On a gently inclined street within Kentish Town roosts this beautiful one bedroom flat. With exquisite detailing that makes the most of the prominent, first-floor positioning, it’s a little slice of a friendly neighbourhood where green and social spaces abound.
Torriano Avenue, Kentish Town, 1 Bed. Flat
21st-century luxe in an elegant period setting: that’s this flat in a nutshell. Stylishly remodelled from top to bottom, this one bedroom home takes full advantage of every square foot and every ray of sunshine.
Three newly-fitted, double-glazed sash windows bathe the reception room in natural light, while the built-ins around the fireplace make for a cosy reading nook. The marble bathroom is boutique-hotel worthy, and every fitting and fixture has been chosen to achieve an aesthetic whole. The result is a space that exudes a sparkling calm and an invitation to entertain.
The flat is walking distance from Kentish Town and Tufnell Park stations. More than a fair share of pubs, cafes, delis and shops are on the doorstep. And it’s also within reach of Hampstead Heath and year-round swimming at the Parliament Hill Lido. It’s all part of what makes this space so enticing, both inside and out.
