Our property of the week is a Legal Quarter gem.
About the House
Built in 1884, this red brick building may be mistaken for a bespoke townhouse designed for landed gentry however it was originally a warehouse until developers Marldon converted and modernised it into a generous and comfortable family house.
Flexible accommodation means that there can be 4 to 5 bedrooms and 2 to 3 reception rooms with 4 bathrooms. It is possible to have a study, media room and formal reception room in three distinct sections of the house although, unusually, the main entertaining space is on the upper levels where they benefit from the most light and features such as an open plan top level atrium rather than the traditional layout of living space and kitchen being on the lower floors with bedrooms towards the top. Accessibility is certainly not a problem as the house has a passenger lift in addition to a bespoke oak. Internal floorspace extends to 2,937 sq ft (273 sq m).
The house is both charming and contemporary and discreet in its location being tucked away close to the Inns of Court and moments from the River Thames.
Specification includes: media room with a 5.1 surround sound system and pre-wiring for a projector, outdoor courtyard, bespoke joinery to kitchen and wardrobes, underfloor heating, part air conditioning, Lutron lighting, passenger lift, Sonos music system.
