Set within an attractive Victorian terrace on a popular tree-lined residential road, this architect-designed ground floor garden flat offers period appeal enhanced by stylish interiors and modern open plan living space. Extensively renovated in 2020 and with front and back private patios, this two double-bedroomed flat is ideally located in a popular residential area just a short walk from Stamford Hill station and local amenities, and walking distance to the ever-popular Stoke Newington village.
The layout makes intelligent use of the space with high-spec finishes throughout including engineered hardwood smoked-oak flooring, quartz kitchen worktops, black aluminium-framed patio doors, and fully rewired and plumbed with smart-lighting and heating systems.
Entering through a private entrance, the flat opens into a bright and spacious open plan reception/kitchen with a breakfast bar, cast-iron feature fireplace, and wide front aspect bay, providing ample space for both relaxing and dining. A separate utility cupboard provides space for a washing machine and tumble-dryer and adequate storage.
The layout continues through a full-height sliding door to a corridor through the centre of the property providing access to the rear bedrooms and bathroom, and offering dual-aspect light from the front to the back of the property. Two double bedrooms each provide access to a private patio, the master featuring a separate wardrobe/dressing area and black aluminium framed French doors. The second double bedroom, currently configured as an office/snug with wired broadband connections for both desk and TV, features full-width patio doors and makes an ideal WFH setup or double guest bedroom.
The property is superbly located within easy access of Stamford Hill (Direct trains to London Fields, Bethnal Green & Liverpool Street in 17 minutes), South Tottenham (overground) and Seven Sisters (Victoria Line) stations, as well as numerous regular bus routes all providing excellent cross-London links. The area is well served by an array of shops, cafes and amenities, with nearby Stoke Newington providing a further variety of fashionable bars and restaurants.
Viewings are highly recommended.
Comments from the owner:
Top 3 things you love about your home
The layout - The unique layout offers so much value from the space and means that the flat is really light and open.
The outdoor spaces. The front garden is a real sun trap whilst the back patio is great for a barbecue or evening drink.
The finishes & overall design - Everything has a sense of cohesiveness to it and I was guided to choose quality finishes where it really matters. Design-wise, I love the blend of period features and new architectural design features.
Three things we love about the area...
The green spaces - The area has lots of green space really close - from the small parks nearby to the bigger park spaces of Finsbury and Clissold, the nature reserve at Woodberry Downs, and the wide-open spaces of Hackney Marshes and the river Lea. All within a short walk and they mean that you can properly access nature and feel like you are out of London within a few minutes walk. It can be a real sanctuary.
The local area and great connections - It's a relatively quiet neighbourhood, it feels very safe, and the neighbours genuinely look out for each other. It's also walking distance to some really nice pockets like Stoke Newington for breakfasts, brunches and dinners and the trains from the station at the end of the road get you to London Fields, Bethnal Green and Liverpool street in a matter of minutes. The Victoria line at Seven Sisters is a short walk and provides quick access to central London. (Door to Oxford Circus in 30 minutes). Deliveroo options are pretty great too!
Local amenities - The broadway has all the shops and things you need for day-to-day life. Banks, dry cleaners, 2 supermarkets, wine shops, a great grocery store for fresh fruit & veg, post office, pharmacies, a local friendly fishmonger, and a great bakery that somewhat strangely also does great sushi!
Why are you selling? - I've been here coming up to 5 years and for me, now I'm no longer tied to the office, country life is calling!
What's the area like? - Quiet, safe, really convenient, and nicely tucked away. It's a bit of a hidden gem.
What is parking like? - Residents street parking permits are available, and depending of the emissions of your car can be as little as £10/year.
How busy is the road, is it quiet at night? - We're off the main thoroughfare of Amhurst Park and the road is access-only at night so there's very little traffic passing through. It's quiet from a noise point of safe, but there are often people walking home etc, hence the sense of safety.
I'm currently working from home, how does that work in this property? Luckily fantastic! One of the requirements, when we designed the layout, was a home office space, which I also use as a snug. It means there's a dedicated workspace that is designed for purpose (including desk height plug sockets), but it can also be a double bedroom if you want it, or a guest bedroom with a sofa bed.
What's the internet like? As best as you are going to get. 60MB+ with any of the fibre providers (guaranteed) on a standard package, or up to 1GB on Virgin Media.
What's the boiler like? Brand new. As with everything else (electric wiring, plumbing, radiators, etc) was fitted as part of the renovations that completed in early 2020.
Are we able to do any work/extensions? There's not much you would want or need to do. As a share of freehold property (with only 2 other freehold shareholders), you can pretty much do what you want so long as nobody has any major objections if it affects them.
