Why move to Hackney?

For many people, Hackney is the dream London destination, and it’s not difficult to see why.  Now one of the most fashionable postcodes, the area offers diversity and vibrancy.  Although there have been high levels of gentrification over the past ten years, Hackney retains an authentic feel.

The 2012 Olympics gave the area a major boost, with better transport links, upgraded housing and new schools, leading to an influx of new gastro-pubs, bars and restaurants.

If you are looking for an estate agent in Hackney, please pop into our office on Mare Street.  We are both a lettings agent and sales agent for the Hackney area, and will be happy to help you.

 

 

A short history

In the 16th century, Hackney was a cluster of villages surrounded by meadows, frequented by the upper crust for holidays and hunting.  Of these Tudor mansions, only one survives: Sutton House.  The National Trust restored the house from a squat to its original splendour and you can visit today.

By the 18th century, Hackney was home to the middle-class elite, including East India Company directors and former mayors of London, who built themselves elegant, neo-classical townhouses.

As the population surged to nearly 200,000 by the 20th century, Hackney became part of the city and the wealthier moved elsewhere.  The aftermath of the Second World War led to the area becoming a focus for social housing experiments.  What remains today is an ever-changing and diverse social and cultural mix.

 

Property

 

Although prices have increased in recent years, Hackney still provides better value than, for example, neighbouring Islington.  Period terraced houses and canal-side apartments are highly sought after, but there is also a choice of more accessible properties.

If you are interested in putting your house on the market, our Sales Agents will be pleased to arrange a home valuation.  Those looking to purchase property in Hackney can discuss their needs with our local experts and arrange viewings at suitable properties.  Alternatively, if you are a Landlord considering letting your property, or you are looking to rent within the Hackney area, our Lettings Agents are on hand to support you.

Transport links

Hackney doesn’t have an Underground stop but Hackney Central and Hackney Downs Station are part of the London Overground’s East London line, providing connections to Docklands and the West End, with Liverpool Street a mere ten minutes away.

 

Shopping, eating and drinking

There’s no shortage of opportunities to shop in Hackney. Both Shoreditch High Street and Westfield are a short hop on the train.  Broadway Market is one of the best in London, running from London Fields to Regent’s Canal.  On Saturdays local artisan producers showcase their best organic meats, fish, bread, fruits and veg and much more, including vintage and original clothing.

In recent years, the streets of Hackney have filled with cocktail bars, coffee bars, gastro-pubs, galleries and florists.  You can find any cuisine you desire, from a traditional roast dinner to a meal in a cutting-edge Bistro.

 

Things to do

Victoria Park is one of London’s oldest parks.  Unwind by a fountain or wander through the traditional English gardens.

One of London’s iconic venues, the Hackney Empire was built in 1901 and has since been through a number of identity changes.  From the days of music hall, when the likes of Charlie Chaplin, WC Fields, Stan Laurel and Marie Lloyd performed, the Empire has attracted big names.  Comedians include Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Harry Hill, John Cleese, Paul Merton and Lenny Henry, and Ralph Fiennes played Hamlet to Francesca Annis’s Gertrude in 1995.  These days you can enjoy an exceptional mix of theatre, dance acts, live music and comedy.  

On a sunny day, there’s no better place than the London Fields Lido, an Olympic-sized, heated outdoor swimming pool, with space for sunbathing.

And of course, Hackney is in an enviable position close to the London Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at Stratford, now home to the West Ham Football Club.

Excellent service for both sale and purchase of properties

We have been so impressed by Kings Group Hackney. They have helped us sell our flat and buy our house. We believe we got a good price for the sale of our flat and we had offers only a few weeks into viewings. Our Sales Negotiator Terry Hartley has been amazing. He has always been at the end of the phone when we needed him and has helped liaise between everyone. As everyone knows, buying a house is really stressful but Terry has been cool and calm when we needed him to be! Jack Shorten, the Sales Manager has also been fantastic. He has worked tirelessly to keep the chain together. There were times when the whole thing could have fallen apart but thanks to Jack, he managed to keep everything on track. One thing we have been so impressed with is the communication from Kings. They keep you updated throughout and always return your calls! I couldn't recommend them more. Thank you guys.

Response from Kings Group

Good Morning,

Great to hear your experience with our Hackney branch was so positive. Thank you for your patience and assistance throughout the sale. We wish you all the best.

What a mighty God that we serve

Thanks for all your good work, both staff and management. I am glad that I choose your company to both sell my present home and purchase my new home.

But I have to say that my greatest support came from the all mighty God who love and care for me in such a great way.

All praise to him.
