1 Bedroom Flat (Now Let)
Carronade Court, Eden Grove, London, N7 8EP
The apartment represents convenient urban living at its best. It has been newly renovated and refurbished to a very high standard: double bedroom with queen size bed, wood floors throughout, fully-equipped kitchen with all the usual built-in appliances (gas hob, oven, dishwasher, fridge, freezer); 3 piece bathroom; designer furniture, balcony, washer-dryer, and it is very well-insulated. The pictures say it better than words.
The apartment is located in a pleasant cul-de-sac, 200m from a Piccadilly line tube station in a new and stylish complex with some convenient amenities: onsite gym, supermarket (Tescos, open 7am-11pm), 24 hr concierge, and elevators (we're on the second floor). The complex also has some beautiful landscaped water gardens.
The transportation links are very good. The subway/tube (in Zone 2) is direct to (i) Kings Cross (British Library and Eurostar to Paris) - 6 mins; Holborn/Covent Garden/Leicester Sq - 10-13mins; Heathrow airport - 60 mins. There is also the overground train station, Highbury & Islington, a 12 minute walk away.
For foodies, Islington Upper street is a 15 minute walk and lined with restaurants to satisfy most taste-buds, as well as some swank bars and cafes for the hip. Highbury fields is a 10 minute walk and is a beautiful expanse of green which we like to jog around.
Shopping is also excellent. In addition to the onsite Tesco, there is also both a full-size Waitrose and a full-size Morrissons supermarket less than 5 minutes walk away, located within the Nag's Head Shopping Centre.
The property is ideal for both young professionals and young families - there is an excellent daycare within the complex grounds.
