Islington house description

Marriage made in heaven

Lofty ceilings, snowy cornicing and box hedges… Canning Road is a picture-book Victorian cottage. Yet this is also a home that wears its past lightly, and its owners have coaxed it into the twenty first century with the gentlest of touches. The couches are marshmallow-soft, the kitchen is brand new, and those sash windows are graced by trendy shutters. And the union of old and new continues beyond the front door. You’ve a fishmonger, a traditional butcher serving up organic, free-range meat, and one of the best cheese shops in town. In an uncertain world, this is a match that will last.

Young hearts run free

Your host is from down under, and works for a rail company, while your British hostess is in fashion. They’ve just been married, and they’re about to go honeymooning to South America.

Love me tender

All here at Canning Road is sweetness and light, from the gentle neutrals of the living space to the crisp kitchen. The sitting room is a sonnet to mocha and cream, comfortable modern furniture complimenting the cast-iron Victorian fireplace and flowers chasing one another up the original hand painted tiles. Eight can sit beneath the dining room’s chandelier, while the kitchen manages to be at once contemporary and just a little bit rustic, too. And if the weather allows, you’re strongly encouraged to dine in the garden, where you’ll find a top of the range BBQ just waiting to be lit.

Upstairs, there are two bedrooms. The first, a double in pure white, is as serene as the artwork that hangs above headboard. The master bedroom is that little bit larger, with a kingsized bed, a French dressing table and, on the chimneybreast, an ornate mirror. The ensuite’s brand new, and there’s a similarly sleek family bathroom, just across the hall.

Hand in hand

Highbury village is an enchanted spot, so stroll together across Clissold Park for a morning coffee on the steps of Clissold House, and make sure you wave at the stag. Then it’s on to nearby Islington to browse the boutiques, before a candlelit meal for two in one of Upper Street’s neighbourhood bistros. The tube from Arsenal to Covent Garden takes less than fifteen minutes.

About: onefinestay 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 House:
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.
