Substantial four bedroom Victorian house arranged over three levels in the ever popular Whitehall Park conservation area, sought after for its fusion of the charm of Highgate and the accessibility and practicality of Archway (by which I mean it has a branch of Lidl, which is a bit like Waitrose, but half the price, in case you're not already a convert)
Foot-print of circa 157 square meters.
Situated on the Southern slope of Highgate Hill, and close to the Northern line tube stations and local amenities at both Highgate and Archway, with stone-dressed bay windows opening on to an attractive tree lined road, and great access to excellent local schools.
The ground floor consist of a typical Victorian layout, with high ceilings with plaster covings, and period features such as original fireplaces. The main reception is a double-volume through lounge, the original spine wall having been opened up, and a large kitchen/breakfast room, from which French windows open on to a terraced garden, stepping upwards. There is also a separate w.c./cloakroom on this level.
Kitchen is well-appointed, with a big five burner range style cooker, which is like an Aga just not quite so useless.
The first floor accommodation comprises three double bedrooms, again with many retained Victorian period details, and the family bathroom, with modern appliances including shower and bidet (like you get on the continent sometimes: Your chance to find out how our European cousins live.
The second (top) floor has a large timber floored room, with a dormer looking out across London’s skyline from East London to the West End. It's the ideal spot to stable a teenager until it's time for university. Weeks might go by without you having to set eyes on them!
Ample storage in boarded loft accessed from second floor mezzanine landing.
