Vantage Point is an award-winning Islington development aimed at renters looking for a premium furnished property that works around their lifestyle. Located directly above Archway tube station, Vantage Point comprises 118 purpose-built rental apartments with over 7,000 sq ft of common space for social and fitness activities.

The development - currently one of four Essential Living locations - includes an outstanding residents' team, available 24 hours a day. They are on hand to assist with anything that residents might need, as well as arranging regular social events for anyone living in the complex.

"Renters are increasingly looking for the convenience of having all modern-day facilities in one place, without compromising on the social aspect”, comments Sarah Tonkinson, Director of Private Rental Sector at Foxtons. "At Vantage Point, all residents are treated like special guests. When the whole scheme is built for renting, with a view to accommodate every need of a tenant, it elevates the whole experience of renting to a whole new level."

The tower's spectacular penthouse lounge, dining room and terraces are communal areas offering outstanding social space with panoramic views over London. The double-height penthouse area can be hired for events by residents, and the in-house team also organises regular residents' events, such as Saturday breakfasts and Christmas dinners. Other impressive common areas include the terraces, complete with barbecue and pizza oven for outstanding open-air dining.

The communal spaces and activities available within Vantage Point are a major draw for this development. The prime spot atop the building has been transformed into a penthouse residents' lounge and dining room, while the communal library, meeting room and work space provide ideal areas for residents who work from home.

The 17th-floor gym and games room are also highly attractive features for tenants seeking a more sociable lifestyle around their home. Finally, the two spacious roof terraces offer perfect spaces for al fresco entertaining and socialising, with a barbecue and pizza oven providing the ideal culinary options for summer parties.

While many developers and landlords sell off the prime penthouse space at the top of their buildings, Essential Living has chosen a different, more egalitarian route. The top two floors of the Vantage Point building are beautiful communal areas where residents can relax and meet up for drinks and dinners.

The dining room can be booked by residents for special occasions, and is also the venue for many of the residents team's social events throughout the year. For example, every Saturday a delicious breakfast is served, allowing residents to relax and meet the neighbours over a coffee and croissant.

Location: Archway, N19

Vantage Point on the corner of Highgate Hill

Vantage Point is located directly above Archway Underground station, on the corner of Highgate Hill in the heart of Islington. This stylish and sought-after borough offers a wealth of benefits. The boutiques, pubs and cafes of Crouch End, plus the Georgian grandeur of Highgate Village lie to the north, while Upper Street and Angel to the south provide a bewildering selection of restaurants, theatres and bars for the perfect evening out.

Vantage Point location and surrounding areas

Archway offers residents plenty of options for enjoying some revitalising green spaces. Elthorne, Whittington and Dartmouth Parks are all within 500m of the development, while to the north the Parkland Walk stretches for 4.5 miles along a disused railway line that once ran between Finsbury Park and Alexandra Palace. Highgate Cemetery is a Grade I-listed park, with historic funerary architecture and peaceful, leafy walkways. Hampstead Heath is only a short walk further west, while Highgate wood offers shady walks on sunny days.

A typical reception area at Vantage Point

Vantage Point offers studio, one-bed, two-bed and three-bed apartments, with each providing residents with outstanding accommodation space. Every carefully-designed home features luxurious fixtures and finishes, as well as a carefully-appointed range of furniture and accessories included to allow you to move straight in and make it your own.

Stylish, neutral bathrooms with high-tech Hansgrohe fittings

Another attractive feature of all flats with more than one bedroom is that each bedroom will be equally-sized. This allows for fairer sharing and a more even allocation of space. Underfloor heating, superfast broadband, maintenance included and longer 1-3 year tenancies also add to Vantage Point's appeal.

Generously-sized double bedrooms

“There is a range of kitchens, bathrooms, furniture and feature wall colours that guests can choose from, depending on the type and style of apartment they are looking for,” explains Sarah Tonkinson. Apartments start from £440pw - get in touch with our Crouch End team for the very latest properties available.

Pet-friendly floors

Furry friends are welcome at Vantage Point

Responding to the consistent demand for pet-friendly rental properties, Vantage Point originally appointed one floor for pet-owning renters. This has since been expanded to four floors, with a happy community of resident cats, dogs, hamsters and more. Residents who are less fond of animals can rest assured that all pets are vetted and approved as suitable by the residents' team, and are not allowed in communal areas.
