St Peters Street is a residential road just off Islington Green, lined with beautiful Georgian terraces which are typically characterised by their sash windows and panelled front doors. Many of the houses along this street have managed to avoid conversion into flats, meaning most residents are owner-occupiers in 3 / 4 bedroom properties. Leafy green trees are placed periodically along the road adding to a peaceful villagey feel, whilst being moments from Islington’s main high street.
Parking is mainly for permit holders only, which residents can obtain through the local council. Some pay and display parking can be found in pockets on the street, but the short stay period generally puts commuters off parking here. In terms of public transport, Angel tube station (Northern Line) is a convenient, approximate 3 minute walk away.
The proximity to well-established schools and academies is a key factor which has contributed to this area's extreme popularity amongst couples and young families. People who rent and buy properties tend to make a home for themselves for a long period of time, drawn to a central location that is hidden away from some of the more lively parts, but still within a quick stroll should they fancy being adventurous.
Britain’s first organic pub, the Duke of Cambridge, is on the corner of St Peter’s Street and Danbury Street, attracting both locals and tourists who have come to see what the fuss is about. Islington Green is located at the end of the road where you will often find markets, arts and craft fairs or the local performing arts students presenting their work. Upper Street is lined with bars, retail units and restaurants and there are several supermarkets within the immediate area.
