Mr Clarke thinks :
The stylish, low maintenance and contemporary garden is ideal for relaxing and entertaining.
This beautifully renovated two-bedroom home, with private south-facing garden, can be found on a handsome Victorian terrace in Noel Park. The pretty workers-cottage sits on Gladstone Avenue, a quiet street a short walk from the centre of Wood Green.
The interior is bursting with character and there are so many lovely little nods to the past, which are accentuated by excellent levels of natural light. The exposed wooden floors, big sash windows and modern styling complement each other to create a tranquil feeling.
The back of the cottage opens up to stunning garden that was designed by Daniel Combes. The contemporary planting and clever landscaping is juxtaposed with the Victorian property and the result is home that you want to spend time in with friends and family.
Mrs Clarke loves :
Noel Park has a soul. There is a rich history to this place and the community are just so friendly. Wood Green is nearby for day-day bits and bobs, Ally Pally is lovely for a walk and Crouch End and Muswell Hill are nice to wander around. You feel so far away from the hustle of the capital but you can be in the thick of it in moments.
To the front of the house there is a small private garden. Enter through the front door and you are greeted with a grand sense of light and space. The double reception room is elegantly divided into a sitting area and a dining area. The kitchen sits neatly at the back of the property and it is effortlessly connected to the garden via a door. There is also a cloakroom and lots of storage downstairs.
Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a bright modern bathroom. The boarded loft provides a generous amount of storage space.
- Three words : Victorian. Modern. Garden
Our favourite part
The garden is a peaceful oasis
There is something very special about this place
We've always loved Noel Park, maybe because it has a story and maybe because the community is just so friendly. This is a place that has soul and if you live here you will understand what we mean.
Laid out by the Artizans’, Labourers’ and General Dwellings Company between 1883 and 1907. The estate was named after the company’s chairman, Ernest Noel MP who led the transformation of the 100 acres of farmland belonging to Dovecote House (also known as Ducketts) into homes for working people. The estate’s architecture is distinguished by the turret-like gables surmounting many corner houses and some of these seem to have been designed to resemble dovecotes in honour of the farm that they replaced.
A short hop step and jump from Noel Park you find yourself in Wood Green, which is a bustling little corner of London that has everything you could possibly need... and more beyond.
Ally Pally is across the road, Crouch End & Muswell Hill a little further beyond and, if they aren't enough for you, then hop on the bus or the Piccadilly Line and you will be in the middle of town quicker than you can read the Evening Standard.
