An ideal home for busy family life, this spacious four-bedroom Edwardian house between Wood Green and Tottenham unfolds across three floors and features a large kitchen/diner opening onto a southwest-facing garden.
Boreham Road, Noel Park, 4 bedroom House
This expansive family home – spread over more than 1,600 square feet – harmoniously combines period and contemporary design features, with the owners having recently undertaken a comprehensive renovation and redecoration of the property while retaining classic Edwardian characteristics such as the cast iron, tiled fireplace, ceiling rose and a combination of original and reclaimed wooden floorboards throughout.
On the ground floor are two, versatile reception spaces, including an extended kitchen-diner with solid oak bi-fold doors that leads to a large, decked southwest facing garden with mature planting and shed, ensuring this is a home fit for any occasion.
Upstairs are four generous bedrooms, all well-proportioned, plus a family bathroom with roll top bath, brand new shower room and WC located on each of the three floors. At the top of the house, the recently converted loft is a soothing space with views across the rooftops of north London to Alexandra Palace and beyond. With generous fitted storage and enough room in the eaves for everything that is usually stored in a loft.
Neighbourly Noel Park is packed with amenities, including two popular local parks, busy Lordship Lane with its array of shops and restaurants, and variety of public transport options including nearby Turnpike Lane tube.
THE OWNER SAYS
We absolutely love this home. It has been a very special place to raise our three children, with lots of happy memories. It has such a spacious living area, which is perfect for family gatherings, and with lovely neighbours on both sides. The house has a lovely sun trap at the back and an oasis of adjoining gardens, away from the hustle and bustle of central London, which is only 25 minutes away on the tube from Turnpike Lane. Sunsets are best viewed from the loft, along with the Ally Pally fireworks.
We will sorely miss the amazing selection of cuisines at the end of the road on Lordship Lane and the brilliant international supermarkets – all within a couple of minutes walk. It was great to be able to choose between the local schools – plus a brilliant nursery where all our children have thrived. We’ve really felt at the heart of the community with a fantastic group of local friends.
The kids will really miss Lordship Rec, with its community hub, playgrounds, BMX track, model traffic system and skate park, which is only five minutes walk away. We will greatly miss living here!

It began as a health food shop with a cafe as a sideshow, but the latter became so popular it grew and took over. Now, with an added a soft play area with kids’ toys and an expanded menu, it’s a huge hit with parents seeking solace in coffee and cake.
