Baalbec Road is an intimate, well-positioned street, located at the crest of Highbury Grove; the Southernmost extremity of Highbury Park. Named after the ancient Lebanese city of Baalbek, famed for The Temple of Bacchus; a UNESCO heritage site, and one of the largest and best preserved Roman Temples anywhere in the world. No such comparable architecture exists in Highbury(!), but the grand, surrounding streets, including Calabria Road, Liberia Road and Highbury Place all enjoy a distinctive character; identified by decorative plaster work, tall red brick town houses, beautiful bay windows, and steep pitched roofs. The architectural style is uniform along the street, and even newer buildings do not detract from the common identity. Located on the site formerly occupied by market gardens to the East of Highbury, and behind a stunning Georgian terrace, Baalbec Road's proximity to Highbury Fields informs its enduring popularity with local residents, professional tenants, and owner occupiers. On any given sunny, summer weekend, families enjoy picnics on the grass, the Tennis Courts play host to budding Wimbledon Champions, and Londoners used to hectic lifestyles unwind with a good book and a glass of wine.
Baalbec Road is enviably situated within under five minutes' walk from Highbury and Islington Station, providing access to the Victoria Line, and London Overground. These connections make travel to Hoxton and Shoreditch High Street straightforward, or Kings' Cross; next Southbound station on the Victoria Line.
Nearby, St Joan of Arc Primary School informs why so many families are keen to settle in Highbury, and the local catchment area, and Highbury Baptist Church is a pillar of the local community. Highbury; famous for its boutiques, coffee shops, and delicatessens is a quiet neighbourhood flanked by Islington to the South, Stoke Newington to the East, and Finsbury Park to the North.
