Within a handsome Victorian mansion block, this light-filled three-bedroom flat in Tottenham sits on a quiet one-way street, moments from two local parks.

Abbotsford Avenue, Tottenham, 3 Bed. Flat


Under offer


Abbotsford Avenue is a one-way street that links a parade of shops on West Green Road to the recently renamed La Rose Lane. It means you have the best of both: very little passing traffic while being right in the thick of the action.

The flat is on the first floor of a Victorian mansion block, one of six within the building. Behind a decorative entrance and hallway, you step into a beautiful and immaculately cared-for home that is deceptively large –– nearly a thousand square feet of lateral space. With three bedrooms, a dedicated living room and a superb kitchen-diner, there is space to live and grow, making it future-proof and endlessly adaptable.

The current owners have done a stellar job updating the flat over the years. Everything is in excellent condition, and the colour scheme helps bounce light around the internal spaces and tie the various zones together. It feels calm, refined and grown up. A quick word, too, for the communal garden. Recently stripped back, this blank canvas will excite anyone with green fingers. It is also next on the list as part of an agreed-upon renovation plan for the block.

If you wanted to put a pin in the centre of resurgent Tottenham, somewhere you could benefit from the things that make this area so great, Abbotsford Avenue might be the spot you discovered. Not only are you moments from Chestnuts Park and Downhills, two of the best parks, but you are also close to some of the coolest bars, stores and cafés in the area, including Perkyn's, Yard Sale Pizza and The Palm. On top of that, you are within walking distance of the tube from Turnpike Lane and Seven Sisters, resulting in an easy commute or trip into town.


We’ve loved living in this flat. It is a bit of a Tardis: guests always comment how unexpectedly big it is as they enter and make their way along the hallway to our favourite space, the kitchen. Whether it’s enjoying the first coffee of the day with the morning light flooding in or entertaining friends in the evenings, it is a truly multifunctional space. We also love the living room, which provides a quiet, light and airy workspace during the day and a place of relaxation in the evenings.

It’s hard to believe how close the flat is to West Green Road because Abbotsford Avenue is so quiet. Barely a car passes down the road, and we have always found a parking space. West Green Road caters to everything you need within a 2-minute walk. We’ve particularly enjoyed Perkyn’s coffee shop on the corner of our road, Yard Sale Pizza around the corner (the best takeaway pizza in London!), and Bind Yoga Studio just a few doors further down.

There is a great sense of community in Tottenham. There is a great local vibe and many events all year round, especially in and around The Hub in Lordship Rec, a volunteer-run community centre and cafe. We visit Lordship Rec and Downhills Park most weekends; they are real gems that rival any park in North London, and we feel extremely lucky to be so close to them.

We also feel lucky to have such great neighbours in our block. We bought the Share of Freehold together in the summer of 2019, and together we have made many improvements to the block over the years. We have been very grateful for the ease with which decisions have been made and the collective attitude of doing what is best for the block.

We will be very sad to leave all of these behind but know that whoever moves in next will inherit a fabulous home in a vibrant, thriving neighbourhood.

Brickworks takes our duty of care incredibly seriously and takes all reasonable steps to ensure all presented information is correct.

Getting around:
The two closest stations are Turnpike Lane and Seven Sisters.

Onward plans:
The owners are relocating outside of London to be closer to extended family. They are actively looking.

Anything else:
Lordship Rec is just the other side of Downhills Park, and it might be our favourite nearby green space. It's especially handy if you have kids, as there is an endless supply of activities for them, including a basketball court, a BMX track, an outdoor gym, a paddling pool/splash play, a picnic area, a playground, a skatepark and table tennis tables. There are also various events during the year, often from the Lordship Hub (Google it), plus a regular Saturday morning Park Run.

1 Perkyn's

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.

2 Yard Sale Pizza

Mouth-watering Yard Sale Pizza has made its way to Tottenham. Grab a few pizzas with friends and enjoy al fresco across the road in Downhills Park.

3 Downhills Park

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.

4 Ten to One

We jumped for joy when this cocktail bar and restaurant opened in an ex-betting shop. A Whiskey Sours in hand while watching live music and feasting on Nashville chicken wings has become a Friday tradition for many. And why not?

5 The Palm

This is everything a local pub should be: craft beers/ales on tap, delicious food and bar snacks, and–to top it off–a brilliant team that runs it. Whenever we just “pop” in, we can’t help but stay for hours. Plus, we can assure you their Sunday Roast is pretty much perfect.
