Take a butcher’s at the Victorian interiors of this London home

Handpainted tiles and woodwork date from its former life as a meat and grocery shop

Ornate tiles and an original wooden kiosk are just some of the Victorian features preserved inside this exceptional north London property – once a butcher’s shop.

Would-be owners will have ample storage space in the home’s vast kitchen – parts of which are Grade-II listed. Long marble counters and green and white patterned tiles are all original and are hand-painted with country scenes.

This was where A. Hancock Butchers served its customers back in 1890 when the building was used as a family shop, and the name is still visible on the faded sign on its facade.

Historic details continue elsewhere in the two-bedroom maisonette, with original floorboard and fireplace in the living room, and a staircase now converted into a storage space. A workshop space is also ripe for refurb.

The London property – listed with The Modern House for £700,000 – has access to both a private patio and courtyard garden. It’s located close to the Crouch End high street as well as Archway and Finsbury Park stations.
