Hip to Gable conversions are popular among Islington homeowners with semi-detached or detached properties, end of terraces, and bungalows. The existing sloping roof is turned into a flat gable to increase available space. Depending on various factors, a hip to gable extension may or may not require planning permission. We can help you with this and apply on your behalf.
Dormer loft conversions are the most common type requested by Islington residents. With a dormer conversion we extend the existing roof vertically to create extra floor space and headroom. To achieve this, it is important that at least half of the current floor space has a ceiling height of at least two metres or higher. Dormers usually do not require planning permission.
A Velux, or roof light loft conversion in Islington is the most simple and economical type available. With a Velux, the roof remains unchanged, other than the installation of attractive flush Velux windows to give plenty of natural light. Typically, a Velux attic conversion does not need planning permission as the roof structure remains unchanged. This is the perfect solution if you want minimal outlay and disruption.
With its idyllic setting and row upon row of charming Victorian homes, Islington’s waterside location makes it one of the capital’s most desirable areas in which to work rest and play.
Situated in Greater London, Islington is most popular with families looking to take advantage of its highly accommodating location. Offering a host of high achieving schools, prestigious restaurants, and bespoke shops, this is an area that has maintained its traditional heritage and local, community feel.
Bringing together both new and old properties, Islington’s attractive location features large family homes, Victorian period terraced houses, new build apartments overlooking Regent’s canal, and even warehouse conversions.
When it comes to things to do in Islington, the area is not short of exciting places to visit, both day and night. From shopping and eating out, to taking advantage of the area’s host of green open spaces, Islington is a constant, lively hub of activity.
For lovers of theatre, Islington is also home to the Almeida Theatre and the Little Angel Theatre, which both regularly host exciting programmes of shows that are suitable for both adults and children.
With such a wide variety of things to do and see, it’s unsurprising that so many families have planted firm roots in the area. However, as families begin to expand, it’s often the case that many homes are not able to accommodate the demands of the growing family.
