Living In Bloomsbury

Bloomsbury is steeped in history, academia and culture. Its existence and notoriety can be traced back to the 1600's but it was primarily in the 19th century that The Duke of Bedford transformed the district into a majestic residential area.

Bloomsbury feels like a village within the heart of London. Famed for its historical residents, including Charles Dickens, Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury set. Bloomsbury Properties come in many different forms from beautiful Georgian houses, 18th century mansion buildings, tasteful modern developments and new apartments. Hurford Salvi Carr have been instrumental in marketing new homes for sale and to rent in the area and also act for The Bedford Estates since 1996 in renting out their large portfolio of luxury apartments in WC1.

Bloomsbury's popularity like its residents are understated. Bloomsbury WC1 has an established a steady residential sales and lettings housing market with a melting pot of people choosing to live here; academics, financial services, legal and creative industries all choosing Bloomsbury as their home.
