Found moments from Highbury Barn on a tranquil no-through road, this charming two-bedroom flat spans the top two floors of a classic Victorian building. Being on the upper levels, it is bright and airy inside, with light flooding in from both sides of the property.
Hamilton Park is an amazing location. Literally around the corner from Highbury Fields and only a short walk from Upper Street, yet this leafy street retains a genuine sense of peace and quiet. This lovely apartment is perfect for anyone looking for an urban pad within this much-coveted corner of the capital.
Brickworks Says - This is fantastic flat with bundles of potential. Due to the split level configuration, there is a great sense of space and fluidity throughout.
Psychologically, as well, heading upstairs to sleep just feels 'right' somehow. And, the expansive sash windows in the living room are especially worthy of mention, bathing this spacious room in natural light.
The Owners Say - Hamilton Park is in a beautiful area in the heart of Highbury. It has pretty much all you could wish for - a nearby park, a local high street, great transport links and a genuine sense of community.
Highbury Barn, as it is known to locals, just 30 seconds walk from the flat, has everything you need, from a deli, butcher and greengrocer, to cafes (both posh and greasy spoon), two hairdressers, a pharmacy and a hardware store. The area is always buzzy and full of people from all walks of life during the day but equally tranquil & relaxed in the evenings. It is particularly lively and full of energy on match days, as the Emirates Stadium is just a few minutes away. Whether you like football or not, there's always a positive vibe in the air.
We have the loveliest neighbours who have been living there for decades - we will be sad to say goodbye to them. We have loved every minute of living here, and we are going to miss the flat hugely.
Points To Consider - There are 92 years remaining on the lease. The service charge totalled £462.10 for 2016/2017. Ground rent £10.
The flat falls within Islington Council Tax Band D (£1,296.15 in 2016)
While the walls and woodwork have been recently decorated, in our opinion, there are a few cosmetic touches that could still be made. For example, new flooring and some TLC in the kitchen would make an already lovely apartment a completely fabulous one.
There are two bus routes into the centre of town (brilliant if you've had a late night) plus it is only a 10-minute walk to Arsenal (Piccadilly Line Zone 2) and fewer than 15 minutes to Highbury & Islington Tube and Overground (Victoria Line Zone 2). Drayton Park is also around the corner which runs to Kings Cross.
