A truly beautiful and extremely elegant Grade II listed Georgian mid terraced house set on one of Canonbury's most desirable roads, within the Canonbury conservation area, moments from the transport at Highbury & Islington station. It should be noted that the properties within the Georgian terrace on Compton Road are wider than the more typical townhouse of a similar age within central Islington. The house was re-modelled by the renowned architect, Eric Parry, in the 1990's, with the redesign incorporating a stunning double height glass atrium opening the rear reception to the kitchen and family room below. Accommodation comprises through kitchen/ dining/ family room on the ground floor, a vast open room with good natural light, aided by the big glass door opening to the garden and the double height glass atrium. On this level can also be found the utility room, under steps storage area to the front and a guest WC. The raised ground floor is home to a stunning, well proportioned through reception room. On the first floor can be found the master bedroom, with 2 beautiful big sash windows with whisper glass double glazing and ornate ceiling cornice. It is in this room where the extra width of the house is most obvious, above and beyond that of your more regular Islington townhouse. To the rear on this floor there is another double bedroom. On the half landing there is a wet room. On the top floor there are 2 further double bedrooms and a bathroom, with Velux window, bath and separate walk-in shower cubicle. Compton Road is an absolutely delightful residential turning, moments from the peace and tranquillity of the New River Walk and the amenities of Highbury Fields, whilst retaining convenient access to the community focal point of the local shops on Canonbury Place, and within close proximity of the shops, bars and restaurants of Upper Street. Transport can be found at Highbury & Islington station (Victoria Line, London Overground and National Rail) with fabulous connections to the City and West End. It is worth noting that the house falls within the catchment of a superb local primary school.
