Overview

About the property

Grand Georgian home, sleeping 6, in trendy Islington

On entering the property you will find immediately to your right the main sitting room. This room features traditional shutters on the large sash windows. On pulling the shutters back natural light floods in illuminating this room. This room would be a great place to relax in or perhaps thumb through the latest best seller. The silvery sage walls and the dark hardwood flooring just add to the sense of quality this room exudes. To the rear of the sitting room you will find yourself stood upon the mezzanine balcony. Look down into the kitchen/dining area below or out onto the South facing split level garden/terrace. This mezzanine balcony gives you a real sense of outside/inside living not to mention allowing natural light to seamlessly pass straight through this property from front to back. Moving down the stairs you are greeted by a very versatile and modern living area. Immediately to the bottom of the stairs is a sumptuous L-Shaped sofa enough to accommodate all the family. Fronting the sofa is a state of the art flat screen TV that is flush to the wall it is hung from. Flanking the screen are the B&W surround speakers. Moving through the room towards the centre of this space is the beautifully vast marble topped breakfast bar which is home to the kitchen sink and also houses the wine fridge that fits snugly underneath. Cooks are very well catered for with brand new Miele induction hob and 2 Miele ovens (one also a microwave). As you enter the final phase of this room you will find the dining area which looks out across the garden to the rear. Look up and you will see the glass ceiling and mezzanine balcony of the sitting room above. From this room there is direct access onto the garden to the rear. Tucked away in the corner is the utility room with washer and dryer and adjacent is the WC. On the first floor is where you will find the master bedroom and master bathroom. The master bedroom is reassuringly spacious with an inviting Vi-spring super-king sized bed of the highest quality. A Sonos system controls the integrated ceiling speakers in this room and the master bathroom. The master bathroom is a triumph of design, style and practicality in one tranquil space. Features are the 'his and hers sinks', freestanding bath tub, large walk in shower and mood lighting. The top floor houses 2 further bedrooms and an en suite bathroom. The second bedroom has a king size bed and en-suite shower room. The third bedroom has double bunk beds (American size), a great space for younger members of the group to unwind in at the end of the day.

No Pets, Parties or Smoking.

Solid choice for visting London

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed comfortably here. It is not perfect, but a very solid choice and a home in which we would stay again.

We stayed for 9 days in late July 2017.

Our list of 'cons' is pretty light: four narrow floors gave us room to spread out, but we all tired of the stairs; the master shower didn't drain well, and because it was a stylish 'no barrier' shower it meant we had to erect towel barricades to keep the room from flooding; a 15 minute walk to the Piccadilly Line, and 12 minutes walk to Victoria Line is about as far as we would want to walk with small kids; and the under-floor heating meant the house was too-warm on days when the outside temperature was comfortable (we could not find a way to adjust the heat).

The positives are many: near two underground lines and an overground line; *extremely* quiet; lovely back deck with table; full kitchen stocked with what we needed; one underground stop to King's Cross; near the Caledonian Rd station is both a Sainsbury Local and Tesco Metro; the wi-fi was strong and reliable; each bedroom has an oscillating fan; the bedrooms are generous in size; and on the block is both a lovely pub and a good, family run Italian restaurant.

As mentioned above, we would happily stay here again.

Moreover, the representative from the property management company was on time (early, even), courteous, and communication about the property was good. I give them high marks.

Place is OK

  • 3 of 5

Location is ok and the upkeep of the property could be improved. We stayed at 2 other locations while in London and it was the least desirable. Pictures on the site tell a different reality..,

A positive experience

All positive except we had a problem with the hot water and water power for 3 days. This was a big problem, but the only problem.

Elegant Islington is a desirable residential area north of central London that stretches from Islington High Street to Highbury Fields and includes the busy Upper Street district. There are a plethora of charming homes which cater perfectly for both small and large families. Dating back to the Domesday Book and predominantly built during the 19th century, it boasts some of the most elegant Georgian terraced streets and Victorian squares in the city including Lonsdale Square which has a beautiful garden at its centre.

With a mixture of cultural shops, pubs and cafés, Islington is a favourite drinking and dining spot for many. The high street, historically located along Camden Passage 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. You'll find intriguing vintage shops nestled between the fashionable shops in this area, and do look out for the Banksy masterpieces as you stroll the streets. Islington is definitely an area for the foodie too, with cuisine from all around the world on offer.

There's a fantastic arts scene in Islington - also known as the capital's alternative theatre land - and it caters for both movie buffs and theatre lovers alike. There is an independent cinema and two reputable theatres in the area, notably Sadler's Well's which showcases world-class dance, the Almeida Theatre or the Little Angel Theatre for performances to entertain the children.

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.
