Islington House Rental Photos and Description
3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with the green acres of Highbury Fields nearby
Nature smiles on Elfort Road. Tucked by the Emirates Stadium’s emerald turf, this home has a green-fingered touch all its own. The sofas are soft, the skylights azure-bright, and a grassy breeze wafts through the kitchen’s sliding glass doors. In fact, with the scattered antiques and flourishes of colour, one might even be tempted to stay inside. But when the hour arrives for tea, you might wish take it in the gorgeous, lengthy garden. Before you stroll to Gillespie Park, Highbury Fields, or the organic grocers of Highbury Barn.
A young family with two children, your hosts have lived at Elfort Road for one year. This summer, they are holidaying where the outdoors is greatest – Cornwall.
The garden catches the morning sun – so too can you on its wooden dining table or well-tended turf. Meander into the kitchen for a leisurely lunch, or simply for a refreshing glance at the pistachio splashback and bright white walls. Antiques and a bevy of toys await in the chic sitting room, all framed by corniced ceilings and eye-catching lighting.
Make yourself cosiest in the vintage mint-green armchair, or breeze up to the bedrooms. Whether yours is the airy master, the lofty double, or the light-hearted single, the low rustling of the trees is sure to lull everyone to slumber.

Nobody wants to be a tourist, so our homes come with recommendations from the people who live in them. For everything else, we're here 24/7.
Why Owner / Property Manager chose Islington
Starting off as a refuge from the plague and the noisome airs for City folk, Highbury was a rural retreat until the Victorians engulfed it in their building-boom megapolis.
Past the busy Highbury Corner, where Hugh Grant turned the air blue in the opening sequence of Four Weddings and a Funeral, lies the inviting grass expanse of Highbury Fields, flanked by prime property. At the top nestles Highbury Barn, a genteel parade of shops where locals stop off in the corner pub, carrying bags of Stinking Bishop from one of London’s prime cheese retailers, the pungent La Fromagerie, or heading to always-packed Italian restaurant Trullo on St Paul’s Road.
There are plenty of choice cultural experiences, like the acoustic Union Chapel on Upper Street (Kris Kristofferson, Martha Wainwright and Lloyd Cole play this season), the Estorick Collection on Canonbury Square harbouring Italian art and an authentic garden café, and the left-field independent theatre performances at the King’s Head, Hen & Chickens and Old Red Lion, reinforcing this area’s tradition of fun-searching free thinking.
What makes this house unique
Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room, with online payment and confirmation. You get the same attention to detail and personal service too.
Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There’s a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities.
Once we’ve helped you settle in, we’re just a call away, 24/7. If it’s something we can’t solve over the phone, we’ll pop over to lend a hand.
And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them – places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
