An inviting sanctuary in the midst of Stoke Newington, this one-bedroom first-floor flat has a delightfully surprising sense of scale and the added bonus of a private garden space.
Lordship Park, Stoke Newington, 1 Bed. Flat
THE OWNERS SAY
This flat is my sanctuary in the city. The beautiful views of the leafy woodland and canopy of green trees at the back of the house, with its stunning sunsets, abundance of light and birdsong are a complete joy and provide pure relaxation.
I've loved living in this flat and in this area and if I wasn't leaving London then I wouldn't be selling it! It's perfectly placed to pop to the shops, restaurants, pub, Clissold Park or my favourite, the reservoir and wetlands.
The flat's high ceilings, large rooms and split level give it an amazing sense of space. It is light and bright, yet gives a wonderful feeling of cosiness too. I work from home a lot of the time and the kitchen provides the perfect peaceful space that I've needed. It's a very special place and I hope that somebody will love and enjoy it as much as I have.

On a wide street of handsome houses in the heart of N16, this split-level one-bedroom flat on the first floor is an absolute delight. From the moment you walk down the ornately tiled garden path, it’ll win you over. High ceilings in the living room give a feeling of space, as well as accommodating stacks of practical shelving, and the gorgeous fireplace makes for a majestic focal point. Step down into the eat-in kitchen, which enjoys plenty of cupboard space, neutral tones and plenty of light.
Both the kitchen and living space are perfectly positioned at the back of the house to enjoy the cornucopia of green outside. The generous dimensions continue in the bedroom, which comfortably houses a decadent four-poster. The bathroom also benefits from natural light, a bonus as many a Londoner can attest, and beautifully opulent green tiles add a touch of luxe.
Lordship Park is in a dreamy spot, being minutes from downtown Stoke Newington. A neighbourhood lauded for its village feel, it is bursting with boutique shops and buzzing nightlife. You needn’t go far when you want to browse, brunch or just absorb the atmosphere. And when you feel like escaping the crowds, nearby Woodberry Wetlands provides a peaceful retreat to nature.

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.
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.
Beautiful interiors and lifestyle store on Church Street, stocking some of our favourite homeware brands. One of our go-to's!
Open all day every day, Finks serves up simple yet delicious morsels to an ever-growing troop of (well fed) locals. It’s a laid-back neighbourhood spot that’s serious about great food. You can happily have coffee and cake, or switch it up and have something more substantial on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. You can't go wrong.
