Bordered by Thornhill Road Gardens to the north and Culpeper Park to the south, Cloudesley Road offers a tranquil escape from the City, while still being within an arm’s reach of the buzz of Upper Street. This coveted part of the Barnsbury conservation area is characterised by handsome, gated Georgian houses, many of which have now been converted into flats, which run the length of this tree-lined street.
Residents of Cloudesley Road can apply to the local Islington council to obtain a parking permit for this street, however many choose this location for its accessibility to the City and the West End by train. Angel Tube is only a 5 minute walk away, and just a little further is Highbury & Islington, which allows access to the Overground and Victoria line. Paris isn’t even out of reach - and those wanting a romantic weekend away can just hop on a train from nearby Kings Cross St Pancras. Various bus routes are also conveniently found on the parallel streets of Barnsbury Road and Liverpool Road.
Short-term tenants and permanent residents alike enjoy the myriad of pubs, bars and restaurants found in the immediate vicinity. Cosy up in front of the open log fire at The Crown Pub, or enjoy some live music or comedy at The Islington Pub, both of which are located on either end of the street. An array of big restaurant chains, retail stores and well-known supermarkets such as Waitrose and Sainsbury’s are only a stone’s throw away at the N1 Shopping centre.
The convenience coupled with classic charm make Cloudesley Road an ideal location for young professionals or families to make their home. Being nestled amongst some of Islington’s finest green spaces and parks, whilst having the City and the increasingly popular Upper Street right on your doorstep, make this beautiful residential area of the borough a fantastic place to live.
