Two double bedrooms, a private roof terrace and a buitl in wardrobe, all in a fabulous split level maisonette that’s just 0.5 miles from Finsbury Park Station.
Beautifully trimmed hedges, a red and black chequerboard pathway and a mint green front door welcomes you on arrival to this mid-terrace Victorian building. Furthering that excellent first impression is the communal hallway, partly decked in rich wooden floorboards and partly laid in a gorgeous speckled grey Saxony carpet. Upon entry, you’ll encounter an open archway leading from the hallway to the light filled kitchen before you. Here, you’ll spy a multitude of shelving units in a variety of shapes and sizes, from the floating spice holder to the cheeky inbuilt wine rack (great for storing anything from your Merlots and Malbecs to your David Shrigley tea towels and weeping Devil’s Ivy). In the reception room, you’ll find a magnificent original Victorian fireplace and an industrial style pendant lamp hanging from the ceiling that can be pulled down and dimmed, perfect for illuminating all those late night pool games you’ve been dying to have. Adjacent awaits the first double bedroom, fitted with a floor-to-ceiling inbuilt wardrobe boasting a clothes rail, plentiful shelves and deep overhead cupboards. Stepping down the hallway and descending a few short steps, you’ll arrive at the master bedroom, boasting a rather unique feature of an in-wall safe that can be easily hidden behind your favourite Sebastien Tellier poster, framed Martin Parr print or novelty sombrero collection. Through a pair of double glazed doors, you’ll find the west-facing roof terrace overlooking neighbouring residential gardens.
Upper Tollington Park is adjoined to thriving Stroud Green Road with more restaurants, coffeeshops and drinking spots than you can shake a stick at. For the insider’s guide, head on over to daviesdavies.co.uk
