Full property description
This charming one-bedroom apartment occupies the second floor of a Victorian residence in the heart of Tufnell Park. The apartment has been decorated by its owner to a meticulous standard throughout, resulting in a set of spaces that honour their traditional proportions while prioritising a modern approach to living.
Its Victorian architectural features define the exterior, starting with the intelligent terrace houses on Fortess Road, which all have façades of London stock brick punctuated by sash windows.
Upon entry via a staircase to the second floor, the apartment opens out to a large and incredibly bright open-plan reception room. It is characterised by dual-aspect windows illuminating natural light; this space bears all the hallmarks of Victorian design, including reconditioned pine floorboards and an elegant fireplace (decorative use only). The ceiling is finished with white panels, providing better thermal insulation, and brand-new electric heaters were recently installed to create a comfortable living environment. The kitchen features excellent cabinetry space, laminate worktops, and a newly installed Bosch induction hob and oven.
The main bedroom is adjacent to the reception room. This peaceful space is similar to the living room, albeit on a slightly smaller scale, with high ceilings and a large sash window that frames leafy views over neighbouring gardens.
It is well placed for access to the beautiful mix of independent shops on Fortess Road and the amenities of Kentish Town, Hampstead, and Camden Town. Tufnell Park station (Northern Line) is less than a minute's walk, and numerous local buses (134, 390, and 4) provide easy access to the City and the West End. Gospel Oak station directly links to Stratford, Richmond, and Clapham Junction. Hampstead Heath is situated to the West, with its undulating walks, bathing ponds, and tennis courts.
