Fantastic location in a hip and culturally diverse area of London. In the immediate area is Roman road market and Victoria park. Take the no 8 bus towards Hoxton and the lively local street markets of Columbia Road flower market, Brick Lane, Broadway Market, Spitalfields and Pettycoat Lane. Much loved by artists and city financiers alike the area offers vibrant restaurants, music venues, bars and night life as well as renowned galleries and museums - the Cube and Geffrye Museum being perhaps best known.
Alternatively take a leisurely stroll through the City to St Pauls, over the Millennium Bridge to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and have some lunch at The Tate Modern. Or head West and wonder around antique Bloomsbury, explore the wonderful treasures of the British Museum and pop in at one of the four Inns of Court to get a feel for medieval London. If you are feeling energetic there are many cycle paths along the canals which are great for poodling around on a lazy Sunday with a pit stop at the local pub.
Got to do some work? The apartment is just 20 minutes away from the financial district and Liverpool Street. There are excellent train connections plus 24hr bus links for easy access to Central London.
Your choices are endless as the area truly has something for everyone.
The area is multi-coloured - like the house! With a rich mix of culture, from the East-enders, English, Carribeans, Turkish, Greeks, Indians, Pakistani, Bengali, French, Spanish, Brazilian, Polish...the list goes on.....
Local shops - 30 seconds away! For a bigger shop I prefer to order on-line and have groceries delivered.
Neighbours - Make-up artists, Fashion designers, Graphic designers. Quiet

I travel frequently so I have a housekeeper that takes care of the house. I'm always available on email or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) .
Please respect my neighbours, no late parties.
Please no spray on orange tans as in the past it stains all my bed linen!!
The wood surface in the kitchen no candles or hot things directly onto the wood (can damage easily) -
I spent thousands installing the pebbled Balinese floors, please appreciate the reflexology and 'touching the earth' - please take off your shoes on the middle and top floor. You'll appreciate the space more as it will not have the energy of the streets of London in your sleeping areas. Internet code: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)cd

I've been travelling and working around the world since I was 15. I picked up my first hammer as a teenager and built 28 stables over a 10 year period. Fascinated by builders and why things never went according to plan. I dreamed of building a city house, a beach house and a mountain retreat. 20 years later, with will power and passion for making things, the dream became a reality.
Britain – London. The concept was born in 1999, I analyzed how the space we occupy effects our mind, body and spirit. It was an eco build with natural paints, plasters insulation, light therapy (happy-shower), magnetic mattresses and more. The full analysis of how to create a healthy home. 7 years later appearing on the Property Ladder tv show.
Brazil – Minas Gerais. Concept was to create a romantic self service mini spa using hot and cold therapy. I used the pro-type of Britain and added a grand fireplace, sauna and Japanese wooden bath.
Bali – Bingin Beach. This run down Warung choose me. It’s the hardest project I have ever undertaken. You have to be crazy with passion to build at the bottom of a cliff, right in front of the ocean. I had to let go of everything I knew, master how to build in a bikini with muslim/hindu builders, and pray to the Building Gods. The funniest moment, was swimming across the ocean with a water tank, as it was too big to bring down the path. I learnt how to let-it-b.
I love off the beaten track travel and all my properties provide this. They are handmade with love. They have a personality, a warmth and are all unique. They are built with deep thought, and a continual play/experimentation of materials. They are not perfect, just a playful purr-fect!
I have experienced Burning man festival many times, my style of hosting is similar - Self-reliance - please read the instruction manual. Self expression - be free to express yourself in the space, yes, you can move the furniture about. Leave no trace - be mindful of the rubbish - recycle, reduce, reuse. My motto in life, "where there is a will there is a way....."
