A spacious, stylish and light-filled family home, tucked just around the corner from Seven Sisters, on a quiet leafy street.
Talbot Road, South Tottenham, 4 Bed. House
This substantial four-bedroom house in South Tottenham is made for happy family life, whatever shape that may be. In addition to a broad, bright living room at the front, a second reception room offers a peaceful ‘working from home’ setting.
In the kitchen/diner, possibly our favourite room, the current owners have added large, Crittall-style doors that open out onto the garden, making it an ideal space to enjoy long summer days. Upstairs offers plenty of room to live and grow, with four bedrooms (three doubles), an en-suite off the largest, plus a family bathroom.
Talbot Road is a brilliant spot for travel near and far. Seven Sisters underground is only five minutes away on foot, with the speedy Victoria Line opening up Islington, King’s Cross, and beyond. Tottenham Hale rail and Seven Sisters Overground stations are less than ten minutes’ walk, or stay local with a short bus ride to Stoke Newington or stroll up to Walthamstow Wetlands.
POINTS TO CONSIDER
The EPC gives a current energy efficiency rating of D.
In the Borough of Haringey, the property falls into the Council Tax Band E (£2,083.44 for 2021/22).
The current owners have added an en-suite in the master bedroom, refurbished the main bathroom, installed a new boiler and insulated the loft. In the kitchen, they’ve replaced the back window with glass doors, replaced sink and worktops and installed underfloor heating. Outside, they’ve landscaped the front and back gardens.
THE OWNERS SAY
Talbot Road will always be a special place for us. It was the house we fell in love with back in 2015 and then grew our family in. On first walking down the street with the trees in full bloom, we realised how quiet the road was despite being a stone’s throw away from Seven Sisters Tube Station.
Since moving in, we’ve made this house ours and made the space as family-friendly as possible. Opening the kitchen into the garden, we can have the doors open and the children playing outside while we cook or BBQ. The neighbours are great, and out of everywhere we have lived in London, we have never had such friendly and caring people around us.
The local area is an exciting place to be at the moment with the development of Tottenham Hale promising new shops, jobs and green spaces. Also within walking distance are Walthamstow Wetlands, Downhills Park and Lordship Hub - great for walks and runs. We love visiting the local coffee shops such as Full Steam, Perkyns and With Milk, and often walk down to Stoke Newington for a wander around Abney Park or tacos & cocktails at Victory Mansion. We have loved living here, it’s been a hard decision to move, and we hope that whoever moves in here loves it as much as we have.

1 Bernie Grant Arts Centre
The eponymous Bernie Grant Arts Centre, founded by the Tottenham Labour MP during the 90s, was designed by David Adjaye and was built to showcase the best of independent and international arts with a focus on culturally diverse practice. There is a fantastic arthouse cinema, dance and theatre auditorium and cafe/bar/shop. All well worth a visit in our opinion.
2 The High Cross
All quaint and Tudor-y, this micropub is actually situated in what used to be a 1920s public toilet. (They don’t make ’em like they used to…) Renowned for its surprisingly large selection of beer and an absolutely delicious Sunday Roast, this eccentric wee gem could be your new local.
3 Tottenham Green Leisure Centre
Having recently had a massive refurbishment, the facilities are now excellent. These include three pools, a gym, sauna and an ever popular soft play area. There is also a cafe where parents can rest up and watch the kids let off steam.
4 True Craft
In this crazily-good pizza joint on the West Green Road, local craft beers (like Beavertown) sit happily next to quality imports (think Weizen-style Bavarian), giving you all kinds of problems when it comes to ordering. One of the most favourite spots in South Tottenham, and rightly so, you can also 'takeaway' if you fancy.
No neighbourhood is complete without a laid back and unpretentious coffee shop and Craving certainly hits the mark but with a twist. Tucked along Markfield Rd, this industrial space with wooden tables and stools not only makes a mean espresso, they also serve an eclectic Asian fusion menu, cocktails and a super selection of beers. Pop in for a takeout morning brew before a sunny stroll along the Lea River canal walk. Sounds like a perfect Sunday morning to us.
