Our featured home this week is on Cascade Avenue, in the famous Rookfields Estate. It has been chosen by the manager of our Muswell Hill offices, Linda Leite, because it is so pretty and she, like so many local people, has a soft spot for the area.
‘Cascade Avenue is within the Rookfields Conservation Area. A small architecturally celebrated enclave of grass- verged, private roads nestling on Muswell Hill’s southern slopes and a short walk from everything Muswell Hill has to offer.
Built by two generations of the Collins family, the building and architect family who lived there in the country house of the same name. The result is an almost rural escape from the busy hubbub of the surrounding London suburbs. It was commenced in 1908 in the fashionable garden suburb style, greatly influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement, hence the medieval country cottage style and the many stylish features within.
The result today is a wonderful relaxing area to live, to come home to and ‘switch off’ from the days exertions every evening. Unusually it has managed to maintain its own avenues and country lanes unadopted from the local authority.’
