Tavistock Square, London WC1
Situated on the second floor of this sought-after Art Deco mansion block in the heart of Bloomsbury is this wonderfully bright studio apartment. Tavistock Court is a prestigious eight-storey 1930’s residential building with the benefit of 24-hour porterage.
Accommodation measures approximately 343 sqft internally and is flooded with natural light due to its south-facing orientation. The building’s characterful lobby has two lifts and a grand original staircase that give access to the second floor. Once inside the apartment the wide entrance area has plenty of built-in storage. Straight ahead is the large bathroom with original Art Deco tiles. To the right is the living accommodation, a double-aspect studio room with high ceilings, original Crittall windows and a separate kitchen.
The original dramatic ziggurat-style Art Deco tiled fireplace remains intact, although currently boxed in for preservation.
The building itself has a red-brick façade adorned with several Art Deco friezes. Commissioned by the National Free Churches Council in January 1935, the prestigious development is positioned at the north-west corner of Tavistock Square overlooking the gardens.
Tavistock Square is one of Bloomsbury’s finest gardens and makes up part of the estate of the Duke of Bedford, taking its name from the title given to the Duke’s eldest son, the Marquess of Tavistock. It was developed in the 1820s by Thomas Cubitt and is known for its statues of Gandhi and Virginia Woolf.
Stations at Russell Square, Euston, King’s Cross and St. Pancras are within easy reach for the London Underground, mainline trains and the Eurostar. The apartment is well located for access to The British Museum, UCL, SOAS and all the academic institutions of Bloomsbury.
