In the 1830s, Thomas Cubitt honed his skills as a master builder in Stoke Newington before creating the elegant architecture and squares that his name in Belgravia and Pimlico.

Stoke Newington prospered until the early 20th century, when the more well-to-do moved further into the suburbs. Many homes became tenanted, and wartime bombs hastened the demise.

Post-war development brought council blocks, which broke up the street pattern.

But conservation areas endure and gentrifiers have restored many terraces to a modern version of their Victorian past.

Clissold Quarter enhances the streetscape with 158 apartments in three crisply designed blocks clad in warm brick and bronze alongside 54-acre Clissold Park with its open space and tennis pavilion, ornamental lakes, butterfly dome, paddling pool, market garden and listed villa turned into a café.

Many apartments are dual aspect. Prices from £475,000. Call Higgins Homes on 020 8498 6509.
