This impeccably modernised 3-bedroom early Victorian house has been transformed for modern living by Undercover Architecture. It is located on a sought-after residential road with trees that blossom beautifully in the Spring, in the catchment area for the highly regarded Yerbury Primary School.
Internal accommodation is arranged over three floors, plus a separate garden studio. The lower ground floor is entirely open-plan, and offers a wonderful double-aspect kitchen / dining / reception room folding doors at both ends. There is a guest WC on the half landing. The raised ground floor contains a reception room at the front, and a bedroom at the rear with a terrace overlooking the garden. The first floor has two double bedrooms with extensive built-in storage and a bathroom. Externally there is a patio with barbecue area, a plunge pool for cooling off during the summer, and a lawn with borders of bamboo. At the end of the garden is a self-contained studio with folding glazed doors and a fold-down bed for guests.
The house is offered for sale in excellent condition. The use of materials is exemplary, and includes a poured-concrete floor downstairs (with underfloor heating), Italian stone in the bathroom, coloured Vola sanitary ware and bespoke joinery throughout.
Tavistock Terrace forms part of the Mercers Road / Tavistock Terrace Conservation Area. The Underground is available at both Tufnell Park and Archway, and the Overground at Upper Holloway. There are regular buses to central London along Holloway Road, which also offers convenient road access to the M1. The house is located within the catchment area for Yerbury Primary School. The vast open spaces of Hampstead Heath are within easy reach, and there are a number of excellent gastro-pubs in the area, as well as a farmers’ market at the Tufnell Park Tavern.
