Malvern Road

Hackney, East London


Decidedly different

This family home in Hackney contains oddities and curiosities. There’s a Chesterfield sofa at one end of the sitting room – to the right of the entrance – and a white Eames chair at the other. You’ll find a diner-style banquette in the kitchen, straight ahead, and mounted on the wall, a neon light courtesy of Gods Own Junkyard. At the end of the garden is a summerhouse with a sofabed and a working fireplace.

A Pop Art canvas commands the second sitting room, downstairs, which has a piano, a breakfast bar and a wall-mounted unicorn’s head. There’s another large dining table on the left, as well as French doors leading to a sunken patio. The second bedroom, to the right, is a double, with natural green colours and an ensuite with a freestanding tin bath. On the first floor is the nursery (with a crib), and up a further flight of steps you’ll discover the office and the bathroom, before coming to the master bedroom, a stylish space with period furniture, a feature wall painted with ferns, and a super king bed.

Home truths

This home doesn't have air conditioning. Between June and September, we'll place fans in each bedroom. Please let us know if you'd like fans outside the summer period.

Since the onefinestay photoshoot the homeowner has added an additional bedroom with a child size bed in. We will be taking photographs soon.

The shower on the top floor does not have a door.

This home is spread over three floors with no internal elevator.

Check-in and check-out. We’ll meet you at the home at your convenience any time after 4PM on your arrival date, and our standard check-out time is 11AM. Early check-in and late check-out can be arranged in advance, subject to availability and a charge.

Lead guest. The lead guest must be at least 25 years of age.

I.D. check and card authorisation. When you arrive we’ll check the lead guest’s I.D. and secure a £1,000 hold on a credit or debit card which will be released once we confirm no damage was caused during your stay.

Smoking. Guests are not permitted to smoke inside any onefinestay home.

Cleaning. We carefully clean and prepare each home before you arrive and after you depart, and for stays longer than seven days we provide a complimentary weekly Housekeeping service. More frequent Housekeeping visits can be arranged on request, subject to availability and a charge.
