The top floor houses the living space which is vast but intelligently zoned into comfortable living, reading and dining areas with a bespoke, open plan "Kvanum" kitchen which certainly makes a statement. The space is filled with sunshine with a roof light over the staircase, superb picture windows a front balcony and bi-folding doors which lead directly onto the terrace.
The terrace is an enchanting space designed by the celebrated architect and designer Nick Leith-Smith transforming a large area into a superb and romantic entertaining and relaxation sky garden with seating, lounging, eating and cooking spaces. The terrace also has two bar areas as well as an extra-large jacuzzi with an open-air shower.

Farringdon underground and main line station is a short stroll away with access to the Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith and City lines, National rail and the recently opened Elizabeth Line.

The London Museum's relocation to the Southern end of the abandoned Smithfield Market is underway, receiving £180m by the City and London Mayor and is planned to open in 2026 creating new gallery space as well as options for larger events and exhibitions.
Clerkenwell first became a fashionable place to live in the 17th century as a destination where Londoners enjoyed tea gardens, theatres and spas: in fact, you can still see part of Clerks' Well after which Clerkenwell was named. The area later became famous as a centre for clock and watchmaking alongside the jewellers and goldsmiths of Hatton Garden. It remains one of the best-preserved village centres in central London - a vibrant modern community with a fascinatingly rich history.
All walks of life now aspire to call Clerkenwell home from the financial and legal sectors wanting to be within a short walk of their offices as well as the ever-growing creative sector, design, fashion and tech markets ever passionate about these wonderful spaces.
Clerkenwell has been described as the London equivalent of New York's East Village, but with more notable and diverse architecture and a rich history. With great shopping and tremendous diversity of acclaimed restaurants, bars, galleries and wine bars it remains one of London's best kept secrets.
