Hackney house description

Safe space

London is one of the world’s greatest cities, with six million souls, all seemingly jostling for the same metre of pavement. Naturally, there’s nothing more life affirming than a bit of hurly burly, but just occasionally one needs a bit of a rest.

Step forward, Birchington Road. This stylish, three bedroom Victorian house rests quietly on a leafy street in dreamy Highgate. Up here the air’s a little fresher, the atmosphere, a little quieter. So bring your brood and get ready to unwind… and unwind… and un…win…d.

Mother care

Your hostess is the proud parent of three adorable kids. In a previous life she traveled the world from Cambodia, to Venezuela, to India as a documentary film maker. She nurtures a strong sense of style. See if you can spot some of the interior design magazines from which she’s drawn her inspiration, as well as mementos from the far corners of the globe.

Cloud surfing

For everything in Birchington Road is soft to the touch. The sitting room’s pale stripped floorboards support the most yielding of couches, and the original fireplace, Turkish rugs and gentle artwork will have you curling up in a cosy doze.

If you’re anything like your hostess, you’ll spend much of your time in the kitchen, if nothing else, admiring the pastel blue Smeg fridge. Take a look at the kids’ artwork on the magnetic black board, your party may consider adding a few pieces of their own, that is, if the little ones can be persuaded away from the jungle gym in the garden.

Upstairs you’ll find two gorgeous single bedrooms (one of which transforms to a double), a spacious master double and a family bathroom. And on the top floor there’s playroom lavishly stuffed with toys.

Back into the fray

With its many green spaces (Highgate Woods, Hampstead Heath, Waterloo Park) Highgate is a family friendly part of town. Indeed, if you want to play spot the Bugaboo, you’ll be racking up points faster than you can down lattes. There are lovely cafes, shops and restaurants all around, while Oxford Street is just forty five minutes away.

                              Location

                              Nestled between woods and parkland and perched atop a steep hill with sweeping views of the City below, Highgate is perhaps the closest London villages get to resembling the real thing. Not only does it look like a village, all clusters of Georgian townhouses, winding lanes and cutesy shops, but the area has community noticeboards crammed full of events on almost every street corner.

                              At the very height of all this urban tranquillity are the Highgate ponds – three large freshwater swimming ponds (two designated single sex and one for mixed bathing) open all year round.
