5 bed family home, Canonbury Park North, Islington
This is a fabulous family home, including spacious open-plan kitchen/ dining/ family room, large garden with children's play equipment and in easy walking distance of Highbury Fields, with its tennis courts and open air swimming pool facilities.
For formal occasions there is a large traditional living room which has the flexibility to be separated (by large double doors) into two smaller living rooms. Two elegant fire places provide focal points at each end and chandeliers gracefully hang from the ceilings. At one end there are two good sized comfy sofas, an elegant lounge chair and a grand leather pouffe. At the other end there are two lounge chairs in which to curl up and read a book. There are windows at both aspects of the room and dark wooden flooring stretches across the length of the space, accessorized by patterned and textured rugs.
There is a large modern kitchen consisting of plenty of storage units and work surfaces. The vibrant red Aga provides a burst of colour against the white units and stainless steel appliances including microwave, dishwasher, kettle and coffee maker. Leading off the kitchen is a family area with dining table and chairs, contemporary style sofa and large flat screen. As an added bonus each of the televisions in the house are equipped with the full Sky Plus TV package.
Accessed from the kitchen there is a secure garden including lawn, decking and paved patio areas. It is perfect for children and big kids alike! For the children there is a trampoline positioned on the lawn and hours of fun to be had playing in the children's area with climbing equipment erected on soft wood chippings. For grown ups, dine al fresco using the garden dining set with large table and chairs.
