Mr Clarke thinks :
The incredibly calming ambience that soothes you as soon as you enter.
An exceptional home and the first completed project of a talented husband-and-wife design studio, Studio Hallett Ike. The pair have designed and styled the home from top to bottom to create an extremely sophisticated and stylish space.
You enter the flat through a bespoke Corten steel door into an entrance hallway. You already get the sense of the very calming and inviting ambience, with the help of warm and tactile materials throughout. The living room is wonderfully proportioned and is bathed in natural light; the contemporary styling compliments the gorgeous period details such as the original cornice. This contemporary yet classic feel pervades the rest of this extraordinary apartment.
In the kitchen next-door you’ll find bespoke and Douglas Fir joinery and stainless steel work surfaces. It has a beautiful pink hue that becomes more intense during the evening sunlight. There is a floor to ceiling door to the garden which you can leave open during the summer evenings, a playful entrance for the cat, and a skylight. The rear extension forms the dining area of the kitchen which opens onto the lush planted garden. An array of ferns and grasses can be found here, as well as a raised area for seating and entertaining.
Mrs Clarke loves :
I’m a stones throw from Finsbury Park and a short walk to some of North London's most exciting districts.
Turn around and you’ll see charred English Larch cladding to the rear extension whose colour constantly changes depending on the weather and time of year; during the winter months it has silvery hues, in the summer it’s warmer.
Back inside you’ll find the sumptuous main bedroom and a luxurious shower room, finished in terrazzo. The wonderful second bedroom or home office is just before you head out to the garden.
- Three words : Minimal. Classic. Considered.
Our favourite part
The window seat in the second bedroom/ home office - the perfect spot to sit, pause and be present.
A feast of cultures!
Here is where you'll find a magnificent combination of cultures. You just need to walk down Green Lanes to experience the wonderful mix of mega-kebab houses, coffee shops, a truly global selection of restaurants, whole food stores and everything in between.
Head to Crouch End and wander down Stroud Green Road - you're in for a treat - and take a visit to our friends at Mosey Home, Finsbury Park.
Victorian and Edwardian terraces of "The Ladder", lots of new developments springing up (Woodberry Down is now well established)
You are spoilt for incredible green spaces here - Finsbury Park, obviously, but also Clissold Park and Woodberry Wetlands are nearby.
If you wanted to venture further out you've got the overground east and west from Harringay Green Lanes station, Piccadilly line from Manor House, National rail and more from Finsbury Park. There's also a great selection of schools and nurseries. Bingo.
