Property description

Tenure: Share of Freehold

Located on the Highgate side of Crouch End, within the Conservation Area and a short walk from Crouch End Broadway, this wonderful studio apartment occupies the first floor of one of the area’s most sought-after modernist buildings. It has a private balcony overlooking the large, private and mature gardens below. The flat also has the use of an off-street parking space in the development.

The Building

Highgate Spinney was built between 1964 and 1966, to a design by the noted architects John Howard and Bruce Rotherham. It consists of 30 apartments in a secluded position, surrounded by trees and communal gardens.

The Tour

The apartment is accessed off Crescent Road and a walkway at first-floor level leads to the front door, which opens into the hall. While the home is a studio there is ample space for a defined kitchen, along with a living/dining area. The raised kitchen overlooks the living area, which is accessed via a set of original Columbian pine steps. There are white walls and a neutral palette throughout, with glazed doors onto the balcony offering treetop views and welcoming natural light in.

A sleeping area lies adjacent to the living room. An internal corridor with plenty of storage leads off the living room and up a small set of steps to the bathroom, which completes the plan.

Outdoor Space

The apartment has a spacious balcony that runs along the entire frontage, with access either through a set of full-height, glazed sliding doors off the living room or a single glazed door off the sleeping area. The balcony is a delightfully verdant setting, overlooking mature trees and greenery in the large communal garden below, which is a well maintained and thoroughly tranquil environment. The garden and communal car park, which has secure entry off Crescent Road, are solely for residents of the block.

The Area

Crescent Road is a tranquil tree-lined street within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of Crouch End Broadway. To the west is Highgate Wood and the adjacent Queen’s Wood, with a playground and a large expanse of playing fields. To the north is Alexandra Park and to the south is Finsbury Park, which are connected by Parkland Walk, a former railway line. Highgate Spinney is a short walk from Coolhurst Tennis Club, as well as Coleridge Primary School, which is rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.

Local transport links include Crouch Hill British Rail station and Highgate Underground station (Northern Line), as well as excellent local buses.
