Carysfort Road's playful, three storey late Victoria terraces are one of Stoke Newington's most striking features. The imaginative colour scheme which spans the length of the street compliments the decorative external plaster work, and the low walls separating front gardens from passers-by reveal adorable front gardens. Carysfort Road was known historically for being home to a piano manufacturer, and nearby, some of the original buildings still remain. There is nonetheless a uniformity which supports Carysfort Road's identity, and the buildings are not spoiled by extravagant modern appendages. The original features have been lovingly preserved, and the double height bay windows in particular are a stunning feature which floods the interior of each home with natural light, all year round. Carysfort Road's inhabitants also benefit from being able to apply for private on-street parking permits from the local Borough Council.
The location: delicately balanced between ever-trendy Stoke Newington and boutique Highbury means locals can enjoy the best of both. Stoke Newington Church Street's organic food stores, craft tap houses and vintage shops are within easy reach, as are the open green expanses of Highbury Fields, Clissold Park, and Finsbury Park. Likewise, Highbury's greengrocers and delicatessens are a short distance away.
Access to Central London is straightforward and Stoke Newington's easy going young professional demographic exploit the frequent services of the 141 and 341 bus routes, which provide regular services to Tower Bridge and Waterloo respectively. Old Street is a short distance away, and Stoke Newington is also serviced by a useful Overground station, which connects Liverpool Street station to Enfield.
