Lived there ....... loved it - and clissold park has just been rejuvenated .... i miss church street! (moved out as needed some more space ....... like adair); the shakespeare pub; the little coffee shops all over the neighbourhood ....... which street is the house?
Thanks Adair, that's good to hear. I guess for me it's a mental adjustment about moving from Islington to Hackney !!
I am currently in a lovely quiet street that feels quite safe. The new street seems nice, very typical with late Victorian terrace houses. What I am most concerned about is safety, and also whether I am likely to have horrible/noisy neighbours.... (but I guess you can get there anywhere)
I know, but I Stokey really is great and loads to do with children and nice community feel. It's the poshest bit of Hackney! We really loved it there and still really accessible to Highbury for all the nice things there as well.
Lovely road, lovely area, much nicer than Islington imo, and I have lived here for decades and never worried about safety. If you are really worried about noise go and sit outside the house in the evening? Or knock on the neighbours' doors and ask?
