There are also two further rooms with centre fireplaces, wood flooring, wooden shutters and high ceilings.

    One of these rooms also allows for additional access onto the kitchen directly, asking this a perfect separate dining room.

    There are two well sized double bedrooms on the first floor at the back of the house both with views onto the garden, as well as a large family bathroom. On the half landing to the front of the house are the master suite with a walk through dressing room and en-site bathroom with a separate shower, as well as a further double bedroom both with an outlook onto the beautiful front garden and part of the tree lined street.

    In addition at the end of the beautiful garden there is a self contained detached studio with a shower room and a small kitchenette which would make for a perfect home office or gym.

    Ripplevale Grove is a sought after position; the top of the road is made up of a selection of similar low build houses, all enjoying generous rear gardens, and restricted access to traffic.

Local information

  • Barnsbury is a residential suburb in the London Borough of Islington. Set between the regenerated Kings Cross quarter and Angel, the area was home to Tony Blair and the birth of New Labour before Mr Blair made the trip across town to Downing Street.
  • Housing stock is a mixture of beautiful Georgian and Victorian townhouses, with some Edwardian stock and a scattering of new developments, including some of the most prestigious portered developments in North London. One of the delights of the area is the lack of uniformity in housing and street layout, with the southern section of Thornhill Road a prime example of how the area has developed organically, but in an extremely aesthetically pleasing fashion.
  • Barnsbury Wood, a small nature reserve, which can be accessed from Crescent Street, is home to a selection of sycamore, ash and elder trees which provide a home to a variety of wildlife, and there is a selection of open spaces and garden squares in the area, almost all of which are open to the public.
  • The area features some of the most prestigious property in Islington, and some of the most beautiful streets, with Ripplevale Grove, Barnsbury Square and Lonsdale Square among the most sought-after addresses. Traditional English pubs serving upscale gastro fare to well-heeled clients mix with some more cutting edge offerings closer to Upper Street, and it is this mix of the traditional English charm on the doorstep of the bustle and international flavours of Upper Street and Kings Cross which lend the area much of its appeal.
