Properties to rent and for sale on Canonbury Square, Islington

“London’s most beautiful square” according to the Evening Standard back in the 1950s. Canonbury Square is one of the earliest square gardens in Islington, originally planned out in the early 1800s. Through the years it has attracted a great host of significant figures such as George Orwell and Samuel Phelps. Its classic Georgian style and beautiful green gardens are stereotypical of Islington. Most of the houses here remain unchanged, although there are some flats which have been converted to an excellent standard, mostly retaining original features and characteristics of the original buildings.

There is great company within the area, and given the great history of this location there is a society which has been set up to preserve the special character, largely by opposing mass redevelopments and building alterations that would not fit the style. The Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art can also be found on Canonbury Square.

You will often find joggers nearby, running the length of the New River Walk. The walkway runs along the New River, an aqueduct built by Sir Hugh Myddelton to bring in fresh water to the City. There are excellent schools nearby, making this an attractive location for families, and residents have no lack of choice when it comes to eating out, whether they are looking for a fine dining experience along Upper Street or some seasonal veg at the Canonbury Tavern, where George Orwell wrote part of the world famous novel, ‘1984’.

With regards to transport, Highbury & Islington station is a five minute stroll from Canonbury Square, providing access on the Victoria Line and the London Overground. Essex Road station is a short walk down Canonbury Road, and for those needing the Northern Line Angel Tube station is only 10 minutes away. There are plenty of bus routes operating in the area making this an ideal place to live, moments from anywhere in the City but in a tranquil setting in the village-like heart of Canonbury.
