Whether you’re looking for a one, two or three bedroom home; you’ll find the right match for you at Patchworks. Welcoming hallways with dusky walnut Amtico flooring lead through to open plan living, dining and kitchen areas, fitted with all the appliances you need to try out that new gourmet recipe to share with your friends. Spacious master bedrooms are a haven to unwind, with black-out blinds and cosy carpets to keep it snug. There’s ample storage throughout and the peace of mind that comes with a 12-year NHBC warranty.
A limited collection of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom Shared Ownership apartments set in the vibrant Finsbury Park. Our homes at Patchworks offer something for everyone, with a striking specification including a fully integrated Zanussi kitchen and large windows bringing an abundance of natural light into every apartment. All apartments benefit from outdoor space, whether it be their own private balconies or the communal terrace garden overlooking the quieter streets of Islington. These homes boast fantastic travel links being in Zone 2 and just a short stroll away from both Finsbury Park and Arsenal Stations with connections all across the City. Not forgetting the open spaces of Finsbury Park, trendy Upper Street and Camden Town just moments away, everything you need is right on your doorstep.
Fitness fanatics are living in the right place. Finsbury Park houses tennis and basketball courts, a skatepark, athletics track and a brand-new outdoor gym. Flex your muscles at the Castle Climbing Centre, one of the premier centres in Europe with over 5 floors of fun- and growing! Or join one of the ever popular Saturday parkruns to get fit and meet your neighbours at the same time. Pints afterwards are optional. If pumping iron’s your thing, you can join the local branch of 24-hour PureGym, but you’ll probably gravitate towards the frankly epic Sobell Leisure Centre just five minutes away, with everything from trampolining to boxing, soft play to squash, and ice skating to saunas.
Over in the reopened Woodberry Wetlands, recharge amongst the tranquillity and beauty of nature in the heart of urban London - kids will adore the wildlife weekends. But you can’t call yourself a proper local without at least one trip to Rowans Tenpin Bowl: it’s not where you’d go for a quiet game but it’s retro and best of all it’s round the clock!
Uber Eats is uber-convenient, but sometimes you can’t beat a proper bricks-and-mortar dining experience. With so many cultures and flavours in the neighbourhood, you can eat somewhere different every night of the month. But you might want to get to know some local faves.
Seven Sisters Road is lined with eateries and the greatest hits include lively Greek joint Apollo, innovative Italian Girasole and incredibly popular Korean restaurant Dotori. Nag’s Head Market has recently been revamped with a raft of global street food vendors serving
late – including some awesomely authentic Japanese options, while The Junction Market nearby is a food hall teeming with traders.
With a host of characterful pubs and bars, you don’t need to venture for a big night out. Lined with bric-a-brac and with a huge maze of a beer garden, the Faltering Fullback is a local quirky legend. There’s the light and airy White Lion, charming Owl & Hitchhiker and the cosy Swimmer at the Grafton Arms. If you’re after something a bit more refined, Oak Wine Store and Bar is a local hidden gem, selling 180 wines. Or, a ten-minute meander away, Highbury Library is a chilled local hangout with a garden, vinyl library and a range of cocktails.
Nearby get a pizza the action at Osteria Tufo, stay up pasta your bedtime at Alcedo or bag some of the best bagels and challah in town at The Happening Bagel Bakery. Provisions on Holloway Road is a wonderful wine and cheese emporium great for dates, while a late-night (or earlier) kebab is always on hand from one of the many local grill houses. We love E. Mono’s juicy wraps and Baban’s pillow-soft naan
It’s all about connections round here – you’re so well placed to get pretty much anywhere. Upper Street in Islington is a 25-minute walk or one tube stop away: an upmarket mile-long stretch of chic boutiques, tempting homewares, ever-evolving eateries and bustling bars for late nights out. Slightly further east, picturesque Stoke Newington was a pocket of alternative living long before the term hipster was even coined. Today it retains its laidback village feel with organic shops, traditional pubs and ethnic restaurants rubbing up against newer children’s clothes boutiques, cupcakes and craft ales. There’s leafy Clissold Park and the fascinating Islington Museum. Achingly hip Dalston and chilled London Fields with its Lido are just a little further.
Heading north, Crouch End is an established community with an old-fashioned high street that feels like a little market town. There are butchers, bakers, bookshops and baby shops – and it’s a hub of cultural events, from its cosy cinema to the art deco former town hall, reopening soon as an arts centre. By contrast, Green Lanes leading north from Manor House towards Turnpike Lane is a unique thoroughfare lined with some of the best Kurdish fruit and veg shops, bakeries and barbers.
Directly west, a short bike ride will take you to Parliament Hill and the magical delights of Hampstead Heath in a jiffy and we mustn’t forget Camden Town: you have to do the market at least once, so embrace it. The glory days of cheap vintage may be past but there
are still bargains to be found and quirky shops at every turn.
