Avenell Road, Highbury, N5

Properties to rent and for sale on Avenell Road, Highbury

When Arsenal played at home, fans would gather on Avenell Road, famous for being on the east side of Highbury Stadium, and for hosting the main entrance to the ground. Since Arsenal Football Club's move into the Emirates Stadium, the character of the street has shifted, and it now has the identity of a peaceful North London residential avenue. North Islington is known for these type of roads, which offer a mix of large, late-Victorian single houses, elegantly poised between converted town houses and modern apartments. Today, new local residents associate the Highbury Stadium Square development with trendy young-professionals, who marvel at the idea of living on a site built associated so richly with sporting success.

Spanning the distance between Monsell Road to the north, and rising towards Aubert Park at its southern extremity, Avenell Road provides outstanding access to some of Highbury's well-known places of interest. St John's Highbury Vale and Gillespie Primary School are both highly regarded by Ofsted, and are within a few minutes' walk. This certainly shapes the local demographic - aspirational families who want that upbeat central London sense of activity, as well as a peaceful, cultured environment. Highbury Fields, Clissold Park, and Finsbury Park are all nearby, too, perfect for picnics on a summer Sunday afternoon, long walks, or bike rides across town.

Being positioned so ideally in the heart of Highbury, local amenities are within easy reach. Islington's famous coffee shops, delicatessens, greengrocers, and book shops are a few moments' walk away. Avenell Road is also well-serviced by transport connections in and out of London; Arsenal Tube (Piccadilly Line), and Drayton Park Overground are nearby, providing excellent access to Old Street, King’s Cross, and beyond. Local bus routes towards Upper Street are a short walk away on Highbury Park.
