A truly rare opportunity to acquire a detached, double fronted Grade II listed house set within the Barnsbury conservation area, on one of Islington's most desirable roads. Situated at the top end (one way section) of Ripplevale Grove, accessed via Thornhill Road, the house provides an absolute wealth of charm & character with a plethora of original features; fireplaces & ceiling cornices. It is fair to say that the house would benefit from refurbishment, but equally there may be opportunity to extend, this would obviously require a buyer to undertake their own due diligence and be subject to planning permission/ listed building consent and conservation area consent. On the ground floor there are 2 beautiful and absolutely charming reception rooms, with the entrance hall leading through to a dining room, which in turn leads to the kitchen, from which one can access the ground floor bathroom. The first floor is home to 2 double bedrooms, with a separate annexe on the half landing housing another bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. There is a substantial basement, currently used as a store area. To the rear is a truly fantastic garden, with side access. The garden is a joy to behold, absolute peace and tranquillity in an idyllic location, retaining fantastic links to Upper Street and the international transport hub that is Kings Cross/ St Pancras International. The property affords superb access to the transport at Highbury & Islington Station (National Rail & Victoria Line) providing excellent links around London; the London Overground with Caledonian Road and Barnsbury Station; and Caledonian Road Station (Piccadilly Line) with trains through the West End out to Heathrow. The buzz of Upper Street is only a short walk away. The celebrated gastropubs the Duchess of Kent, the Albion and the Drapers Arms can be found locally within Barnsbury, and the incredibly popular restaurant/café Sunday is situated just up the road. Supermarkets Waitrose and Sainsbury's are located at the Southern end of Liverpool Road, close to Angel. The new Kings Cross regeneration/ development which includes Granary Square, new restaurants and shops, and a brand new Waitrose, are within close proximity.
