Once a Victorian butcher’s 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
‘Art Nouveau’ 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
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.
