This fast-gentrifying neighbourhood has acquired “village” status due to the cluster of independent shops, bars and eateries that have sprouted up. Who would have guessed The Ginger Pig butchers and designer fashion boutiques would pop up here in the Hackney heartland?
Being just far enough away from the hard urban face of Stratford but close enough to benefit from all the new amenities and infrastructure resulting from the 2012 Olympics, this area is attracting young singles, couples and families.
A new-build block of eight flats at 129 Cadogan Terrace backs on to Hertford Union Canal, which cuts through the area. The homes have up to three bedrooms and generous-size terraces. There is on-site parking, too.
Completion is due in spring 2017. Prices from £450,000. Call Stirling Ackroyd on 020 7749 3807.
