Quintessential Bloomsbury with a touch of Bohemian Swagger

About the apartment

This classic two-bedroom apartment is situated on the lower ground floor of one of Bloomsbury finest mansion blocks, Ridgmount Gardens.

Consisting of two double bedrooms with high ceilings and sash windows throughout, a reception room with fireplace, separate galley kitchen and family bathroom with bath.

This apartment has been modernised in recent years but retains the period charms of a mansion block apartment. Well propositioned and ideal for a central London base.

About the building

Ridgmount Gardens was built in the 1890s and since its birth has been regarded as a quintessential Bloomsbury address. With a number of notable residents, novelist and scholars alike.

Most interestingly in 1972, No 34 Ridgmount Gardens was the first London residence of a little-known musician, Bob Marley. He moved into the apartment in-between tours and it was in the cold  winter of 1972 that he played his first London gig at a speakeasy a short walk away in Fitzrovia.

It’s a nice to think of the dichotomy of traditional Bloomsbury residents and bohemian swagger that must have been pumping out of No 34. I imagine the porters had a busy year…
