BRICKWORKS SAYS

Truly a magical home, this one-bedroom garden flat incorporates a storybook Arts & Crafts style alongside dashing interior design, creating a perfect North London sanctuary tucked into the desirable Lakes Estate Conservation Area. Each room has been meticulously finished, building on the incredibly preserved craftsmanship from the Edwardian era, from the high decorative ceilings and pretty stained glass windows.

Mature, flower-filled gardens packed with Rose and Magnolia sit at the back and front of the house. And the current owner has artfully brought the ornate exterior inside by peppering statement wallpaper throughout. This thoughtful approach has created an interior inspired by nature, where graceful windows frame almost every room, not least of all the exquisite bedroom where a seamless view of the stunning garden awaits.

Surrounded by pretty Grovelands and Broomfield Parks and the 'village' of Palmers Green, the flat is in a peaceful corner of North London yet only moments from restaurants, cafes and high street conveniences. The mainline rail service from close by Palmers Green station means the City is within a 30-minute reach - likewise with Central London and the Piccadilly Line stations of Arnos Grove or Southgate, both a short stroll away.

THE OWNER SAYS

Palmers Green is a wonderful place to live. With beautiful parks nearby, the surrounding area is peaceful. We have especially loved ambling around Broomfield Park with its little lakes, summer orchard and conservatory. Nearby Grovelands Park is a great space for walks and has a lovely lake full of wonderful birds.
