Comments from the owner:
What do you love most about your home? We love the open-plan upstairs area, it gets light from both ends of the house but is also wonderfully cosy in the evenings. It's the perfect space for entertaining, watching movies and sports, cooking, and relaxing. The large bedroom gets loads of light and we use it for an office and music room, and the other bedroom we've used as a calming space for sleeping. The garden has been an absolute joy as well with morning sunshine to enjoy breakfast and coffee in the garden, and when it has been really warm, it's nice in the shade and breeze. The built-in benches and storage allow us to relax and have friends over for bbq's, and I've even worked from home on the table out there many days in the summer!
Why are you moving? We honestly can't really believe we're moving, we love this home and area so much. But all our friends are south of the river now, and we've decided to go for a larger home and follow the crowd so we can have our friends and family around more often again.
What do you love about the area? Everything! The pubs nearby (Drapers Arms, Smokehouse, Crown, Three Johns), the coffee shops (Southpaw!), the restaurants - everything from high end to cheap eats, the fact that you are only a few steps away from the heart of Barnsbury or the bustle of Chapel Market and centre of Angel, the ability to walk to the City and Oxford Street. Even the corner shop is owned by a lovely family and is like having an extension of your pantry a few feet away.
With a wealth of period appeal, superbly blended with stylish interiors and bespoke detailing, this beautiful property provides a stunning home in a sought after central location in the heart of Islington.
The kitchen area itself comprises a sleek range of matching wall and base units with work surfaces and tiling, incorporating inset sink unit, induction with overhead extractor, double wall-mounted oven, and further integrated appliances. A wide opening leads through into the breath-taking reception area, with a feature cast iron fireplace and wonderful space for relaxing and entertaining. Descending to the lower level there are two well-sized double bedrooms, each with inbuilt storage, plus a stylish shower room with a contemporary style suite and elegant tiling. At the rear of the property, there is a charming private patio garden that has also been remodeled to offer a perfect escape and place to unwind after a busy day.
The property is enviably located within just a few minutes' walk of Angel, with Kings Cross St Pancras also nearby offering unrivaled cross-London, national and international rail links. This vibrant location provides a multitude of shops and amenities, with the Regent's Canal also just moments away, and nearby Granary Square offering a further array of fashionable bars, restaurants, and cafes.
