POINTS TO CONSIDER

Energy Performance Certificate (EPC):
Current Energy Rating D. Potential Energy Rating C.

Council Tax:
The property falls into Band E (£2,435 in 2023/24) in the borough of Haringey.

Utilities:
Monthly costs are £115 for electricity, £80 for gas, and £55 for water. These figures are approximate and naturally change seasonally during the year.

Recent work:
The current owners have replaced the bathroom and kitchen, adding underfloor heating. They have extended into the loft, replaced the roof, updated the boiler, gas, and electrics, and re-pointed the front of the house.

Getting around:
The overground from Bruce Grove quickly connects to Seven Sisters on the Victoria line, but it also takes you directly to Hackney, Bethnal Green and Liverpool Street in 30 minutes. It's like an extension of the Victorian Line with benefits. If you're feeling energetic, you can pick up the cycle highway nearby that will take you straight into the city.

Onward plans:
The owners are relocating back to France and selling chain-free.

Anything else:
Tottenham Marshes and the hotly contested Walthamstow Wetlands (it might be on the other side of the River Lea, but it has a Tottenham postcode!) are great for weekend walks.

THE LEGAL BIT

While we strive to create true-to-life photographs, floor plans and descriptions, our marketing material is only a guide. Purchasers should always visit in person, ask relevant questions and triple-check details. Brickworks takes our duty of care incredibly seriously and takes all reasonable steps to ensure all presented information is correct. However, we sometimes rely on the accuracy of the information provided to us by the seller and others. Also, please note that we often round up/down total floor plan measurements and/or use approximate distances.

BRICKWORKS SAYS

Even as you approach this house on a charming Tottenham street, it's clear it's been exceptionally cared for with crisp brickwork and pointing. A tessellated tile path leads you up to the front door and continues inside, welcoming you into the hallway.

Two magnificent fireplaces are a standout feature in the double reception downstairs, adding stature. However, the east-west alignment is equally important, ensuring this main living space is filled with light all day. High ceilings and decorative cornicing add depth of character.

In contrast, the kitchen's aesthetics are sleek and modern, with shades of greys combined with geometric tiles and Crittle-style doors opening out onto the garden beyond. The owners have thought of everything, from underfloor heating to a window seat, creating the perfect place to perch while cleverly doubling up as storage.

Upstairs are five bedrooms, set over two floors (one a loft conversion) and two bathrooms in keeping with the atmosphere and aesthetic. Neutral walls, naked wooden floors and dark woodwork provide a common thread throughout, which makes for a cohesive and inviting space.

Chandos Road is in the heart of Tottenham, a well-loved and ever-evolving pocket of North London. Known for its thriving and embracing community, particularly for young families, there is a veritable smorgasbord of activities on your doorstep, including a growing number of fantastic restaurants and enough pubs and cultural spots to keep you busy for ages. And when you need to mix it up, Downhills Park, Lordship Rec and Bruce Castle Park are on your doorstep, each with their own pull.

THE OWNERS SAY

We've found such a lovely community since moving here. We love to have family events at the Beehive or the Bluecoats down the road, and we often go to the Turkish cafés along Green Lanes with the baby in tow. While not as much fun, having a big high street nearby in Wood Green is super handy.

Tottenham is proper London, but there is a surprising number of green spaces nearby –– we often walk to the canals and the wetlands, but Lordship Rec and Downhills are very close by and are great for when you need a fresh air fix or the kids need to let off steam.

landmarks

1 With Milk

Run by two sisters, this sweet independent coffee shop & deli on nearby Philip Lane packs a punch serving amazing coffee roasted by Perky Blenders in local Leytonstone. With a changing menu of sandwiches, sweet treats and blooming excellent croissants that always hit the spot, the ladies also offer gluten-free options, a range of halal meats and wonderful cheeses.

2 Luna D’Amore

Say hello to your new local, and very tasty, woodfired pizza takeaway. This lot aren’t afraid to break the boundaries of pizza-making with regularly changing specials, but purists will be satisfied with the freshness and delicious dough.

3 The Beehive

Inside, this “community pub” has all the usual diversions—pool table, board games, darts. But the huge covered beer garden is the real draw. Open all year round, it’s as buzzy as the pub’s name implies.

4 Cinnamon Leaf Food Hall

Family-owned by siblings Kiera and Lewis (and some others), Cinnamon Leaf Food Hall is on a mission to promote healthy eating and sustainable living, with a focus on Afro-Caribbean cuisine and culture. It opened in 2020—right in the middle of the COVID–19 pandemic—and is going from strength to strength.

5 Bruce Castle

Named after Robert the Bruce, former owner of its grounds, this remarkable Grade-I listed manor house has a long and storied history. Its owners include Henry VIII’s “Groom of the Bedchamber” and Sir Rowland Hill, inventor of the postage stamp. Queen Elizabeth I, Charles Dickens and Charles Babbage all paid visits to the castle. And on its grounds is the magnificent Bruce Castle Oak, runner-up for England’s Tree of the Year in 2018!
