This attractive, well proportioned and well thought out family house on a quiet Islington mews is the culmination of its creator's desire to create a property with a Mediterranean feel combining privacy, light, space, character and individuality.
Over four floors, the property offers a large, open-plan kitchen and dining area and right across the rear of the property are floor to ceiling French doors which lead out on to a tranquil paved garden. On the floor above is a sitting room running the breadth of the house, also with French doors across the room and individual Juliet balconies looking down on to the garden and across the various mature gardens at the back of the property.
The house has four double bedrooms, each with high ceilings, good storage space and the master bedroom comes complete with an en-suite shower room. There is a tiled family bathroom, separate shower room, laundry room and there is also a garage.
The property is located on a quiet mews but is a short walk from Highbury Corner, Highbury Fields, the many restaurants and boutiques of Upper Street and transport links at Highbury & Islington station.
Notes from the vendor - who designed and built the property
This property and 7 others around it were designed and built by me, ably supported by a team of Indian builders and craftsmen who had been refugees from Idi Amin's regime in Uganda. My intention was to transform the mews, which, at the time, was essentially an earth and gravel alley, bordered to the east by a wall defining empty council warehousing and to the west, by tumbledown workshops, into a row of houses with a Mediterranean feel in the front and open facades at the rear. To add interest and character, glass inserts above the front doors came from remnants obtained in the last days of a local firm producing stained glass. Small details above the rear doors were made by an art student we knew.
My overriding aim was to incorporate individual decorative details with interesting spaces, varying ceiling heights and also to optimise sunlight and garden views.
