About our home

Our newly refurbished home is a great launch-pad for all that London has to offer.

One way, super close to trendy Dalston, Hackney and Shoreditch and the other is classier Islington (many Stars and Government MP's live here). The City of London and the famous West End are a short tube, bus, train or cab ride away.

On the doorstep is historical Newington Green with London's oldest surviving brick terraced houses, the Unitarian Church and The New River Walk, London's former drinking water supplier are all nearby, to name but a few.

The area has known some famous inhabitants, it was the home of the 17th Century Nonconformists and Dissenting Academies and the famous feminist Mary Wollstonecraft. Not to mention Founding Fathers of the United States no less! Latterday famous locals are endless...including Rock Stars and Film stars. The list goes on.

For sports fans, the Emirates Stadium, the famous home of Arsenal Football Club, is less than a mile away as the crow flies!

The property itself is laid out downstairs as one one big 'family' room which has a brand new fully equipped kitchen at one end with two bright skylights above (kitchen complete with spice draw and an excellent set of knives!).

There is a family dining area and large sofa and chairs etc. There are two doors which open onto a decent sized secluded garden.

There are three bedrooms upstairs, one master bedroom, one kids room with a bunk bed, and a double spare room / office. There is one family bathroom upstairs (with bath and shower) and a downstairs WC with washing machine.

There is off street parking outside for three cars, and also a possibility of using our Landrover Discovery 4 (if we're not driving to our swap!).

Sorry about some of the photos, they seem to have been strangely cropped.
