London’s Islington Square Reveals Its Secret Selection of Luxury Homes

16.01.17

Fashionable new spacious maisonettes in former Edwardian sorting office launched for stylish Islington families.

Sager Group, in conjunction with joint venture partner Cain Hoy, is pleased to announce the launch of a collection of eight family maisonettes in the extraordinary Edwardian Warehouse building, now known as 8 Esther Anne Place, part of the award-winning Islington Square development. Designed by architects CZWG with interior design and specification by Wish London, the residences are over two levels, with each maisonette enjoying three bedrooms, an internal courtyard and garden. The maisonettes are to be launched at an exclusive sales event at the new Islington Square marketing suite, with prices starting from £2.45m.

There are eight maisonettes in total, between 1,800 sq. ft. and 2,900 sq. ft. in size, of which seven of the apartments feature a layout with bedrooms and the entrance on the upper level, and the main living space and master suite on the lower level. This design has been chosen so that each apartment benefits from plenty of outdoor space and large open-plan social living areas. The eighth maisonette, which is the largest at 2,900 sq. ft., hosts a layout with the main living space (and guest bedroom) on the upper level, and two bedroom suites occupying the lower level.

Bespoke-design Italian kitchens, feature Corian white workshops, an oak veneer breakfast table with seating for four, and Carrara Marble splash back wall along with built-in ‘A-grade’ appliances. An eight-seater dining table sits parallel to the kitchen with a reclaimed Barnstock brick tiled wall at the head of it.

Developed by Sager Group in conjunction with Cain Hoy, Islington Square is designed by award winning architect Piers Gough of CZWG Architects and combines restored Edwardian buildings and new build elements designed around a central pedestrianised boulevard, nestled behind the facades of Upper Street. The grand Edwardian former sorting office and related buildings that form the former North London Mail Centre, were originally built in 1904-1906 and designed by architect Jasper Wager. The complex was responsible for sorting and delivering hundreds of thousands of letters and parcels across Inner London.

Facing the historic sorting office are the new build elements of the scheme including the striking curved building at 11 Esther Anne Place, which is destined to be one of Islington’s most iconic buildings, and 17 Esther Anne Place, which retains the redbrick façade of the sorting office at lower levels along with modern distinctive zinc clad upper floors.

For those wanting to travel further afield, Islington Square is not far from Kings Cross International Station providing easy access to continental European destinations, and London’s airports.

Maisonettes are for sale with Beauchamp Estates, Knight Frank and Savills, with prices starting from £2.45m (£2,450,000) for the maisonettes and £715,000 for other apartments.
