This beautiful and charming Georgian terraced townhouse is situated in desirable Islington, just off the trendy Upper Street. The sitting room emanates Islington’s quirky yet fashionable character, with its colorful decor, and interesting features such as the wooden coffee table and antique grandfather clock. There is also a flat screen TV and ample seating with the two plush sofas. The original wooden floors lead towards the rear of the property into another living area, piled high with beautiful wooden bookcases and relaxing armchairs.
Moving into the basement area, the open-plan, modern kitchen and dining area is complimented by the huge windows at either end of the room. The dining area, with its wooden paneled floors, spotlights and white dining table (with seating for up to 6) is modern and airy. The kitchen, towards the rear of the property, is sleek and sophisticated with dark wooden worktops coupled with bright white kitchen units. The checkerboard floor adds a further bohemian touch. With the addition of a utility room (including a small toilet) you won’t be short of everyday kitchen appliances for all the domestic and culinary desires.
The remaining floors boast three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The first 2 double bedrooms can be found on the first floor – both are decorated in line with the property, and the neutral colours and wooden floors, paired with the large bright windows create a relaxing space to unwind in the evenings. There is the added luxury of a flat screen TV in both rooms.
On the same floor there is a shower room with a heated towel rail and a modern monochrome tiled floor.
Moving upstairs into the converted attic there is remaining double bedroom and large bathroom. This floor benefits from heaps of natural light due to the gorgeous original Georgian attic windows. The large bathroom boasts a free-standing roll top bath and is decorated in pale tones for a truly relaxing experience. Wooden paneling lines the floor in the double bedroom, which is minimally decorated and offers ample space – certainly in keeping with the other double bedrooms. There is also an extra toilet in this attic space.
Taking the stairs winding down from the top of the house outside to the garden, a large leafy space with a wooden outside dining set and a parasol can be found. This is a fabulous space, no more so because it’s a real rarity for an inner-city London home.
The location of this beautiful period home couldn’t be more perfect. Just a 7 minute walk from Angel Station, right in the heart of elegant Islington – and just 10 minutes on the tube to Central London. With a mixture of cultural shops, pubs and cafés, Islington is a favorite drinking and dining spot for many. The high street, historically located along Camden Passage (less than 5 minutes from the property) in the village of Islington, has since been eclipsed by the more modern Upper Street, although people will still head here for the antiques market and boutiques. Vintage shops nestled between the fashionable shops in this area. For couples or families wanting a unique city break in an area packed with style and close to the centre, Islington is a great choice.
