Our home was renovated in 2012 by Charles Tashima Architecture. We can sleep 10 people comfortably. The kitchen opens up to a 35 metre garden, with a sunken trampoline hidden in a silver woodland. We have two wood burning stoves for winter nights and a projector to watch movies.

The space
This is our family home. It was refurbished in 2012. It is spacious and has lots of entertainment space with a double reception room and pull-down projector screen. Four folding doors open up completely from the large kitchen to the 35 meter garden.

The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom. There are four more bedrooms including a loft-converted bedroom and one further bathroom. The house is 3100 Sq ft in total. There is a trampoline in the garden surrounded by 40 silver birch trees. Behind this is a large kids playhouse hidden in the trees.

Mercers Road is a desirable street which is well served by nearby amenities, within easy reach of the shops, bars and restaurants around Upper Street and Tufnell Park. Hampstead Heath is in walking distance.

Transport links include Upper Holloway Station (Overground) Tufnell Park Station (Northern Line) and Holloway Road Underground Station (Piccadilly Line).

Local authority: Islington Council

Guest access
Projector for films
The projection screen pulls down with a hook that we keep under the sofa by the wall. Pull all the way down and hold. To retract, tug quickly and release. It is delicate so an adult should do this.

Projector – when using the DVD player, be sure the amplifier is set to ‘AV’. The sound will then play through the speakers.

The Local Area

SHOPS
Holloway Road - turn right outside the house, walk to the end. Lots of small shops.

Fortess Road – turn left outside the house, walk all the way to the end, turn left again, then right on to Tufnell Park Road and walk up the hill to the junction. Along the way you will pass the Tufnell Park Tavern – a good local place for eating out (breakfast, lunch, dinner).

Upper Street in Islington is 1.5km south down the Holloway Road but it’s very nice. Many cafés, shops and restaurants.

For big weekly shopping we go to WAITROSE, 1km south down Holloway Road on the left. The car park is just past WAITROSE – turn left off the Holloway Road and follow the signs that take you around to the back of the store.
