Islington penthouse with roof terrace - All inclusive

A beautiful 95sqm South facing split level two bedroom two bathroom flat with roof terrace on the top floor of a converted warehouse in Holloway Road. The flat combines the convenience of the high street with a secluded feeling as it is recessed from the main road within a gated area and is facing the back of the building. Lovely views over Highgate Hill and Tufnell Park.
The flat comprises a large open plan living/dining area with two large floor to ceiling windows giving on to a lovely roof terrace with a small table for outdoor dining, a deck chair and a 6m planter with flowers. On the lower level there are a very spacious master bedroom with en suite bathroom with shower, a good size double bedroom (currently arranged with twin beds, however one is a pull out bed, hence the bedroom can easily be used as a studio/guest room) and a second bathroom with bath. Excellent storage space on both floors. The flat is ready to live in, as it is fully furnished (including TV, washing machine, dishwasher) and equipped with bed sheets, towels, kitchen crockery, kettle etc.
Possibility to park a car within the gated area, as well as a bike rack also within the gated area.
The living room sofa is a double sofa bed, useful for occasional extra guests.
Beautiful Hampstead Heath is easily reached from the flat for a walk in the wilderness and trendy Angel, Old Street, Kings Cross, Stoke Newington, Dalston and Camden are all a short bus ride away. Three tube lines nearby: Tufnell Park/Archway (Northern Line), Holloway Road (Piccadilly Line), Finsbury Park (Victoria Line) and plenty of buses. Good overground train connections from Highbury and Islington.

A beautiful apartment! The photos do not fully capture it. Very quiet, modern and peaceful. Over two floors, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, there was also a great balcony. Lots of sunlight, especially in the living room. May get a bit hot on sunny days but this is generally a huge advantage. Giovanna is a wonderful person, all went smoothly, and she took care to equip the place with everything you need and more. Great high street just off the building with no street noise whatsoever. Great bus links, the tube stations are a walk away but this was not a problem for me even in winter. I unreservedly recommend - a great seven months experience.

After contacting Giovanna, and seeing her husband and her cute baby only via Skype we built a relationship of trust and moved in to Giovanna's lovely apartment. We could not have asked for a better experience, Giovanna not only allowed us to stay in her clean, safe and well-decorated place, she was also so kind and generous for us to use her baby accessories. As we moved with a 7 week year old baby, that was immensely useful.

We rented her place from September 2013 - January 2014, and we have really enjoyed ourselves.

We felt at home, and respected. The whole endeavor was hassle free.

Communication was always swift, even though Giovanna was enjoying her maternity leave.

All in all, we would highly recommend Giovanna.

We would be happy to elaborate upon our experiences at greater length, feel free to get in touch.
