Some words from the owner:
What do you love about your property?
The floor to ceiling windows are what drew me to the house originally, it's east facing so you get the sun in the mornings which makes it really bright and warm and it's also a really energy efficient house keeping the costs down. I didn't want the hassle and maintenance of a period property but I also wanted to buy a freehold so this was ideal. It's a really low maintenance, hassle-free place so you can lock up and leave if you travel a lot or want to use it as a pied-a-terre. The mews is great as it is very secure, it's set back in the courtyard so it's quiet and the neighbours are really friendly.
Why are you selling?
It was the perfect starter home for us but as we have moved out to the countryside to be near family and no longer work in London we are no longer using the house and it is time for someone else to enjoy it as much as we did.
What do you love about the area?
The are is really great, you are spoilt for choice as you're at the intersection for Islington to the west, Dalston to the east, Stoke Newington to the north and De Beauvoir to the south. There are lots of shops, places to eat, parks etc. all within walking distance. Some great pubs in the area like the Wellington, the Hunter S. Thomson, the Talbot, the Scolts Head and the De Beauvoir Arms. It's also walkable into the City, and an easy 25 minute to Canary Wharf on the overground. We always loved walking to London Fields and Broadway Market on Saturday along the canal, and Ottolengi on Sunday for brunch.
