A few words from the owner:
What do you love about your home/property?
The first thing that attracted us to the flat is the tree lined street with its beautiful red brick houses. It is set in a conservation area and still feels very special when you turn into the road. The flat has high ceilings and great natural light throughout the day especially the spacious south facing sitting room. The separate kitchen has tall French windows overlooking the street with a small balcony, which has been really nice to open up in the summer. The second bedroom has been incredibly useful as a guest room and home office.
Why are you selling?
We are moving primarily further out of London to be closer to family. Additionally this will enable us some more space for the pets we have always wanted.
What do you love about the area?
The location is fantastic - being situated between Stoke Newington's Church Street, Islington's Upper Street and Highbury Barn. Clissold Park and Highbury Fields are both only 10 minutes walk away and offer lots of green open space.
There are a wide selection of independent restaurants, cafes and shops. Greengrocers Seasons and Blossoms which we use daily is at the end of the road. Franks Canteen has excellent coffee and doubles up as a brilliant restaurant at night. Established local restaurants Farang, Little Sardegna and Primeur have also been favourites. There always seem to be new places opening up. The transport is very convenient with Arsenal, Highbury & Islington and Finsbury Park Tube Stations all a short walk away. There are frequent buses from the end of road to Central London and the City.
