Residential Market


Built over 200 years ago in 1819, City Road Basin was a bustling destination surrounded by wharves for unloading the range of goods transported across the city by boat. Following an extensive period of regeneration, the surrounding area is once again establishing a thriving community, as a location to live, work and play. Providing buyers with the chance to spread their wings in one of Islington’s most exciting neighbourhoods, Peabody New Homes is preparing to launch the second phase of its City Angel development on the 9th of September.


Set at Berkeley’s iconic 250 City Road development, City Angel hosts a stylish collection of 100 studios and one-bedroom apartments available to purchase through the Shared Ownership scheme. Contemporary kitchens provide the dream setting for budding chefs to test their latest creations, featuring high-quality integrated appliances, composite stone worktops and high gloss handleless units. Inviting living areas are the ideal spot to unwind or host friends, whilst also allowing space to create a productive work-from-home space. Bathrooms feature large format Porcelanosa stone tiles to the walls and floors, white baths and chrome fittings, as well as over-bath clothes driers. Underfloor heating throughout ensures that rooms are kept toasty during the cooler months.


Complementing the local surrounding, buyers at City Angel can enjoy a moment of calm in a busy city, being surrounded by nature. From tree-lined parkland to intimate garden squares complete with decorative water features and wildflowers, there are plenty of shared spaces to explore without needing to leave home. Many apartments overlook the impressive Wi-Fi-enabled podium garden, offering green views and providing further space to relax and socialise. Each home also features private outdoor space, perfect for a morning coffee in the sunshine.

Terence O'Connor, Head of Sales and Marketing for City Angel comments:


 “City Angel is designed for those looking for balance in life. Boasting all the convenience of London living, City Road is in a thriving Zone 1 location just a stone’s throw from Tech City and Central London. For a breath of fresh air, City Angel forms part of Berkeley’s 250 City Road development meaning homes are part of a tranquil haven designed around 1.9 acres of green space. Providing the perfect setting for buyers looking to enjoy the best of both worlds, we expect that this next phase of homes at City Angel will prove to be incredibly popular and would urge interested buyers to register their details with us as soon as possible.”


Residents at City Angel can enjoy more than just a home with access to a variety of on-site amenities. For those looking to keep fit, the development features a fully-stocked gym, as well as a swimming pool and sauna. A residents lounge is the perfect spot to relax and socialise with neighbours. In addition to the amenities currently on-site, a business lounge, screening room and games & reading room are due to open in 2024, providing further space that buyers can enjoy without even needing to leave home. 


Angel has a vibrant social scene meaning buyers at City Angel can enjoy everything from vintage boutiques in Camden Passage to classic British pubs and artisanal cafes in Upper Street. For example, just a 13-minute walk away, The Old Red Lion Theatre Pub is one of the capital’s oldest pubs and features regular showcases of local productions. For a delicious treat, Buns from Home is also a 13-minute walk away and creates tantalising cinnamon buns and hand-rolled croissants. In addition to this, with Google constructing its new London headquarters, ‘Landscraper’, in Tech City, the area is set to welcome a new central plaza filled with shops, cafes, restaurants, and creative workspace.


For a breath of fresh air or a moment of tranquillity, City Road Basin on the Regent’s Canal is a 4-minute walk away. Extending east towards Victoria Park, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the Limehouse Basin, a winding towpath offers miles of waterside to explore. King Square Gardens can be reached in around 4-minutes and is designated as a Site of Local Importance to Nature Conservation. Providing further space to enjoy, Shoreditch Park is just a 16-minute walk away and covers an impressive 7.1 hectares and hosts a variety of sports pitches, an amphitheatre and public art installations.

From Angel, King’s Cross can be reached in just 2 minutes on the Northern line, whilst those looking to enjoy new high-speed connections on the Elizabeth Line can reach Farringdon in 4 minutes.
