This smart one-bedroom flat has its very own garden with a hideaway office ‘pod’, and lies a whisker away from Stoke Newington and Woodberry Wetlands.
Cranwich Road, Stamford Hill, 1 Bed. Flat
One of four in the building, and part of a handsome double-fronted Victorian terraced house in N16, this immaculate one-bedroom apartment is a wonderfully tranquil home. With a separate entrance at the front and your own leafy garden at the back, this home affords peace and privacy from the hustle and bustle of London life.
At the front, two broad bay windows illuminate the minimal and meticulously finished main bedroom and living room. Discreet inbuilt storage has been integrated throughout, allowing for an uncluttered interior, especially in the gorgeously designed kitchen that overlooks the patio. An extension of the kitchen, the sunny west-facing garden is a room of its own, crowned by a pod-style cabin designed as a work-from-home office.
The North London enclave of Stamford Hill puts Stoke Newington Church Street with its kaleidoscope of eclectic cafes, restaurants and shops 15-minutes away on foot. The flat practically borders the wilds of Woodberry Wetlands and The Castle Climbing Centre, not to mention Clissold and Abney Parks. And with Overground and Manor House station so close by, the rest of London is at your fingertips.
THE OWNER SAYS
I have loved living on this quiet road with quick, easy access to the best bits of Stoke Newington.
Having Church Street and the many parks and super pubs close by have been wonderful. I’ve particularly enjoyed having my own garden, and the ‘pod’ has been a revelation for hybrid working. It’s also been a really convenient place to live with easy access to the rest of London via the walkable Piccadilly and Victoria lines.

Explore North London
1 The West Reservoir
Lush outdoor swimming spot, in the summer it even warms up enough for fair-weather swimmers.
2 The Clarence Tavern
This steller pub was recently highlighted as one of the best roasts in the country by The Observer magazine. Excellent food and wine, right next to Clissold Park.
3 The Good Egg
Delicious bagels and babkas. Need we say more!
With an exciting mix of Spanish mains and fresh Scottish seafood in chic industrial setting, this is our favourite spot for taking friends and family for a special night out without leaving the area. As you enter, stools around a bar look over the open kitchen with chefs preparing oysters and scallops. At the back, a relaxed but stylish restaurant serves wonderfully modern Spanish dishes. Encantamous!
5 True Craft
In this crazily-good pizza joint on the West Green Road, local craft beers (like Beavertown) sit happily next to quality imports (think Weizen-style Bavarian), giving you all kinds of problems when it comes to ordering. One of the most favourite spots in South Tottenham, and rightly so, you can also 'takeaway' if you fancy.
