Overall Description

This is a substantial Victorian townhouse in a pleasant residential location just off the High Road in East Finchley. The property needs complete internal modernisation but offers buyers the potential to create a much larger modern family home to suit today's lifestyles. There are currently three double bedrooms, a bathroom and cloakroom upstairs but there is scope to convert the large loft space to add one or two further bedrooms and another bath or shower room as so many other homeowners have done in the street, subject to the usual consents. Downstairs there is a sitting and dining room, a downstairs cloakroom and a separate breakfast room and kitchen to the rear which could be combined (and possibly even extended) to create a lovely large family kitchen, again, all subject to consent. The property has an enclosed back garden that is currently made up of well-stocked flower beds but could have a lawn added for children to play on.

Location

The property sits down a pleasant residential street just off the High Road close to the centre of East Finchley so is close to excellent local shops and other amenities and under a ten minute walk from East Finchley Underground Station which is on the Northern Line (six stops to Euston, seven to Kings Cross). The North Circular (A406) is less than a five minute drive away, and the A1 is less than ten. There are very good schools in the local area including the Martin Primary School, Bishop Douglass and Fortismere Schools. Highgate, with its woods, and Hampstead Heath are just to the south of the property so a great place for family walks or cycle rides and there are plenty of sports facilities close-by including Highgate Golf Club and the David Lloyd gym in North Finchley.
