THE LEGAL BIT
While we endeavour to provide accurate photographs, floor plans, and descriptions, these should be intended as a guide. Total floor plan measurements are sometimes rounded for ease, and distances are approximated. Purchasers should always satisfy themselves through personal inspection.
At the end of a row of terraced houses, with its roof turret, smart grey exterior and mature wisteria, this home makes a wonderful first impression. And the interior doesn't disappoint either.
Downstairs, there is a spacious double reception room and a standalone kitchen. The reception is neatly divided into a lounge area with a wood burner to snuggle around in the winter months, and the large bay window bathes the space in natural light. The other half of the space is currently set up as a dining room with doors leading onto a side return. Next is the kitchen at the back, which is big enough for a chef and budding sous, and also has access to the patio garden.
Above, there are two bedrooms on the first floor and a huge family bathroom. The muted pastel palette ties everything together, making the whole house feel calm and grown-up. A special mention for the main bedroom - elegant and serene with its exposed brick fireplace giving texture and warmth. On the uppermost floor, in the converted loft, there is a third room with an ensuite shower. It makes for an ideal guest crash pad and/or home office.
The walled garden faces west and gives side access to the street, which is super handy for bikes and scooters or just popping to Downshills Park - moments away on foot.
Clonmell Road is an amazing spot and super quiet. Since the recent TMO (Traffic Management Order) came into effect, there is almost no passing traffic. You are also seconds from Downhills Park and Lordship Rec: the unofficial social hubs of the local community. With the property being so close to Philip Lane, you're in the heart of the action - with hot spots old and new such as The Palm, With Milk and Sushi Heads on your doorstep. Oh, and when you need to get to work or into town, there is a choice of stations: Turnpike Lane for the Piccadilly Line, or Seven Sisters for the speedy Victoria.
THE OWNERS SAY
Living at number 23 has been a joy. We are moving to be closer to family in Oxford, but we will miss this house enormously.
This corner of Tottenham has it all: great primary schools and early years childcare; excellent transport links to Central London and the airports (especially Stansted from Tottenham Hale). You have not one but two local parks on your doorstep and the leisure centre down the road is brilliant, not to mention Bernie Grant Arts Centre. Plus everything from Sainsbury's to independent stores (my favourite is Ali's at the end of the street). To top it all, you have fantastic neighbours and a wonderful community. Once you get settled, you will be made to feel very welcome.

1 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?
2 Sushi Heads
This Japanese shop and takeaway counter is a hidden gem. Tucked along Phillip Lane, just down from Downhills Park, the friendly team serves excellent sushi and hot dishes. Top-notch and alwasy great value.
3 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.
4 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.
5 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.
