This home in Highbury emanates elegance. Entering on the lower-ground floor, you’ll come first to an open-plan living area. A Roy Liechtenstein print hangs above an ornamental fireplace in the smartly furnished sitting area. Further on, there’s the contemporary kitchen, beyond which there’s a dining area with a table for eight. From there, wall-wide windows open into the landscaped garden.
Above that, on the ground floor, is another sitting room – a parquet-floored, ornate-ceilinged place with a pair of brocade sofas at one end, and a book-lined TV snug at the other. Next up there’s a bathroom, then the ensuite master bedroom above that (blue-painted, its four-poster surrounded by accomplished modern artworks) and a third bedroom with a Murphy bed. Ascending again, you’ll find a bathroom and two more bedrooms – all made distinctive by pops of rich colour. And then lastly, as well as a final bathroom, there’s one more bedroom, with its own collection of exotic accessories lining the shelves.
