Upon entering the flat you are greeted by a south facing bedroom and bathroom which sit at the top of the stairwell on a half landing.

The double reception with wonderful fireplace and bay fronted windows look north over the front of the property and the separate kitchen adjoins and accesses the 1st floor south facing roof terrace. Penn Road sits within the Hillmarton conservation area. ‘The majority of the area was first developed for housing in the 1850s and 1860s, either with pairs of three and four storey semi-detached villas or as terraces, some in small groups. Some of the villas were designed by Truefitt. The area has a spacious scale, with wide streets and grand houses often with views between the villas into the substantial rear gardens. There are many mature trees both in public and private areas which enhance the character of the area. The three churches, or former churches, in Camden Road and Hillmarton Road are fine examples of mid Victorian ecclesiastical architecture and the Camden Road church (now Islington Arts Factory) is an important landmark although sadly truncated. The generally consistent historic and architectural quality of the architecture gives the area a special character and appearance which it is desirable to preserve and enhance’.
