BRICKWORKS SAYS

As you walk along this North London street, you can't help but gravitate towards this welcoming wisteria-clad house. The inviting appeal of the exterior is echoed inside, with a living space that radiates warmth and understated elegance. Patio doors spill onto the pleasing arched brickwork of the courtyard garden, framed from the window of the blue kitchen.

Deep terracotta steps lead you upstairs, where the tasteful colour palette continues. In the main bedroom, built-in cupboards keep the sleeping quarters neat, so you can relax in calm and uncluttered surroundings. The second bedroom makes a perfect kids' room (or home office) with its pop of baby blue on the window frame. While the bathroom, painted in shades of green, is a charming and atmospheric spot to ablute and relax.

Elmar Road sits in the middle of Tottenham, within a community positively evangelical about the local area –– and you can understand why. There's the nearby hum of life in Seven Sisters, with a bounty of restaurant and pub options (and more opening all the time), yet ample green space to provide an escape when you need it. With all this and more, it's the perfect spot for anyone wanting to put down roots.

THE OWNERS SAY

Time flies when you're having fun! Our eight years have gone in a flash. The house is so warm and inviting that it instantly felt like home to us. We love that the house's original character is still going strong. In the spring, the garden is filled with blooms and makes for a peaceful place to eat lunch. When the wisteria is in full colour at the front of the house, it's a conversation starter for everyone who walks by.

We feel lucky to have so much green space close by. We head to Downhills Park most days for walks, runs and hang-outs with friends. The Elmar Road family is a strong network of neighbours; people help each other whenever needed. We've lived all over London, and never before have we experienced such a sense of community. We love it so much that we won't be leaving the area, so we look forward to bumping into the new owners in the local coffee shop, Perkyn’s!

1 The Palm

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.

2 Sushi Heads

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.

3 Ten to One

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?

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.

5 Perkyn's

Fuelling our coffee addiction since the day it opened, Perkyn's is one of the best for a coffee hit. A bottle shop, too, fridges filled with beautifully designed craft beers and wine that makes any occasion feel like a real treat.
