An end of terrace contemporary home located on the corner of an old cobbled mews, in an ever popular turning close to Highbury & Stoke Newington. This corner home has a 360º roof terrace that is unlike any gardens in the area.
Through a sliding door up into the upstairs, immediately to your left is a clever kitchen cleverly coved around the rear corner of the house. Overlooking the street, the reception room is just across the hall, and has a bright & sunny aspect from the full wall of windows. Immediately apparent is the unique curvature of the house and how it lends itself to maximising space.
At the lower ground level, there is the first of three bedrooms, currently used as an office. A big under-stairs storage space is down here as well as additional hallway storage. There is also a shower room with utility cupboard, perfectly out the way so you do not hear any washing machine noise.
Up onto the first floor, the principle bedroom has a similar aspect to the reception, complete with ensuite shower room & built-in wardrobes. A further double is adjacent with a mews facing aspect.
Onto the roof, the terrace was added by the present owners and is a superb relaxing & entertaining spot, perfect for a summer BBQ or winter coffee morning.
Stoke Newington & wider Highbury is a thriving neighbourhood, infamous through the latter 20th century for bohemian hangouts. Life is centred around Blackstock Road & Green Lanes, both teeming with pubs, eateries, independent shops and coffee shops.
Firm local favourite, Fink’s Salt & Sweet is a rustic cafe-deli with upscale sandwiches and brilliant coffee and is only up the road. Beam Cafe & Restaurant does the best local fare with a Mediterranean twist. The Woodbine & The Clissold Park Tavern are your classic local boozers, with great local brews & pub food.
Lush open space, manicured gardens and the original Clissold Manor House, all can be found less than 5 mins away at Clissold Park. If you see a keen jogger, there is a great 1 mile trail encompassing the circumference of the park.
Local primary schools include Gillespie Primary School & St John’s CodE Primary, both equidistant from the property.
Transport options are at a premium, with Finsbury Park Tube & Overground a 12 minute walk away connecting the Victoria, & Piccadilly Underground Lines as well as local overground rail to Kings Cross & up to the Home Counties. Alternatively the walk to Arsenal underground is 10 minutes.
