Brickworks Says

We love the combination of raw brickwork, corrugated steel and exposed concrete with the soft, considered planting, bespoke lighting and the luxurious, hotel-like entrance foyer. It creates an on-trend environment and a compelling first home or pied-à-terre.

The industrial theme, a hallmark of The Vabel Lawrence, continues from the communal areas into the apartment. Style in abundance continues from the communal areas into the apartment with a full-width balcony, raw concrete ceilings taking centre stage and a Lusso Stone bathroom. A small but perfectly formed kitchen provides ample cupboard space, while the bedroom benefits from floor-to-ceiling balcony doors and views out onto the tree-lined street below. From the door handles and flooring to the lighting and storage, everything has been finished with meticulous attention to detail.

Lawrence Road runs between bustling West Green Road and Seven Sisters Tube on one side and leafy Philip Lane and Downhills Park on the other. In the thick of the action, you have your pick of popular spots on the doorstep, including With Milk, The Palm and True Craft. And if you’re a keen walker or cyclist, the sprawling Walthamstow Marshes aren’t too far away –– a great spot to wind down at the end of the week.

The Owner Says

Living here feels like living in a boutique hotel. I hope to recreate that feeling in my next home. When the light outside is beautiful, the light inside is beautiful, and when it’s not, the ambient lighting throughout does the job perfectly. Top tip: the exposed pipework in the main living space is handy for hanging Christmas decorations and birthday balloons! And the ridiculously spacious balcony is perfect for yoga and sundowners.

I’ve lived in Seven Sisters for over eight years, and it’s only getting better. From this spot, you have quick and easy access to West Green Road, Philip Lane, Seven Sisters, Turnpike Lane, Green Lanes, Blackhorse Road, Walthamstow, and King’s Cross. In fact, getting anywhere in London is simple.

Special shoutouts to Bind Yoga, Moloko, Perkyn’s, With Milk, all of the breweries, all of the Turkish supermarkets, and last but not least, Tottenham Wine for all those last-minute bottles of Chin Chin!

Points to Consider

Council Tax:

Neighbours:

There are 23 flats in West Apartments. It’s a mixture of rentals and owner-occupied. There is a communal WhatsApp group for the building, so any issues or questions can be raised among the residents immediately (e.g. are the cleaners late? Does anyone have a printer I can borrow? etc.)

Getting around:

Lawrence Road is brilliantly connected, just a 10-minute walk from Seven Sisters underground, where you can pick up the speedy Victoria Line or the Overground (Liverpool Street in 15 minutes, anyone?). If you'd rather avoid the tube, there are plenty of bus routes heading in various directions. Or hop on your bike and pick up the Cycle Superhighway Route 1 (CS1), which runs from Seven Sisters down to Old Street via Dalston.

Anything else:

The Lawrence development was created by Vable, a company founded in 2009 by Daniel Baliti & Jeremy Spencer. They set out with a vision to revolutionise the quality of new homes –– how they’re conceptualised, designed and built.

THE LEGAL BIT

While we endeavour to provide accurate photographs, floor plans, and descriptions, these should be intended as a guide. Total floor plan measurements are sometimes rounded for ease, and distances are approximated. Purchasers should always satisfy themselves through personal inspection.

1 Café Lemon

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!

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 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.

4 Pasero

Newly opened café and restaurant with good coffee, wine and happy hour-negronis.

5 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.
