Selsea Place, Stoke Newington, 3. Bed Flat
THE OWNERS SAY
We really love our flat. The big windows and terrace make it feel very bright and welcoming. The triple glazed windows has meant it’s totally soundproofed and was built to a high standard. Our neighbours are lovely and always around to help when needed.
The location in Dalston is great, as it’s a short walk to all our favourite places. We often enjoy grabbing a coffee and a loaf of bread from Brunswick East in Hackney Downs or trying out the latest restaurant to pop up on Kingsland Road. We’ve loved the proximity to so many areas like De Beauvoir (and its great pubs), Stoke Newington, London Fields and Victoria Park.
An entirely fresh, contemporary space, with all the convenience and functionality you'd expect from a brand-new build, but with plenty of personality, too. The open-plan living room/kitchen is spacious and inviting, and the large terrace makes it feel even sunnier, all year round. Two of the bedrooms have en suite bathroom, and the smaller one makes for a great home office. The rooms come off a central hallway, so there's a buffer between communal and private spaces—ideal for families or flatmates. And the apartment benefits from a calming colour palette that catches the light and brightens the mood.
The flat is only moments from Dalston Junction Overground station, with service to Liverpool Street in 25 minutes. Indie shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs await along Stoke Newington Road all the way to Regent's Canal. Bijou Butterfield Green is close by, as is Hackney Downs, so a bit of green space and fresh air is always within reach.

Explore North London
1 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.
2 Brunswick East
This Aussie-run cafe has an inventive, delicious brunch menu. Doors open at 8 a.m., so you can grab a coffee and a tasty Dusty Knuckle Bakery pastry on the way to work, but food is served all day long.
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 Arcola Theatre
Make the most of Dalston's cultural canvas by visiting the renowned, community-focused theatre (or the bar of course, which is equally worth a trip).
5 Dalston Eastern Curve Garden
Planted atop what was once the old Eastern Curve Railway line, this community garden is an oasis of green amongst the buzz. With a café kiosk, pizza oven and cosy greenhouse (complete with woodburning stove), it’s a great place to eat, drink and gather—casually or at events ranging from birdwatching and candle-making workshops to festive season singalongs.
