Property description

In the wings

Step out from parted curtains onto the airy balcony of Owen Street for a striking view of London – a glittering cast led by the Shard’s poised lines, with the chorus of bustling Upper Street below. As you tread the polished floorboards inside you’ll find the demure palette is enlivened by bold headboards, colourful lamps, and a contemporary, curvaceous dining set. As quirky modern art reminds you, laughter matters, so perhaps you’ll opt to see an upbeat dance production at Sadler’s Wells Theatre. Or if romance is more your scene, there’s no set sweeter than the sitting room’s sumptuous grey sofa and snuggly fleece throw.

Principal director

Your publicity-shy host prefers to direct matters from afar, leaving the stage set for your grand entrance. Only a headshot here and there, and some theatrical flourishes, leave his mark.

Sitting in the gods

Delicate creams and taupes make an extended run throughout, with glimpses of colour coming from a pop-art installation of London’s high-rises as well as soft lime furnishings. Improvise a feast in the well-equipped pine and chrome kitchen, or freshen up in the gleaming bathroom before visiting one of Upper Street’s many vibrant eateries.

And when it’s time to take your bow, you’re guaranteed a warm reception in the two soothing bedrooms, each with a choice of well-positioned, stylish chair or plush bed atop which to recover from the day’s performance.

Location

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.

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.

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.
