Lofting Road is situated moments from Highbury & Islington station. Many of the properties along the road are houses which have been converted into a series of one, two and three bedroom flats. There is a high number of rented properties along the street, although the close proximity to schools and amenities mean that owner occupiers are also drawn to the properties. The distinct mix of Victorian and Georgian era buildings, whether it is the stand out terracotta brickwork or beautiful bay windows add to the appearance of the road.
A good practical location for transport, Lofting Road is a short 3 minute walk away from Highbury & Islington Tube station where you can access the Victoria line on the London Underground or the London Overground Services to West London and the City. There are three small allocated bays for non-resident parking, but these are pay and display with a maximum stay of two hours. Residents can obtain a parking permit from the council. The proximity to London bus routes and transport network mean many of the residents do not own cars.
Being close to several schools makes this a good option for those who have families, and Thornhill Primary School is situated on the road itself. The area is also full of young professionals and couples, making this a good neighbourhood with a nice mix of people. London Metropolitan University is not too far away, meaning some students take up occupation nearby, but this only adds to the great diversity in the area, and is part down to why so many people choose to live is this centrally located part of Islington.
Lofting Road is ideally located just a 2 minute walk from Upper Street to the east, and a similar distance to Caledonian Road in the west, providing residents with more options than you could wish for when it comes to selecting fine-dining, a quick sandwich, a quiet coffee or an afternoon glass of wine with some friends, and a short stroll will bring you to one of the several supermarkets in the area.
