A mint blue bathroom suite, lots of lace doilies and oodles of potential on offer in this £2 million Muswell Hill home

Take a walk back in time as you step into this home on one of Muswell Hill’s most popular street addresses. A rare, end of terrace home on Church Crescent has come onto the market in N10, and it’s quite the sight.

‘In need of modernisation’ is somewhat of an understatement in this six bedroom home found just moments away from the Broadway. With 3392 sq ft of living space currently arranged as two duplex apartments, the property will take a buyer with a project-driven mind and foresight to completely refurbish the space into what could become a modern family home or set of flats.

There’s a lot to work with. The distinctive property boasts high ceilings, period detailing and sizeable rooms as well as an impressive frontage and 60ft south-facing rear garden backing onto the woodland of Parkland Walk, but it’s likely the interior décor as it currently stands is more likely to catch your eye.

Most eye-catching is undoubtedly the spearmint blue bathroom suite, matched rather garishly with rose pink blinds and furnishings, in one of the three bathrooms in the property. The kitchen is equally ‘retro’ in design, with the enduring smell of diet staples Smash and Vesta curries no doubt lingering in the air. Elsewhere in the home, you’ll find lace doilies, clashing patterns and floral printed designs, a veritable treasure trove for the post-war interiors collector or fan of Edith’s House in Crouch End.

Despite its quirky current guise, the home is ripe picking for a buyer with an eye for design and a modern touch looking for an opportunity to convert a tired and eccentric home into a modern marvel in one of north London’s most coveted postcodes.

Church Crescent, Muswell Hill, N10 is on the market for £2,000,000 with Goldschmidt & Howland, 020 8347 2600
