Hemingford Road runs almost the full length of Barnsbury, from Offord Road in the north to Copenhagen Street in the south. It comprises a mixture of Victorian and Georgian stock, mainly set back from the road, and is tree-lined in stretches. The property is close to the junction of Offord Road, within 150m of Caledonian Road and Burnsbury overland and National Rail.
Barnsbury is a residential suburb in the London Borough of Islington. Set between the regenerated Kings Cross quarter and Angel, the area was home to Tony Blair and the birth of New Labour before Mr Blair made the trip across town to Downing Street.
Housing stock is a mixture of beautiful Georgian and Victorian townhouses, with some Edwardian stock and a scattering of new developments, including some of the most prestigious portered developments in North London. One of the delights of the area is the lack of uniformity in housing and street layout, with the southern section of Thornhill Road a prime example of how the area has developed organically, but in an extremely aesthetically pleasing fashion.
Barnsbury Wood, a small nature reserve, which can be accessed from Crescent Street, is home to a selection of sycamore, ash and elder trees which provide a home to a variety of wildlife, and there is a selection of open spaces and garden squares in the area, almost all of which are open to the public.
The area features some of the most prestigious property in Islington, and some of the most beautiful streets, with Ripplevale Grove, Barnsbury Square and Lonsdale Square among the most sought-after addresses. Traditional English pubs serving upscale gastro fare to well-heeled clients mix with some more cutting edge offerings closer to Upper Street, and it is this mix of the traditional English charm on the doorstep of the bustle and international flavours of Upper Street and Kings Cross which lend the area much of its appeal.Description
Superbly presented, very bright one bedroom flat set in an attractive period house on Hemingford Road. The property features a high standard, modern kitchen and bathroom and a pretty private patio area.
