This delightfully renovated four-bedroom family home in Tottenham effortlessly marries contemporary function with Victorian personality.
Fairbourne Road, Tottenham, 4 Bed. House
Wonderfully spacious, this four-bedroom mid-terrace home just off Phillip Lane has been thoughtfully remodelled to create a versatile and characterful interior, ideal for busy modern life.
The ground floor feels fluid and spacious as the open living and dining rooms flow into the sleek, bespoke kitchen design by Roundhouse. Clean lines abound with stylish and functional in-built storage, perfect for scurrying away toys and mittens in time for evening entertaining with friends. Heading upstairs to the first floor, there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom featuring a mix of metro and colourful mosaic tiles. And on the uppermost level is a wonderful light-filled lofty space with a handy ensuite shower room.
Fairbourne Road is a hop and a skip from two green spaces: Lordship Rec and Downhills Park. They are filled with activities such as tennis courts, a paddling pool, playgrounds, and BMX tracks. Both have excellent community cafés. Sprawling Walthamstow Wetlands lie just to the East, perfect for nature-filled weekend rambles. While close at hand, Bruce Grove High Street will swing you down to Seven Sisters, where you'll find various transport connections, including the speedy Victoria Line.
THE OWNER SAYS
Our family has adored living in this beautiful home and restoring it to add even more character and charm. The flow makes everyday cooking and living easy –– we have enjoyed hosting many parties, filling the whole house with joy and laughter.
There is a warm and welcoming community on the doorstep, and we feel fortunate to have made many wonderful friendships with other families over the years. A particular highlight is the festive annual street parties linking Fairbourne and adjacent Chester Roads.

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 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.
3 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.
4 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?
5 Tottenham Green Leisure Centre
Having recently had a massive refurbishment, the facilities are now excellent. These include three pools, a gym, sauna and an ever popular soft play area. There is also a cafe where parents can rest up and watch the kids let off steam.
