Located on Aden Grove, this beautiful two-bedroom maisonette occupies the top floors of a Victorian townhouse, a few minutes from Newington Green. Elegantly designed by Tim Foster of RIBA award-winning Foster Wilson architects, internal accommodation has been re-configured over 800 sq ft, capitalising on natural light through the addition of a secluded roof terrace on the top floor.
Sophisticated interiors are split across two floors. A master bedroom, walk-in dressing room, guest bedroom and bathroom occupy the lower level, while upstairs an open-plan kitchen/dining room stretches across the whole floor and out, through sliding doors, onto a private roof terrace.
The finest contemporary materials and designs have been used to modernise the living space. Upstairs, walnut clad ceilings encapsulate a sunken skylight, bathing the communal living areas in light from overhead. A Morsø wood-burning stove replaces the Victorian fireplace, providing a wonderful focal point for the room, while a Beckermann kitchen in black, glazed sliding doors by sapa, and engineered European oak floorboards, develop a theme of timber and monochrome throughout the upper areas of the apartment.
Downstairs, original sash windows have been persevered in the master and guest bedrooms, allowing plenty of light and air through the lower level. A versatile study is currently configured as a walk-in dressing room with ample amounts of storage, as well as concealed laundry and utility spaces.
The apartment is enviably positioned within walking distance of Newington Green, a wonderfully vibrant area renowned for the variety of its bakeries, cafes, restaurants and wine bars, including the Belle Epoque Patisserie, Primeur, and Yield N16 natural wine shop. There are also a proliferation of mid-century furniture shops and vintage markets. The green itself is a hub for the local community, often hosting fetes, parties and community events.
Newington Green is perfectly located for connections around the city. Buses for Victoria, Kings Cross and Waterloo run 24 hours and Canonbury Overground station is a ten minute walk.
