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). It is here that you’ll find a picturesque two bedroom lower maisonette, complete with two reception rooms and a private garden.
Oak wooden floorboards are found beneath you and contemporary coving frames the tall ceiling of the bay-fronted reception room. Brilliant white walls surround you, interrupted only by a soft, slate grey painted chimney breast that hosts the cast-iron fireplace. Inbuilt shelving and cupboards are fitted on either side, allowing for plentiful space to store your favourite Margaret Atwood novels, display trinkets from far-flung places, and house a television. Adjacent is the second reception room, which is currently being used as a home office, but can easily be transformed into a third bedroom, dining room, and/or playroom. Next is the impressively sized kitchen, boasting a deep bay with plentiful room for a family dining table. Black grouting has been paired with white tiles for the splashback, offering a dramatic yet tasteful backdrop. You’ll also spy entry to the L-shaped garden here, which boasts a quaint patio area, artificial lawn, and adorable wooden shed. Downstairs, you’ll find a deep inbuilt storage closet, the master bathroom, and both double bedrooms, each of which feature engineered wooden floorboards, brilliant white painted walls, and contemporary spotlighting. Victorian-style monochromatic patterned tiles make a striking feature in the bathroom, accompanied by a clawfoot rolltop bathtub with a dual-headed rainforest shower.
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.
