A truly amazing penthouse apartment arranged over the top 2 floors of this elegant, wider than average, Grade II listed Georgian end of terrace house. It really does have to be seen to be believed, from the outside, you wouldn't think this exists. The property was lovingly refurbished in the 1990's, but clearly in a very forward thinking fashion and with supreme attention to detail, offering a fantastic blend of modern industrial style with characterful original features. The property benefits from its own private entrance to the rear of the building, with a metal staircase leading up to the second floor. The second floor is home to the master bedroom, which is located to the rear overlooking the gardens, and benefits from a rather smashing dressing room. Also on this level can be found the second double bedroom, bathroom and storage cupboard under the stairs. The third floor is home to an all encompassing vast triple aspect open-plan kitchen/ dining/ family room, part of which benefits from a raised ceiling, again with windows to 3 sides. What separates this room from most others is a) the views across 3 sides, b) the natural light c) the ceiling height and the sheer feeling of space. An industrial style metal staircase leads up to the access out to the roof terrace. The terrace is absolutely amazing, with views right across the London skyline, this is undoubtedly it's piece de resistance. Situated within the beautiful white stucco fronted terrace, set back from Highbury Park, the property is within close proximity of the focal point of the community at Highbury Barn with shops including Godfreys Butchers, La Fromagerie, Da'Mario Italian Delicatessen and a fishmongers. The property benefits from excellent transport links: it is moments from Drayton Park (National Rail) with trains to both Kings Cross & Moorgate giving superb frequent access to the City, and to Arsenal (Piccadilly Line). It is a short walk to Highbury & Islington Station (National Rail, Overground and Victoria Line) with further transport at Canonbury (Overground towards Canary Wharf).
