Church Walk, Stoke Newington, 3 Bed. Flat
THE OWNER SAYS
We really think this is the best location in Stoke Newington; near the park and leisure centre, great transport, close to Church Street and all the great local pubs. But crucially, it is really quiet: being set back from Albion Road means it is so peaceful at night.
We love the building itself, the flat is such a great size and we know our neighbours very well – it’s a great community. The communal car park being outside our back door means the kids can play and we have BBQs together, it feels very friendly and safe. Plus, having your own car parking space in Stoke Newington is a God-send!
This wonderful three-bedroom home over 1,100 sq ft across two levels, begins on the ground floor with a flexible, open-plan living area bathed in natural light from both sides. The muted, uncluttered aesthetic is balanced with warm walnut flooring, while the east- and west-facing garden patios invite both morning and afternoon sun into the space.
Upstairs, a trio of generous bedrooms – two with Juliet balconies, one with an en-suite shower room and extra built-in storage – are connected via a central landing to the large family bathroom. Each room is decorated with controlled flashes of colour and fittings designed to amplify the utility of the space.
Church Walk is moments from magnificent Clissold Park and a short stroll from some of Stoke Newington’s most enticing pubs and restaurants. Further away (but still not far) are Shoreditch, Islington and Hackney with their own shops and nightspots, and public transport is a breeze with Underground and Overground stations within easy walking distance.

1 Luminary Bakery
A social enterprise/bakery run for and by women who have experienced social disadvantage. Great for lunch, morning coffee and cake (any time).
This Scandi-styled restaurant serves creative, affordable, unpretentious food in a friendly setting. A seasonal fixed-price tasting menu adds a few new twists to well-known classics. Foodies travel from far and wide to enjoy Perilla’s unique fare, so booking is essential.
Occupying an old workshop, and still replete with sliding, wooden garage doors, Primeur is the kind of local restaurant you dream of having nearby. From the staff's understanding and knowledge of produce, grape & grain to the buzzing open kitchen, everything connects you to the culinary experience; it feels grounded and authentic. The ever-changing menu, made up of sharing plates is seriously delicious, and the wine list consistently brilliant. It is one of our most very favourite places.
4 The Spence Bakery
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.
Beautiful interiors and lifestyle store on Church Street, stocking some of our favourite homeware brands. One of our go-to's!
