Islington apartment description

Mercury price

This one bedroom, one bathroom apartment is a slice of contemporary style, housed within a converted precious metals bank. The old boardroom is your sitting room. Marvel at the sophisticated interior and the profusion of beautiful art work on the walls, or head outside where the incomparable Clerkenwell awaits. Find bohemian city cafes where freelancers tinker away on their Macbooks, high end furniture boutiques, and award winning restaurants. Dine nose-to-tail at St John, or explore the picturesque St James Green, where you can pick up a bottle, to be enjoyed at home, as you recline under the sitting rooms stucco’d ceiling.

Jewel in the crown

Your host is a former Royal Ballet dancer. When she’s not indulging her passion for the fine food and high culture of bustling east London, she’s jetting off to Florence where she attends a painting academy.

Platinum chard

You are on the money in this treasure-filled home. Flop on the fuchsia sofa and admire the original wood panelling which adorns the curved walls. Across the parquet flooring, find the bespoke and hi-spec kitchen hugging the sweeping structure. Offering up cookery books and spices a-plenty with which to whip up a storm there’s no reason not to.

Having indulged your appetite, behind a gorgeous original doorway lies the master bedroom, where a huge painting of Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring sits before the white linen double bed. Curl up with a travel book, bathed in the atmospheric light from the window, or watch a film from the comfort of a duck egg blue armchair. An upscale ensuite compliments the bedroom, filled with our White Company goodies.

Silver street

Clerkenwell is a hive of energy, and one of London’s most sought after areas. It may be close to the alt-chic of Shoreditch and the vintage mecca of Brick Lane, but it channels its own brand of grown-up cool. So sample the elegant coffee houses, the inimitable Barbican, or the host of interiors boutiques. What’s more, it’s super close to central London. You can walk there in 20 minutes, jump on a bus in ten, or the tube from Farringdon to Baker Street is ten minutes.

                                  Why Islington:
                                  Silver street Clerkenwell is a hive of energy, and one of London’s most sought after areas. It may be close to the alt-chic of Shoreditch and the vintage mecca of Brick Lane, but it channels its own brand of grown-up cool.

                                  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.
