This is a stylish 5 bedroom home in the vibrant area of Islington, North London.

The living room consists of 2 rooms, one with a sofa and 2 very
comfortable armchairs and the other facing the garden with a rocking
chair and another armchair. There are wooden floors throughout this
space and the window on the street side has white shutters on the
windows. Both rooms have stylish central lights and numerous little
lights to create a warm atmosphere.

The kitchen has all white modern fitted cupboards and a corian
worktop. The breakfast bar has 2 stools and the table can fit up to 8
people. There is a microwave, normal electric oven and a gas cooker
with 6 rings. Outside the kitchen is the patio with another garden
table which can fit up to 8 people.

The first floor consists of the master bedroom with a double bed
(160cm), another bedroom with a single bed, a toilet room and the
bathroom. The bathroom has a deep bath with a shower screen and a

The 2nd floor consists of a single bed room, a double bedroom (140cm
bed). Both these rooms have a view onto the garden. The 3rd bedroom
has 2 single beds. In this room you will find the TV and DVD player.
There is also a desk with printer available.

Our house is situated 2 minutes from the lovely Highbury fields, so
the whole place feels very leafy. Highbury fields have a children
playground, a gym with a swimming pool. One factor that convinced to
buy the house is the fantastic French bakery at the end of the Road
(Peche Mignon). They serve the best baguette and croissant in London
and believe us, we have searched!
Ideally situated to explore London for a great city break, Islington
itself is a hip, sophisticated destination on the northern edge of
Central London. The renowned Almeida Theatre and Kings Head Theatre
Pub are in the neighbourhood as are all the main supermarkets, plus
endless boutiques, cafes, restaurants, very fine food and antique
shops. You're about a 15 minute walk to Upper Street which is home to
a couple of cinemas, many restaurants, cafes, and shops. We are also
very close to the Emirates Stadium for the Arsenal football fans!
For transport, we are just a 5 minutes' walk to 2 tube stations. One
is Highbury & Islington from where the Victoria line can take you to
the West End in less than 10 minutes but also the Overground line
which can take you to the Olympic stadium in 15 minutes. The other
tube station is Holloway Road. The Piccadilly line runs through there.
You can reach Heathrow airport in approximately 1 hour. It also takes
you to Covent Garden in under 15 minutes. At the nearby bus-stop,
you'll find the 43 bus which will take you to London bridge and the
famous Borough market (the best food market in England!)
We would hope that the house and garden would receive the care and
consideration given to a home rather than a rental unit.
