This morning we had the pleasure of attending Islington Giving‘s ‘100 Women for Islington Giving’ event in honour of International Women’s Day.

The event was truly inspiring, with talks from Islington Giving, The Parent House, the Middle Eastern Women Society and Organisation, and The Guardian Foundation. We were particularly moved by one of the parents from The Parent House, who left us with the words “behind every strong woman… is herself”, which was met by a huge cheer and applause! 

Even though we know Islington to be a fantastic borough with plenty of arts venues, independent shops and restaurants, and a wonderful community – there are still many people struggling who need support. The work that these charities do truly help those who are most in need, so do take a look at their websites to find out more about how you can donate or get involved.

23 Elizabeth Avenue, N1 is a collection of three superb mews houses in Islington, which have been meticulously redeveloped behind an original Victorian warehouse facade.

Each house offers four double bedrooms, two en suite and two family bathrooms, double height ceilings at ground floor level, mezzanine office space and terracing on each floor. The development has been crafted with exceptional attention to detail and the houses have been designed to combine dynamic open living spaces while retaining an abundance of classic period features. Each house also includes a spacious basement.

23 Elizabeth Avenue is a short walk from both the Regent’s Canal and the busy hub of Angel and Upper Street.

The Harper Building is a striking new Islington development, comprising a trio of exclusive blocks offering a range of studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments.

The building was previously home to the Harper Piano Co., manufacturers of pianos and other musical instruments on the site from the 1900s. The delightfully restored building offers buyers the best of both worlds: a contemporary modern interior within a beautifully classic exterior. The red brick façade and sandstone pelmets have been delicately restored and the interior floors, walls and ceilings have been stripped back to reinstate the spacious period dimensions.
