With its wildflower meadow and park life on your doorstep, Artillery house is directly facing Victoria Park - the largest public owned park in London. Ducks and swans meander down the stream in front of the house. The calm and serenity of the apartment might make you want to linger at home, but you are just 20mins away from Brick Lane and Whitechapel and 40mins away from Oxford Street in the center of town. The Olympic park is in view and the area is undergoing a quiet regeneration.
The apartment contains 2 bedrooms with double beds - there is also a single fold down bed that can be put in the living room. Bedroom one contains a double and the second bedroom has a smaller double. The bathroom is off the hallway and has a great big shower and a fold down seat for those who need to rest during their wash. The kitchen is big and you can open out the dining table for 4 to 6 people. The serene view would make you want to do the dishes by hand but there is a dishwasher.
The living room has a treat in store - the wonderful views of Victoria Park, the stream going by and the lovely canal bike lanes.
Within Victoria Park there is Victoria village - a picturesque street with coffee shops and restaurants that you can walk to from the flat.
Several choices of restaurants are within walking distance, a food market a few steps away with fresh produce 3 days a week. The famous Columbia road flower market and Brick Lane are a bus ride away too.
The owners own two West Highland White terriers who stay in the flat when they are in London with their owners.
