Lordship Park, Stoke Newington, 2 Bed. Flat
THE OWNERS SAY
We have loved living in this flat, with its beautiful details, enormously. The leafy oasis we created at the back feels like a little island in the city.
Stoke Newington in our opinion is the best place to live in London. The shops and cafes on Church Street and the lovely Clissold Park around the corner are unbeatable. With it comes the amazing Grazebrook school for our children within walking distance and a real sense of community spirit that makes this place very special. We have put a lot of love and care into the flat and hope somebody will enjoy it as much as we have.

Smack bang near the centre of Stoke Newington, this Victorian two-bedroom flat satisfies on many levels. Take the beautifully bold wallpaper that welcomes you, or the thoughtful, artistic colour palette. The main bedroom feels warm and elegant, with a vast ceiling height, and a Mediterranean blue gives a pop of character. The bathroom is a serene space in pleasing peach with touch-of-luxe tiles. And for those on a quest for clean spaces, the in-built storage and double-height wardrobes tastefully do the job.
The open-plan living space has a heart-of-the-home feel, and the easy flow makes it ideal for convivial living. Bifold doors and the kitchen window beautifully frame the wonderfully green and leafy garden, and when wide open, help to blur the inside and out. As you stand at the kitchen’s butler sink you can overlook the mature trees and studio, nestled at the bottom of the garden. Surprisingly spacious, it offers a hideaway for knuckling down to work or indulging in pure escapism.
Lordship Park is situated perfectly for soaking up the village vibes of Stoke Newington. Church Street is your local hangout, providing delicious and delightful ways to while away your weekend. As the street name suggests you’re mere moments from Clissold Park, one of London’s best, as well as the wilds of Woodberry Wetlands and the Castle Climbing Centre – meaning you’re set up for kicking back or working out, whichever floats your boat.

Lush outdoor swimming spot, in the summer it even warms up enough for fair-weather swimmers.
This lovely big Victorian Park is the centre of Stoke Newington life. A gorgeous green space packed full of family friendly delights, there's a great cafe and events centre with food and activities, a wildlife area with deer, a skate park, tennis courts and a brilliant kid’s paddling pool and playground. All kinds of events pop up here over the summer including steam fairs, and festivals of Nigerian art, Anatolian culture and literature.
Beautiful interiors and lifestyle store on Church Street, stocking some of our favourite homeware brands. One of our go-to's!
This place is bread heaven! All baked on the premises, the vibe is stripped back simplicity – it’s a great pitstop for coffee and cake while you pick up your morning loaf. Arrive early though to avoid disappointment; they do tend to sell out of the favourites (the seeded rye is ours) by the afternoon.
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.
