Finsbury Park Road comprises one of Highbury's most sought-after addresses. Sitting just behind the popular local amenities of Blackstock Road, Finsbury Park Road is a quiet, very residential street. It is neither a through road, nor bus route, nor cut through; being split into gated sections along the course of its splendid length. Long, wide, and mature, Finsbury Park Road is attractive to professional families who seek to settle in Highbury, and is lined with pairs of late-Victorian semi-detached Villas; many of which continue to exist as single houses. The exposed brick and painted exteriors promote a stable aesthetic along the length of the street, and the old trees propose an understated grandiosity; whether their boughs are decorated with spring time blossom, summer leaves, or crisp winter frost.
Access to North Islington and Highbury's open green spaces is straightforward, and Finsbury Park Road is enviably located within a short walk from Finsbury Park, Clissold Park, and Highbury Fields. Perfect for a morning run, enjoying a family picnic, or tossing a frisbee amongst friends; residents enjoy proximity to these stunning expanses. Stoke Newington Church Street's trendy independent boutiques and vintage shops, and Highbury's delicatessens, cafes, greengrocers, and bookshops are all nearby, too. Spoilt for choice indeed!
The occupants enjoy the peace and quiet of Finsbury Park Road along with its enviable closeness to London's transport network. Finsbuy Park Station provides mainline railway and underground services (Victoria Line), and Arsenal Tube (on Gillespie Road) is only a short walk away on the Piccadilly Line, providing regular services to and from Kings Cross. Local schools, including Gillespie Primary and St John's Highbury Vale Church of England Primary are all reputable, and have recently been commended by OFSTED.
