Down a quiet road in South Tottenham is this one-bedroom flat with brand-new kitchen and bathroom. Bright and stylish, it’s a perfect first home in a convenient location that’s also a short stroll to green spaces and riverside nooks.
Colless Road, South Tottenham, 1 Bed. Flat
This sunny one-bedroom flat sits on the first floor of a Victorian conversion. The street is tucked behind the bustle of the high road, offering a quiet refuge in the heart of this up-and-coming area of London.
Inside, the space really breathes, with its easy flow from room to room. Exposed-brick fireplaces, picture rails and engineered wood floors live happily next to the crisp, freshly remodelled kitchen and bathroom. From the calm of the master bedroom to that airy, sky-lit kitchen, this home is a welcoming canvas that can suit any style: from mid-century minimalism to eclectic pop.
POINTS TO CONSIDER
The EPC gives a current Energy Efficiency Rating & Environmental Impact Rating: E.
In the Borough of Haringey, the house falls into Council Tax Band B (£1,275 for 2019/20).
One of two in the building, the flat has a share of freehold with 992 years remaining on the lease. There is no service charge or ground rent. Collective works are done as-and-when required.
Over the past five years, the current owners have added a new roof with skylights in the kitchen and bathroom, improved insulation in the loft and between flats, strengthened the joists and replaced the subflooring with acoustic decking. There are new floor coverings in every room, and the fireplaces have been opened. The bathroom and kitchen are completely new, with smart gas and electric meters.
THE OWNERS SAY
We love the quietness of wetlands, the wildlife, the River Lea and the marshes nearby. It provides a welcome escape from London, even though we’re so close to the tube and the West Green Road that flourishes year on year.
THE LEGAL BIT
While we endeavour to maintain accurate photographs, floor plans, and descriptions, these are intended as a guide and purchasers must satisfy themselves by personal inspection. Total floorplan measurements have been rounded for ease. Distances are also provided as an approximate.
Explore North London
In this crazily-good pizza joint on the West Green Road, local craft beers (like Beavertown) sit happily next to quality imports (think Weizen-style Bavarian), giving you all kinds of problems when it comes to ordering. One of the most favourite spots in South Tottenham, and rightly so, you can also 'takeaway' if you fancy.
No neighbourhood is complete without a laid back and unpretentious coffee shop and Craving certainly hits the mark but with a twist. Tucked along Markfield Rd, this industrial space with wooden tables and stools not only makes a mean espresso, they also serve an eclectic Asian fusion menu, cocktails and a super selection of beers. Pop in for a takeout morning brew before a sunny stroll along the Lea River canal walk. Sounds like a perfect Sunday morning to us.
Matt and Rachel Ho founded Craving Coffee as a mobile cart in 2014. It has since grown into a full-fledged café in Gaunson House Studios and serves up what most locals insist is the best coffee in London. It also hosts a carousel of pop-up restaurants specialising in street food from around the globe.
Being recognized as one of the best parks in the country, the award winning Markfield Park is a gorgeously leafy riverside green space nestled beside the towpath of the River Lea. Peppered with houseboats along the Lea and a plethora of wildlife, the park is also home to the historic Beam Engine Museum and the family friendly Markfield Park Cafe serving healthy snacks and homemade cakes.
The eponymous Bernie Grant Arts Centre, founded by the Tottenham Labour MP during the 90s, was designed by David Adjaye and was built to showcase the best of independent and international arts with a focus on culturally diverse practice. There is a fantastic arthouse cinema, dance and theatre auditorium and cafe/bar/shop. All well worth a visit in our opinion.
