Islington townhome description

This garden maisonette is located in a peaceful Georgian enclave in the heart of central London. It is a stylish, airy and modern space, designed by award-winning architects. It is also extremely comfortable.

I live here half of the year (I'm a filmmaker and am often away on long shoots) so this is very much a loved home full of character and interesting artefacts from around the globe.

The maisonette opens out onto a beautiful large garden with outdoor lighting which can be enjoyed for much of the year. It has a brand new Weber gas BBQ which guests are welcome to use.

The ground floor comprises a big sunny open plan living room, dining area and kitchen with a stunning glass conservatory and limestone floor which has underfloor heating throughout - so your bare feet will always stay toasty warm even in the depths of winter! Looking out into the garden it's very hard to believe that one is in the heart of central London!

I am a real 'foody' and the kitchen is very well stocked with gadgets galore for those of you who like to cook. The fridge has an automatic ice dispenser and freshly filtered chilled water on tap.

The first floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The master bedroom overlooks the tranquility of the garden which backs onto a private cobbled mews. From the bed all one can see is sky and trees. It has beautiful handmade curtains, designer lighting controlled on a dimmer switch and original wooden flooring.

The bathroom is a 'wet room' with a huge rain shower, oversized sink, heated slate floor and heated towel rail.

The front bedroom is extremely quiet and also has a big window and wooden flooring. It has a very comfortable bed which can be used as a single or converted into a double.

The apartment also has wifi internet access and the rent includes up to 60 minutes free phone calls per week to landlines in the States and Europe. There are lots of maps and guidebooks for you to use during your stay.

The maisonette is in a Grade II listed townhouse set in a leafy, safe conservation area of Georgian London. Whilst the area is very quiet, the vibrant neighbourhoods of Islington, Bloomsbury and Clerkenwell are just five minutes away, offering theatres, cinemas, museums, a fantastic range of shops, bars and restaurants. With King's Cross and the Angel tube stations less than ten minutes walk away this is the ideal hub for almost anywhere in London. There is a historical walk from my doorstep through Clerkenwell past St Pauls Cathedral to the River Thames and Tate Modern. It is also a few minutes walk away from one of London's most authentic 'cockney' markets - where you can still buy a lobster for £5 at weekends!

I am happy to welcome 1-4 people.

Please note the maisonette is not suitable for toddlers as the staircase is open-plan and there are no child gates fitted.
