Full description

Beautiful garden apartment in Highbury close to the border with Canonbury.


Highbury is a residential suburb in the London Borough of Islington. The area has traditionally had a very friendly, mixed demographic, from music producers to bankers, comedians and journalists to lawyers and politicians.

Within a short walk of Highbury & Islington Station is the open space of Highbury Fields surrounded by impressive Georgian and Victorian architecture, popular in the summer months with outdoor public tennis and netball courts and a small indoor fitness centre and pool. Highbury Barn is a small parade of independent award winning local shops and amenities, including Godfrey's butchers and Highbury Vintners.

Highbury Stadium, the former home of Arsenal Football Club, is now a development of luxury flats on the exact site of the old stands, with a large formal garden where the football pitch once sat.

Arsenal have moved to a 60,000 capacity purpose built stadium in the east of the area, and the football club continues to be at the heart of the Highbury community. Housing stock in the area is largely Victorian and Georgian, ranging from the grand villas of Highbury Hill and the huge flat fronted town houses of Highbury Place to the pretty, tree lines streets east of Petherton Road and north of Highbury Fields.


This beautiful apartment is set on a quiet leafy road, within approximately 500m from Highbury & Islington Station and the north end of Upper Street. The apartment consists of a lovely living room and a separate contemporary kitchen. The two double bedrooms are well proportioned and one has patio doors with access to a pretty patio garden. There is also a bathroom with overhead shower and a separate cloakroom.

Harecourt Road is a quiet, U-shaped road set off St Paul's Road in Highbury. The road is devoid of through traffic, and housing stock is exclusively Victorian. The subject house is set on the attractive northern portion of the street, on a terrace of Victorian cottages.

Transport links are via the regular bus services along Highbury Park, towards Upper Street and on to St Pauls or Holborn or along Green Lanes which has two bus routes towards London Bridge or Holborn.

Upper Street is on four bus routes towards Angel, Kings Cross, Old Street, the City, London Bridge, Holborn and the West End.

Southgate Road is on four bus routes towards Old Street, The City and London Bridge and Waterloo. Essex Road benefits from five bus routes towards Angel, Holborn, Kings Cross and the West End.

Caledonian Road is on two great bus routes. One going towards Kings Cross, Euston and then onto Charing Cross. And the other going towards Chancery Lane, St Pauls and then onto London Bridge.

Hemingford Road is on one major bus route towards Barbican and Moorgate.

Balls Pond Road is on four bus routes towards Highbury Corner, London Bridge, the West End and Canary Wharf and Southgate Road has a further four bus routes towards Old Street, The City and Waterloo.
