On the way to the master bedroom is the 2nd bedroom / private TV room (the couch pulls out to a Full/Queen bed with a luxury mattress topper to ensure outstanding comfort. The bathroom has a tub with shower as well as a separate shower. The owners closet along the hallway is locked during stays.

You can't beat this location. Situated halfway between Angel and HIghbury & Islington tube stations on fashionable Upper Street, you're surrounded by outstanding restaurants (Ottolenghi being our favourite), a wide range of pubs/bars/lounges, miles of boutique shopping, and a smattering of cultural institutions (the award winning Almeida theatre is across the street from the flat). Behind the flat, and just a 50m walk from the front door is St. Mary's Gardens, a tranquil garden to sit and watch time go by.
Angel (Northern Line) and Highbury & Islington (Victoria, Overground) are just a few minutes walk away, giving you fast access to all of London. If you're exploring, also check out the Regents Canal (6 min walk east) towards Victoria Park, Barnsbury (5 minutes west), or tranquil Canonbury (5 mins northwest).
Other things to note
On weekends, Upper Street can be noisy and voices are audible in the front room until about midnight. The rest of the flat, including both bedrooms, is exceptionally quiet even at peak times. The master bedroom has a skylight and double doors, making the room exceptionally bright (read: the light will wake you up in the morning).
No smoking (except on the terrace). No pets. Quiet after 11pm.
