BRICKWORKS SAYS

It's often said that beauty is found in simplicity, and this home, in a much-loved corner of North London, embodies that perfectly. Having undergone a significant makeover, the owners have achieved an understated yet undeniably cool home that draws you in from the off.

Savvy use of colour is a theme throughout. Joyful green gives life to the flooring downstairs and helps create one seamless living space; deep, warming tones add character to the bespoke plywood kitchen and luxurious bathroom, with views of the park and a showstopper roll-top bath. The two comfortable bedrooms have a neutral palette and are brightened by painted floors, meaning light bounces happily about. And with a substantial loft and large landing, there's still room to grow without compromising the layout.

Outside, the wild garden, complete with a brick patio, has bags of potential and perennials bursting into life year-on-year. With Hartington Park at the bottom of the garden, you're not overlooked, enhancing the sense of space and privacy.

Rosebery Avenue is part of an area that locals wax lyrical about, and for good reason. From here, it's easy to take advantage of everything this corner of Tottenham has to offer –– with independent shops, breweries and bakeries just down the road, you're covered for weekend supplies. Hang tough at the local climbing centre, or take things a little easier at the Antwerp Arms community pub. Plus, with Tottenham Marshes nearby, you can strike out and get back to nature when the mood takes you.

THE LEGAL BIT

While we strive to create true-to-life photographs, floor plans and descriptions, our marketing material is only a guide. Purchasers should always visit in person, ask relevant questions and triple-check details. Brickworks takes our duty of care incredibly seriously and takes all reasonable steps to ensure all presented information is correct. However, we sometimes rely on the accuracy of the information provided to us by the seller and others. Also, please note that we often round up/down total floor plan measurements and/or use approximate distances.

THE OWNERS SAY

Our favourite room in the house is the bathroom, which is warm and relaxing and has views of the park. We insulated under the ground floor and installed new double-glazed sash windows throughout, so our house is warm and cosy throughout the winter months.

Rosebery Avenue is a quiet road sandwiched between the hustle and bustle of Tottenham High Road and the relative wilderness of the marshes surrounding the River Lea. For us, the best thing about living in Tottenham has been the mixture of green space and the closeness to all the food and drink spots that North London has to offer, as well as the sense of community.

POINTS TO CONSIDER

Energy Performance Certificate (EPC):
Current Energy Rating C. Potential Energy Rating B.

Council Tax:
The property falls into Band C (£1,608 in 2023/24) in the borough of Haringey.

Utilities:
The current monthly costs are approximately £ 45 for electricity, £ 45 for gas, and £ 42 for water. These figures naturally change seasonally during the year.

Recent work:
The current owners have completely renovated the house during their time, including replacing the windows, installing a new kitchen, bathroom and patio, as well as updating the electrics and plumbing.

Getting around:
Rosebery Avenue is well-placed to access transport links whether you're going near or far. The Overground from Bruce Grove quickly connects to Seven Sisters on the Victoria Line but also has direct links to Hackney, Bethnal Green and Liverpool Street. It's like an extension of the Victoria line with benefits. Tottenham Hale, also on the speedy Victoria line, is a little further but is the central transport hub for the area. Numerous buses run in various directions, and you can also jump on the Stanstead Express to the airport.

Anything else:
The house backs onto a lovely little park called Hartington Park. Dotted with daffodils and new tree planting, it is also home to an outdoor gym. A little further away, Bruce Grove Castle Park is a gem and home to the oldest tree in Tottenham—an ancient sessile oak that is over 450 years old.

Onward plans:
The owners are relocating for work and are selling chain-free.

landmarks

1 The Victoria

Transformed into a community pub and venue by a local resident, The Victoria is a traditional front-room boozer that caters for all (especially Spurs fan). They have hooked up with Yard Sale pizza to sweeten the deal, so you can get deliveries to the pub.

2 The Bluecoats

“The big pub on the high road serving wicked food, showing the football and providing general good vibes,” this cosy indie boozer serves up Time Out’s best burgers in London. It also has a heated garden, regular pop-up nights (Taco Tuesdays! Wing Wednesdays!) and too many beers and ciders to count.

3 Cinnamon Leaf Food Hall

Family-owned by siblings Kiera and Lewis (and some others), Cinnamon Leaf Food Hall is on a mission to promote healthy eating and sustainable living, with a focus on Afro-Caribbean cuisine and culture. It opened in 2020—right in the middle of the COVID–19 pandemic—and is going from strength to strength.

4 The Beehive

Inside, this “community pub” has all the usual diversions—pool table, board games, darts. But the huge covered beer garden is the real draw. Open all year round, it’s as buzzy as the pub’s name implies.

5 Bruce Castle

Named after Robert the Bruce, former owner of its grounds, this remarkable Grade-I listed manor house has a long and storied history. Its owners include Henry VIII’s “Groom of the Bedchamber” and Sir Rowland Hill, inventor of the postage stamp. Queen Elizabeth I, Charles Dickens and Charles Babbage all paid visits to the castle. And on its grounds is the magnificent Bruce Castle Oak, runner-up for England’s Tree of the Year in 2018!
