Lothair Road South, London, N4
Guide Price £1,325,000 Freehold
Five bedroom Victorian semi-detached house with south facing rear garden, settled at the Green Lanes end of Frobisher Road on the Harringay Ladder.
A simple pared-back aesthetic complements the elegant proportions and character features of this desirable period home. Internal accommodation is arranged over three levels measuring 1,729 sq ft and is oriented to benefit from an abundance of natural light.
Upon entering, you are greeted by a welcoming Victorian entrance hall with traditional geometric floor tiles underfoot, ornate plaster mouldings above and a beautifully carved wood staircase. Sunlight fills the hallway through a strategically placed skylight window at the very top of the stairs.
The intercommunicating reception rooms on the ground floor are separated by a pair of grand six panel doors and feature tall ceilings with ornate plaster mouldings, stripped wood floors and fireplace, sash bay window to the front with the original colourful glass panels and a glazed door opening onto the rear garden.
The back of the house is bathed in sunlight throughout the day due to its south facing orientation. The kitchen features a bay window to the side and bespoke oak-framed bifold doors to the rear which give way to the mature green garden beyond. The garden benefits from side access and is a little wider than usual because the house is semi-detached.
On the first floor are three good-sized double bedrooms, the largest of which spans the width at the front of the house with bay window featuring the same original coloured glass as on the ground floor below. A comfortably sized family bathroom is positioned on the first floor landing as you would expect.
The double loft conversion at the top of the house is one of the best I've seen on 'The Ladder'; a great result with two large bedrooms on split levels, one with en-suite shower room. Sympathetically constructed with reclaimed floorboards and carved wood balusters, balustrade and spindles in keeping with the traditional Victorian design.
The 'Harringay Ladder' is a collection of Victorian built parallel streets, the placement of which form the shape of a ladder. An increasingly popular area with a friendly and flourishing community and a lively selection of independent shops, cafes and restaurants popping up. Established favourites (all within approximately 5 minutes walk from the house) include 'Cafe Blend' for great coffee and brunch by day and pop-up restaurant in the evening, 'Bun N Bar' for burgers, cocktails and music, and 'Jam In A Jar' the coffee shop with fresh juices which hosts music events at night. For authentic Italian food close by, there’s the locally revered Passione e Tradizione. Then there’s the Harringay Local Store for organic groceries and specialist food supplies. Not forgetting the iconic Salisbury, a Grade II listed Gastro Pub with great food and a fine selection of international beers.
The house is perfectly situated within just 5 minutes walk to the Piccadilly Line Zone 3 Underground Station at Turnpike Lane. Alternatively, Hornsey Train Station is within half a mile (11 minutes walk) for frequent trains to Finsbury Park, Kings Cross, Old Street and Moorgate. And you’re almost certainly guaranteed a place for the kids at North Harringay primary school with its rapidly shrinking catchment area!
