On the doorstep of Dalston, this expansive, two-bedroom apartment is a lesson in pared-back design. It is a truly outstanding home.

Cecilia Road, Dalston, 2 Bed. Flat


Under offer


We have loved living in our flat! Its location in the heart of Dalston is great, with amazing restaurants, cafés, and pubs all within 200 yards of our door. It is also wonderful to be within walking distance of Hackney Downs, London Fields, and the brilliant Wilton Way with its cafés and bakeries.

The kitchen gets the morning light, and the double doors out onto the balcony mean we are often out there for breakfast, as well as evening meals and BBQs in the spring and summer. The trees at the back make it feel like living within a mini forest––we hear birdsong throughout the year! The living room catches the afternoon and evening sun. Upstairs, we love the big bedroom with its fitted wardrobes, and the bathroom is perfect for a relaxing bath and letting go of the stresses of the day.


While we strive to create true-to-life photographs, floor plans and descriptions, our marketing material is only a guide. Purchasers should always visit in person, ask relevant questions and triple-check details. Brickworks takes our duty of care incredibly seriously and takes all reasonable steps to ensure all presented information is correct. However, we sometimes rely on the accuracy of the information provided to us by the seller and others. Also, please note that we often round up/down total floor plan measurements and/or use approximate distances.


Set over the top two floors of a Victorian terrace, this home has an ageless appeal thanks to the balance of form and function. The current owners have focused on using natural materials such as bespoke plywood kitchen units and oak floorboards. There's also a sense of tranquillity due to light and space and a lovely integration with nature––open the doors to the balcony and enjoy the morning sun, overlooking mature trees that provide privacy and a view of the changing seasons.

The living space continues the simple yet beautiful aesthetic, with handy built-in units and a convenient nook for an office. Upstairs, both bedrooms are in keeping with the clean lines, neutral decor, and views of the treetops. The bathroom is all square-tile minimalism but has a separate rainfall shower and bath, both with Vola fittings for maximum indulgence.

Cecilia Road is a charming street in one of East London's most appealing neighbourhoods. Just down the road are Dalston and London Fields, with more eateries, coffee shops, and night spots than you can shake a stick at. A bit further beyond is Stoke Newington Church Street, which is lined with stellar, independent stores. And when you need it, quiet calm is moments away––wander down to Hackney Downs Park, Clissold Park, London Fields, or the wilds of Hackney Marshes.

1 Melo

As you would expect, Melo serves excellent coffee (Allpress beans), but that is only the hook to get you inside. What keeps you coming back are their seriously delicious plates, tempting toasties and a smorgasbord of–– frankly––irresistible sweet treats. With a focus on locally sourced ingredients, including vegan and gluten-free options, this place is a gem.

2 Oren

Opened in October 2019, chef Oded Oren serves up Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern inspired small-plates & pillowy pittas within the unassuming form of a neighbourhood restaurant. The food is incredible.

3 Ruby’s

A retro cinema sign above the entrance sets the scene for this cosy underground cocktail bar and lounge. Exposed brickwork and soft lighting create a perfect setting for date night, the martinis are all excellent and the Manhattan is a true classic.

4 Rio Cinema

This independent “art deco picture palace” has a storied history, but its real appeal is arthouse and family-friendly fare in a rare and wonderful setting. Come for the film, stay for the new whisky bar, situated conveniently next to Screen 2.

5 Dusty Knuckle

A Dalston institution for bread, pastries and pizza, Dustry Knuckle doesn't just serve up good bread (although it is delicious). It is also an institute for positive change that helps at-risk young people, including young offenders, transform their lives through training and mentorship.
