To live on Highbury Hill in Islington is the dream.  Number 30, Highbury Hill to be precise.  
Every time I walk past I gaze longingly up the immaculate paved driveway to the impressive front door and wonder what it would be like to live in such grandeur.  Number 30 is, in my mind, the perfect London pad.  
Spread over three floors this is a fine example of a mid-Victorian property.  It has the high ceilings and period features one would expect and has been restored to the highest quality by the current owners.  However, given its status as one of the most significant houses in Highbury, it retains an air of understated elegance.

And now this 7 bedroom, 3 bathroom gem is for sale.  Wanna have a nose round? Of course you do!

The 21'x15' drawing room, below, is (like the rest of the house) tastefully decorated in muted tones and is light and airy.  I just love the huge windows and marble fireplace.
The dining room sits at the front of the property and can comfortably house a table for 10 or even 12.  

In the family-sized kitchen black granite worktops complement the simple shaker-style units and an aga fills the fireplace.  The modest island unit doesn't overwhelm the space, giving plenty of room for manoeuvre.

The lower ground floor hosts a gym/recreation room and storage room that would no doubt swallow my flat whole.
The beautifully landscaped garden sits beyond a sunny terrace that's perfect for entertaining.

Given its grand proportions there is nothing showy or flash about this property - I like that  the owners have maintained a certain level of class.  
There is very little I would change in this house, which is probably just as well because I wouldn't have much left over after paying the £6.75m price tag!

Can anyone lend me £6,749,000??

30 Highbury Hill is for sale through Savills
