Rose Court is a chic, contemporary space that's sure to get your tail wagging. Smart and bang up to date, there’s space aplenty here, and a balcony with one of the best views north of the river. Islington’s a young and funky part of the city mixing creativity with affluence- its artisan cafes filled with everyone from go-getting politicians to playwrights. The restaurant scene is exceptional, and the bars stay open long past bedtime. So bound in and have a good sniff around – for in this home, we know you’ll be barking up the right tree.
Your multi-talented host runs a hedge fund and a dog hotel. He’s utterly smitten with his own loveable hound (you’ll see his portrait hanging in the sitting room). When the pair aren’t romping around Islington together, you can find him snowboarding, reading, or enjoying a glass of wine in one of Upper Street’s cooler bars.
At Rose Court, being in the dog house is a positive pleasure. The main space is open plan, with floor to ceiling windows looking out over Islington Green. Light filters through the treetops onto modern furnishings, the corner sofa’s as comfy as they come, but you may find yourself rejecting it in favour of what must be the largest beanbag in town. Doors open onto a lovely balcony, while the kitchen’s separate from the main room, and there’s space for eight at the dining table. There are two bedrooms, both with king-sized beds and their own bathrooms. The master has creamy walls and a mosaicked bath, while the second bedroom’s delicate in dove grey, with a powerful shower next door.
You’re right in the centre of Islington, one of the capital’s trendiest zones. Mingle with media types in Upper Street’s incredible selection of restaurants, or push past the yummy mummies in the boutiques. You’re next to two cinemas, and the N1 bar culture rivals that of Soho. But if you do want to venture into town, hop onto a bus, or catch the tube from Highbury Corner – you can be at Oxford Circus in eight minutes.
