Story of the Home
“When we started house hunting we knew that we wanted a property with character, and were very excited when we first saw the building. It is very pretty, classically Victorian in style with beautiful bay windows. It sits on the corner of two quiet streets, so there is fantastic dual aspect light throughout the day.
If you’re buying a flat in London, having your own front door is a bit of a rarity. When we viewed the property for the first time, we were expecting to share an entrance with neighbours. This was such a bonus, and is one of our favourite things about the apartment. The extra privacy and security it provides is great.
Another great feature is the wide entrance hall, it gives the apartment a real sense of space as soon as you walk in. The second bedroom could be a great nursery or work from home study but we used it for friends and family when they stay.
The master bedroom is really impressive, with large bay windows and lots of built-in storage to hide all that clutter! Decorated using Hicks Blue by Little Greene, the room has a relaxing and calming feel.
The open plan kitchen is very spacious with lots of worktop and storage space. We regularly have friends over for dinner and love that we can chat while cooking.
With great ceiling height throughout, the reception room feels much larger than the floor plan would suggest. There is enough space for a dining table, corner sofa, and bookshelves. There’s another beautiful bay window that currently has a cosy ‘loveseat’ tucked into, a great spot for reading a book with a glass of wine in the evening. Bespoke plantation shutters in the room give it character, as well as privacy.
Both Abney and Clissold Parks are within a few minutes walk and we love stopping off at the Parlour or Blighty to grab a coffee on the way. There are lots of great amenities on Stoke Newington Church Street and in the surrounding local area, many of which are family run, giving the area a community spirit that can be hard to find in London.
Our favourite places to eat are The Good Egg for brunch (try the shakshuka, it’s delicious!), and Sutton & Sons do the best fish and chips. A firm favourite with locals is The Auld Shillelagh, a true Irish pub.
We are very close to Stoke Newington station and getting into central London is easy. Trains to Liverpool Street take approximately 15 minutes, while Oxford Street is just 28 minutes.”
