Gillespie Road, Highbury, N5

Properties to rent and for sale on Gillespie Road, Highbury

In 1932, Arsenal Football Club proposed to rename Gillespie Road Tube to 'Arsenal' and succeeded, although the street name which gave the station its original moniker prevailed. To this day, Gillespie Road is still the site of that Tube Station, which provides access to the Piccadilly Line to Highbury's commuters. King’s Cross is two stops away on the Piccadilly Line, and from there travelling into to the City or beyond is straightforward.

Ideally located between Drayton Park and Highbury Park and to the north west of Highbury Stadium Square, Gillespie Road is an important local artery. A well-known local landmark - Gillespie Road Primary School - is located towards the eastern end, and informs the local demographic, who greatly value its recent Ofsted performance. Generally graded good or outstanding in all categories, well-informed parents move to the area to secure places.

The aesthetic is one which resonates with Highbury's identity as a whole, and the area is characterised by beautiful short rows of two and three storey Victorian terraces, many of which remain as single houses, and some which have been split into bright, spacious apartments. The original features still remain in part, and the properties benefit from small front and rear gardens, desirable white wood framed sash windows, high ceilings, stunning plaster work, and rich exposed floor boards.

Highbury's famous delicatessens, greengrocers, butchers, and boutiques are nearby, and some have found homes on Gillespie Road, too. The vintage furnishers which line the top of Blackstock Road are a short walk away. Equally, local residents are only a figurative stone's throw from some of London's most well-known green spaces: the vast expanse at Highbury Fields, Finsbury Park, and Clissold Park.
