GRADE II LISTED FREEHOLD HOUSE NEEDING MODERNISATION
An exciting opportunity to purchase one of the last remaining, freehold houses in Clerkenwell which needs modernising.
Located in the New River conservation area with a 29 ft garden, this Grade II listed Georgian house offers a wonderful opportunity to create a super home.
Tysoe Street dates to 1819, built on land then owned by the Marquis of Northampton with many of the houses designed by the acclaimed architect Samuel Pepys Cockerell.
It comprises a double reception room, dining room, kitchen, three double bedrooms and large bathroom. There are also two large vaults, a utility room, guest cloakroom and a wonderful wrought iron ornate balcony on the Piano Nobile.
Located between Rosebery Avenue and Wilmington Square and moments from Spa Green fields the house is a short walk to Exmouth Market, Amwell Street and Upper Street.
Transport links are superb with Angel Underground (Northern line) and Farringdon Station (Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City lines as well as mainline) a short walk away. There are also many bus routes which take you directly towards London's West End.
Rosebery Avenue is famed for Sadler's Wells Theatre, renowned as one of the world leading dance venues as well as the home to the New River Head, a site of considerable historic importance, developed by Sir Hugh Myddleton in the early 1600's, as a source of providing fresh drinking water for London.
Now Clerkenwell is one of London's most vibrant destinations regarded as London's Avant Garde design quarter with numerous bespoke shops, art galleries and designer furniture shops as well as been home to more Architect practises than anywhere globally.
It is easily walkable to the Inns of Court at Gray's Inn and Lincolns Inn as well as London financial district the City, not to mention over 5,000 tech companies and start-ups close to Old Street roundabout (now known as silicon roundabout). In fact, CNN European Network, HBO, Time Warner and Linked-in have recently moved headquarters to the area.
The Barbican centre which is found at the southern end of St John Street is part of the Global Cultural Districts Network and is the largest performing Art Centre in Europe, hosting music concerts, art exhibitions and film screenings.
A truly special and unique opportunity.
