This spectacular double fronted house is located in a quiet, private mews development in the heart of Clerkenwell.

This unique house combines an attractive mews aspect with a modern and spacious "loft style", and is arranged over three floors boasting a wonderful combination of lateral entertaining space and plentiful sleeping space, with balconies and terraces on every level.
The current accommodation comprises a first floor lateral living space that includes a double reception room and a double height dining room, leading to a bespoke kitchen and guest cloakroom. This floor also benefits from two private roof terraces, leading from the reception room and the kitchen.
On the ground floor, there are four double bedrooms, three bathrooms, a utility room and two enclosed patio areas. The front bedroom also benefits from folding doors which open onto the private front garden. On the second floor, there is a sumptuous master bedroom with walk in dressing room and en-suite shower room. There is also a home office and a further double room on the second floor, which galleries over the dining room and also has a walk in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room, giving any incoming purchaser the choice of a further bedroom or a further reception room.
Compton Street is located off St John Street and runs parallel to Dallington Street, in the heart of Clerkenwell. The area is renowned for fine dining, with an abundance of quality restaurants and bars such as Hix, Granger, the St John, the Zetter Town House and the Modern Pantry.
