Located in Haringey, a borough in North London, the Folium is a great attraction for nature lovers with its abundance of green spaces nearby. The most distinctive one is Alexandra Park that can be reached within 20 minutes. Home to Alexandra Palace, it offers 196 acres of green hills, alleys, and gardens. However, much closer than that, there is Highgate Cemetery, one of the Magnificent Seven cemeteries in London, which has become a place of particular interest for tourists.
Although the area offers a shelter from noisy and crowded streets of the capital, the North Circular Road, which forms the northern part of a ring-road around central London, is just 10 minutes away. It connects various suburbs and other major roads, some of which pass through the very heart of London.
The Folium is a residential community, comprised of a complex of mid-rise buildings and surrounded by the greenery of Coppetts Wood. The facades of the houses are covered with a simple brick pattern, interspersed with sleek full-height windows.
There is a street passing through the complex right in the middle, allowing cars to access the territory. The whole area of the Folium is adorned by various trees and plants, including informal pocket greens and a play garden.
Planted with plenty of trees and other greenery, the Folium offers the places for children to play and adults to wander around without having to leave the area.
The Folium also includes car parking spaces and a secure bike store.
To ensure security, the houses are equipped with a video entry system.
The residential complex offers 80 homes, including one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, and four-bedroom townhouses.
The interior is designed in a contemporary style with white painted walls and floor-to-ceiling windows illuminating the space. The underfloor heating throughout the living area makes sure the residents are comfortable, no matter what the weather.
The bedrooms come with floor-to-ceiling built-in wardrobes, light grey carpets, and brushed metal sockets, while the kitchens are fully fitted with NEFF appliances.

Founded in 1963 as Ealing Family Housing Association, the company changed its name to Catalyst Communities Housing Association in 2006.
