Property description

Tenure: Share of Freehold

This beautiful four-bedroom home lies on the picturesque Clissold Crescent, a stone’s throw from Stoke Newington’s Church Street and the open greenery of Clissold Park. It extends to almost 1,300 sq ft internally and has been recently renovated by the current owners, who have retained the essence of the refined period home while introducing thoughtful contemporary elements. A large portion of the home faces south so is bathed in light throughout the day.

The Tour

The apartment is arranged over the first and second floors of a handsome redbrick Victorian townhouse. Entrance is on the ground floor, through a doorway that opens to a private staircase which ascends to a generous hallway above. The wall is lined with a cupboard, providing ample storage space, and there are hooks for hanging coats.

The landing is defined by a striking, glazed floor-to-ceiling door, which slides open to reveal the contemporary kitchen. This is fitted with grey cabinetry and a bespoke brushed stainless steel worktop to one side, and a wall of bespoke white cabinetry to the other. A solid oak recessed fitted bench delineates the dining area, while a sash window frames leafy views over the backs of neighbouring houses. Adjacent lies a WC and a bedroom, currently used as a snug.

The living room is arranged at the front of the plan; this space is filled with light streaming in through a bay of windows and a sash window to one side, each crowned by a pane of decorative stained glass. The original cornicing and ceiling rose can be found above, while an original fireplace provides a smart focal point for the room. Engineered-oak flooring runs underfoot across this floor.

On the second floor are three double bedrooms and a shared family bathroom. The main bedroom occupies the front of the apartment, and contains bespoke fitted wardrobes with an integrated dressing table, as well as a pretty cast-iron fireplace, finished with a neutral white-painted surround. The second and third bedrooms have further storage space, while sash windows in all the bedrooms frame verdant views over neighbouring gardens.

The Area

The apartment is located within easy reach of the independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs of Stoke Newington and Newington Green; Esters and Jolene are particular neighbourhood favourites. Much-loved Church Street is home to The Spence Bakery, Whole Foods and The Good Egg, as well as many other independent businesses. A short walk away is Primeur; recently described as “the perfect neighbourhood restaurant”, it serves modern European cuisine and natural wine on nearby Petherton Road.

There are several green spaces nearby; Abney Park and Cemetery and Clissold Park with its tennis courts, cafe, beautiful lakes, and resident deer are local favourites. Stoke Newington is very popular with young families, in part due to the number of good schools in the area. Particularly noteworthy are the Betty Layward Primary and Clissold School.

Both Stoke Newington and Rectory Road stations are a short walk from Clissold Crescent and run London Overground services to Liverpool Street in around 10 minutes, or Seven Sisters in around four minutes, for connections to the Underground. A number of buses run into central London and the neighbouring Dalston area.
