While we’d never go as far as calling a home ‘an immersive experience’, there’s something about the various themed rooms of this top floor maisonette that feels like stepping through a storybook.
The large, light-filled dining/kitchen area provides the backdrop for gatherings, big or small, and its current owners love stepping through the door and down to the private garden for a morning coffee. Inside, the reception room creates a grand focal point, with its original cast iron fireplace set against Cole & Son wallpaper. As for the two bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor, colour has been recruited for maximum impact. Upstairs, the show-stopping master suite comes with an en suite shower room, while opposite, there’s a fourth bedroom with a secret den that would suit kids or teens alike.
Alexandra Park, with its panoramic views of the city and Grade II listed Alexandra Palace, is just a short stroll away. There’s also easy access to Muswell Hill’s historic Broadway with its independent cafés, restaurants, and pubs. And for transport, Bounds Green tube station is ten minutes away by foot, with Piccadilly Line service to Kings Cross in under 20 minutes.

Get your daytime caffeine pick-me-up from this buzzy café in Muswell Hill, or a hearty lunch that caters to everyone. This local neighbourhood restaurant has delicious food, with flavours inspired by the Southern Mediterranean encompassing Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. Korto create fresh and nourishing dishes that will keep you coming back for more.
The iconic Alexandra Palace, also known as Ally Pally, hosts a fantastic calendar of gig events, from comedians and musicians, to ice skating, to world snooker and darts.

Aimed at artists and aesthetes, this hostel and restaurant is set in a former electronic showroom dating from the 1930s. We love the ethos of this affordable hostel, which has 22 pared back but stylish doubles, two studio apartments and two dormitories (all with discounts for artists). The cool restaurant is a boon for the area and a destination in its own right, currently hosting Nigerian street food from Tokunbo’s Kitchen as part of a run of exciting pop-ups.
Upgrade your ride, get a tune-up or just hang out in the cafe—all while helping the local community. Bikes for Good Causes works with my AFK (formerly Action For Kids Charitable Trust) to support young people with learning disabilities, providing valuable work experience opportunities—and a damn good cup of Drury coffee.
