Tucked down a pretty street on the border of Dalston and Stoke Newington is this thoughtfully remodelled two-bedroom flat with private roof terrace and access to a shared garden. Peppered with period details, yet designed for modern life, this home encompasses so many wishes and wants.
Foulden Road is in a quiet pocket just off Stoke Newington High Street. Walkable to the shops, pubs and eateries that line the nearby streets, as well as the green spaces of Hackney Downs and Clissold Park, it's a near-perfect spot to settle.
Foulden Road, Dalston, 2 Bed. Flat
THE OWNERS SAY
We're right in the middle of Dalston/Stoke Newington, which is a very vibrant place to be. There's a good mix of places to go out, as well as a large number of parks, making it an ideal location for families.
The flat is very quiet, and the building is well-maintained by all three owners—a gardener even comes a few times a year to look after the lovely garden.
POINTS TO CONSIDER
The EPC gives a current Energy Efficiency Rating: D & Environmental Impact Rating: D
In the Borough of Hackney, the house falls into Council Tax Band C (£1,293.21).
There are three flats within the building. All are owner-occupied. There is no service charge or ground rent – communal works are paid for as-and-when required.
Located on the first floor of a Victorian conversion, the owners have moulded the internal layout to make the most of the inherent space and charm. The standout element being the living and dining room, which has been divided from the kitchen by a Crittall-style glass wall.
Thoughtful touches—the overlap of tile and wood flooring in the kitchen, the seamless storage solutions, the clean lines that set off the original fireplace—reflect an attention to detail that permeates this home.
While sitting on a quiet tree-lined street, the flat is only moments on foot from the centres of both Dalston and Stoke Newington. It's also well placed for the Overground and a quick connection to the Victoria Line at Highbury & Islington. It means all of North East London is on your doorstep and the entire capital within reach.

2 Victory Mansion
This insanely cool bar/laid-back restaurant is a little gem. Not making a big statement from the outside, the interior has real Art Deco glory, with a beautifully crafted wooden bar, and sumptuous palm wallpaper. We love trying inventive cocktails and their delightful small dishes. One of our team's favourites is the charred leeks with crispy quinoa, it's utterly delicious.
Opened in October 2019, chef Oded Oren serves up Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern inspired small-plates & pillowy pittas within the unassuming form of a neighbourhood restaurant. The food is incredible.
A retro cinema sign above the entrance sets the scene for this cosy underground cocktail bar and lounge. Exposed brickwork and soft lighting create a perfect setting for date night, the martinis are all excellent and the Manhattan is a true classic.
