Description

An attractive and spacious (2849 sq. ft) three-window-wide Grade II listed Georgian property which is positioned on the raised pavement while being set back from the road. This charming property consists of five storeys with commanding views of London to the east. It was built in the late 18th century (circa 1793) with much character and good natural light. The property has a central turning staircase with a stunning drop and atrium light. The delightful sash windows to the front have working shutters and exposed wood flooring. The main living room has hardwood flooring and the most enchanting period fireplace with inset encased period scenes (in 40 years of agency, I don’t recall seeing these before). The property is currently arranged for five bedrooms and three receptions, with a large family bathroom on the second floor and further bathroom on the top floor and a shower on the lower ground floor. The rear garden is north-west facing and approx. 36'. This part of Islington offers some of the oldest Georgian buildings, steeped in wonderful family history and of immense charm and character. Former and current owners or occupiers can read like a who's-who. as the location has always been highly regarded and sought after for ease of access into the City with networked transport links very close by. The property enjoys a great presence on Duncan Terrace. The pressure for narrower houses was not present in this era; rooms enjoyed wider space and more generous living spaces whilst also enjoying good light. The central turning staircase is a fabulous architectural feature with a top skylight allowing natural light down to the lower ground floor. This staircase has the added quality of being part made of solid stone tread steps to the lower floor levels and absorbing foot traffic, an uncommon feature. With all substantial properties, the living space is flexible, but currently the configuration provides for five good bedrooms with three bathrooms and a large utility room. The first-floor front reception room is delightful with a fabulous fire setting with inset glass encased artwork depicting historic scenes. The floor is hardwood and the three (virtually floor to ceiling) sash windows with working shutters enable glorious light and good views. The entrance floor provides an elegant dining room and a mature fitted kitchen with knotted pine units, central bar, rugged cast iron range within the chimney breast and exposed wood floorboards. This property has only been owned by three families over the 230 years. The house is very liveable, but not of the latest styles, designs, or vogue. It does offer a great opportunity to adapt to one’s own taste and for the next family generation (or two) to enjoy. They certainly don’t build them like this anymore. Duncan Terrace is close to Angel Station and Upper Street is around the corner. Camden Passage Market is very close by, whilst the shopping facilities and restaurants are plentiful and wide ranging. Duncan Terrace is ideal for those wanting a refreshing walk or cycle into the City. King’s Cross station is one stop away. The low-traffic neighbourhoods have certainly made these specific roads and streets very quiet for vehicle traffic.
