Riverside House | London | N4
Riverside House | London | N4
An end of terrace Victorian riverside home with separate lower ground flat, situated mid-way up the desirable Haringey Ladder. This family home, developed like much of the ladder between 1880-1900 from former farming countryside, was built to house the rising middle class office workers commuting into the City.
Traditional in design, but starkly different in style, this property commands a rare canal facing view, and you can see water from every window in the house.
As you enter the property through a solid oak door, a long corridor welcomes you into a front sitting room with a leafy view over the street and canal.
Adjoining is bedroom one to the ground level with a lovely view over the garden and side return. Up the first flight of stairs, you pass a family bathroom and a separate annexe, perfect for a study.
Entering the kitchen, the volume of light from the floor-to-ceiling windows give you a calm view of water, blue skies and green to enjoy your meals. Access to the garden is to the rear stairs, initially elevated on a platform above the surrounding gardens so you are not overlooked, but have an uninterrupted view down the line of terraces.
The garden wraps around the side return and has a lovely patch of grass, currently arranged around a fire-pit. There is also a patio area, which has direct access into the downstairs flat (not formally demised as a separate property).
Upstairs, two more bedrooms, with the present principle bedroom enveloping into the generous bay window.
Up onto the top floor is the final space, which would make a fantastic top floor bedroom with ensuite. The turret seen from street level has the potential to be made into something really special.
At basement level, you have a huge dry storage space with plenty of scope for development, as another floor to the house.
Opposite here you have the other entrance into the internal access to the flat, with bedroom, reception and separate kitchen & bathroom to the rear, all with a view of the garden.
