Light and Quiet Flat in Islington, Central London

This is a spacious and light one bedroom flat with a double bedroom, a spacious living room, a kitchen with a table for 4 people you can sit and eat in and a bathroom with a fitted shower. It is suitable for a single or a couple - not suitable for children and no pets or smoking. The flat was recently decorated and the building refurbished. It is in a Victorian building with an office and one other flat underneath. It overlooks a park and is on a residential road, so is quiet. It is also very light and airy, having windows on three sides of the building, so you get the sun throughout the day. It is extremely central and well connected - Holloway and Islington on the Victoria Line and Holloway Road on the Piccadilly Line are both less than 10 minutes away on foot, while the Angel on the Northern line is 15-20 minutes away. There is also a good bus service and the Overground from Highbury Islington, so pretty much anywhere in London is easily accessible.The British Library is one stop on the Victoria Line, Oxford Circus four stops. From Holloway Road you can get to Covent Garden, Leicester Square and South Kensington, giving you quick and direct access to all the main museums, clubs, shops. There are also direct connections to Heathrow and Stansted and the Eurostar is one stop away at Kings Cross. Upper Street and Holloway Road shops, pubs and restaurants are all nearby, as is Islington gym and swimming pool. There is also a convenience store next to the office below the flat and a good restaurant and a gastro pub less than 5 minutes walk away. It is handy for pretty much all the main London Colleges and Universities - you can get to UCL, Birkbeck, LSE, Kings, Westminster and London Metropolitan in 15 minutes, Goldsmith's is also quick via the overground from Highbury and Islington to New Cross.
