This grand building is a fine example of Victorian, Venetian Gothic architecture, whose design was very much in vogue within London during the mid to late 1800s. Now Grade II listed, it is located on the corner of Farringdon Road and Greville Street and benefits from a day porter. Designed by the Architects Arding and Bond (1873-1875), the building was occupied by Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co who were renowned engravers, printers of bank notes, postage stamps and share certificates. The building was re-modelled behind its original faade circa 1990 by GML Architects, marking the first foray into the central London market for Berkeley Homes, who worked closely with the conservation officers at the time restoring the external brick and stone work. This fine apartment which has been re-modernised by the current owners is quietly situated facing onto Greville Street and Saffron Hill with generous accommodation comprising, master bedroom with ensuite shower room, two further double bedrooms, guest bathroom, reception room and separate kitchen. Local transport links are superb as Farringdon Station with access to the Circle, Metropolitan, Hammersmith and City Underground lines as well as Mainline Station is a mere 100 meters away. In addition by 2020/21 Farringdon will benefit from the opening of Crossrail, giving direct access to four of London's International airports as well as speedy access to Canary Wharf and the West End.
