Islington apartment description

A journey in nick-nacks

With such large windows and all its woody features, this characterful apartment transports you to the deck of a boat idling down the canal. As you are becalmed by the waterside position, be taken on a journey by all the crafts and nick-nacks your hosts have collected from around the world. Pick up a book from the mezzanine bookshelf, or sink into a bath. An adventure from top deck to bottom, this is a treat of a house in Shoreditch, the playground for artistic minds with a sideways take on the world sailing by.

Globetrotters and potters

Your hosts are retired architects, and they can’t get enough travel. They like to explore and see the world and bring their findings home. Her pottery skills and Danish influence can be seen around the apartment.

A passport full of stamps

Full of arts and crafts and interesting objects your hosts have picked up on their travels, this apartment has the vibe of a life well lived. And you’ll live well too, soaking up the prime canal-side location through floor-to-ceiling windows and doors. You’ll be straight out onto the lovely balcony before you’ve even unpacked your bags. Out here, recline and watch the barges drifting by.

Inside, the apartment is playful, cool and colourful, with a Scandinavian look and feel. Wood and earthy tones are complemented by splashes of colour, such as the bright yellow watering can in the bathroom and the red rug in the kitchen. The bedroom is up on the mezzanine level, like a top deck, overlooking the main living space. Quirky features abound there are even two bathrooms to choose from.

Land of pop-ups

Walk north from the City of London, following the scent of creative start-ups, and it won’t take you long to reach Shoreditch, a land of pop-up cafes and galleries. Don’t miss Spitalfields market and trendy Shoreditch House with its rooftop bar. If you need to venture west, you can be at Oxford Circus in 15 minutes if you take the tube from Old Street.
