Key Features
Description
A truly spectacular and unique early-Victorian end of terrace home that has been exceptionally restored in one of Islington's prime Conservation Areas.

The accommodation is spread over three floors with a host of period features on offer throughout. The main entrance features beautiful geometric tiling, refurbished cornicing and an original Victorian staircase.


Living Room;

The living room has a wonderful mix of the old and new. This room benefits from some of the classic period features such as the high ceilings and Victorian sash windows. As the property is a corner unit, there is an abundance of natural light provided by the dual-aspect over Arlington Avenue, and the flooring has been completely re-done throughout in Oak Parquet. Chesney marble mantle places with ceramic log inserts have also been installed for a real fire effect and the cornicing and ceiling roses have been restored throughout.

The L-shaped room can also provide additional space for dining. This section of the room is bathed in natural light provided by a floor to ceiling casement window, which looks out onto the garden. This window can be opened to let some fresh air into the home but also gives a pleasant view over the garden space to the rear.

Main Bathroom;

The bathroom features a fantastic three-piece Savoy bathroom suite, which also benefits from a large double width shower.

Kitchen;

The kitchen is located on the lower ground level and benefits from an additional reception room/study space. The bespoke cabinetry in the kitchen has been hand crafted in Suffolk. Similar to the living room, the L-shaped layout provides additional space for either separate dining off the main kitchen area. The kitchen also benefits from underfloor heating beneath the stone paving.

Master Bedroom & Ensuite;

The master suite is located across the entire top floor with an adjoining en-suite bathroom. Hidden wardrobes and side table storage built into the chimney recesses have been installed to maximise space. The main bedroom also benefits from double glazing sash windows and oak parquet flooring.

Adjoining the master bedroom is a beautiful four-piece Lefroy Brooks bathroom suite consisting of a shower, freestanding bath, WC and wash hand basin.

Special Features;

The intelligent LIGHTWAVE lighting system used throughout the property allows for four mood settings in each room. The is controlled by a mood switch in each zone of the house and can also be remotely controlled by iPhone, via the web and can be set up to perform field functions.

There is also an intelligent heating system in pace that works on presence detection for each user’s phone. This adjusts the temperature according to where you are and learns your patterns of movement i.e. coming home from work etc.

There is also a presence video surveillance alarm system which will arm or disarm the house according to your movements for added security and it will also adjust the heating and the lighting throughout the house when you leave or arrive.

About Islington

Islington is home to a diverse range of residents and offers a vast choice of property types, from large Georgian squares to modern apartments. Historically, it was once thought of as a deprived area, with the London blitz destroying much of the region. However, post-war rebuilding and rapid gentrification has made it one of London’s most popular locations for well-heeled and cultured residents.
