A renovated one bedroom flat offering stressfree village-living in one of North London’s most treasured neighbourhoods.
Beavis House, Stoke Newington, 1 Bed. Flat
This fresh, one bedroom flat is simply and effectively laid out and is found in a dream Stoke Newington location. Part of a mid-century block, the current owner has renovated the space to create a modern and stylish home, replacing the kitchen and bathroom and adding some lovely touches such as solid wood floors, slate tiles and wooden worktops.
Mere steps from Church Street and its cafes, restaurants and independent stores, this is the ideal spot for soaking up Stokey’s village vibes (and being first in the queue for a table at your favourite spot for brunch). Much-loved Clissold Park and Abney Park act as back gardens, only a few minutes away by foot. And with Stoke Newington Overground station a short walk away, this is a comfortable base for hopping around North/East London when you need to venture further afield.
THE OWNERS SAY
Defoe Road was my first flat purchase and experience living alone, and I absolutely relished the time I spent here. I had lived in Hackney for years with friends, but moved up to Stoke Newington when I bought, as I loved the village-y feel it offered. The flat is so perfectly placed by Church Street.
This was my bolthole and escape from the world, but also had everything I could possibly want on the doorstep; loads of great pubs - The Londesborough for the best roasts and the Clarence literally steps away, great restaurants like The Good Egg at the end of the road, and Wholefoods, where I could spend hours (and lots of money!) buying late suppers or salads to take to Clissold Park in the summer. I did yoga round the corner, and when I wanted to get away, the trusty 73 bus would have me in Islington in 15-20 minutes, for a bit more action. It's still my favourite bit of London and the flat holds nothing but great memories.

Delicious bagels and babkas. Need we say more!
This steller pub was recently highlighted as one of the best roasts in the country by The Observer magazine. Excellent food and wine, right next to Clissold Park.
With an exciting mix of Spanish mains and fresh Scottish seafood in chic industrial setting, this is our favourite spot for taking friends and family for a special night out without leaving the area. As you enter, stools around a bar look over the open kitchen with chefs preparing oysters and scallops. At the back, a relaxed but stylish restaurant serves wonderfully modern Spanish dishes. Encantamous!
Beautiful interiors and lifestyle store on Church Street, stocking some of our favourite homeware brands. One of our go-to's!
This place is bread heaven! All baked on the premises, the vibe is stripped back simplicity – it’s a great pitstop for coffee and cake while you pick up your morning loaf. Arrive early though to avoid disappointment; they do tend to sell out of the favourites (the seeded rye is ours) by the afternoon.
