Bridge Gardens, London N16
FULL DESCRIPTION This property has been taken 'back to brick' and fully refurbished, with new wiring, plumbing, kitchen and bathroom. Accommodation briefly comprises good sized reception on the ground floor, with lounge diner and kitchen breakfast room, and two double bedrooms and bathroom upstairs.The house forms part of a private terrace in a secure gated mews, with front and rear gardens. The property is immaculate throughout. SITUATION Bridge Gardens is a charming mews located at the very start of Green Lanes, adjacent to Newington Green, which has a comprehensive array of eateries, boutiques and convenience stores. Lizzies on the Green is a staple first stop for most locals of a morning for a coffee and many friendships have been forged waiting for hot drinks to arrive sitting on the Green. Jolene bakery and restaurant is a Mecca for locals also, selling a daily changing menu of sandwiches, hot dishes, pizzas and baked goods. For a more discerning palate, Perilla restaurant is a cherished neighbourhood eatery, serving exquisitely prepared European cuisine with a contemporary twist, in a chilled out continental setting. La Primeur on nearby Petherton Road is a firm favourite across London, again spontaneous and contemporary serving small plates and wine on shared tables in a converted garage. There are also plenty of more mundane but essential stores. A Tesco Express for day to day groceries, locksmith and cobblers, and of course perennially popular Newington Fruit and Veg; join the queue and let it pull you through the shop as you fill your basket with every fruit and vegetable imaginable and have it all put in brown paper bags at the end in the quantities you chose! Locals tend to congregate in The Leconfield - a simple, spacious pub with sofas and a British Menu, or The Acoustic Brasserie with a more continental offering. Nearby of course are the attractions of Stoke Newington and Clissold Park; and then on to Dalston to the East, or Highbury, Islington and the City to the East. For the young at heart and creative; Kingsland Rd offers a vibrant array of attractions with eateries from around the globe, heading down to Silicon Roundabout and Old Street; a very pleasant bike ride away. Stoke Newington Church Street offers a great selection of independent boutiques, with firm favourites like The Good Egg for brunches and Whole Foods for the weekly shop.. Clissold Park offer fantastic open greenery for the family to enjoy on sunny days; Clissold House for a more formal meal but a surprising range of attractions - paddling pool, deer and even a butterfly dome. Runners love the area; Abney Park wood and the cemetary offers secluded tracks to jog through. Across to Stoke Newington Train Station, down to the canal and along to Angel then back up Upper Street and across is a perfect 10k. In terms of transport, there is access to Victoria, Piccadilly and Overground via Canonbury Station - direct into Shoreditch High St for the City worker, or the 141 bus straight down to Moorgate - although to be fair most City working locals walk or cycle to the office.
