South Tottenham has long been a haven for North London’s house bargain hunters.
It’s easy to see why as prices have (on London standards) remained low given all the benefits:
A vibrant area with a large number of Victorian houses. National Rail into Liverpool Street. On the boundary of tube zones 2 and 3, with its own Overground station and the newly modernised Victoria line from Seven Sisters. The gym, pool and squash courts at Tottenham Green Leisure Centre. The river Lea with its walks to Lea Valley Park or Hackney Marshes.
But is the “market” finally catching up with what some of us have long known? A 2 bedroom house on Gladesmore Road is currently for sale with an asking price of £409,995. Ok, it’s been done up very nicely with bare wood floors, lovely fireplaces, fitted kitchen, etc. The decor is certainly “in sympathy” with its Victorian heritage and ticks all the middle-class house-hunter’s boxes.*
