Properties to rent and for sale on Matilda Street, Islington

A favourite for families and long-term owner occupiers, Matilda Street is located in the desirable Barnsbury conservation area of Islington.

The street takes its name from the Thornhill family, as do many of the surrounding roads. The Thornhill’s owned much of the land that today makes up Barnsbury, and if you look closely you will notice echoes of the original layout. The courtyard of Bromwell Mews, a new development off the street, is built on the site of an old saw mill. Thornhill Gardens, which sits at the top of Matilda Street, was donated to the public by Captain Thornhill in 1946.

The buildings here are of classical Georgian design, symmetrical terraced houses with three storeys. You will notice the panelled front doors, sash windows and parapet roofing which became typical of the era. The luscious green trees that line the street add to the tranquil feeling of the street.

This is an enviable location for local amenities. Caledonian Road, known affectionately by locals as “Cally Road” is moments away. Here you will find family run food markets with colourful displays of exotic fruit and veg. There’s a selection of bars and restaurants, including the well-reviewed Back Stage Pizzeria which serves traditional stone baked pizzas with authentic Italian ingredients. St. Andrew’s Church of England Primary School is also situated here, another reason for the high number of young families that live here.

Matilda Street is also ideally placed for transport links across the capital. King’s Cross and St. Pancras stations are nearby, which provide access to a number of London Underground lines, as well as National and International Rail Services. Buses operate regularly, providing direct services to Camden, Holborn and the City. Parking permits are available.

Matilda Street is a location rich in history, ripe with period architecture and great transport connections, so it’s no wonder why people who live on Matilda Street tend to stay for the long-term.
