Properties to rent and for sale on Upper Street, Islington

Upper Street is the central high street for Islington. The majority of the properties here are lovely flats above commercial units which have been converted to an excellent standard from their original terraces. The street is characterised by the combination of Edwardian, Georgian and Victorian architecture, with converted warehouses such as the newly developed Islington Square bringing in a high level of investment buyers and owner-occupiers alike. The well-presented shop fronts and inviting coffee shops make for a picturesque stroll down this ever popular street.

Sandwiched between two tube stations, Highbury & Islington is to the North and Angel is to the south, providing commuters with easy access across London via the Northern and the Piccadilly lines. The road carries the A1 and so there is no parking for residents, however you can usually obtain an on street parking permit for one of the many side roads. Four separate bus routes pass through the street every few minutes offering links to the City and further south towards Battersea.

There is a great mix of people who live here making this an extremely welcoming area. Many young professionals meet for dinner and drinks throughout the week, and students from the nearby City University choose the location for its positive vibe. The William Tyndale primary school also makes this a good option for families. Usually people end up staying in the area for the long term having fallen in love with all that Islington has to offer.

Nicknamed ‘Supper Street’, there is a diverse range of restaurants, bars and cafes meaning there really is something for everyone. Many consider Upper Street to rival anywhere outside of the West End for food options. Never far from a small convenience store or a large supermarket, excellent transport links, a glass of wine or a freshly made baguette, this really is one of those rare places that has it all.
