1 Bedroom Apartment Rental in Highbury, Camden - Islington 1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms - Sleeps 2 Description 1 Bedroom Apartment Rental in Highbury, Camden - Islington 1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms - Sleeps 2 Located in the historic Highbury Square and Avenell Road, this one bedroom furnished apartment provides the essence of Highbury, Islington. This north London location was converted into modern apartments by award winning Architects about 12 years ago and benefits from a light, open plan design. It overlooks the old football pitch now transformed into beautiful gardens with water features. The former field of Highbury Square has become a commemorative area and community garden, beautifully lit up at night and is just one of the many highlights of this condo like apartment. The flat offers an array of stylish features like hardwood flooring, open floor plan, and large windows. The living room has a large sectional sofa, seating up to 6 people (and can be converted into a double bed), facing the TV and wall to wall windows of the former pitch view. A dining table with extra seating is perfect for gathering around and shelving is offered for storage. The kitchen is open with white cabinets, black counter tops, and stainless steel appliances. In the bedroom, a super king's size bed completes the room along with two nightstands, 2 chests of drawers dresser, two elongated windows with natural light, and a bean chair. Two contemporary bathrooms (one is en suite in the bedroom) are fully tiled with glass shower doors and chrome faucets. The other is in the wide corridor so ideal if visitors are staying and using the sofa bed in the living room. For football fans, this location is perfect to visit the stadium, celebrate victories, and live in the former stadium of Arsenal Football Club. On game day, make your way to Emirates Stadium (800m/0.5mi) or find a local pub like The Gunners (300m/0.2mi) to support with other fans. Best features: In the past guests have always loved the 2 bathrooms, the view overlooking award winning gardens, with light pouring in through floor to ceiling glass sliding doors in the living room. It's incredibly quiet for London and literally within minutes of the tube - you cross the gardens (it is a secure development - i.e. residents have a fop key to open the gates, gardens etc so people not living in the development do not have access) to get to the tube and you are in King's Cross in 5 minutes and Piccadilly circus in 10 minutes. Wonderfully convenient. Great shops and restaurants in Highbury Barn, 2 minutes’ walk away - an Italian delicatessen, best fishmonger, best butcher in London, a very good pub, a lovely little Turkish restaurant, a French cheese shop called 'The Fromagerie'. Upper Street in Islington is a further delight with the Almeda theatre on the doorstep and restaurants like Ottolenghi, and many more. Amenities: TV, Internet, Laundry inside the apartment, Dryer, Gym in the building with a pool and sauna (need to take out monthly membership, Parking Space, Pets not allowed, Smoking not permitted, Elevator.
