the outdoor shower is amazing, it will help wash off the cobwebs on a grey morning
Nestled on a quiet, tree lined street in the heart of Canonbury sits this stunning two bedroom house - it oozes style and boasts design features that will not fail to impress.
The architect has created a spacious layout with an effortless flow over two floors. The first floor opens into a spacious living room, which is perfect for curling up with book or getting friends around for drinks. A glass atrium lets in light and frames a green wall to create a calm vibe. Beyond the atrium is a large entertaining kitchen that is flooded with natural light from the floor to ceiling windows. A stylish mix of exposed beams and brick, parquet floor and a bespoke kitchen with marble surfaces creates a luxurious interior.

the attention to detail and perfect location
On the ground floor you find two bedrooms and two bedrooms. Luxurious carpets, clever storage and beautiful decoration make this part of the house feel like a boutique hotel.
The Master bedroom has an en-suite like no other. The WC and wash basin are what you expect but the shower is a magical feature - step through the large glass door, onto wooden flooring and look up... you feel far from the hustle of London when you see a large shower head protruding from a green living wall with the sky above. What a fabulous way to wake up.
The second bedroom is ideal for a guest bedroom, dressing room or study. The main bathroom is as luxurious as the rest of the property and is waiting for it's new owner.

Our favourite part
A tropical outdoor shower in the centre of London. You will want to get out of bed.
Victorian villas and little antique shops lend amiable charm to this north London neighbourhood.
Echoes of powerful voices reverberate through Canonbury’s brownstone flats and cobblestone streets. Literary giants lend this north London neighbourhood a certain esteem - Canonbury claims George Orwell amongst its long list of famous residents. Rather than self-promotion, Canonbury relies on the subtle allure of its gable-roofed houses and back-woodsy riverwalk to attract attention.
Schools are great, pubs are cracking and travelling is easy.
Canonbury is an attractive leafy residential area (Mrs Clarke prefers it to Barnsbuy - although Mr Clarke was brought up in Barnsbury so you won't see him agreeing). For shoppers, the focus is Cross Street which is home to an eclectic mix of shops and is just off Upper Street. Trullo - our favourite restaurant of all time - can be found tucked away amongst the tree lined streets of central Canonbury.
Art lovers can spend hours poring over the modern Italian art collection at the Estorick Collection known internationally for its core of futurist works as well as figurative art and sculpture dating from the 1890’s to the 1950’s.
Canonbury’s residents also enjoy easy access to the Victoria line at Highbury & Islington station which whisks you to the West End in under fifteen minutes, whilst Canonbury Overground station provides a useful east/west connection across the capital.
