A truly fabulous house, set around a private courtyard. A beautiful entertaining space with 6 bedrooms and five bathrooms. Parking for 2 cars, or more if door into courtyard is opened. Close to transport links to central London. Wonderful sunny roof garden. A separate one bed studio flat within the property.This large open plan house is spread only over 2 floors, but covers 4000 square foot. It is a hidden secret of London. What's more, the rooftop garden is completely sheltered by trees making it feel as if you are in the clouds.
It is very unusual to have such a large house in London on only 2 floors, with both a ground floor courtyard and large tiered roof garden with a garage that can fit 2 cars, or even three if you choose to park one in the courtyard.
The current bedding can accommodate 11 people. 5 bedrooms are large and spacious with ensuite bathrooms and double beds. There is a single bedroom off the master suite.
modern fully equipped kitchen, two washing machines and dryers. Underfloor heating in the principal reception rooms. Dining possible on the roof garden, where there is a separate mini kitchen. Also on the roof is a very large area for private sun bathing etc..
The access to local transport is very convenient, as the Caledonian Road tube station is about 400 metres away. This is only 4 stops from central London. This house is a real haven after a day in the city.

ISLINGTON is one of the most charming Georgian villages in London, now transformed into an area with abundant restaurants, pubs and theatres. The area the house is in is called Barnsbury, which is only one tube stop from Kings Cross and four from Covent Garden right in the heart of London.
In the immediate vicinity are three eating places, and one of the restaurants, next door but one, will let you order food by phone and bring it to you on a plate in the house, as if you were sitting in the restaurant.
There is a garage for 2 cars, so if you wish to use this as a base to go out of London, then its very easy from here. Also parking in central London is mostly free and easy after 6.30pm.
