A fine Victorian house set within this prime highly sought after ‘Alwyne’s’ of Canonbury. Positioned within the cul de sac of Alwyne Road, this wider and substantial example enjoys a quiet setting with the New River to the back. This impressive and grand house enjoys a wide residential plot with own large garage and off road parking to the side. The house offers fabulous social space with a magnificent drawing room of enviable proportions, great natural light . The quality fitted kitchen is well fitted with a central island, 6 door ‘AGA’ and integrated appliances. A secluded study is set off from the dining room. A walk in pantry/wine store, utility room and boiler room provide further useful ancillary space. The lower ground floor has great ceiling height and the dining room can be closed by sliding portioned doors. Two tall French doors lead out to the landscaped South westerly facing garden.
The wide elegant staircase, with wrought iron balustrades rises from the raised ground floor to the master bedroom level. This generous space provides a delightful master bedroom with a modern, private en-suite bathroom. A master dressing room is set to the rear and a further modern shower room. The second floor offers two further bedrooms and a modern bathroom. An electronic drop down staircase leads to a fun loft room which I understand has been a firm favourite of children’s sleep overs many times over the years.
The large garage is set to the side of the house with off road parking to the front. Internally there is an adjoining door to the main house for those blustery and wet days, whilst still offering plenty of extra storage space. The garden is a delight having been landscaped by Butter Wakefield (Chelsea Flower show exhibitor, Gold Medal and People’s Choice at RHS Chatsworth) and backing onto the New River walk.
Alwyne road is set in the heart of the Canonbury conservation area and well placed for central Islington including the many shops and restaurants on Upper Street, Camden Passage and theatres. It is well placed by transports links at The Angel (Northern line and buses) and Highbury corner (Highbury and Islington, London Overground, national rail and buses) both close by and linking the City, West end, Stratford and Canary Wharf area.
