Islington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home with both creative and cosy décor

Shaping the past

Built some two centuries back on land owned by the Marquess of Northampton, Canonbury Square is hefty with history. Squint and you might see gentlemen in periwigs passing beneath the gas lamps or George Orwell ducking into no. 27. But it’s the present day we’re interested in, and we think you’ll be interested too. Chestnuts, roses and grape vines grow in the garden square, but the real attraction nowadays sits over the road. Each room of this sunny home flaunts its own style, from a vibrant sitting room to the ghost chairs of a space-age kitchen. Yes, with buzzy Upper Street nearby, you’ll feel bang up to date.

Intelligence squared

Your hosts are a young, dynamic pair whose work jets them across the world. Their home is in London, but their heart lies with family in New York – who they often visit on long weekends.

The right angles

Before you step inside, do pause to breathe in the history or at least the sweet-scented aroma of those flowers. Indoors, the sitting room extends a modern, colourful and cosy welcome. Sprawl onto the squishy red sofa and run an appreciative eye over the potted plants, weathered furniture and gently-tinted walls. A wooden dining table seats four, while windows gaze straight onto the square. Glide into the kitchen next, resplendent in white. Philippe Starck ghost chairs add a futuristic touch to proceedings, but you can keep your gastronomy simple.

The master bedroom is traditional in style, with period features and a king bed perched before cream-clad and corniced walls. Asian influences enliven the elegant double, as light gleams off a framed Rauschenberg print. The bathroom is tiled in sky blue and hung with the fluffiest of white towels.

Round the corner

Canonbury Square is about culture as much as history – and, just opposite, you’ll find the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art. Beyond its handsome Georgian façade, all is futurism, cubism and abstract portraiture. You’re within gazing distance of Canonbury Tower too, a sixteenth century relic of Islington’s days as a rural retreat. Upper Street’s many bars and restaurants are a stroll away, and you’re temptingly close to town. The tube from Highbury & Islington to Oxford Circus takes just eight minutes.

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.
