Islington apartment description

Wide open spaces

Sometimes, a whisper of sunshine is all it takes before we’re all swooping into the garden of an idle afternoon. For there’s nothing quite like the open sky, warming breeze or clinging odour of contented flowers, is there? Actually, here’s a home which whispers otherwise. Whether you’re drowsing in the garden among bumblebees or taking tea in the baronial sitting room, we think you’ll feel equally fresh indoors or out. High ceilings swap fleecy clouds for fancy cornicing, while gilded watercolours gleam in the dreamy daylight. Oakley Road may be whisper quiet, but you’ll find no shrinking violets here. The buzz of Islington happens to be just up the leafy road.

Onwards and upwards

Your hosts are a happy family with two young sons. She is a freelance cellist, while he is a set designer specialising in operas and lavish West End shows.

Rooftree

Beautifully open plan, the sitting and dining room feels as airy and spacious as the garden itself. Make time for tea on the sofa of the eloquent sitting room, or pluck a paperback and bask in the sunlight which pours through stately sash windows. Distinctly dapper, the glass-topped dining table stands beneath a gleaming chandelier, while a gilded mirror reflects every stray ray of light. Green leaves shimmer through the windows of the farmhouse-style kitchen, all natural woods and calming daylight.

You can accompany the birds on the piano in the double bedroom, or, better still, skip down the spiral staircase to the gentle garden and join them. When the shadows lengthen, whisk the little ones off to bed in the cute children’s bedroom, or breeze off to the endearingly sweet master, pigmented the softest pink. Then you’ve two bathrooms that should leave you feeling as fresh as a woodland glade.

Gardening leave

Don’t be fooled by the leafiness of your surrounds. Nearby Upper Street’s home to nightspots and natty boutiques by the score, and you’ve two cinemas and a theatre to get that cultural fix. Head for the boogie basements and artisan cafes of Dalston, or have a meander along the towpath to Victoria Park’s peaceful pastures. When it’s time for town, hop on the overground at Dalston Junction. You can be at Oxford Circus in just over twenty minutes.
