Architecture and property
Set within one of the most thriving North London neighbourhoods, this semi-detached late-Victorian townhouse in Stoke Newington unfolds over three floors. Retaining all the original features and artfully redesigned and curated by the present owners, it’s a truly wonderful family home.

The entrance is set back from the road, up through a wide Victorian doorway. A bright gilded hallway leads into a double reception finished in dark hues, with splashes of gold and white thrown in to highlight all the heritage,

Downstairs, a huge dining kitchen fills the entire lower floor, providing a great space to wine, dine, and entertain. All appliances are built-in, with a gas hob, electric fan oven, fridge/freezer, separate trunk freezer, dishwasher, washing machine & dryer located in an adjacent utility room. There is direct access out to the garden from here, with a wonderful west-facing aspect, meaning sunny afternoons into evenings.

Up on the first floor, the first of four bedrooms spreads out across the entire front of the house complete with built-in wardrobes and a leafy view over Albion Road. The second bedroom is behind, complete with built-in storage and a lovely view over the surrounding terraces and rear garden. The far rear bedroom has a fantastic, exposed brick chimney breast and shelving. All the bedrooms on this floor have original fireplaces, thresholds and cornicing.

The primary bedroom suite, created with a loft conversion by the present owners, occupies the top floor and is textured in pastel pinks, with heaps of storage and a panoramic view of the surrounding urban landscape, while the private bathroom has a large skylight above the tub for a relaxing and romantic soak.

Back down on the ground, the rear garden also has a side access, and there’s a small, low-maintenance front garden with a separate entrance to the lower ground floor.

The Area
Stoke Newington & Newington Green were originally villages serving the fields of London, before being engulfed by the spread of urbanisation. In the late 1800s the wider area was smoggy, dank and overcrowded, and building these terraces to middle-class standards provided the premium qualities of natural light, air and space, which still form the basis of every buyer’s wishlist today. In short, a Victorian townhouse in Stoke Newington was built to last.

Stoke Newington is a thriving neighbourhood, famous through the latter part of the 20th century for bohemian hangouts and political radicals. Life is centred around Stoke Newington Church Street, which teems with pubs, eateries, independent shops, and coffee shops. Albion Road is at the heart of it all.

Out and About
There are dozens of reputable, independent coffee shops, wine bars, restaurants and boutique shops all within a 10-minute walk. Firm local favourite, The Green Room Cafe, is a garden restaurant affair, filled with plants for sale and an ever-changing menu. The Shakespeare & The Red Lion are your classic neighbourhood boozers, with great local brews, board games and quizzes.

Stoke Newington High Street (the A10) is your source of dependable chains and necessary shops, from Boots, Halfords and Tesco Metro, all within a comfortable 15-minute walk.

Clissold Park is five minutes away and offers lush open space, manicured gardens, and the original Clissold Manor House. If you see a keen jogger, there’s a great one-mile trail that runs around the park’s circumference.

Great local primary schools include Grassmere Primary almost opposite the house, and Betty Layward Primary, just at the end of the road.

Transport links
Transport options are at a premium, with Canonbury Overground a 15-minute walk away and just one stop from Highbury & Islington for connecting to the Victoria Line and National Rail trains south into Moorgate, or north towards Welwyn Garden City. Alternatively, the walk to Highbury & Islington is under half an hour. A raft of buses also goes along Stoke Newington Church Street and the A10, taking you straight into the city.
