Splashes of colour and smart furnishings mean despite being only 20 minutes from Oxford Street, this classic home feels like an oasis on Highbury Fields. First you'll come to the sitting room a green-and-white-panelled room that's traditionally decorated (with adventurous artworks) and leads into the similarly decorated third sitting room. Another door here takes you out to the garden, where there's space to dine. Then downstairs there's the dining room, with its polished wooden table for nine, and the welcoming kitchen.
Heading upstairs, you'll come to a yellow-painted bedroom and the second sitting room. This room is picture-lined, and has several brightly upholstered seats and a colourful rug. Right above it is the restful master bedroom with a sleigh king-size bed, characterful antique furnishings and an ensuite bathroom. And then it's up again for the final two bedrooms (simpler, and distinctively furnished) and a smart little bathroom.
