Story of the Home
Islington is renowned for its charming Georgian townhouses. This Grade II listed home is a classic example of the architecture of this period.
Steeped in history and unique in character, the property has been owned by only three families in over 230 years and requires modernisation. The house retains many of its original Georgian features including marble fireplace surrounds, solid panel window shutters and restored ceiling cornicing. One of its most impressive features is a grand 70-step spiral staircase.
Duncan Terrace is named after Viscount Duncan of Camperdown, who was awarded the title following a famous naval victory over the Dutch in Camperdown in 1797. The first owner, Nathaniel Thompson, a wealthy stockbroker purchased the house in 1761, for 26 shillings and fourpence, £1.32 in today’s money!
Located within the Colebrooke Row and Duncan Terrace conservation area, and set back from the main road, it is incredibly quiet. Set over five floors, there are two reception rooms with high ceilings, five generous double bedrooms, three bathrooms, a large kitchen, guest cloak room, and private gardens.
Duncan Terrace is a few minutes from Camden Passage and Upper Street.
The area is famous for its antiques shops, markets, endless restaurants, bars, and cafes. Some of our favourites are Frederick’s on Islington High Street, Restaurant 12:51 on Upper Street, and Brother Marcus on Camden Passage.
Angel Underground Station is approximately 5 minutes’ walk, with direct access to the Northern Line.
