Description
Very bright two bedroom apartment with high ceilings situated on the first floor of a Victorian conversion located in the heart of the Canonbury conservation area and just a short walk from Upper Street.

Location
Canonbury is a small residential district within the London Borough of Islington. One of the most popular areas in Islington, it has a rich literary, artistic and theatrical history, having boasted George Orwell, Evelyn Waugh, Samuel Phelps and more recently Cate Blanchett and Emma Watson as residents.

Pretty tree lined streets feature a mix of Victorian, Georgian and Neo Georgian architecture. Most properties in the area benefit from communal or private gardens, and the open space of Highbury Fields is only a short walk away. The New River is at the centre of the area. Built as an aqueduct in the 18th Century to supply fresh water from Hertfordshire to Central London, it is now a beautiful stretch of leafy urban serenity, and the streets surrounding the river, including Willow Bridge Road, “The Alwynes” (Alwyne Road and Alwyne Place) and Canonbury Park South, are virtually devoid of through traffic and are among the most desirable addresses in North London.

Canonbury has some independent shops along Canonbury Lane and several popular gastro pubs pubs and restaurants, but with Upper Street close at hand, most shopping, drinking and dining experiences are to be had there. The world famous Almeida Theatre is close by, as are several other smaller but no less creative theatrical venues.

Directions
Willow Bridge Road is one of Canonbury's most prestigious streets, and comprises a mixture of substantial Georgian and Victorian houses. The road is tree lined and is unusually quiet. Highbury & Islington station (Victoria Line and London Overground) is within 500m, and Upper Street is less than 300m.

Additional Info
Islington is popular with young professionals and families alike. A wide assortment of accommodation, streets and green areas make for a stimulating environment while excellent eateries, art and culture add to the variety and vitality of the area.

Much of the area including Barnsbury, Canonbury and De Beauvoir Town was developed in the Georgian and Victorian eras and retains many of the original architectural features of those times. The grand residential homes, courtyards and squares across the district have established Islington as a premier address in London.

Islington benefits from some spectacular parks and city gardens. Highbury Fields, situated just to the east of Highbury Gardens, is the largest open space in the borough of Islington. Across its 29 acres there are recreational facilities including eight tennis courts, a café, swimming pool and a football court at the north end.

The park is surrounded by highly desirable residences.

Islington has some fantastic local theatres including the Almeida, a local award-winning 325 seat theatre, producing a diverse range of British and international drama with some of the world’s best artists, and has developed a worldwide profile. The King’s Head theatre, known for its music, has been a hotbed of new and exciting creative talent for more than 35 years. Not forgetting Sadler’s Wells, the UK’s leading dance house, uniquely dedicated to bringing the very best international and UK dance to London audiences.

All this culture and diversity attracts residents of a particularly discerning nature. Its close vicinity to the City, efficient transport links and the unique charm of Upper Street with its blend of cultural offerings and diverse shopping choices add further appeal.
