"Possible inspiration for Dickens' Lady Havisham, Hatton Place resident Lady Lewson despite owning a large rambling house, occupied just one room and told her servants never to move anything. Obsessed with catching a cold, she ordered that none of the windows should ever be washed fearing that they would break and let in germs!"

This inspiring mosaic in Angel reminds me every day to do what I love!

Within touching distance of the West End, yet retaining a vibrant neighbourhood feel, Islington is a smart choice for buyers and tenants.

The street art on this wall is constantly changing, which makes for a beautiful and rousing walk to work every morning. Expect the unexpected on Great Eastern Street!
