Fruits of the earth
A flavourful family home, Kelross Road II is one to be shared and savoured. From the garden’s billowing roses to the kitchen’s copper pots and pans, here there are plenty of delicacies. Antiques sit on cool concrete floors, jam jars are stuffed with spices and herbs, and exposed bricks and creamy white walls combine the old and the new. Should the little ones have their fill of toys, or the grown-ups tire of stocking the vintage dining table, the eateries of Upper Street are satisfyingly close.
Milk and honey
If there’s a sweet tang to this townhouse, it’s because one of your hosts makes jam for a living. Naturally, their favourite room is the kitchen – at once handy and stylish.
Save Highbury’s greens for later and opt instead for the sweeping kitchen. Its surfaces are all the brighter for the glass doors and wide skylights, while the stocky wardrobe is a family heirloom from eastern France.
Whether you take morning tea on the sitting room’s corner sofa, or perch on a barstool for breakfast, the garden is the best place for lazy afternoons. And come sundown, you’ll find the leafy double bedroom, characterful children’s room and seagrass-carpeted master all upstairs.
