An excellent estate in a quite area not far from major transport links and amenities.

The estate is a mixture of new build and redevelopent of Victorian school buildings. The new and the old blend very well due to the choice of materials, and architectural design. The estate is managed quite professionally, and the common areas are kept in immaculate conditions.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Very near Highbury & Islington station and Upper Street, with all their shops and restaurants, yet on a one-way street (on the side where my property is situated) and away from traffic, which ensures quiteness.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Gates to the Estate are locked at night, which is good for security, but they cannot be opened from the properties, so one has to rely on concienrge or go out and open them directly.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

I would not change anything about my property, other than the carpet!

Village-feel living in the city.

Drummond Way (which is what Barnsbury Place was re-named when it was completed) is a particularly fantastic location. It’s very close to the tube, London Overground (Caledonian Road & Barnsbury is just a 5 min walk and links up to many places) and several bus routes.
Despite the quiet location it’s just a short walk to lots of shops, bars and restaurants in Upper Street.

The development itself is lovely. Plenty of open space and greenery. It feels very secure. Having a 24 hour concierge is so helpful.

The only issue we have had with Mount Anvil is that they refused to help out with queries we had about the flat after we’d bought it. When you spend the best part of a million quid on somewhere that they built you’d hope they’d show a bit more interest…!

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Barnsbury is a great area to live in. It has a community (almost village) feel with leafy roads and several parks. There are some great local businesses, and it has two great pubs (with beer gardens) that are usually voted as among the top 10 pubs in London.

Barnsbury feels almost like a secret – it’s tucked away but is still really close to the hubbub of Islington.

Amazing service

Review Date Oct 2019

I think Barnsbury Place is very beautiful, especially when compared to other developments in the area. It has a charm and a real communal atmosphere, unlike many modern developments that lack character, The main advantage of this place is the 24 hour concierge service. The team are wonderful and very helpful with any queries. The management team are also great. They are always pretty quick to respond. The development has green areas and the beautiful water fountain that looks stunning when lit up at night.
For being in central London, the development is particularly quiet and serene.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Barnsbury is the conservation area of Islington, so it is particularly green and leafy. When considering this is in Zone 1, its very impressive.
I can do all of my shopping around here, there are supermarkets, high street shops and independent retailers. I feel very secure here. However, in my opinion, it doesn’t always gel well to have social housing within developments such as these.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The management and sales team were very clear about how everything would be before I moved here.

What is the best feature of your home:

My flat is very spacious and I love how much natural light it has.
