If you are looking for a secluded apartment that has an ideal central location, then our newest instruction is one to view. Based on our doorstep here in London’s stylish Clerkenwell, this smart and remarkably spacious two-bedroom apartment with a south-facing balcony and stunning communal gardens offers a rare level of seclusion in the middle of the city below.
Ideally located for city professionals and their families, this apartment benefits from being a short walk from a number of transport links, a wide array of shops, some of London’s finest eateries (for which Exmouth Market is renowned) and varying entertainment options, not to mention schools for those who have children.
For those who need to commute, Clerkenwell has ideal transport links. There are a wide variety of train and bus services that are easily accessible and can connect one across the capital (or even to mainland Europe!) in minutes. Below we have listed some of the stations that are within a short walk of the property:
Farringdon – 8-minute walk (0.4 miles) – Overground services, Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan underground lines and soon to feature Crossrail services with direct connections to Heathrow Airport, Reading and Shenfield
Barbican – 16-minute walk (0.8 miles) – Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan underground lines
Russell Square – 18-minute walk (0.9 miles) – Piccadilly Line underground
King’s Cross – 25-minute walk (1.2 miles) – Overground services across the UK and Eurostar services to Paris, also Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, Northern, Picadilly and Victoria underground lines
Buses number 19 and 18 take you to Oxford Street, Victoria, Knightsbridge etc.
As you enter this second floor property either by lift or the stairs, a short corridor leads into the main living area. This large (6.93 X 4.67m) room is light and airy and benefits from natural light coming through the sizeable balcony doors. Neutrally decorated in light tones, the room offers several configuration options, including the current set-up of having a separate living and dining area. The newly carpeted living area also leads directly out to the balcony which is big enough to accommodate a compact patio set for those who like to dine and entertain outside during those warm summer evenings.
Just off the living area, is the separate, galley-style kitchen which offers a work area, plenty of storage space and room for several appliances. It is the ideal size for a practical family kitchen, and certainly bigger than what you would normally find in an open-plan setup.
The carpeted master bedroom features stylish uplights and incorporates all the room you need for a couple and their furniture, measuring 3.76 X 2.69m. There is also a second smaller bedroom (3.76 X 1.83m) that would be ideal for a child’s room, guest’s room or even a home office for those that have the option of working from home.
Lastly, the family bathroom features a shower over bath arrangement with a basin and W/C. This also has a very handy heated towel rail and a storage cupboard under the basin.
As we’ve alluded to, Clerkenwell is a great location for couples and families. There is so much available within walking distance and great travel options for those times when you need to venture a little further afield. The area is leafy, stylish and remarkably quiet for such a central location – it really offers the best of city life while also offering a high level of seclusion.
