The Islington Property Scene
Once home to Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair, Islington properties have become highly desirable and have pulled families and professionals from their Central London habitats. Close to the City and with first class transport links, Islington property buyers have recently moved out or Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster to achieve better value when upsizing their houses, flats or apartments in Islington.
The Islington property jewel in the crown is Canonbury Square where writers George Orwell and Evelyn Waugh lived. Stylish Victorian Squares and terraces abound in high class conservation areas. This is not to say that Islington has lost its gritty character, with Chapel Market selling clothes, food and household goods daily, with many inexpensive cafes and eateries.
The islington property scene has its fair share of new developments sitting side by side with traditional property. The residential tower blocks Lexicon and Canaletto, a 31 storey curved glass tower with almost 200 apartments rise above City Road, both backing up against Victorian and Georgian terraces.
With a huge varied choice of properties available in Islington, from the stylish terraces and townhouses to the new high rise developments, Islington Estate Agent Morgan Randall is delighted to offer the very latest properties for sale or rent in the N1 area.
