Within a peaceful corner of N16 stands this handsome three-bedroom terraced house with a picturesque south-facing garden. Set on a no-through road and brimming with Edwardian character and potential, this exquisite home is one-of-a-kind.
Denver Road, Stamford Hill, 3 Bed. House
This three-bedroom Edwardian terraced house is a treasure trove for anyone aesthetically-minded looking for a home. Ornate cast-iron fireplaces, Minton tile floors, a handsome spindle staircase—all are original to the house.
A sense of history shows in the grand scale of the entire space and the intimate character of each room. The current owners have employed a light touch to renovations, ensuring the feel and fabric of the house stay intact. So, while there’s an opportunity to personalise, increase the footprint and modernise, the appeal of this home is its singular and unspoiled character.
The location is just as good. Besides the wonderful, whimsical garden, nearby green space abounds, from the gothic labyrinth of Abney Park to the wilds of Woodberry Wetlands and the expanse of Clissold Park. Stamford Hill station is minutes away, putting Liverpool Street about 25 minutes from the doorstep. The independent shops, eateries and pubs along Stoke Newington High Street and Church Street are walkable, too.
THE OWNER SAYS
When we first walked into the house we were stunned by the light and by the garden. It felt bright and open, with cosy rooms.
It is not easy to depart from this property; it’s a perfect house for nesting and for someone to create a forever home in London.

1 The Clarence Tavern
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.
2 The Good Egg
Delicious bagels and babkas. Need we say more!
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!
4 True Craft
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.
Beautiful interiors and lifestyle store on Church Street, stocking some of our favourite homeware brands. One of our go-to's!
