Having a chat with... Dominie

Who better to tell you why they love living at East Wick & Sweetwater than from a resident who rents here?

We caught up with Dominie, who recently moved into her one-bedroom flat, to chat through her reasonings for choosing East Wick & Sweetwater for her new home, and what she loves about the area.

What made you decide to move and choose to rent at East Wick & Sweetwater?

I had lived in Shoreditch for three years in a flat share – I loved the whole experience but since working from home has become the norm for most, I decided I wanted to live on my own to ensure space for a desk and somewhere I felt I could really call home. I wasn’t originally looking at new builds, thinking they would be too expensive. However, when I found the flat at East Wick and Sweetwater, I couldn’t believe my luck. I booked a viewing straight away and was sold from the moment I saw it.

What is it that you love most about your new home?

The size of the flat is fantastic; I love the high-quality specification of the interiors and all the little touches like the fitted appliances, as it’s made moving in so much easier to have everything already in place. The balcony is such a treat I have never had any private outdoor space and am revelling in the evening sun. I can’t wait to enjoy sunny evenings out there this summer!

What do you like about the area?

I just love the surrounding area, it has so much to offer in my opinion you couldn’t live in a better place. I can step out of my door and find bars, restaurants, breakfast clubs and yoga studios all within a moments’ walk; it’s so exciting having so much on my doorstep the vibe is constantly buzzing. I also have access to plenty of green spaces, which is great as I love running.

Hackney is such a creative and buzzing area; I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. Hopefully I will be able to buy in the future and I absolutely would purchase at the development.
