A striking, and unusual split-level apartment located in the North Stand at Highbury Stadium Square; the former home of Arsenal Football Club. Comprising one very large bedroom, living room, and separate kitchen; the property also includes a first floor balcony which overlooks a private terrace. Both are South-facing, with views across the old pitch; now a stunning communal garden. The property feels roomy throughout; the living room and bedroom are particularly well proportioned. Unlike so many one bedroom apartments at Highbury Stadium Square (or other sought-after newer developments), the property includes a separate kitchen. Another large space, and well equipped to include double oven, dishwasher, and large integrated fridge freezer. There is ample worktop space, tastefully complimented by good overhead storage. Both bathrooms are finished in a dark tile, and are clean, well equipped spaces. The master bedroom includes an ensuite shower room.
The Concierge and his team are onsite twenty four seven, and can be reached by residents at any time. The landscaped central garden (on the site of the old pitch) is open to residents all-year-round, being accessible by Highbury Stadium's occupants only, and whose security transmitters allow free movement through the site. The pool and gym are run by Fitness First, and membership is by separate negotiation from the rent. The facilities are comprehensive, the staff are knowledgeable, and the environment is kept very clean. The steam room is perfect for unwinding after a long day.
Situated moments from Arsenal Tube (Piccadilly Line) and in the heart of Zone 2, Kings Cross is a couple of stops' underground, and close by is Drayton Park Overground Station; providing regular train access to and from Central London, Old Street being only a few minutes' journey. The local area is mature, and the environment is peaceful. Highbury is an intimate residential pocket to the North of Islington, and benefits from some of London's great green spaces; Highbury Fields and Clissold Park. Good local restaurants, greengrocers, delicatessens, and boutiques are within a few minutes' walk, too.
