Properties along Islington Park Street are generally flats that have been converted from Georgian houses, but they are pleasantly maintained and many still retain their original features. In addition to the properties along the road there are a number of tucked-away, gated mews developments, which tend be occupied by owners rather than tenants. At the end of the street there is the famous grade II listed Hope and Anchor pub, where several notable movements within the music industry developed.
There is no parking along the road, although a handful of houses have managed to keep their private off-street spaces. Residents can obtain a permit for the side streets, although the majority of people who live here do so because of the excellent public transport links. Highbury & Islington Tube station is a 2 minute walk away, Angel tube station is an 8 minute walk, and London buses operate regular routes through the area.
The diverse culture, entertainment and social delights on offer along the nearby streets attract young professionals and couples, and the proximity to both London Metropolitan University and City University mean this is a popular location for students too. The area also works well for families with five primary schools close by. The convenience of having everything nearby on foot mean that those looking to rent or buy a property here tend to stay put for the long-term.
The road is set just off the vibrant Upper Street, which homes a wonderful selection of bars, restaurants and local supermarkets. Whether you are looking to take a quiet stroll along the canal, lose yourself in a book whilst enjoying a macchiato, or a fun-fuelled evening of fine dining and good wine, the area surrounding Islington Park Street has plenty to suit your needs. A convenient location amongst a busy neighbourhood, there is no denying the popularity of this area.
