Our home

Our 1925 Art Deco house has been refurbished with a Shaker style kitchen and modern family bathroom. Halfway up a hill the back has a great view view over Eastern London. Muswell Hill is a like a village with shops, cafes and a great cinema. We are surrounded by green spaces like Highgate Wood and Alexandra Park and are only 40 minutes from all that central London has to offer.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are five minutes from Muswell Hill where you can find a wide range of shops, cafes, restaurants and cinema. The beautiful spire of St James Church is just up the road. Houses are Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco. It is a much sought after area and you might well bump into someone you saw on TV last night! On one side are the ancient woods of HIghgate and on the other Alexandra Palace and Park. A short walk or bus ride to Highgate Underground or a longer bus ride to Finsbury Park gives you rapid access to the rest of London.
