De Barowe Mews, London N5
Offers In Excess Of £1,350,000
FULL DESCRIPTION Enjoying a fabulous situation a few moments' walk from the Clocktower, this charming contemporary coach house is offered for sale with no onward chain. This house and its mirror image join over the archway leading through to De Barowe Mews; an exclusive gated enclave in the heart of Highbury.The front door is sheltered under the arch, and opens into a generous entrance hallway with cloakroom, and the two main reception rooms to either side. This unusual layout offers a far more accommodating welcome than other houses locally. To the front of the property is a reception room the current owners use as a dining room; one of the beauties of the townhouse is that the accommodation is very flexible, this could easily be used as the sole reception room giving the upstairs lounge over to other usage.The rear of the house houses the kitchen diner on the ground floor, with fully fitted recently installed high spec kitchen, and bi-folding doors out to the rear garden. A side gate offers access to private parking behind for one vehicle. The first floor is currently configured as master bedroom and sitting room with bathrooms; and at the top a further three rooms, bathroom and roof terrace.As well as the courtyard garden, a south facing roof terrace enjoys views towards the City and over adjacent Highbury Fields. During their tenure, the owners have spent significant sums on this house, lavishing engineered oak flooring throughout, a state of the art security system, underfloor heating and new hot water system to create a truly enviable city dwelling. SITUATION de Barowe Mews is halfway down Leigh Road, which runs West directly from the top of Highbury Hill. Within a few minutes' walk are Highbury Fields with tennis courts, swimming pool and green open space. Just at the top of the road, Highbury Barn boasts perennial favourites Godfreys Butchers, La Fromagerie, Bournes Fishmongers and Da Marios deli as well as several convenience stores.Highbury & Islington station offers Victoria and Overground lines with swift access to the City via Shoreditch High Street station. Piccadilly Line is also within walking distance. Numerous eateries can be found locally with Zia Lucia, Farang and Westerns Laundry all a walk away, two branches of Waitrose as well as a nearby Tesco Express are handy for the weekly shop INSIDER'S GUIDE - THE OWNER'S THOUGHTS The best thing about De Barowe Mews is that whilst the shops of Highbury Barn and the green space of Highbury Fields are on our doorstep, living here is incredibly tranquil and peaceful. The property sits in a secure gated Mews with very convenient off-street parking adjacent to the house. Bi-folding doors connect a thoughtfully designed kitchen with the rear, secluded patio where we love to eat outside in Spring and Summer. The dining room is spacious enough for a marble table that can extend to accommodate 12 guests (as we do for Xmas). The master bedroom and living rooms are really generous spaces: there's room for a super king-sized bed, cot and custom wardrobe in the former and a huge family sofa and extra-large OLED TV in the latter. On the top floor are two bedrooms with extremely high ceilings and abundant natural light, one of which has been converted to a brilliant home office that has seen almost constant use in the past 18 months. Also on this floor is a very handy utility room with excellent eaves storage and my favourite part of the house, a superb, decked roof terrace with glass panels that we use daily for both fitness and relaxation. We're only selling because with 2 young children and a 3rd quite likely, we need somewhere slightly bigger now. We like the area so much, though, that we're moving just a couple of minutes down the road.
