A residential road extremely close to Essex Road Overground station, Rotherfield Street is made up of several styles of accommodation. Along the street you will find classic period conversions, many of which retain their original features, panelled doors and sash windows. You will also find solid purpose-built developments, which have been finished to an excellent standard. The sporadically planted trees and the huge open green space at Rosemary Gardens make this a delightful little street in the heart of Islington.
There is a mix of permit holder only and short stay pay and display along the street. Those who often have guests over will be pleased to know that the short stay is up to four hours, rather than the more common two hour maximum stay. Permits can be obtained by residents from the council on Upper Street. Most residents here use Essex Road station which provides quick links to Farringdon and the City, though Angel Tube station provides access to the London Underground and is only a 15 minute walk away.
Situated in the residential area of De Beauvoir, there is no shortage of nearby amenities, with local supermarkets, restaurants and bars all within walking distance. A quick stroll to the end of the street will let you escape to the tranquil green space of Rosemary Gardens, the largest open space in the immediate area. Here you will find locals having a game of tennis, messing around with a football or just generally relaxing whilst reading a book.
Access to bus networks and National Rail, along with quick access to the Victoria line at Highbury and Islington and the Northern Line at Angel Tube station make this a great and convenient location to be based. The social vibe along Upper Street combined with the relaxed feel of the residential area make this an ideal place for professional sharers and students alike.
