Islington apartment description

Sock and buskin

It would take a very great tragedian to act disappointed in St Peter’s Street III. Because within a whisper of Sadler’s Wells and the Almeida, your backdrop could scarcely be bettered. And if the proportions are petite, the production is emphatically spot-on. Applaud its well-stocked corner shelves, its ecclesiastical chairs, its arched window with duck-egg blue shutters. But be sure not to ring down the curtain before you’ve wandered the scenic canal towpath, or taken off for the show-stopping West End.

One-hander

A theatre director, your host is handily close to the capital’s playhouses – to say nothing of Upper Street’s impressive restaurants. And his aren’t the first dramatic feet to tread the boards of St Peter’s Street III, either. In an earlier run, actors and directors alike have called this home.

Sotto voce

From the entrance to the exeunt, this is a home that vies for your approval and earns it. Lay your scene on the sitting room’s languid couch, or select a heady tome and wile away an afternoon in the communal garden.


While inside the striking blue rug is an assured coup de théâtre, the artwork colourful and quirky by turns. And when the day takes its bow and the light performs a shadow-play, no cue is needed to make for the quiet and welcoming bedroom with its muted palette and rich wooden chest of drawers.

                                          Introducing Islington

                                          Islington is famous, infamous even, as the stomping ground of the sharper-elbowed sort of North London intelligentsia (the older, more decorous variety prefer Hampstead). Tony Blair famously ushered in his premiership from his home on Richmond Crescent in leafy Barnsbury while his famous deal with Gordon Brown took place at the nearby and now defunct Granita.

                                          Islington is literary London’s favoured address but also home to bankers who can get their expensive German saloons (or, increasingly, expensive Italian bicycles) into the City in minutes.

                                          The area is essentially comprised of the long boutique and café-crammed stretch of Upper Street, which ends at Highbury Corner at the north end and the Angel at the South, flanked by the leafy Georgian squares and streets of Barnsbury and Canonbury. Essex Road is Upper Street’s shabbier tributary but that has become slightly smarter in recent years.

                                          Ten years ago Upper Street itself was in danger of becoming an undistinguished strip of chain pubs and restaurants – a bland every High Street – but that trend has been reversed and though there are more Starbucks on the street than seems feasible, there are also plenty of more interesting hang-outs. In retail terms there are a number of good independent boutiques, particularly at the north end of Upper Street. Camden Passage, once a run of antique dealers, now has cafes and vintage clothes stores to the mix.

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 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.
