat does indeed have two good sized double bedrooms and the even bigger advantage of two bathrooms, something not easy to find but a great asset. The master bedroom shown below overlooks the park and has an en suite shower room and WC.

The open plan living space was another plus point for Max, it's a great room for socialising, you can have friends over for dinner and be able to cook and chat to them at the same time, and the views over the park are unbeatable, having the big floor to ceiling windows makes it almost feel like you are in the park!

Another big pull for Max was how conveniently located the flat is "I work in the city, so I can actually walk to work everyday which is priceless".

The flat is located on the border of Zone 1 and 2 so as Max suggests it's perfect for access into the City. It is also really well connected by train, tube, bus and bike with 3 nearby overground stations (Hoxton, Haggerston and Cambridge Heath), you can access the circle line from nearby Bethnal Green and there are a number of well connected bus routes plus a Santander cycle stand right outside the building.

The final aspect Max loves about the location is the social side. "I am so lucky to be within a 15 min walk of about 10 restaurants I love and have ridiculously easy access to the bars of Dalston and the sublime parks of Haggerston and London Fields".

"I genuinely can't think of any area of London that has a pub as good as The Marksman, a restaurant as good as Berber and Q and markets as great as Columbia road and Broadway".

I think we've found one of the area's biggest fans! and while Max may be moving out of his Queensbridge Road flat, he's not going far. 

"My girlfriend and I are getting a place together and we'd like to get a dog, so somewhere with a garden is a must but I'm definately staying in East London and hopefully somewhere close to where I am now.

Max's apartment is currently on the market with EastHaus for Offers In Excess Of: £550,000. Click here for more information or to arrange a viewing.
