This substantial double-fronted six-bedroom Georgian house is located on one of Clerkenwell’s finest terraces. It was refurbished by the current owner in collaboration with Charles Tashima Architecture, and combines period and modern detailing to beautiful effect.
The internal accommodation measures approximately 3,387 sq ft over four floors. Upon entering, there is an elegant reception room with fireplace to one side of the hallway, and a study and guest cloakroom to the other. Beyond is a spectacular reception room and kitchen, contained within an extension. The original wall and sash windows of the rear elevation have been left on show. A pitched glazed rooflight provides a link between the old and the new, and can be retracted almost entirely to welcome in the open air and the sky. A series of skylights set between the rafters provide further natural light. There is a small reception room off this space, and a walk-in pantry and utility room behind the kitchen.
The first floor contains the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a second bedroom, and a study with full-height glazing that opens onto a generous roof terrace. The second floor contains two further bedrooms, a bathroom and a second roof terrace. There is also a children’s play area accessed via a ladder from the landing.
The lower ground floor is set up as separate staff accommodation with its own access, and is partly contained within the old vaults of the house. This has a reception room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a shower room. The property has extensive and inventive storage space throughout.
Clerkenwell is renowned for the quality and variety of its bars and restaurants, and the facilities of Islington, Bloomsbury and Exmouth Market are all within close proximity. The City is within walking distance to the south. The nearest public transport links are Farringdon Station (London Underground Circle Line, Hammersmith & City Line and Metropolitan Line and National Rail services) and Angel Station (London Underground Northern Line).
