Laycock Street overlooks the wonderful green space of Laycock Street Open Space and is moments from Highbury & Islington station. The properties here are mainly stylish new developments, although there are a few classic red brick mansion blocks that line the street. These properties still boast beautiful bay windows, fancy brickwork and terracotta details. It is mainly flats and apartments that are available to buy and rent here rather than houses.
Parking here between 8:30am and 18:30pm Monday to Friday and 8:30am to 13:30pm on Saturday is for resident permit holders only. Permits can be obtained from the local council, which is located just behind the road on Upper Street. As this is close to the stadium of Arsenal Football Club, additional restrictions apply on match days, which are typically every two weeks. Highbury & Islington station is a minute walk away providing quick and easy access on the Victoria line.
This part of Islington is full of young professionals, couples and families alike, making it a friendly neighbourhood to live in. There is a relaxed vibe at the Library pub which is at the end of the street, so enjoying a cold beverage after a hard day’s work doesn’t mean walking for miles. For families, Laycock Primary School is situated on the street and there’s a small play park and green space opposite. It’s worth noting that this is a no-through road, meaning traffic does not regularly pass through.
Laycock Street is ideally positioned to benefit from all that Islington has to offer. It is situated off Upper Street where you can enjoy fine cuisine and hours of evening entertainment, or even relax and sip on a hot cup of coffee in one of the many boutique cafés. It has all the necessary facilities on its doorstep, with transport links at the Tube station or bus routes that operate through the area, and local supermarkets a short walk away.
