Islington Apartment Rental Photos and Description
You’ll love the view from this flat with roof terrace in fashionable Islington
Islington’s all about creativity. A fizzing hotspot that draws artists, media types, and more than a few politicians, the city’s young (and young-at-heart) flock to the seemingly infinite bars and restaurants. And just a few minutes from the thrum of Angel sits this bright apartment. Light spills in from the windows and skylights, and the walls are decorated with some stunning aboriginal art. But best of all, head upstairs and you’ll find this home’s pride and joy- a sunroom leading out onto one of the largest roof terraces we’ve ever seen.
Your hosts are from Down Under, and they moved to the UK three years ago. Your host is a retired diplomat with a penchant for making furniture, while your hostess divides her time between London and Bath, where she holds a senior position at the university.
Things are looking up
There’s something very relaxing about this home???s open plan living space. The glass topped dining table’s complimented by the hepplewhite-style chairs, while the aubergine sofas are just begging you to sink down and snuggle. The floors are original parquet with hand-woven rugs, and you’ll find everything you’ll ever need in the blond wood kitchen. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, and an ice-white ensuite- complete with a map of the British Isles to contemplate from the tub. The second double has its own bathroom, and, nestling beneath the window, a polished wood side table.
But don’t turn in just yet. Instead, take the stairs up to the second floor and toast the dusk up on the roof. And first thing in the morning, there’s no better spot to sip your coffee than the pretty sunroom – where there are comfy chairs and even a sofa bed, for those who like to sleep beneath the stars.
Get down on it
You’re just across the road from Exmouth Market, where you can eat out at Moro, one of the UK’s finest tapas restaurants, or stay up late playing foosball in Café Kick. Enjoy an evening of modern dance at Sadler’s Wells, and for shops and coffee bars, it’s hard to beat Upper Street. A few stops on the bus and you’ll be right into the heart of the West End, or the tube from Angel to Leicester Square takes less than fifteen minutes.
