Comments from the owner:
What do you love most about your home?
Stepping into our flat feels like a haven away from the world - situated on the top floor, the flat is incredibly quiet, full of light and beautifully designed by Emil Eve Architects. They designed and reconfigured the flat to make the best possible use of space, with a modern kitchen, bespoke ash shelving, underfloor heating and lots of clever storage. We also love the community of Gibson Gardens and the shared courtyard, gardens and cobbled street; we are friendly with a lot of our neighbours and there is a lovely community feel.
Why are you moving?
We are moving for more space now that our son is rising 2 years old.
What do you love about the area?
We will miss the area hugely. Just around the corner we have the organic food shop Nature and coffee shop Yellow Warbler - where we are on first name terms with the owners. There's also a new juice bar, a Burrito bar and the beautiful Abney Park right on the doorstep. Three minutes walk away is Stoke Newington Church Street filled with quality restaurants, pubs, boutiques and a Whole Foods, plus Clissold Park with duck ponds, tennis courts, a skate park, butterfly dome and large animal enclosure. We have memberships at a great local yoga studio, gym and co-workspace too. The location is well connected to Shoreditch by bus, Liverpool street from Stoke Newington rail station and the Victoria line from Seven Sisters tube.
Retaining a wealth of period charm in this superb gated Victorian mansion block setting, this beautiful two bedroom top floor apartment boasts stylish interiors throughout, tastefully and sympathetically enhanced by Emil Eve Architects to create superb living space with bespoke detailing and maximised use of space and light. Accommodation comprises entrance hall with inbuilt storage and stripped wood flooring (evident through the majority of the property) with under-floor heating, leading into the bright and spacious, open plan reception/kitchen with ample space for both relaxing and dining. The kitchen area comprises a sleek range of matching white fronted wall and base units with work surfaces incorporating inset sink unit, gas hob with overhead extractor and electric oven below, and further space for appliances. There are two well sized bedrooms, plus a stylish family bathroom with white three piece suite and elegant tiling.
The property is enviably located in a much sought after residential road in the heart of Stoke Newington, within easy access of Stoke Newington and Rectory Road stations, as well as numerous regular bus routes. Stoke Newington offers an array of shops and amenities, with Stoke Newington Church Street providing a wonderful array of fashionable bars, cafes and restaurants. The area is well served by excellent local schools and beautiful open spaces including Clissold Park, Abney Park and the Wetlands.
Viewings are highly recommended.
