Notable for being the grounds of an old Victorian saw mill, Bramwell Mews is a small gated development in Islington's popular Barnsbury conservation area. The courtyard retains the original layout from the mill, however the only remnant that still stands is the chimney - the listed structure has polygonal shape with blue bricks commonly associated with the era. The properties here are typical mews houses with two floors and lovely gardens to the rear.
Residents have the luxury of an allocated parking space within the gated courtyard, additional permits can be purchased for the surrounding streets. Caledonian and Barnsbury rail station is a short two minute walk away providing National Rail services. A slightly longer stroll of 15 minutes will bring you to either King's Cross or Angel tube station, both with London Underground lines. Buses regularly operate along Caledonian Road meaning that residents here are spoilt for choice on local transport options.
There is only a small selection of houses in the mews development, most of who are occupied by owners. We have let to young professionals in the past, which is reflective of the surrounding area itself. Barnsbury is one of the most sought after locations in Islington. It still offers green spaces and tree-lined streets, which give off a lovely village feel bang in the heart of London. Many celebrities and historical figures have called Barnsbury their home, including former Prime Minister Tony Blair and "Gone Girl" actress Rosamund Pike.
Being sandwiched between Caledonian Road to the west and Upper Street to the East there is no shortage of options when it comes to food, drinks and entertainment. Perhaps the most frequented watering hole for the locals is the flower fronted gastropub, the Albion. It's a Portico favourite, not just because of the lovely sunny evenings in the garden, but the food here is cracking!
