Features and description

  • Freehold
A deceptively spacious home lies behind the delightful frontage of Seaview Cottage on Southgate Road, De Beauvoir. The current owners have used a neutral palette of colours and materials to create a serene environment, amplified by the abundance of natural light within the house and its position set back from the road. Seaview Cottage is situated in the heart of De Beauvoir amongst the handsome Georgian terraces and wide, tree-lined streets that define the locality.

The Tour

A charming patio garden greets visitors to Seaview Cottage. Climbing plants form a natural arch above the front door, and a timber sash window set in the rendered first floor completes the unassuming façade. A long entrance hall within leads past a walk-in shower and WC, passing a space that could be used for a multitude of purposes, and finally opening into a modern kitchen and dining area. A large skylight over the dining table illuminates the space, as does the kitchen window overlooking the garden. Full-height tri-fold glazed doors open from the open-plan living area onto the tropical courtyard garden, also visible from two of the bedrooms.

There are three double bedrooms on the ground floor, two of which share a lightwell. The main bedroom is furnished with louvred timber shutters and a spacious walk-in wardrobe, and has views onto the garden. It has a private door onto the bathroom, which can also be accessed via the corridor. A further double bedroom lies upstairs at the front of the plan; there is also another room upstairs which could be used as a single bedroom or a study.

A neutral palette has been used throughout Seaview Cottage, with walls painted white and simple timber flooring. The kitchen worktops are timber too, and one wall of the hallway has been clad in vertical timber slats. Black doorframes mark the entrances to the living area and main bedroom, a smart detail that has been repeated in the frames of the ground floor lightwell.

Outdoor Space

The central courtyard garden is visually impressive and makes ingenious use of space. Mature banana trees form a natural wall and canopy around the garden; climbing plants have taken up residence on two of the walls, and a fig tree and other large plants add to the feeling of tranquillity. The garden is laid to gravel, with a timber walkway around the perimeter. The front patio garden provides further green-fingered opportunities and the lightwell serving two of the ground floor bedrooms has also been planted.

The Area

Seaview Cottage is conveniently positioned for the pubs, restaurants, shops and cafes of both Islington and Dalston. The Scolt Head and De Beauvoir Arms are both excellent local pubs. The De Beauvoir Deli is a few moments away and is a firm favourite with locals, offering locally sourced produce alongside seasonal fruit and vegetables, sandwiches and salads. Regent’s Canal is within easy reach of Seaview Cottage, providing a gateway to the rest of London. The shops, galleries and restaurants of Shoreditch are also close at hand.

Haggerston Station is 10 minutes walk away, where the London Overground has connections to Canary Wharf via Canada Water. Regular buses run to the City and beyond from Kingsland Road. Kings Cross St Pancras is two miles to the west.
