Islington apartment description

Lost and found

A chandelier that came home from Rome in a suitcase, a kitchen block from a communist iron foundry, a Victorian fireplace… there’s so much to love about Wallace Road. This home is filled with antiques, but don’t think it’s stuck in the past – a flock of Phillipe Stark’s ghost chairs shimmer around the dining table, and the kitchen’s so new it gleams. You’re next to the tufted lawns of Highbury Fields, if you want a proper coffee, there’s no better latte than in the cafés of Newington Green. Eat out in one of Upper Street’s many restaurants, or zip to Oxford Street on the tube… this is what city living is all about.

Fond inheritance

Your hostess is Italian, and she spent three years searching for her London home. She renovated it with the help of her father, and is a testament to their bond. She’s a professor of economics, and when she’s not in the UK, she’s back in her homeland, enjoying good food and sunshine.

My precious

Everything here is exquisite. A gilded mirror loops and whorls, the cushions are lush with devore, and even the floorboards invite your fingertips’ caress. The sitting room is open plan, with a vintage dining table, colourful couches, and shelf upon shelf of intriguing knick-knacks. Head around the corner, past the golden chest of drawers and into the kitchen, those new units encircling that stunning old block, its gnarled wood shown to perfection by the pendant light above.

The grey bathroom’s smart and contemporary, and filled with our White Company toiletries and fluffy towels. And the bedroom’s simply delightful, a soft double bed, a lavish velvet headboard and two original sash windows looking out into the treetops.

Gather ye rosebuds

Walk to Highbury Fields for tennis courts, ice cream cones and some of Islington’s best architecture, then, it’s on to Upper Street, where the pavements are crammed with café tables, and the boutiques pedal cashmere, organic chocolate and handmade furniture. Or, if you want to hang with the hipsters, make for Newington Green, one of the city’s trendiest neighbourhoods. Central London is just 15 minutes on the tube.

Manager info

About: One fine stay gives you the chance to stay in someone's place while they're out of town. You get to live their life for a few days and nights. Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room. And there's service to match. Nobody wants to be a tourist, so our homes come with recommendations from the people who live in them. For everything else, we're here 24/7.

Why Islington:

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room, with online payment and confirmation. You get the same attention to detail and personal service too. Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There’s a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities. Once we’ve helped you settle in, we’re just a call away, 24/7. If it’s something we can’t solve over the phone, we’ll pop over to lend a hand. And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them – places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
