At the end of a quiet street in Tottenham, this two-bedroom house is brimming with charm and potential.

Halefield Road, Tottenham, 2 Bed. House



If you're looking for a city fix but also covet a more quiet life, this cottage-like house could be the answer.

Close to the shops and connections of Tottenham Hale and a short walk to the High Road, there's everything you could need nearby. And yet, with the street becoming pedestrianised during school rush hours, a long, south-facing garden and the wide expanse of Tottenham Marshes nearby, Halefield Road is surprisingly tranquil.

Inside, stripped floorboards provide a warm welcome, with two well-proportioned living rooms, one on either side of the central staircase. Both are currently set up living rooms, but they are adaptable –– and the second could easily be made into a more formal dining area. A crisp white kitchen leads through to that wonderful garden. And upstairs, there are two double bedrooms, one with built-in wardrobes while the other has a handy office nook and loft access. Cool, white-washed walls and woodwork link the entire home together and are the perfect backdrop to bring your own stamp.

This northern part of Tottenham is evolving fast, making it an exciting place to be, with plenty of places to discover. Take Ora Brewing, just around the corner, serving up experimental craft beers, cocktails, organic wines and street food at their taproom. Or Table13, reachable via the Tottenham Marshes, for delicious baked goods, pizza, coffee, and wine. This is all backed up by superb transport links from Tottenham Hale, which links to the Victoria Line and provides direct access to Standard Airport.


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

Council Tax:
The property falls into Band C (£1,776 in 2023/24) in the borough of Haringey.

Current monthly costs are approx: Electricity £73, Gas £100 and Water £36. These figures naturally change seasonally during the year.

Recent work:
The bathroom and kitchen have both been modernised and remodelled. The front of the house was also repointed in recent years.

Getting around:
With the newly named Weaver Line (Overground) at Bruce Grove, less than a 15-minute walk in one direction, and the Victoria Line and National Rail at Tottenham Hale a 15-minute walk in the other, it’s super quick and easy getting into town, as well as Stansted Airport with the Stansted Express running every 30 minutes.

Harris Academy Coleraine Park is an outstanding primary school just across the road.

Anything else:
Being end-of-terrace means only one direct neighbour. Plus, you get a side entrance with access to the back garden, which means the front is larger than most (on the street) and has plenty of space for bike and bin storage.


Halefield Road is an unbelievably peaceful, calm place to live. Being a school street, there is so little passing traffic that you can sit in the garden and feel like you're miles from the city.

The garden itself is huge, designed - apparently - to be big enough for nineteenth-century workers to keep pigs in. We never delved into animal husbandry, but the garden has been an incredible refuge for us in the warmer months: a big, private, lovely, quiet sun-trap. You're also minutes from the wilderness of Tottenham Marshes if you need wide open spaces.

But it's not all serenity and peace. The house is within easy walking distance of Tottenham Hale tube station with its vast retail park and new clubs, and you can be on Tottenham High Road in minutes. You're spoilt for pubs, too, with the amazing Ora brewery just around the corner and The Victoria and The Bluecoats almost as close in the other direction. The school on our street is rated Outstanding, and the shed in our garden is a replica of the artist Barbara Hepworth's shed.

1 The Victoria

Transformed into a community pub and venue by a local resident, The Victoria is a traditional front-room boozer that caters for all (especially Spurs fan). They have hooked up with Yard Sale pizza to sweeten the deal, so you can get deliveries to the pub.

2 The Bluecoats

“The big pub on the high road serving wicked food, showing the football and providing general good vibes,” this cosy indie boozer serves up Time Out’s best burgers in London. It also has a heated garden, regular pop-up nights (Taco Tuesdays! Wing Wednesdays!) and too many beers and ciders to count.

3 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.

4 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.

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!
