Further Information

Situated on a quiet residential street resting on the N16/E5 border, this substantial four bedroom Victorian house is conveniently located within easy reach of Church Street, The High Street & excellent transport links.

Wonderfully spacious accommodation in excess of 2,100 sq ft is set out over three storeys & split-levels, offering fantastically proportioned rooms & a flexible layout. The property boasts traditional cast-iron radiators and incredibly, by employing a 'waste-heat' boiler & solar panels, produces more electricity than it consumes.

Generous living & entertaining space on the cavernous lower ground floor features underfloor heating & a fabulously well-appointed kitchen with wraparound work-island, breakfast bar, integrated appliances, plenty of built-in storage, & further zones for dining & reclining. On the split-level there is a stylish tiled shower room; & large study area with underfloor heating (which could also double as an occasional bedroom). A door leads out to the rear garden with its favourable south-westerly aspect & attractive garden room (currently a workshop/studio) with plumbing and electricity. On the ground floor, the entrance hallway features a beautiful tessellated floor & dado panelling, & adjacent to this two larger than average reception rooms with interconnecting doors, feature a large bay window, original ceiling detail, hardwood floor and fireplace with marble surround. Also on this floor is a large double bedroom with bay-window & integral wardrobe. Moving up to the first floor where there is a beautiful family bathroom with tiled floor, dado-panelling, roll-top bath (with ball and claw feet), bidet & two wash hand-basins; & finally two further generous double bedrooms, including a huge master bedroom with bay window & double depth wardrobes.

Alconbury Road is just a short stroll from Stoke Newington Overground (trains to The City) & Church Street's eclectic array of shops, bars & restaurants.
