Aberdeen Road is enviably located between Highbury Park and Highbury New Park. Comprising a relatively short stretch between Sotheby Road at its northernmost extremity, and terminating at Aberdeen Park due South, Aberdeen Road's uniform red brick townhouses promote a stable, imperial identity which punctuates Highbury's otherwise genteel, unimposing Victorian streets. Equally, decorative Arts and Crafts motifs decorate local exteriors, which are also informed by late nineteenth century Gothicism. From decorative window latches, to heavy door knockers, plaster moulds, and distinctly dystopian proportions, the privilege of living on Aberdeen Road is a stunning proposition for architectural enthusiasts.
Many of the properties on Aberdeen Road remain as single-occupancy addresses, although some have been split into luxurious one, two, three, and four bedroom apartments. High ceilings, large sash windows, decorative plaster work, and original fireplaces are just some of the pre-twentieth century features which occupants move to Aberdeen Road for, although it should nonetheless be acknowledged that over the passage of tie, kitchens and bathrooms have generally been modernised tastefully. The very best of these delicately balance the original fixtures and fittings with a broadly minimalist contemporary aesthetic.
Being in the heart of Highbury, residents of Aberdeen Road enjoy proximity to a wealth of local resources and amenities. The boutiques, coffee shops, and delicatessens of Highbury Barn are a short distance away, and good local schools and places of worship are local, too. Those occupants who enjoy being near some of London's famous open green spaces will appreciate the short distance to Highbury Fields, Clissold Park, and Finsbury Park. Equally, the Tube is close; Arsenal (Piccadilly Line) being a short walk away, and Drayton Park Overground ferrying commuters to and from Old Street and Moorgate daily.
