Mr Clarke thinks :
The rather grand, library layout of the living space feels slightly scholastic yet super cosy come the evening.
Set between Hornsey and Harringay stations and just a hop and a skip to Turnpike Lane underground, Falkland Road is the setting for this picture perfect, split-level first floor flat. A converted Victorian House reveals a thoughtfully designed, quirky layout, two bedroom home, its exterior facade an instant pull with its Victorian-style decorative sash windows, a pitched roof elaborating on this home’s period particulars.
Inside, the flat is split over levels and there is much to enjoy and even more to consider when thinking about the potential of this home. The stairs from the main shared entrance lead up to the rear of the home first of all, and to the family bathroom, kitchen and second bedroom.
The bathroom has been renovated in a way that reflects London style; the metro tiles covering the walls in white and teal, shine bright in this bathroom which has a sunny disposition. Modern bathroom fittings include a separate bath and shower - a brilliant touch.
The kitchen has a butchers block style worktop, makes nifty use of hanging space for pots and pans and a slick charcoal splashback show this kitchen as something of a chef's domain. It is simple in its style but much has been done to maximise surface space where possible. Next door, the bedroom enjoys view of the shared garden, green and lush. It is an ideal second bedroom spot, lovely and light. The flow of bamboo wood flooring through to the second bedroom at the back and splash of aqua on the wall, makes something of a statement in this modern, simple kitchen. The island is both decorative and functional, providing additional worktop space and for those balmier days, the door opens onto steps leading down to the garden, so you always feel connected to nature, even in a first floor flat arrangement.
Mrs Clarke loves :
What more could you want from a converted Victorian home?
Moving back towards the front of the house you ascend the next part of the stairs and through to the main bedroom, a spacious and bright double room with a beautiful feature wallpaper.
It is at the front of the house that Falkland Road really sings. Those glorious Victorian windows make the living space something of a showstopper, letting the light in so that you can sit and read to your heart’s content. It is a library-esque living room, full of character and richness that wills you to stay for hours. Wide enough for a dining table to be set for evenings entertaining friends.
The bones of this house are strong and sturdy, its craftsmanship notable from the moment you walk in. In a plot twist, unexpected from an upper level flat, there is a large cellar offering more potential - the design ideas start to whirr immediately.
Outside a private garden is shared between flat owners, so that when you return from a days work or play, there is a community atmosphere right inside the grounds of your own home to enjoy, tucked away from the bustle of vibrant North London.
- Setting : Harringay is experiencing something of a renaissance, don’t miss out.
- Plot Twist : A cellar? In a first floor flat? Yep!
- Three words : Fabulously. Split. Level.

Harringay – Falkland Road
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.
You are spoilt for incredible green spaces here - Fairland Park, Lordship Recreation Ground, and Alexandra Palace whom we assume needs no introduction. If live music is your thing, then head to Jam in a Jar - you're always guaranteed a good night.
If you wanted to venture further out you've got the overground east and west from Harringay Green Lanes station, National rail and more from Finsbury Park. There's also a great selection of schools and nurseries. Bingo.
Good time vibes.
