Allsop to auction three high spec new townhouses in sought-after Islington

Allsop has been instructed on the sale of three new-build townhouses at Notting Hill Sales’ Canonbury Cross development in Islington, N1. The three-bedroom properties – each with a guide price of £1.4m+ – will be offered for sale at Allsop’s next residential auction on 30 March at The Cumberland Hotel in London.

Listed as lots 55-57, the mid-terrace townhouses on Edward’s Cottages and Compton Avenue range from 1,767 to 1,866 sq ft. Inspired by the surrounding architecture, the townhouses combine classic design, such as traditional yellow brick facades, with contemporary details and interiors.

The properties are highly specified throughout, including underfloor heating, integrated Miele appliances and Villeroy & Boch bathroom suites. The open-plan living areas and large windows create spacious homes full of natural light and each townhouse boasts a private terrace and roof terrace, as well as access to the landscaped communal courtyards.

Canonbury Cross is located moments away from the heart of Islington, just north of Canonbury Square Within walking distance of popular Upper Street, residents will benefit from a host of culinary and cultural amenities, including popular restaurants, bars and artisan bakeries, fashion and furniture boutiques, theatres and music venues. Complementing the rich cultural life of the area is a range of public parks and gardens, from the open spaces of Highbury Fields to the tranquillity of Canonbury Gardens.

The area is extremely well connected, with Highbury & Islington station a short walk away. Victoria Line services connect to key transport hubs, such as King’s Cross Station, and the Overground offers swift access to a host of destinations, from shopping at Westfield Stratford City to the green spaces of Hampstead.

Gary Murphy, Partner at Allsop, commented: “These smart townhouses enjoy a great location and represent exceptional value for money at the guide prices of £1.4m+. They have recently been marketed at much higher figures of around £1.8m a piece. Our clients are keen to encourage interest and achieve sales, hence this significant reduction.”
