It’s said that all roads lead to Rome, and perhaps they do, in Italy, but here all roads very much lead to London, and specifically, St John Street. Perched atop a buzzing neighbourhood brasserie, this glowingly cosy Georgian flat is filled with treasures from all around the world. Think Moroccan rugs, European oil paintings and all manner of intriguing knick-knacks. Not that you’ll need to travel far to find fun. Nearby Upper Street is a-buzz with trendy bars and restaurants, and heaps of fabulous independent boutiques, while pretty Exmouth Market is just around the corner.
Your hostess has worked extensively in the photography and film industries, and lived all over the world. After fourteen years of dividing her time between London and Paris she’s about to take off again in search of adventure.
At a crossroads
The building that houses St John Street used to be a pub called ‘The Empress of Russia’, and it was here that the term ‘World Music’ was first coined. Legend has it that a young Bob Dylan also played in the upstairs room – now your sitting room – and the destination of many a fan’s pilgrimage. Looking around at the terrific mix of styles, this eclectic history seems entirely appropriate – the carpets underfoot glow, and you’ll love the Arabic painted chest. The five large windows mean that the room is full of light – and one has a great view of the top deck of any passing bus!
Next door, the master bedroom’s spicy and warm with more Persian rugs and an antique rocking chair, and there’s a bathroom in a rich pea green just opposite.
Nip over to the cinema at Angel, explore Chapel Market, or simply grab a bite to eat at one of Exmouth Market’s many restaurants – Moro, one of the UK’s top tapas destinations is so beloved, it’s even inspired its own range of cookbooks. Saddler’s Wells is a must for anyone who loves modern dance and ballet, or, if you’ve got tickets to the theatre, the tube from Angel to Covent Garden takes less than fifteen minutes.
Additional amenities include: concierge, concierge service, 24 hour on call maintenance, underfloor heating, communications/internet, hob (induction), entertainment.TripAdvisor property ID 2763873...Read more
