Islington Properties

Islington N1 - in the London Borough of Islington has a population of over 200,000 and the demand for Islington properties is high. Much housing development took place in the 19th Century consisting of many larger, very well constructed properties, many of which were unfortunately destroyed by bombing in WW2. A large council house building program took place in the 1960's and the stylish Georgian terraces were rediscovered by the Middle Class. The completion of the Victoria Line left conditions perfect for further development of the Islington property scene and developers renovated many of the Georgian and Victorian townhouses.

Islington boast many attraction s for locals and tourists including the World famous Highgate Cemetery and Finsbury Park. Gastro pubs abound in Clerkenwell and one of the oldest cinemas in the country - Screen On The Green shows classics daily.

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.
