The houses on Bedford Road are rare in terms of character and proportions, and this is one of the finest on the street. Sensitively restored by its current owners, it offers a treasure trove of features and light-filled spaces, exuding a palpable sense of the past.
Serene and spacious, the home’s three floors host many wonderful corners to potter and play. The backdrop is one of muted colours, stripped wooden boards and elegant sash windows. The house is fronted by a double reception room with soaring ceilings and detailed cornicing, plus another reception room across the grand hallway.
Towards the back, the modernised kitchen has the dining room adjacent but not open-plan, both leading to a gorgeous garden perfect for green thumbs and kids. Five double bedrooms (one ensuite) rest on the upper floors along with two bathrooms, one with double sinks, and a large dressing room. The house provides pliability for choosing what you do where –– whether you need space for a workshop, art studio, office, or music room – these walls have it all.
To those not in the know, Bedford Road is close to the bustling high streets of West Green Road, Philip Lane and Green Lanes, hosting a growing cornucopia of restaurants, pubs and independent shops. Excellent transport links are moments away, with Seven Sisters Station on the Victoria Line Underground and an overground line with direct connections to Liverpool Street Station.
The sprawling Walthamstow Wetlands, with their huge interlinking reservoirs and pathways, offer leafy nature walks – heading south will bring you to the canal-side pubs of Hackney Wick. Downhills Park is a short walk away and serves the community with a playground, tennis courts, community cafe and its very own Lavender and Rose garden. Likewise, nearby Lordship Recreation Ground and Tottenham Green Leisure Centre allow for no shortage of activities for parents and little ones alike.
THE OWNER SAYS
It has been a real privilege to live as a family in this beautiful house for the past 12 years. We have had more than enough space to all enjoy ‘a room of our own’ to develop our interests and welcome friends and family.
The garden is a beautiful, generous space to relax in, and we have loved learning how to grow things and watch nature evolve, all while being just 25 minutes from the centre of London.
We would like to remain in the neighbourhood which has welcomed us warmly and where we have made many good friends over the years.

This is everything a local pub should be: craft beers/ales on tap, delicious food and bar snacks, and–to top it off–a brilliant team that runs it. Whenever we just “pop” in, we can’t help but stay for hours. Plus, we can assure you their Sunday Roast is pretty much perfect.
This Japanese shop and takeaway counter is a hidden gem. Tucked along Phillip Lane, just down from Downhills Park, the friendly team serves excellent sushi and hot dishes. Top-notch and alwasy great value.
We jumped for joy when this cocktail bar and restaurant opened in an ex-betting shop. A Whiskey Sours in hand while watching live music and feasting on Nashville chicken wings has become a Friday tradition for many. And why not?
Run by two lovely sisters with North African & Tottenham roots, this sweet independent coffee shop & deli on nearby Philip Lane packs a punch serving amazing coffee roasted by Perky Blenders in local Leytonstone. With a changing menu of sandwiches, sweet treats and blooming excellent croissants that always hit the spot, the ladies also offer gluten-free options, a range of halal meats and wonderful cheeses.
Having recently had a massive refurbishment, the facilities are now excellent. These include three pools, a gym, sauna and an ever popular soft play area. There is also a cafe where parents can rest up and watch the kids let off steam.
