Hornsey Road London N19
Once a Victorian butcher‚Äôs shop, this remarkable and delightfully unique two-bedroom live/work maisonette can be found a short walk from Stroud Green and Archway. Replete with an array of beautifully restored original features, some Grade II-listed, it offers over 1,200 sq ft of internal accommodation across two levels.
Much of the kitchen is Grade II-listed, and Historic England make particular mention of the tiles which adorn the walls and floors, the latter an intricate mosaic of green and white. At ceiling height there is a glazed frieze composed of wonderful ‚ÄėArt Nouveau‚Äô tiles.
Two marble-topped counters are positioned on either side of the room, one with hand-painted scenes of rural landscapes which are thought to be illustrations of Hampstead Heath from the period. At the rear, there rests an original wooden payment kiosk, its shelves and fitted desk creating a brilliant study.
Beyond this is a sitting room, with original wooden floorboards and fireplace, and views over the courtyard garden. Adjacent, is a workshop which could be used as another study or spare bedroom. The old staircase which would have provided access upstairs is now redundant but has been cleverly repurposed as a stepped storage space instead. Access to the courtyard garden and patio is on this floor. Neither outside space is demised to the property, however both are used solely by the maisonette. They are gated, private and get the afternoon sun.
The two bedrooms and shared bathroom are situated on the lower-ground floor. In the larger bedroom, plumbing is in place to allow installation of a generous en-suite and there is a large window onto the courtyard. Both have zoned underfloor heating, whilst the whole apartment benefits from an air-to-air heat exchanger, which is effective at circulating fresh air throughout the home.
