A message from the current owner
Living in handy and central De Beauvoir is great. Markets, restaurants and places to go out on your doorstep, this flat has convenience but in a quiet cul-de-sac traffic-free location. Cycle route 1 in-front of the flat goes north to Stokey/Dalston and south to the City, and the towpath goes east to Broadway Market and west to Islington. The flat overlooks canal boats chugging by and a well-maintained park space with dog walkers, squirrels, foxes, pigeons, geese and swans. Morning sunrises light up the flat, midday sunlight is dappled by mature trees and the sun sets between modernist De Beauvoir towers. The flat has the best value double aspect layout and space in a frequently filmed and popular setting. There's loads of storage and a kitchen overlooking your parking space. With plenty of scope to improve and to get involved with De Beauvoir too. I fell in love with this flat's layout, location and setting at first sight and gladly stayed 17 years because of its place and space.
