Time Warp Islington Flat - Upper Street, London, N1
Guide Price £995,000
This amazing time warp Islington flat is located on Upper Street equidistant between The Angel and Highbury Corner and offers immense charm with the flexibility to create a bespoke and unique home.
Currently 1353 sqft and with a sunny, peaceful roof terrace to the rear, this property has an atmosphere all of its own, obvious from the moment you emerge into the first floor living room. The apartment is entered via a ‘blink and you will miss it’ secretive door amongst the commercial entrances on Upper Street, perfect for those not looking for the usual portered block of flats.
The first floor provides a large double reception room, with exposed beams, period windows (with shutters) to the front and access to the roof terrace to the rear, with its very Dickensian roof top views.
The second floor currently houses the kitchen and separate dining room; really the ‘hub’ of the apartment for the current owners. Incoming buyers may wish to move the kitchen to the first floor, closer to the roof terrace for outside entertaining.
The third floor provides a large double bedroom to the front, a smaller double to the rear and bathroom.
On the market for the first time in over two decades, this wonderful triplex apartment is now ready for the next chapter in its near 400 year history! For those obsessed with food and drink, the property is located dangerously opposite Ottolenghi and a few doors down from Le Mercurey. The Almeida Theatre is just around the corner, as are endless other gastronomic hotspots.
Tenure: the apartment will be sold with a new long lease extension, with confirmation of the length to follow.
