On the wide, tree-lined Grosvenor Avenue in highly desirable Canonbury is this bright and spacious two bedroom, two bathroom apartment on the lower ground floor of this opulent and stylish modern development.
Finished throughout with dark wooden floors, this striking apartment comes with a contemporary handless kitchen with white stone worktop and fully integrated appliances. Double patio doors lead out onto the impressive, private, south-facing terrace with recessed lighting, perfect for outdoor entertaining. The large master bedroom has access to its own private sunken terrace and a large decadent ensuite bathroom with Hansgrohe fixtures and white marble tiles. A further guest bathroom features textured grey stone effect porcelain tiles. The apartment also benefits from the use of a communal garden and bike store.
A small area, rich in history, Canonbury began life as a manor house surrounded by bucolic fields and meadows, built by the Canons of St Bartholomew's Priory in the 14th century as a summer retreat. The area stayed this way for almost four centuries, with a tower folly added by Prior Bolton in 1526, which still remains today.
Nestled in between the northern end of Upper Street and Essex Road, Canonbury is a leafy oasis of peaceful grandeur. Just to the north of Grosvenor Avenue is the village-like Highbury Barn, the gourmets mecca, and Canonbury Station, on the North & East London Overground network is literally at the end of the road.
A short walk in the other direction is Highbury & Islington Station, which is also on the Overground network as well as the Underground Victoria line. The latter connects to stations from Brixton to Walthamstow Central, via Kings Cross St Pancras, which has a rich network of overground and tube links to every part of London as well as numerous rail links to the rest of the country and Europe.
