Culford Road, London N1
A charming, mature front garden greets visitors, with a copper beech hedge along the parapet wall providing a verdant screen from the street. A gravel path leads to a timber door that opens into the ground floor hall; just off the hall, a work snug and shower room have been created underneath sloping glazing along the side elevation. An honest approach has been taken with regard to the interior aesthetic, where white walls provide a neutral palette for stone and timber. There is a living room with original timber floors and white walls at the front of the plan, where French doors with timber shutters open to the front garden. A second reception room with timber bookshelves and a cast-iron fire grate leads from the living room through to the kitchen.
The spacious kitchen has an impressive double-height extension; the current owners have placed the dining table here, and the whole area is illuminated by full-depth, sloping glazing. The room is arranged around a timber-topped island and has been decorated in a simple palette, with white walls and stone floor tiles. Three panels of French doors open onto the rear garden, filling the room with light and framing lush, green views. There is also a utility room situated off the kitchen.
There are three bedrooms on the first floor, the larger of which has full-width wardrobes and access to a timber-decked terrace overlooking the rear garden. Original timber floorboards run underfoot and timber-framed sash windows feature throughout. A bathroom with a large roof light and double sink completes the plan on this level.
A set of stairs leads to the second-floor hall, where a sash window brings in plenty of natural light. There are two double bedrooms at this level, one of which is currently used as a study/home office. There is a Morsø wood burner in one of the bedrooms and a period fire surround in the other.
There are mature gardens to the front of the house, sheltered by a copper beech hedge that provides privacy. The front gardens are home to an abundance of mature shrubs and trees, including various climbers, rose bushes and Camellia.
The rear garden is a spacious sanctuary, set around a central lawn. A flagstone patio area delineates the boundary to the kitchen, and a climbing shrub arches over the kitchen door. Raised beds and bench seating line the perimeter and a host of plants, flowers and climbers occupy the space, including Acer trees, peonies and a mature olive tree. Wisteria climbs across a timber pergola over the shed, which is set on a raised seating area to the rear of the garden.
Culford Road is conveniently positioned for the pubs, restaurants, shops and cafes of both Islington and Dalston. The Scolt Head and De Beauvoir Arms are both excellent local pubs. The De Beauvoir Deli Co is a few moments away and is a firm favourite with locals, offering locally sourced produce alongside seasonal fruit and vegetables, sandwiches and salads. Regent’s Canal is within easy reach, providing a gateway to the rest of London. The shops, galleries and restaurants of Shoreditch are also close at hand.
Haggerston Station is a 10-minute walk away, where the London Overground has connections to Canary Wharf via Canada Water. Regular buses run to the City and beyond from Kingsland Road. Kings Cross St Pancras is two miles to the west.
