Set over two light-filled floors, this spacious three-bedroom flat near Seven Sisters offers calm and considered interiors and a private south-facing terrace and garden to enjoy.
Heysham Road, Seven Sisters, 3. Bed Flat
Off the main drag of buzzy Seven Sisters Road, on a quiet residential street, this handsome first-floor maisonette is deceptively large. The classic Edwardian facade immediately draws you in, while the private front door brings extra convenience and security. And because it's purpose-built, the proportions are not compromised in the way some conversions can be –– the layout is functional with a lovely open flow.
At the front of the home, on the split-level landing, there is a main bathroom with a freestanding bath and two bedrooms. Both are comfortable doubles. Continuing up the next flight of stairs, you see the loft has been converted into one large principal bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. Packed with built-in storage and benefiting from some of the best views in the flat, it's a calming and relaxing refuge.
Heysham Road sits between four great neighbours: Stoke Newington, Stamford Hill, Harringay Green Lanes, and Tottenham. Each of them you could call home, and each is easily accessible, offering an incredible mix of places to explore. Plus, you get various transport links to whisk you into town, putting the rest of the capital (and beyond) within reach.
THE LEGAL BIT
While we endeavour to maintain accurate photographs, floor plans and descriptions, our marketing material is only a guide. Purchasers should always visit in person. We often round up/down total floorplan measurements, and distances are also provided as approximates.
THE OWNERS SAY
We will miss this home so much! We will miss the sunrise and sunset when the living room has an orange glow. We will miss our lunchtime strolls around Paignton Park and our breakfasts on the terrace. We will miss the study, with its view over Manchester Gardens - the perfect haven for a productive day of work.
We couldn’t have asked for more by way of location: Manor House and Seven Sisters stations are a short walk away. We have always felt close to nature, with Finsbury and Clissold Parks and the two beautiful reservoirs on our doorstep. We have been spoiled on the food front too; Milk (over the road in the warehouse district) does the best coffee, a new Brazilian bakery on Seven Sisters Road offers fresh cake and bread every morning, and we have made the most of the amazing Turkish restaurants on Green Lanes. Gurbet deserves a mention too: two minutes away, open 24/7, with a freshly baked goods section.
Finally, we will miss the amazing community spirit: many people on the street have lived here for years. Everyone looks out for each other, and there’s communal gardening and even a Heysham Road herb patch. Our co-freeholder and good friend lives at number 8, which is the downstairs flat. These neighbours and those to our left and right have been incredibly kind to us and helpful on many occasions over the years.

Being a purpose-built maisonette, the flat has its own front door.
Explore North London
Next to the reservoir. A haven for wildlife and people, and with a lovely cafe overlooking the ponds.
Newly opened café and restaurant with good coffee, wine and happy hour-negronis.
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.
A little ray of sunshine, this chilled-out café caters for every taste with an eclectic menu. Run by a friendly bunch, it has a dedicated following of locals, as the polaroids of regulars can attest!
Lush outdoor swimming spot, in the summer it even warms up enough for fair-weather swimmers.
