Moments from the very best of Crouch End, this three-bedroom maisonette has its own private garden, a breezy aesthetic and a spacious, family-friendly floor plan.
Nelson Road, Crouch End, 3 Bed. Flat
Lively, cheerful and fresh, this three-bedroom flat applies a thoroughly modern sensibility to a period canvas. The tiled entryway curves upward to the open-plan living room/dining room/kitchen. Brightly lit by a wall of windows and flanked by bespoke cabinetry, this brilliantly designed space offers plenty of room to work and study, eat and socialise, read and relax. There’s even a wood burner for additional cosy-ness.
There’s a striking tiled bathroom and a good-sized spare room/home office on the same floor, with stairs leading down to the walled garden with its lush climbers, blooms and branches. Tucked under eaves are two quiet bedrooms. The main sleeping space even has a beauty of a built-in wardrobe with shower room next door.
This spacious, bi-level layout is ideal for a work-from-home couple or a family who wants to balance me-time with we-time.
Crouch End Broadway is at the end of the road. The whole neighbourhood has village-like vibe, with some of the most popular pubs, shops, restaurants and not one but two arthouse cinemas. Also nearby is lovely little Stationers Park, Priory Park and Crouch End Playing Fields, so there’s no shortage of green space and fresh-air fun to be had. Hornsey Station is closest, with mainline rail service to the City and beyond.

THE OWNERS SAY
We love the open-plan kitchen with breakfast bar and the flexible layout of the living room. The large kitchen, complete double ovens and loads of storage, is perfect for cooking feasts for friends and family. The garden catches the afternoon and evening sunshine and feels like an outdoor living room for relaxing or having BBQs.
Our Nelson Road neighbours are the best, and it’s great being so close to all the restaurants, cinemas, independent cafes and bars in Crouch End. We’re also close to the tennis and squash club and a short walk from Hornsey train station for quick trips to central London.
