Designer Townhouse in Fashionable Islington
We are so excited to share our newly renovated home with you. Our place is a 3 bedroom 3.5 bathroom 4 story house in the area of Islington. We are really conveniently located next to two tube stations (Angel - 9 mins walk) and Highbury & Islington (13m mins walk) which is perfect for transport links. We also enlisted the help of a local interior design team and have completely done up our place - expect lots of amazing little quirky and colorful design pieces.
The house has various living spaces which are filled with amazing design features and colors. Sit back, relax and enjoy! Maybe have an evening off from sightseeing and turn on the flat screen TV - there are plenty of channels for you to enjoy. Or, sit outside and enjoy an alfresco dinner.
If cooking a gourmet meal at home is more your thing, then rest assured the kitchen will have everything you need in it such as all the basic condiments, and as an added extra we make sure that there is also always plenty of tea, coffee and sugar so that you can make yourself a traditional British cuppa in the morning! There are also all the mod-cons such as toaster, kettle and dishwasher that you might expect. We really want to ensure that you have a comfortable stay here in London!
There are three bedrooms in the house. The study downstairs also has a small double sofa bed which will sleep a 7th adult or two small children. All the bedrooms are spacious with colorful homely touches. There is also plenty of storage space for guests to store all their belongings.
Finally, the property also benefits from 3.5 bathrooms. Just to explain that a little more, there is a shower downstairs, a separate toilet downstairs, an en suite in the bedroom on the 1st floor (with stand alone bath, shower and toilet ... all inside wardrobe) and finally another en suite upstairs for bedrooms 2 and 3 (the bathroom has doors through from both rooms). This ensuite has a shower and toilet.
The house comes with a washing machine, a tumble dryer, iron and ironing board. A baby cot and high chair can be provided upon request.
Our home is located in Central London and is a 50-min journey from London Heathrow Airport.
The house is 2 miles east of Buckingham Palace and 2 miles north of Tower Bridge.
Islington is a beautiful area which has a peaceful feel, and is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in London. Islington itself has lots of its own bars and restaurants - our favourite is the Breakfast Club, a strong favourite of the locals!
However, Islington is also lucky enough to have the area of Angel right on its doorstep. Make sure that you make the ten minute walk to Angel and take a walk along the main street - called Upper Street. Here, you will find a HUGE variety of different cafes, bars, restaurants, salons and shops. If pubs are your thing, or if you're looking for a quintessential English experience, then try out The Glassworks or The Angel. These bars are always so popular in the evenings and at the weekends - and for a good reason! These are some of the most reasonably priced pubs in London.
If you feel like escaping the hustle and bustle of the city and are searching for some green space to relax in, then St Mary's Park is about 200 metres from the apartment. Or, walk a little further and visit Islington Green which is about 500 metres from the apartment.
Angel tube station is a 9 minute walk in one direction and Highbury and Islington tube station is a 13 minute walk away. You couldn't be better placed!
There are also plenty of buses in the area, which are a great way of travelling if you like to have a peek at your surroundings as you travel.
A great local tip is to download the Citymapper app. This free app will plan your journey for you efficiently and quickly. It gives you a variety of different transport options such as bike, rail, tube and Uber taxi. It will also take you step by step through your journey as you travel and notify you when you are nearing your destination.

Thanksgiving week in London
Lovely townhouse, excellent renovation, 4 floors give great privacy, ubers make access easy to heart of london, gorgeous and private patio off the lower floor”
Beautiful house in an idyllic London square. It was perfect for our family Christmas and the kitchen was surprisingly well kitted-out. Location is ideal as it is only 4 tube stops from Oxford Street and the Angel/Islington area is full of bars, restaurants and boutiques so if you didn't want to go into the city you had plenty around you. Would highly recommend. ”
Modern home in trendy neighborhood
I found immediate comfort in this cozy and modern four-story townhouse. The décor is dramatic. Beautiful dark decor is mixed with mood lighting throughout the home. I loved relaxing and sipping on wine in the secluded courtyard at the back of the home. The famous city attractions of London are just minutes away from your doorstep. While there is easy access to the rest of the city, I was impressed by how vibrant Islington is. On Upper Street and surrounding streets, you’ll find pubs, shops, restaurants and cafes. This home was the perfect place to stay while in London, especially if you love to stay busy on your trips like I do.”
Perfect London Stay!
The Designer Townhouse is ideal for a week exploring all that London has to offer. Located in a trendy part of town, an easy Uber or underground ride into the heart of the city. There are great restaurants, little shops, everything you may need all within walking distance. The apartment is immaculately decorated inside and out. The furnishings are very comfortable, and the master bath is amazing! Whether relaxing with a glass of wine or waking up to a perfect cup of coffee, the back patio is an ideal spot to enjoy a quiet moment. Adam was a great host...thank you!!”
