Oulton Road, Tottenham, 3 Bed. House
THE OWNERS SAY
We moved to this house when our oldest child was eight weeks old and instantly fell in love with it. To be honest, we thought we were buying a home with good transport links and in a place we could afford, but we didn't think we would find our tribe. But Tottenham surprised us in so many ways! We have also enjoyed getting to know our friendly neighbours, down-to-earth local business owners and a buzzing social scene.
The house has been a real gem –– peaceful, fun and full of good memories –– it will always be a place we think of very fondly. Don't get us started, or we'll back out of selling it!

Earthy plaster tones feel like a warm embrace as you step into this charming terraced house, packed with period features and handsome details. The open-plan nature of the ground floor completely transforms a run-of-the-mill (and often dark) Victorian home into something modern and bright.
The front living space is kept cosy with an impressive stone fireplace, stripped floorboards and sash windows, while the spacious dining room flows effortlessly into the kitchen, which has been given an industrial edge with bare brick walls, blue cabinetry and chrome mod-cons. The bi-fold doors at the rear open up to reveal the sun-trap garden beyond.
There are two double bedrooms on the first floor, plus a roomy bathroom with a separate bath and shower. Take the stairs up to the loft, and you'll discover the largest bedroom, as well as an office space and ensuite shower. This house packs a lot in, and it's finished beautifully, from the windows and walls right down to the elegant door handles; no corner's been forgotten.
Oulton Road is neatly placed for some of Tottenham's best spots to eat and drink along West Green Road, but you are also within touching distance of Harringay Green Lanes and Stoke Newington. You also have access to some of the best transport links in North London, including the speedy Victoria Line from Seven Sisters, reachable in under 10 minutes on foot.
THE LEGAL BIT
