Property description

Lost and found

When your hosts first took possession of Ardilaun Road, it was deeply neglected. But with hard work, dedication and love, they stripped away a hundred years of grime to reveal something very special indeed. Now, hand-painted tiles nestle within a Victorian fireplace, while the large rooms are given life and energy with a Scandinavian colour palette and mid-century Danish furniture. Step outside to explore the artisan grocers of Highbury Barn, to stroll in Highbury Fields, and to eat out in the restaurants that jostle for space on Upper Street, each more tempting than the last.

Voyage of discovery

A classic yacht builder by trade, your Dutch host used his skills to uncover and restore this home’s original floors. Indeed, the wardrobes, shelves and beds are all his, both in design and exquisite execution.

Forward thinking

Spacious, airy and filled with light, the sitting room features gentle textiles and intricate modern art, framed by stunning original cornicing. The back of the house flows through a wall of glass to the landscaped garden, pendant lighting giving a sense of drama to the sleek charcoal kitchen, with its top of the range appliances and handy breakfast bar. Upstairs, the master bedroom is particularly special, with its handmade four-poster bed, resplendent amidst acres of honeyed floorboards, and a chic, grass-green couch, sitting sweetly in the sun.

Location

Starting off as a refuge from the plague and the noisome airs for City folk, Highbury was a rural retreat until the Victorians engulfed it in their building-boom megapolis.

Past the busy Highbury Corner, where Hugh Grant turned the air blue in the opening sequence of Four Weddings and a Funeral, lies the inviting grass expanse of Highbury Fields, flanked by prime property. At the top nestles Highbury Barn, a genteel parade of shops where locals stop off in the corner pub, carrying bags of Stinking Bishop from one of London’s prime cheese retailers, the pungent La Fromagerie, or heading to always-packed Italian restaurant Trullo on St Paul’s Road.

There are plenty of choice cultural experiences, like the acoustic Union Chapel on Upper Street (Kris Kristofferson, Martha Wainwright and Lloyd Cole play this season), the Estorick Collection on Canonbury Square harbouring Italian art and an authentic garden café, and the left-field independent theatre performances at the King’s Head, Hen & Chickens and Old Red Lion, reinforcing this area’s tradition of fun-searching free thinking.

Manager info

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:
Starting off as a refuge from the plague and the noisome airs for City folk, Highbury was a rural retreat until the Victorians engulfed it in their building-boom megapolis. Past the busy Highbury Corner, where Hugh Grant turned the air blue in the opening sequence of Four Weddings and a Funeral, lies the inviting grass expanse of Highbury Fields, flanked by prime property. At the top nestles Highbury Barn, a genteel parade of shops where locals stop off in the corner pub, carrying bags of Stinking Bishop from one of London’s prime cheese retailers, the pungent La Fromagerie, or heading to always-packed Italian restaurant Trullo on St Paul’s Road.

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.
