Built during a time of Victorian revival, the 1890s saw Birnam Road blessed with a distinctive row of houses featuring architecturally outstanding red-bricked facades, which still remains to this day (fun fact).
Original wooden floorboards greet you in the reception room, hosting a magnificent deep bay fitted with large sash windows. A dozen wooden floating shelves mounted within two deep enclaves provide a stylish storage solution for books of all shapes and sizes, those dusty photographs from your travelling years or perhaps even a rather fanciful hat collection. Sidestepping into the kitchen, you’ll spy sleekly inbuilt appliances (including a dishwasher), understated white subway tiling and quartz laminate worktops. The master bedroom resides on the same floor, and offering access to the garden. Part laid to a vibrant grassy lawn, part tiled with cracked-effect concrete and part enclosed by thick walls of climbing ivy, this tranquil outdoor oasis faces south; perfect for long summery nights of al fresco dining, secluded crunching in piles of autumnal leaves and building tiny little snowmen on the rare London snow day. Gallivanting downstairs to the bathroom, you’re welcomed by a generosity of space and a wonderful double ended full-sized bathtub, in addition to a separate walk-in shower enclosure. The second double bedroom also resides downstairs, benefitting from a second entrance to the garden. An exciting added bonus also features in this charming Victorian conversion: an extra room – ideal for use as a spacious storage cupboard, walk-in wardrobe, home office or photographic darkroom.
Location wise, the beautiful Birnam Road is situated terrifically between the amenities of Stroud Green Road and Holloway Road. Try Rusty Bike Café for a stunning (and affordable) Thai fare, or Osteria Tufo for daily changing authentic Italian dishes, both within 0.4 miles of your humble abode.
