BRICKWORKS SAYS

This Scandi-inspired, two-bedroom home in Tottenham is dotted with period details and has oodles of personality. The current owners have cleverly updated the interiors to preserve their Victorian features but without a hint of stuffiness. Every room seems to attract light, and a clean colour palette with a stripped-back aesthetic lets the house’s original character shine through.

Outside, the patio garden radiates with greenery, blooms and fruit trees. Its west-facing aspect makes it an ideal spot for entertaining, particularly in the afternoon and into the evening.

Clonmell Road is a quiet spot only moments from Downhills Park and Lordship Recreation Ground, whose community co-op offers classes and events for the whole family. Indie pop-ups sit alongside family-run establishments down nearby Philip Lane and West Green Road. The closest tube is Seven Sisters on the speedy Victoria Line, so Kings Cross is only about 30 minutes away; from sofa to station.

THE OWNERS SAY

We’ve loved every minute in this house, and if our family weren’t all up north, we’d definitely be staying! This was the first home we owned together, and really we feel part of the community here.

We’ll miss neighbours, the local pub, The Palm, the two parks (Downhills and Lordship) and our local Italian deli, Lo Sfizio. Oh, and the coffee shop Perkyns and their St. Johns doughnuts! We go to all the markets: the Wine and Rind cheese stall at Halcombe Market, the fresh fruit and veg at Tottenham Green Farmers Market and the amazing Seven Sisters indoor market.

Our garden is the heart of our home. Growing veggies and entertaining friends there made it feel like another room in the house. It’s so peaceful; we’ve adored our little green haven.

1 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.

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 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.
