Found in leafy Winchmore Hill, the bright blue door of this Edwardian house, is an enticing insight into the beautifully bold interior that sets this four-bedroom family home apart.
Barrowell Green, Winchmore Hill, 4 Bed. House
This vibrant family home in Winchmore Hill really packs a punch. Drenched in colour from top to bottom, the current owners have created a fun family home that’s full of thoughtful touches to help make everyday life that little bit easier; from the clever utility space squeezed between the kitchen and downstairs loo to the second bathroom in the loft and the handy shed in the back garden. This is a house that works hard, and plays hard, too.
Black woodwork on the staircase leads the eye upwards while the deep blue living room with its warm wooden floor steals attention on the ground floor. A feast for the senses, this creative home manages to be simultaneously bold and calm. The considered palette is showcased via the brand-new shaker-style sage kitchen units teamed with rose pink metro tiles that subtly link to the hues of the office, main bedroom and garden. Speaking of which, the green open space behind the property means the back garden looks out to mature trees, providing a secluded outdoor space and gorgeous views out the rear windows.
Firs Farm Wetlands & Park is positioned at the end of the road with nature trails, streams and an outdoor classroom, while village-like and ever-popular Winchmore Hill is a walk in the opposite direction with charming pubs and cafés galore. For those considering schools, St Paul's C of E and Highfield primary schools are both rated Outstanding by Ofsted and coveted grammar, The Latymer School, is only a short walk away.
THE OWNERS SAY
We’ve loved living on Barrowell Green but it’s time to find more space in the rural Cambridgeshire countryside for our young family. A popular local haunt is ‘micro pub’, Little Green Dragon, serving up delicious cask ales, as well as live music on Wednesday evenings. The New River Path, which crosses through Barrowell Green, is great to explore by bike or foot and runs all the way from Islington to Hertfordshire.
