Properties to rent and for sale on Brooksby Street, Islington

Brooksby Street is an attractive tree-lined street located in the heart of Barnsbury. It is a popular cul-de-sac as it has no through traffic and is closed at one end to all but emergency vehicles. This is an arrangement that has stood the test of time, over the last 25 years, and still works very well. With no vehicular access from Thornhill Road on the west the only access for drivers is via Liverpool Road at its east.

Brooksby Street is situated within easy reach of the broad selection of fashionable shops, bars, restaurants and the wonderful transport facilities of Islington and Upper Street. Nearby trains include Angel, Highbury & Islington and Caledonian Road & Barnsbury.

The street itself is both wide and quiet and consists of two unbroken terraces of gorgeous Georgian houses. The houses on the northern side of the road were primarily built by Jeffery Morgan and Thomas Harding Bilham in the early 1820s. By the end of the 1830s, most of the present Georgian terraces on the north and south sides had been completed. These houses, mainly two-story plus a lower ground floor were originally built for workers, artisans and tradespeople to live while constructing houses on nearby streets to meet the demands from new residents.

Until very recently, Brooksby Street remained part of a light industrial district with numerous workshops and warehouses. Brooksby Mews, located just off Brooksby Street, contained a number of workshops including a taxi electrical repair shop which shut down in the mid-1990s after a fire, and is still remembered by many of London’s experienced cabbies.

Barnsbury hosts a wonderful selection of traditional English pubs including ‘The Drapers Arms’ and ‘Hemingford Arms’ - both well known for serving upscaled plates of gastro bliss to customers. Visiting the local pubs is a great way to meet the residents of the area, many of which love to call Barnsbury home.

Brooksby Street is full of traditional English charm. It is right on the doorstep of the bustle and international flavours of Upper Street which lends to the area much of its appeal.
