Islington apartment description

Bright and beautiful

Alwyne Place is the ideal place to sow some happy holiday memories. This colorful and much loved home provides something for every member of the family, listen to records in the sitting room, don fancy dress in one of the bright bedrooms or hunt for snails in the walled garden. Set among the coveted streets of Islington, you and your troupe will have easy access to all manner of fun, so enjoy.

Wise and wonderful

Your hosts have lived here for over 20 years and along with their five children are always on the go, be it tending their vineyard in Chablis, skiing in the Alps or going for long walks near their Oxfordshire home.

Ripe fruits in the garden

Your host would like to welcome you to a chilled glass of his very own Chablis. Why not head out to the garden and as the kids begin to explore their new digs, take a moment to salute your new surroundings. If you dig a little deeper you’ll soon find a joyful surprise in a second intimate garden. Packed with mysterious old trees and shady paths, it’s a great place for a game of hide and seek.

Most of the bright, playfully decorated bedrooms are on the lower ground floor, filling the rooms with a healthy verdant light. Upstairs, the kitchen really is the hub of this home, somewhere you can potter while keeping an eye on those playing outside, through the floor to ceiling windows framed by twinkling fairy lights. After a delicious dinner gathered around the dining table surrounded by intriguing Eastern statues, clamber up to the sitting room and turn down the lights to watch a favourite film on the projector.

All things made well

For those in the know, Islington is the ideal part of London for those with a family. Close enough that you can walk into Central London but with the verdant calm of the country, you can revel in the best of both worlds. The open space of Highbury Fields is nearby, after which you could go to The Snooty Fox in Canonbury for an innovative pub lunch, catch a show at the Islington Puppet Theatre or head into the thick of the city, just a ten minute journey by tube.
