Seven Sisters Road, London, N4
This unique one bedroom apartment is converted from the ground floor of a grand Victorian villa, one of the many architectural delights that form the magnificent streetscape surrounding the Clyde Circus conservation area in Seven Sisters.
The elegant proportions of this grand period property are preserved; with high ceilings and impressive arched sash windows which flood the interior with natural light. An open plan kitchen living room provides plenty of space for living and dining and there’s access to communal gardens at the front and back to spill outside in the summer months. The current architect owner has made great use of the space with clever integrated furniture, providing plenty of useful storage and a foldaway desk for flexible home working.
With elegant period housing stock, acres of parkland and excellent transport links, it comes as no surprise that Tottenham and Seven Sisters is blossoming, and a unique, diverse and friendly community is welcoming newcomers. An innovative selection of shops, restaurants and cafes have recently opened up. Established favourites include True Craft for fresh local draught beers paired with sourdough pizza, The High Cross micro-pub, Sushi Heads which needs no explanation. Cafe Lemon’s breakfast, lunch and brunch menu is now supplemented with dinner on three evenings, while lively Bom Pecado serves Portuguese home cooking and pastries. Blighty Cafe serves coffee and brunch, as does Craving Coffee by day plus a social bar hosting street food pop-up’s in the evenings. The Palm on Philip Lane opened to rave reviews in 2019 and another recent addition to the scene is Ten to One Cocktail Bar also on Philip Lane. Oh, and there's Moloko Coffee conveniently located within Seven Sisters Station ticket hall. Every Sunday from 11-4 is the Tottenham Green Farmers Market for street food, artisanal baked goods and organic produce. Located opposite the green is the Bernie Grant Arts Centre, with a cultural programme including film, dance, theatre, exhibitions, gigs and debate.
Seven Sisters Station is a comfortable ten minute walking distance. From there you can get the Victoria Line to Kings Cross in three stops or Oxford Circus in six. The Overground trains will take you to Liverpool Street in 20 minutes and Stansted Airport in just 38. Cycling into Central London couldn't be easier; the Cycle Superhighway (CS1) extends from Tottenham High Road to Liverpool Street, via Stoke Newington and Hackney. A major redevelopment of the station is underway as the historic profile of Tottenham is currently being rewritten.
“The tall ceilings and south facing aspect are the main features that originally drew me to this property and really will be missed.
The ceilings measure at just over 3m high and the traditional arched windows go right to the top which makes the apartment spacious and airy with plenty of sun and natural light throughout the day and some epic sunsets.
The communal hallway offers plenty of bicycle storage and the large communal gardens to front and back are a great asset to the property. The deep front garden provides a comfortable set-back from the street and a verdant outlook from the apartment.
The bedroom was recently fitted-out with bespoke birch ply integrated wardrobes, shelving and plenty of high-level storage. The addition of a foldaway desk is perfect as a flexible working space.
A brand new boiler was recently installed making the flat warm and cozy during the winter months. A brand new integrated fridge freezer has also been added in the kitchen.
Since moving here in 2015, the surrounding area has visibly changed. New pubs, bars and restaurants are popping up all the time and the nearby parks and canal are perfect for the daily exercise routine. Seven sisters station is under 10 minutes’ walk away, perfect for getting across London quickly, with central London 30 mins from the door, Stanstead or Gatwick can be reached within the hour.”
