An immaculate five-bedroom Victorian house and garden positioned midway along Seymour Road, one of the quietest and most sought after of a collection of parallel streets that form the 'Harringay Ladder'.
Thoughtfully renovated by the current owners with homage to the original character of the house to provide a tasteful and sophisticated modern period family home. Internal accommodation is arranged over three levels and provides over 1,700 sq. ft of living space plus storage space in the basement and eaves.
The classical Victorian eight panel front door with original stained-glass panes gives way to a welcoming entrance hall complete with geometric patterned encaustic tiles, ornate plaster corbels and a beautiful Victorian staircase with carved wood balusters, balustrade and spindles.
Original four panel doors provide access to the double reception room. Natural light pours in through the large bay windows at the front and tall French doors to the rear. Waxed Victorian pine floorboards complete the look with two fireplaces and plaster ceiling mouldings above. It’s worth noting that the same original pine boards are in situ throughout the first floor of the house and are in good condition.
The clean lines and minimal design of the all-white kitchen complement the elegant Victorian features of this magnificent 24ft kitchen-breakfast room with bay window to the side and tall French doors that open onto York stone patio for outdoor dining overlooking the beautifully manicured rear garden.
On the first floor are three large double bedrooms, one of which spans the width at the front of the house with bay window. Off the landing is a well-designed family bathroom with heated marble floor underfoot.
Sympathetically constructed with carved wood balusters, balustrade and spindles in keeping with the traditional Victorian design, an ambitious roof extension now provides two additional bedrooms and a shower room/wc. Other than the basement, additional storage space is provided in the alcoves and eves of both loft rooms and a wall of built in wardrobes to the master; the turret forms a cute snug at the front.
The 'Harringay Ladder' is popular due to its beautiful Victorian built terraces and the Piccadilly Line tube stations at either end. Thereupon, a friendly community has blossomed, and a burgeoning selection of independent shops, cafes and restaurants have recently appeared along Green Lanes. Established favourites include Music and Beans coffee shop, Cafe Blend for great coffee and brunch by day and pop-up restaurant in the evening, Bun N Bar for burgers, cocktails and live music, and Jam In A Jar for brunch and fresh juices which also hosts music events in the evenings. There’s also the iconic Grade II Listed Salisbury Pub with its great selection of international beers and the Harringay Local Store for speciality foods and organic groceries.
Transport links are excellent; the property is equidistant from Turnpike Lane and Manor House on the Piccadilly Line. You also have Harringay or Hornsey Train Stations which provide direct access to Finsbury Park, Kings Cross, Old Street and Moorgate.
Seymour Road is in the catchment area for South Harringay School but is also close enough to North Harringay School. There are endless kids’ activities and community groups for those with young families.
