Couple looking for 1 bed to treat like a home

Hi there,
We are a professional couple in our late 20s looking for a one bed flat in Homerton/Clapton/Victoria Park/Dalston – anywhere in Hackney really! etc Ideally from early October, but we could be flexible

It would be fantastic to find somewhere that we could care for like it was our own home, and stay for a while – we are especially keen on gardening.

It would be great to let through a private landlord to avoid giving silly amounts of money going to a letting agent.

Budget is about 1200pcm

would love to hear of anything suitable.
