A rare opportunity to purchase a substantial (3,500sq ft) house on Highbury's most iconic terrace fronting the greenery of Highbury Fields, with the opportunity to modernise. This Georgian (circa 1789) Grade II listed mid terraced family home is the only one on the terrace to benefit from an 'additional' floor atop the house, believed to have been added by Captain Joseph Huddart, the original owner. The house affords an absolute wealth of accommodation arranged over 6 floors and benefiting from a 93ft garden to the rear.
Accommodation comprises bedroom on the top (fourth) floor with windows to both the front and the rear providing views across Highbury Fields. The 3rd floor is home to 2 further double bedrooms. On the 2nd floor can be found an additional 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. On the 1st floor there is a study positioned to the rear with views across the gardens of the houses of Highbury Terrace and Highbury Terrace Mews. To the front there is a stunning reception room benefitting from a wonderful high ceiling, ornate ceiling cornice, exposed floor boards, a beautiful marble fireplace and incorporating 3 floor to ceiling sash windows with views across the greenery of Highbury Fields. This room really is rather special and is without doubt the piece de resistance of the house. The half landing is home to the family bathroom. The kitchen/ dining room sits on the raised ground floor with direct views to the front of Highbury Fields through the 2 beautiful sash windows, both with working shutters and over the garden to the rear. The utility room is located on the half landing with access out to the garden. The lower ground floor is home to a self contained 1 double bedroom flat, accessed via steps down from the pavement and with its own private entrance. Accommodation comprises bedroom to the rear, bathroom and open-plan kitchen/ dining/ reception room. To the rear of the house is a wonderful 93ft west facing garden, affording peace and tranquillity in such a central setting and with wonderful views of the greenery of surrounding gardens.
