About this listing
Located in the heart of Barnsbury, Islington my beautiful Victorian 1st floor flat is the perfect home from home. The local area is thriving with wonderful restaurants, pubs, cafes, boutique shops and is very well connected. 5 min to walk to tube.
My charming 2 bed flat offers character, good quality and taste and at over 800sft, plenty of room for your stay in London.
Both bedrooms situated at the back of the flat are very quiet for a peaceful night's sleep. They have double beds with pocket sprung mattresses, 400 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and
Hungarian goose down duvets (can be changed for synthetic if you prefer). The larger room looks out upon the shared garden and is flooded with sunlight in the day. The second bedroom I call the cozy nest, this is my favourite of the two to sleep in. Both rooms have ample storage space, hair dryers, fresh towels etc.
The bespoke Italian kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, fridge, freezer (with ice) and a wonderful Bertazzoni range oven for those who love to cook! There is a kitchen table that seats 4 and I will leave you a hamper of food/breakfast, wine and essentials to help you settle in. Please feel free to use the fresh herbs available.
The separate living area at the front of the apartment has an additional large dining table that can seat 4-6 people. By the original bay windows there is a large comfy couch and coffee table with reading light and Cinni fan. There is a HD smart TV with many channels, internet and complimentary access to the wide range of on demand movies for a relaxing night in. Free fast wireless broadband, use of a mobile phone and Oyster cards are available for your stay.
The bathroom has a full size bath and stand up shower and use of beautiful Cowshed products that are 100% natural and made in England.
After confirmation I will send you a guide of the area with tips about our favourite places in Islington from the best fromagerie to the best pubs to go to for a proper English Sunday roast!
My apartment is on the first floor so only a short few steps up from street level. There is an intercom buzzer system from the flat. You can come and go at your leisure 24 hours a day.
You have full access to the apartment including free smart TV, NOW TV movies, high speed broadband internet, washing machine (with washing tablets), clothes airer, iron, ironing board, hoover. You will also have the use of Cowshed toiletries, pay as you go mobile phone, Oyster cards (a top up system which allows you to travel cheaply around the city via tube, train and bus).
For families with a baby I can offer a cot and highchair at no extra cost. There are also wonderful parks and playgrounds in the area including one directly across the road on Arundel Square.
