The current owners have reconfigured the downstairs layout to make it open plan, removing the corridor wall and widening the kitchen and sitting room partitions. They have also installed oak parquet flooring and refurbished the kitchen. The upstairs bathroom has been remodelled and made larger with new bespoke handmade cabinets. The garden was levelled, cleared and re-landscaped in 2017.
This gorgeous three-bedroom house, comprehensively remodelled, is located on a pretty residential road between Turnpike Lane and Downhills Park. It combines colour-blocked walls, bespoke joinery and ebullient tiling to create a family home bursting with Victorian detailing and contemporary design flourishes.
The creative owners have spent nearly a decade carefully crafting each room: from the oak parquet flooring to the cast-iron fireplaces – painted a captivating scarlet and turquoise. The downstairs kitchen-diner has been reconfigured into a light-filled, open-plan space. At the same time, the private southwest-facing garden, complete with its own geometric-tiled patio, ensures every inch of this cheerful home is a seamless celebration of pattern and texture.
Langham Road is a short walk from Downhills Park. With early 19th century-designed ornamental gardens, it's a mecca for local families, particularly in the summer months. In the other direction, Turnpike Lane offers a handy entry into central London. An eclectic mix of restaurants and cafés occupy several local high streets within the vicinity of the property, including bustling Green Lanes.
THE OWNERS SAY
We have loved living on Langham Road. It's been a real family home, perfect for raising our girls and hosting many a fun occasion - it will always have a special place in our hearts.
The location is fantastic, having a Tube at the bottom of the road opens up London - Oxford Circus in 25 mins from the door is a real winner (& Heathrow on a direct line for work trips!). The community spirit of Langham and the Tottenham area, in general, is incredible; we'll dearly miss ambling through Downhills Park (the best park around!) and bumping into lots of lovely neighbourhood friends.

This wonderful Victorian Park has a playgroup, playground, tennis courts, community cafe, and a charming lavender and rose garden, making it a place for all seasons.
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.
It began as a health food shop with a cafe as a sideshow, but the latter became so popular it grew and took over. Now, with an added a soft play area with kids’ toys and an expanded menu, it’s a huge hit with parents seeking solace in coffee and cake.
Our favourite place to spend additional pennies on over-priced organic chocolate from Australia and locally brewed beer. Joking aside, the selection is good, and it’s easily one of the best local places to get quality, organic produce. You get to take all of it home in a tote – which rather tellingly reads, “Not Another Tescos.”
The grand establishment that is The Salisbury harks back to the days when the area was really rather posh indeed. It’s both a relief and a delight that despite various refurbishments over the years, no one has gone and done anything silly like ripping out the original, ornate, atmospheric Victorian saloon bar and décor. A wonderful pub like this is even more special when you can call it your ‘local’.
