Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Occupying a corner position on a quiet residential street in central Barnsbury, this four-bedroom townhouse has been dramatically remodelled by the current owner in partnership with Paul Archer Design, to create a wonderfully sophisticated family living space with landscaped private garden.


Accommodation is principally divided over three floors interjected with cleverly conceived half levels. Entrance is at street level to a wide hall. To the right is a double reception room, with a large sash window to the front and a second to the rear looking out to the garden. The room is a beautiful amalgamation of restored detailing and modern materials, with delicate original cornicing, Pierre Frey fabric-covered walls, Element 7 Nero oak floors and a gas fireplace. There is underfloor heating throughout the house.


A short flight of stairs, sided with Lyncrusta wall panels, leads down to the first half level where there’s a Bisazza-tiled shower room with concealed utility space at the rear.


On the lower level, a quiet bedroom with Cole & Son 'Fontainebleau' wallpaper and bespoke walk-in wardrobes, is positioned at the front of the house. A door gives access to a marble-floored out room and vaults beneath the street. The second reception room, which has Timorous Beasties wallpaper, looks over gallery rails to the kitchen / dining room, a half level below.


The kitchen and dining area, part of the rear extension by Paul Archer Design, face the rear garden with access to a patio through Cantifix pocket sliding doors that are equipped with an external mesh screening for security. A large island with immaculate stainless-steel worktop houses the hob and Wolf dual-fuel oven. An elegant Calcutta marble countertop opposite has a double sink, and above, is a long skylight that draws in natural light. The dining area sits beneath a glass roof and a wall of Emery and Cie Zelliges tiles. A custom-poured Puur resin floor runs throughout.


The master bedroom is positioned on the top floor and is wonderfully decorated with House of Hackney wallpaper and matching bespoke curtains. Behind the bedhead there’s a large walk-in wardrobe fitted with vintage haberdashery units. The floor is a reclaimed parquet. A further bedroom has a double-height volume, having punched through into the loft space to create a high sleeping platform with crawl-storage space accessed via an alternate-tread staircase. The large family bathroom has a walk-in shower, striking Emery and Cie tiles, and a LeFroy Brooks cabinet and fittings.


There is a large purpose-built secure store room that runs along the side of the house, with access from the street. There is also side access to the rear garden.


The house is excellently located in the heart of Barnsbury, equidistant from Angel and the impressive new Granary Square development at Kings Cross. The Underground is available at Highbury & Islington (Victoria Line) or Angel (Northern Line), and Overground services can be found at Caledonian Road & Barnsbury, providing quick access to the City and the West End. The Eurostar at King's Cross is also easily accessible.
