If Islington were a town all on is its own, it might just be urban perfection. You’ve got Upper Street – a resplendent artery that punches its way through the borough, lined with neighbourhood restaurants, warmly lit pubs, a thoroughly swish independent cinema, and countless chichi stores. Regents Canal is steps away, snaking past immaculate gardens with tranquil pockets for pop-up restaurants and waterside hangouts. And have you seen Islington’s architectural landscape? There are some real diamonds, from its Georgian terraces peppered around garden squares, to brand spanking new pads with all the frills.

What’s a typical day like in Islington?

Grab an inventive brunch or impossibly pretty pastries before sauntering around the shops for a few hours, picking up curios or designer garb. Grab your bike and wheel it on down to the canal, pushing past walkers and joggers, before a coffee refuel. As the afternoon draws on, pull up a pew in one of its boozers, where out-there cocktails are mixed up to a lively soundtrack amid the glow of candles; breeze into one of its convivial restaurants, and then take a seat in its legendary Almeida Theatre.

When you do want to dip out of the borough, getting around is seriously easy. You’re in Zone 1: mere moments from Angel’s Northern line services, the City’s in walking distance and the Overground and the Victoria Line can be picked up from Highbury & Islington rail station. Also on the horizon is a new station at Farringdon for Thameslink and Crossrail for direct trains to Heathrow, Luton and Gatwick airports, and other major London stations.

Islington’s got real character and it’s a looker, so you’re not alone in wanting a piece of the action. The good news? First-time buyers have every chance of hopping onto the property ladder with shared ownership: you don’t need a huge deposit and you just need to be earning less than £90,000. And there are some fantastic properties for sale in Islington. There’s the new The City Angel – a smart series of flats on the bustling City Road, that connects Angel with the tech hubbub of Old Street. All 70 of the flats are available through shared ownership – and they’re a step above your off-the-peg modern apartments, all large airy windows, sleek kitchens, and balconies opening to city views. A development that’s been stirring excitement amongst wannabe homeowners is Packington Square – an all-new residential quarter that’s joined the ranks as one of the area’s most desirable places to live. Live here and you’ll be beside the leafy and tranquil Regents Canal, with Shoreditch and the City around the corner. Interiors are modern and elegant; and large balconies look out to the tantalisingly chilled garden square.
