This two-bedroom flat, close to Downhills Park, occupies the ground floor of an attractive Victorian terrace in South Tottenham. Thoughtfully designed interiors and a secluded garden make this a standout first home.
Kitchener Road, Seven Sisters, 2 bedroom Flat
Sat on a quiet, one-way street, this apartment’s pleasing proportions have been sensitivity enhanced with earthy hues and whitewashed floorboards. At the front, the reception room instantly calms with soft ochre-coloured walls and an inviting bay window overlooking a sheltered front garden, while a picture rail and ceiling rose point to the building’s late-Victorian origins.
The rest of the property is a harmonious extension of this aesthetic with pleasingly muted tones. The layout is convivial yet practical, with a bright, functional kitchen and two large bedrooms that feel connected to the outside greenery. The garden itself benefits from mature planting and has been arranged to incorporate flower beds and a spot for outdoor entertaining.
Philip Lane is at the end of the street, and beyond that, West Green Road and Tottenham High Road, each with a growing number of independent shops, pubs, and restaurants. A 10-minute walk in the other direction, and you soon come across Downhills Park and Lordship Rec. These green spaces serve as a popular location for dog walkers, runners, and families alike, with two great cafes, a playground, and a paddling pool. For transport, you are covered too, with Seven Sisters station within easy reach on foot.
THE OWNER SAYS
We have always loved the layout and location of the flat; the local parks and public transport are very good.
